77 responses when asked to put your cigar out

Some of these are good and should be remembered and used, some are rude and arrogant, but mostly these are all quite funny.

1. “Is it the cigar smoke that bothers you, or the sight of someone enjoying himself?”
2. (The Response Literal:) “Put out this cigar? Seems kind of silly, but sure. Now wait a sec while I light another…”
3. (The Response Coy:) “I’d love to, but I’m afraid you’d think I’m easy.”
4. (The Response Ingenuous:) “What a coincidence! You’re the third person to ask me tha—oh, it’s you again.”
5. (The Response Juvenile:) “Who died and made you the Fun Patrol?”
6. (The Response Existential:) “What does it matter?”
7. (The Response Newlywed:) “Gosh, darling, our first fight. And just think, we’ll be able to repeat it every time I light up.”

Rum and Cigar Pairing

Enjoy a Flor de Las Antillas cigar from My Father Cigars (Cigar Aficionado’s #1 cigar for 2012). These cigars have a gentle, rounded box press and a beautiful and evenly colored wrapper. The smokes are delicious from the first puff, with notes of nutmeg, white pepper and just enough strength without being overpowering. They are hard to put down. They are classics, 96-point smokes on Cigar Aficionado’s 100-point scale.

Then sample four fantastic rums from four different countries:

Flor De Cana: Flor De Cana 18yr- This stunning amber rum is full-bodied, with a rich complexity of flavors and a smooth finish that stays with you, long after the swallow. Flor de Caña Centenario 18 has almost two decades in the making, and you can taste the craftsmanship and tradition in every drop.

Zaya: Zaya Gran Reserva’s proprietary recipe is hand blended with 3-5 rums aged in oak barrels for no less than 12 years. Creating a truly alluring and sophisticated rum that is sure to elevate the evening.

Don Q: Don Q Gran Anejo- Aging mellows a spirit. It also brings out new flavors and aromas. Our Gran Añejo contains a blend of rums aged between 3 and 12 years and Solera rums aged up to 20 years, creating a balance between sweet and dry that you won’t get in other spirits. Drink it on the rocks, drink it neat. If you must, add a splash of ginger (we won’t tell anyone). Drink it slow, and share a moment with your friends.

Ballast Point Three Sheets Barrel Aged: They say everything gets better with age. This rum is no exception. We age our white rum like a bourbon for two years in virgin American oak barrels, introducing hints of toffee and caramel that give way to flavors of vanilla and tobacco. This rum can hold its own in any whiskey cocktail, but we like it served neat. And sipped slowly.

$35.00 – Limit 30 people

Uneven Cigar Burn

Fix a bad cigar burnIf your cigar starts to burn unevenly, you might be able to get it straightened out just by rotating the cigar, but the method seems counter-intuitive. If you have a stogie that’s burning crooked, turn the cigar so the side that’s burning fastest is on top. It would make sense to turn the unburned end to the top since heat rises, right? Regardless of the seeming logic, doing so will achieve the opposite effect.

Remember, many things can affect the way cigars burn. These include humidity, wind, cigar construction, and how you hold the cigar when not puffing.  Watch your cigar, and rotate it once in a while and you will have an enjoyable experience and an even cigar burn.
