I'll tell you straight up and proudly: The best classes I ever took? Latin. I wish I could still take Latin and then I wish someone else in the world knew it as well as me and we'd be the smartest people in the room.
Unfortunately, no Latin in college or anywhere else. I do still have my Latin textbooks from high school though! ::sits back in cigar lounge and reminisces, silently conjugating the noun for farmer*::
Speaking of farmers, the La Flor Dominicana folks have kicked some serious ass with their newest offering: La Nox.
|The La Nox box**|
The deets, thanks to Cigar Aficionado:
"The most significant of the La Flor releases was the new La Nox cigar, which features a Brazilian Cubra maduro wrapper, Mexican San Andrés binder and a filler mix of Dominican Piloto and Pelo de Oro tobaccos. This dark smoke, which will ship in boxes of 10, was released in one size only, a 6 1/2 inch by 50 ring gauge Churchill."
At the International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers (IPCPR) expo/convention/thingamabob in New Orleans last week, SuperFriend LFD John (as opposed to LFD Jon, who is a completely different person) handed us this, the shiniest of all the shining stars the company showcased.
As we strolled into the show's LFDland, my heart giggled when I saw this tiny little bit of Latin: La Nox. (Look, I take nerdy pleasure where I can get it. I'm wicked captiosus.***) So yes, here it is.
|Valentino's exact-ish quotation:|
"Hoc est fucking praestantes."
So...As we proclaimed on Facebook, This cigar is fucking outstanding.
Thank you, agricolae and all the others who worked to make this cigar amazing! Er, I mean, fucking outstanding.
**Hahahaha and LOL
***Smaht, as we say here in New England
