Golden slumbers fill your eyesYou have to either be "of a certain age" or a REAL Beatles freak to get the quote... but we digress, sorta. One of my favorite ladies in all the world... this lovely woman...
Smiles awake you when you rise
...awoke me from my frequent and periodic slumbers a while ago to put these in my hot lil hands:
Smiles, indeed. Followed immediately by a frown... as full-blown Happy Hour, which by necessity includes a good cigar... has been put on hold until sometime next week at the VERY earliest. I think mebbe I've grown up, as deferred gratification has NEVER been our method of operation in the past unless it was absolutely, positively required. Deferred gratification is most certainly required given my current situation, Gentle Reader. To do otherwise would be really stupid, and although I might look dumb...
About the second pic... After much experimentation, which includes the lovelies you see above, my former "cigar of choice," the immaculate Partagas Spanish Rosado (in the Familia size), has been replaced by most anything from Drew Estate. My last three orders from cigar.com have been two 14-cigar Acid samplers and a box of Acid Liquids, and each and every one of those cigars have been MOST excellent. The only size or version of Drew Estate cigars I'm not particularly fond of is the C-Note, which is a cigarillo and not a cigar, anyway.
All that said, isn't the packaging just lover-ly?
The cigars are packed in slightly crushed and dried tobacco leaves. I've never seen that before. Pretty cool, eh?
