It was a pretty decent day, weather wise. Above 50. I sat on my deck and had an Ezra Zion Chocolate Porter and talked with a younger brother I haven't seen much in the last 10 years. It was a good day.
I still have no idea where we are going to be, some family issues are keeping people in fighting. There is about a 60-40 chance I will be at home. Which means after dinner the family will be inside yacking away and I will sneak out to the garage to smoke and watch football. Which will end up what I normally do and blindly reach into my desktop humidor and hope for the best.
My employer pays me to (among other things) write cigar reviews, so I don't write them for other parties or venues. But I must say, the Cigar Federation Factory Direct Boutique "Honey Badger" is one of the best cigars for the money I have yet to find -- and it is with one of those that I spent the past hour this Thanksgiving evening. I think I've gone through 15 of them to date, and tonight I broke down and ordered 30 more. Really, just a splendid cigar.
Of course, that's just me. We all know, body chemistry dictates how any particular smoke will strike any one of us. But the Honey Badger scratches me right where I itch. Wish I could splurge on a lifetime supply of them, but even though the price is right, I still have other bills to pay. At any rate, my hat is off to Cigar Federation for having brought us the Honey Badger. Bravo!
