Up In Smoke

I don’t smoke cigarettes, I don’t smoke weed, and I don’t smoke anything you have to buy at a dimly lit street corner from a guy with shifty eyes that smells like a musty basement and bad decisions.  But I will smoke a cigar without question or hesitation.  My grandfather used to sit out on my front porch when I was very young with his favorite cigar, blowing rings into the air as I played in the yard.  The smell of cigar smoke is very nostalgic for me, but I also simply enjoy the hell out of them.

My husband recently got a great deal on a pack of ten through an advertised deal he found in one of the many free magazine subscriptions we get delivered to the house every week.  To keep myself from dipping into his new supply, I got myself a few at the gas station to tide me over until I could find my own place to get a good deal from.  I won’t knock the gas station cigar; it’s an easy enough option and not pricey at all.  My last Speedway stogie burned out last night, so I need to go shopping for something with quality.

I stumbled upon Famous Smoke Shop and proceeded to get lost in their incredible selection.  I’ll be honest, I’m not a cigar connoisseur who knows brands and best locations to buy from, so the fact that they have a wide variety of samplers is perfect for me.  I also found a gorgeous foot locker humidor that I am seriously considering buying for my husband (hopefully he skips over this article).  I’m not into vaping myself, but I do have friends who are, so I’ve knocked out a few Christmas gifts as well thanks to their selection.

I am very excited to say that I have some amazing cigars heading my way in the very near future!  With the weather finally cooperating, I’m looking forward to enjoying some nights out on the porch, encased in a cloud of smoke with my husband.  Once he and I are able to try the Famous Smoke collection, I will be posting a review.  Now all I need to worry about is what whiskey best pairs with what cigar.  The possibilities are endless; a shame my wallet isn’t as well…

  1. I enjoy smoking cigars myself, Jamie, especially after a big meal. I had a chance to smoke some of the finest cigars in the world recently in Havana, Cuba. US citizens are now allowed to bring up to $100 worth of cigars and rum back home (1 bottle limit). Besides cigars, I picked up a liter of excellent 7 year old Havana Club rum in the airport’s duty free shop ($20).
