What's your desert island cigar?
Since most cigar smokers are also collectors, I'd find it hard to believe that they would be able to single out one specific cigar, unless they were staring down the barrel of a gun.
Violent imagery aside, I'm not sure if I could select just one cigar. I think I speak for most cigar smokers when I say that I have too many favorites. Because I often choose a cigar based on the time of day, or more often, my mood, I've got my favorite mild cigars, medium-bodied cigars, and full-bodied cigars. What's even more frustrating is, if I mentioned the one cigar I would take with me, I'd insult the other cigar manufacturers I work with.
I will say this much: If I could only take one cigar, it would be a medium-bodied, but very full-flavored cigar with a sweet, nutty-woody base, earthy essences, and notes of coffee, caramel and cocoa on the finish. It would probably be blended with Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos, too.
That brings me back to you. If you suddenly decided to disappear from civilization, what ONE cigar would you bring? To be fair, make it a box; you're going to be gone awhile. Please let me know with a comment. And unless you know how to make a fire, don't forget the lighter fluid.
