Most fascinating people of 2009


Tonight (Wed. Dec. 9th) Barbara Walters will reveal her 10 most fascinating people of 2009.  She clarifies… we’re not talking about the most news-worthy or the most reported on.  She claims that all the people on her list are people we didn’t know about 2 years ago (with the exception of Brett Favre… although you could argue he is in the general publics awareness much more now than 2 years ago).  Her list is as follows…

  • Lady Gaga
  • Glenn Beck
  • Tyler Perry
  • Kate Gosselin
  • Adam Lambert
  • Sarah Palin
  • Brett Favre
  • Jenny Sanford
  • Michael Jackson’s three children
  • *Mystery Guest*
  • Speculation is that Taylor Swift will be the mystery guest, and possibly THE most fascinating person.  I heard a man ask, “what about Tiger Woods?  He’s pretty fascinating now.”  Dennis Miller said it well when he said “there’s a difference between fascination and rubber-necking the train wreck.”

    This got me thinking about who my most fascinating people of 2009 would be.  You know what… I couldn’t really come up with my own, original list.  So, in no particular order, I give you a few of my top cigars smoked in 2009:

    Cain— A brand new cigar put out this year from the makers of Nub.  I typically don’t “taste” a lot of various or strong flavors in cigars, but from the first draw I can say with certainty that this cigar is nutty.  Now, I hesitate to describe anything as “nutty” because I immediately think of Austin Powers as he drinks a beaker full of poo, thinking it is coffee, and describes it as nutty.  However, there is no other word to describe the taste of the Cain.  It was a great, clean, smooth smoke.

    La Gloria Cubana Serie R #6— One of my favorite, “go to” smokes.  I always enjoy this cigar and it is definitely something I enjoy when life is up (or down), good (or tough), and if I’ve had a great week (or a crappy one).

    Rocky Patel 1990— I have smoked a few of these cigars before, but a friend really pointed out to me the consistency in flavor, burn, construction, etc of the RP.  If I find myself in a humidor looking for a smoke, it is hard not to gravitate immediately to the Rocky’s… I know what I’m getting and I know it is good.

    Casa Magna Colorado Robusto— This cigar was rated as the top smoke of 2008 by Cigar Aficionado.  That is the sole reason I sought out this cigar.  It is powerful, flavorful, and not for the rookie cigar smoker.

    If you’re a cigar smoker, let me know what some of your favorites are…
