A friend gifted us with one of these magnificent lil jewels recently:
That would be an Opus X in the ashtray. I told my friend I was gonna save this lil bit o' excellence for the next semi-nice day here on The High Plains of New Mexico... the sort of day where I could enjoy the cigar in proper style, which is to say with a couple o' fingers of single malt. Well, I'm gonna embellish the single malt just a lil bit, to wit:
Gilding the lily? Perhaps. But a lil gilt never hurt anything and has enhanced more than a few things... single malt included. Sláinte!
Update... later that same day:
We're in the process of smoking that Opus-X right down to a nub... and it is GOOD. Beyond belief, actually. I'm supremely indebted to great good friends, and I do not exaggerate one lil bit. Dang. There could be but only one circumstance that could improve upon this day... and we shall not wish for what is beyond our grasp. We'll just enjoy what is... and it is good, indeed.
