Thursday we had a great Thanksgiving breakfast with our kids and grandkids, then had a low key, but delicious, Turkey feast with other family members. After the dust settled, I picked out a cigar for my evening walk. I couldn’t get past the top tray in the humidor where a La Flor Dominicana Cameroon Cabinet Chisel. I bought this cigar a few months back at a LFD event and it, along with a Double Ligero Chisel and a few others. The Chisel is 6″ x 54 and the wrapper is a Cameroon Ligero, which I suppose isn’t all that unusual, but you don’t see it specified very often. I tried using a V cut vertically across the Chisel tip, but that proved unsatisfactory so I snipped it with the scissors. The draw was perfect and it burned very nicely, as I walked off the turkey and stuffing. I love the sweetness that the Cameroon wrapper has, and it’s a different sweetness than a Broadleaf or San Andrés wrapper. This was a very nice way to wrap up a nice day of feasting with family. I swear the band said “Cameroon Cabinets” with an “S” at the end, but I haven’t moved my band vase yet either so I can’t double check.
Friday we rented the U-haul and moved a bunch of stuff to the new house. After 8 hours of moving furniture capped by a lengthy phone call with Verizon about the newly installed service which didn’t work properly, I was simply too tired to have a cigar. So Saturday, after a full day of doing things around the house, I took Macha for a walk in the new neighborhood with another lazy selection from the top shelf of the humidor, a Sindicato Maduro Toro. I actually haven’t even gotten all my cigars moved yet, so I’ve been working out of one of the humidors I did bring along. Don’t worry, I have plenty of cigars in the humidors I did bring to last me a while. Anyway, the Sindicato Maduro is a box pressed, pigtailed 6×54 toro with a Mexican San Andrés Morrón wrapper. These are made in the Casa Fernandez factory and blended by Arsenio Ramos with binder from Esteli and fillers from Esteli and Jalapa. The result is a sweet, earthy perfectly constructed cigar that took me away from my sore back for a while. I got to finish the cigar in my screened in porch, where many cigars will be smoked from here on out. I can’t wait to get things squared away in this new house as having things in two places is a nuisance.
I’m going to get a room painted and try to start getting the groundwork laid for the 12 Spectacular Days of Cigar Giveaways now that most of the goodies are here. I’ll feel a little less stress if I get some pictures taken and some posts written in advance. That’s all I have for today, until the next time,
