We took Will the Travelling Owl because sometimes it's just easier to bring him than it is to listen to him bitch because we didn't.
We landed at Broadway first, whereby Will demanded a photoshoot:
|Oh, we'll do what you want, little owl, |
but we're going to photobomb you.
You know we love the La Flor Dominicana Myster...oh, we mean TCFKAM (The Cigar Formerly Known As Mysterio). Will's also a fan.
|Will would like to own this box. Just sayin'...|
|Yep. These AB babies. Where the Nica Puro line all began...|
way back in 2012.
|This is a super favorite of the entire household!|
We were super surprised to find that Broadway had them, as few other folks do. So, if this is your great white whale that you relentlessly seek, run and get them!
P.S. We cropped the photo so you couldn't have your heart broken, as we did when we saw someone wrote the price on this gorgeous box in permanent marker.
|Will is saying, Ah, I remember when |
I was first to have one of these...
But we can also understand his desire to have them. We've loved them since Paul Joyle shared them with us pre-release. The Connecticut broadleaf wrapper and Dominican Habano binder work lovingly together to hold the Dominican and other Central American super secret fillers. Want to know more? You should go here!
|We turned away for one second and found Will |
rolling around in the box of another favorite cigar. Sigh.
If you haven't had a Leaf by Oscar, from our friend Island Jim Robinson, then let us know and we'll point you in the right direction. Wrapped in a tobacco leaf, this cigar is as awesome as it looks.
We have been remiss in telling you about our Brick House love, and promise to get to that soon, but in the meantime, here's an interesting story from their website: "In 1937, J.C. Newman launched Brick House; a true Cuban puro cigar made with the finest Havana tobaccos. To honor his family and heritage, J.C. modeled the Brick House label after his childhood home – the only brick house in their small, Hungarian village. Locals and visitors would gather at the house nightly to eat, drink, smoke and enjoy each other’s company. But with the Cuban embargo came the end of the Brick House." But you can't blow a brick house down, and they are back and waiting for you!
|Yes, Will likes the name of this cigar. Sigh. Again.|
Oh, we do go on, don't we? Check out Part the First and a Half here, and Part the Second here.
*But not today, Tuesday 1/27, because they are closed--as is the rest of Penny World because of, um...all the snow in the world being dumped on us!
**Always "he." We know very few local lady cigar smokers.
***We are horrible people. We know this. We know you love us anyway.
****Go to the right-hand side of the blog, scroll down, and click on Leaf. Then you'll see all the times we brought it up in casual conversation. Blogging conversation, that is.
*****Hey! We said the name of the blog!
******Everything in the humidor is delicious, so the search isn't a difficult one.
