The Habano Esteli by The House of Lucky Cigar. Well, that and a corny joke from yours truly.


This stick is straight Nica, with all the associated flavors. Very good construction and performance too. And she’s around $7 for a Toro. Not bad at all.

This is one of the many wonderful smokes which may be going the way of the Dodo thanks to the FDA and our friends in Washington (damn them all).

I must admit that upon first lighting I detected a bitterness in the smoke. It vanished and could have been a lingering product of my own mind – leftover thoughts about the UGA/Ole Miss game the day before. There followed a pleasant smoke – one that tasted much as the unlit cigar smelled. That is rare, as rare as sense in D.C.

Try one while you can.
