Most of my cigar smoking has been on my drive back and forth to work. I tend to be a rather aggressive driver, so I like to think that the cigar helps calm me down, and makes me just get in line with rush-hour traffic like everyone else. I make sure I have ample time to both smoke the cigar and make it to work on time. It also means that, while I can enjoy the cigar, I won’t be taking notes about it. I won’t be jotting things down when I get to work either. I just have to file it all away in my head.
I’ve really cut back on the reviews, and there are a few reasons for that. Firstly, it takes time to actually sit down and write a review. The process adds more time to smoking the cigar. The physical writing of the review also takes time, and that time would otherwise be spent with my daughter. I was also finding that, since I was smoking with a review in mind, the process was distracting from the review. Sitting down with a cigar to review wasn’t any fun. I like cigars. I like good cigars. But I don’t like doting on the cigar while I’m smoking it. In the future I’ll likely just continue with the short snaps like I’ve done with the Gurkha and PDRs. I have also felt that, now that I’m working for a B&M store, that there would come some question to my credibility. While I know I can remain neutral going into a review, I know others still might question.
If you really want to know what I’ve been smoking, then by all means check out my Instagram. I usually get off at least one photo a day of the cigars that I’m smoking. You can even ask, via the Intragram apps, what I think there as well.
Baby’s up, time for me to quit typing. The best cigar is the one you’re smoking.
