This weekend I was on my brother in laws Stag weekend in rainy Bristol.
As we arrived the rain was pouring. I packed a MonteCristo Edmundo and a Cohiba Esplendidos for the trip and was hoping to smoke both over the 2 days.
Due to the fantastic British weather, I only got to smoke the Cohiba…..at 5am while watching the sun rise by the quayside.
Although I was still drunk and slowly falling asleep, I had a great company with me in my mate Mark.
The Cigar had been sitting in my humidor since I purchased a box in Cuba back in 2008.
It had slightly dried a bit but was still in a good condition to smoke. The cigar was rich in flavour and had a great leathery taste to it.
Unfortunately at 5am, its hard to find a nice rum to complement the cigar so I had to stick with a left over Carlsberg from my room.
Still it didn’t disappoint. For a fuller flavour smoke I recommend the Cohiba Esplendidos, perhaps after a big meal with red wine…not after a dirty Kebab with a Carlsberg lol
