It’s an absolutely magnificent day here in Copenhagen, Denmark. Unfortunately, today has not been a good day for me. Why you ask? Thanks for asking!

Because here it is, 5:30 on a beautiful day, and I still haven’t smoked a cigar. So we came to Nyhavn, a colorful 17th century waterfront canal, filled with tourists and overpriced mediocre restaurants.

I saw a perfect waterfront table for sitting down and smoking at a nearby tourist restaurant, albeit without ashtrays on the tables. So I proceeded to ask the gentleman working there, “Pardon me, are we able to smoke here?” He looked back at me with a silly grin, saying, “Of course you can smoke here, we’re outside!” Then I had to explain to him that in the United States, we are not free to smoke at outdoor restaurants, even though we are outside. OH WHAT A PLEASURE IT IS to be able to sit outside, enjoy a good meal, and smoke a cigar.

I sat down and I lit myself a Bolivar Short Belicoso Limitadas 2009. Out came my creamy fish soup and I realized I couldn’t taste my cigar anymore! It’s very mild and lacking full flavor. LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO BE SMOKING A CIGAR YOU ARE NOT THOROUGHLY ENJOYING! In accordance with my own rule, I proceeded to change to a Hoyo de Monterrey short Belicoso Limitada 2011. This cigar is more complex, more full bodied, rich and tasty.. A better accompaniment to my creamy fish soup on the harbor.
