You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once. - Robert A. Heinlein -

Ok, vacation is a good post for this.Do you remember the cigar you'd mailed to me, oh, about 8 or 9 years ago? With the leather-wrapped glass tube?Well, I finally pulled it from the humidor, where it's been aging in perfect condition, lo these many years.Sparked it up out on the front porch, late afternoon shade, cool breeze on a hot day.The stogie was a Don Collins, labeled "Puerto Rico". About a 48x6, Double Corona size, just short of a Churchill. Blonde wrapper, but didn't appear to be Connecticut Shade. Something else, but I don't know?I've got to tell you, that was one fine cigar. Milder than my norm, but with a smooth, tasty, kind of "Bailey's Irish Crème" type of smoke. No bite at all, smooth and easy draw.All in all, a fine cigar, and I'm sure, all the better for the ageing.So, once again, years later, THANKS, amigo! I did truly appreciate that smoke.Now, you and the Raging Mrs. gotta make it down to South Texas again someday. Burn some more gunpowder, eh?JimSunk New DawnGalveston, TX
I do remember that cigar. It was grown, aged and rolled all in Puerto Rico; that was their claim to fame. If you ever find yourself in Old San Juan, you have to stop in at their store.And the Mrs. and I might just end up in Texas, depending on what Uncle Sam says in a few years. Until then, if I'm going to be in the neighborhood I'll let you know.
