I like to watch cigar reviews online and see how different people review cigar and in the course of watching some of those reviews, I have heard them talk about things that I am amazed at some of the nuances I have heard them identify
This gave me an idea for a video cigar review, that is unlike any you have ever seen and I’m going to call it “Cigar Humor” and hopefully you will find this to be a smoking review!
This is only humor
I want to tell you upfront that this is just humor. My twisted way of poking fun at something that at times I find quite entertaining.
I am not trying to take anything away from those who do cigar reviews.
When you see a review of a cigar, what you are witnessing is that individual’s perception of something in that stick. The tobacco was not grown or aged with cinnamon or spices or coffee. What they are saying is that something in the smoke reminds them of that flavor.
There really are people out there who have very refined palletes, and can pick out very distinct nuances in the tobacco.
A little bit of truth
I’m just having some fun here and even though this is satire, I will explain to you that there is a certain amount of truth to the fact that what we eat or drink can influence what we pick up in a cigar.
For instance, I Like to sometimes have a mocha cappuccino with a Nub Cafe. What this does for me, is it seems to intensify a chocolaty essence in the smoke.
There are things that we can drink, to cleanse our pallet, if we don’t want any influence when doing a review, or if we just want to taste the pure flavor of a cigar.
Water is one of those, quite often I will just have a bottle of water when smoking a cigar so I can recognize more of the flavors in my cigar.
Black coffee will also cleanse the pallet allowing the nuances to come through.
Quite often you will hear someone talking about looking forward to having a steak dinner and the cigar afterwords, this is because a good steak will bring out some of the flavors in the cigar.
This is a fun job
My job is a blast and I have so much fun doing it and hopefully one day it will pay the bills, but along the way I will strive to keep it entertaining for me and for you.
A long time ago, I had a friend who told me “don’t take life too serious, none of us are getting out alive”
I have tried to remember this as I have made this journey and as a result, I have lived a life that for the biggest part has been most enjoyable.
I am very grateful that I got into cigars back in 2009 (I’m just a newcomer) and have been amazed by the people whom I have met in this cross section of the earth’s population.
They come from all walks of life and all parts of the world and are some of the kindest, most passionate people I have met.
So with this in mind, I hope that no one will take offense at this video as it is only meant to perform the two functions that I strive for with this blog “to educate and entertain”?
If I hurt anyone’s feelings, that was not my intent. I truly do admire those of you with the very sensitive pallet who can pick so much out of a cigar.
When I listen to your reviews, I sometimes feel like I am missing a lot in the cigars I smoke and wish I had your sensitivity.
I will always be grateful for what you have taught me about how to move the smoke in my mouth and retro hale. This in itself has expanded my horizons.
Smoking cigars should be fun
Smoking a cigar should be fun and I hope that you will have a laugh at this while enjoying one of your favorite sticks, with some of your cigar pals.
I also hope you will share this with others. I put a lot of passion and work into these posts as all who use our creativity to promote the pleasure of cigar smoking do.
I would like to give thanks to my editor and girl friend Deb for preparing all the food used in this video and supporting me in this Cigar Pals endeavor.
No animals were injured in the filming or writing of this blog post.
I hope you have enjoyed my cigar humor and found it to truly be a smoking review!
I need to remind y’all, that I need you to look at more than one post when you go to my site, because if you just check out one and leave, Google thinks your not interested and considers that a bounce and it hurts my SEO, which just means, how Google ranks my blog.
As always, please leave comments or questions below and this really helps me out with Google, especially if you say something about the title of the page, which are the keywords that I am trying to rank with.
Thanks for checking in!
