You can probably remember a time in the not-so-distance past when you felt like all that you had on your plate left you completely under water.

We’ve all hit that point during a smoke, usually about half way through, in which the cigar’s flavors and aromas open up and transform the experience into something far more rich, complex, and enjoyable.

“It is more important to be kind, than it is to be right.” Those words were spoken over my wife and I on our wedding day. Our officiant did an incredible job and she spoke with wisdom all throughout her message. But this line is one that has stuck with me more particularly than many […]
