A Good Cigar Today

I started writing a good cigar not as a way to name specific cigars. I started writing this to evoke a feeling. That feeling you get with the stars align into the perfect place in time and space where everything clicks. The mood is right. The music is right. Or the silence is just that....silent.

That place where the lighting is perfect. The temperature goes unnoticed. That place where the cigar you have right now is a good cigar.

Maybe it is The Good Cigar. You know. The perfect one. And we could talk brands all day, we have all smoked a good number of cigars in our day. But when everything hits that perfect moment in time you have a good cigar.

My good cigar would be sitting in front of a fire on a nice winter evening. The snow is falling outside, it is bitterly cold. Inside it is nice and warm, with a fire crackling in the fireplace. A good bourbon in my glass, and a good cigar in my hand.

That is a good cigar, my friends.
