I don't want to jinx it, but I don't think we've ever had a summer quite as nice as this one. Rumor has it that the last few months have actually been drier here than Las Vegas and Palm Springs. Amazing, but true. I wonder if this is what it feels like to live in Southern California? Doubt it...
Anyway, we were down at the Tobacco Patch on Friday night for the Drew Estate event - pretty good turnout and of course the weather was perfect. I bought a few of the Liga Privada Undercrown sticks as well as a flavor infused cigar for my lovely bride. Met the Rep for Drew Estate too - nice guy!
The Washington Cigar and Spirits Festival coming up on Saturday, the 13th. I'm sure you've heard me mention it a few times? Boy, if you haven't bought your tickets by now, you might be outta luck. Check the link to see if tickets are still available. I'll be there along with the rest of the Kirkland gang. Should be fun, fun, fun!!!
Also a little further down the line, coming up November 3rd, The 10-7 Bond Night Event, which I'm really looking forward to! A black-tie Gala for the true 007 cigar smoking fanatic, like me!
OK, so one real quick review of the Curivari El Gran Rey cigar. This was given to me by a good friend and I'm just now getting around to checking it out.
Basically it's a full-bodied Nicaraguan cigar that I didn't really care for it when I first lit it up, but the next thing I knew I just couldn't put the sucker down. What's up with that? The exceptionally smooth full flavor, plus loads of rich smoke seemed to grow on me. Next thing I knew the white ash was burning my fingertips. Really a good cigar.
Would I buy one again? Well, I didn't actually buy this one, but with so many cigars out there to choose from, honestly I'd have to say, Yes, I would! Kind of a nice change for me. ;)
Congrats to my friend Nathan for the new addition to the family! Job well done amigo!
