THE ensuing days blur into a momentous series of experiences; intertwined and overlaid in a long, hot mirage of wonder.
TORVILLE and Dean; Boycott and Edrich; fish and chips – cigars and ice cream? The alchemy of pairing your smokes with food and drink is yet another of the wonderfully layered aspects to our endless fascination with cigars.
Oh Lordy, it’s that time again. What on earth am I going to get the man or woman who has everything? Christmas comes but once a year, so they say, although it feels more like twice or thrice by the time December 25 finally rolls round, such is the brouhaha served up in the previous couple of months.
There things that naturally go as well with cigars as fish does with chips or Lennon does with McCartney. Think cigars and Scotch, cigars and Cognac, cigars and coffee, cigars and celebrations. There are also things that may need a bit more shoehorning together, but nonetheless work. Ever tried a Cuban cigar with good vanilla ice cream, for instance? Amazing.
