I'm back

Hi everybody.

Remember me? Well, I'm back.  By popular demand no doubt.

In case you wondered, I didn't go anywhere, I've been here the whole time.

Well not here.  Not right here.  I've obviously been places.  Not many places mind.  But a few.  Nice places mostly.

Anyway, I'm going to kick off this come back special, with a with a new cigar that arrived in the post today from C.Gars Ltd, called the Inka secret blend - Azul blue Bombaso Maduro. 

A beautiful looking budget cigar, dark and squishy, that I paired with a pressed apple and beetroot juice.

Apple and what? I hear you scream.  Pressed??  What's happening here? Is this a new me?  Healthy-not-from-concentrate fruit juice instead of unhealthy-not-from-concentrate beer juice?  Might be.

I must admit, after a recent trip to Ireland (to celebrate Gillian Doyles birthday), I felt hung-over for at least two weeks, and suffered like never before, and with the belly taking a lot more effort to keep in check these days, it was time I curbed my enthusiasm.

At least on a Tuesday evening in the garden.

The Inka was nice smoke.  A bit too strong for what I wanted at the time, and it also lasted longer than I planned, but I enjoyed it, and it only needed the odd relight and touch up along the way. 

Next time I've got a shorter stumpier cigar to report on.  So until then, and I promise I won't leave it as long next time.

  1. Belated congrats on the arrival of the newbie! I have to say, when my kids were little I wouldn't have had time for a blog or cigars either (of course, there was no such thing as a blog then, the internet was barely available to the public. :-)

    I'm looking forward to trying the Inka maduros, I've had a few Red naturals and they were terrific. Pricey for the US market, but Mitchell says they fly off his shelves.

    Good luck!
