I finally had a chance to smoke the Casa Magna Colorado Robusto, designated by Cigar Aficionado as the #1 cigar in 2008– that has made it a tough cigar to find.
I smoked a couple of these beauties playing in the Harp’s Charity Golf tournament at Pinnacle Hills C.C., site of an annual professional golf tournament. It was a great experience– made so by the 62 our team shot (my putter absolutely on fire), and a couple of Casa Magnas.
I have found that I have to be careful what type of cigars I smoke when I play golf. A good cigar on each side can contribute to good tempo and maintaining mental balance. A strong cigar makes me tell goofy jokes and I putt like a 5th grader who sneaked a six-pack of wine coolers from his mom’s stash. A strong cigar on each side likens me to the 8th grader doing jello-shots with college kids– a rapid, sudden, and uncontrollable loss of balance and, well, my tummy feels a little funny.
My next “hard to find” smoke is to be the God of Fire by Arturo Fuente. Christmas is coming…
