05/31 - World No-Tobacco Day

Maybe you get shocked when you read this headline on my blog... but hey: yesterday it was world no-tobacco day... and luckily there was a torcedor from Cuba at Marc Portmanns shop in Vaduz, Ernesto Torres Alma from the La Corona factory.

I started the day with a really great Diplomaticos No. 4 from 1986... many people dislike that brand, calling those sticks flavorless, boring... but I love them.

In the afternoon I went to Vaduz, where I smoked a Robusto and a Laguito No. 1 "con mucho ligero"... as always...

  1. what is your thought on the Trini from 98?
    Is it a truly classic?
    I am thinking to buy a box I ve found.
    Thank you, and wishes for the days!

    1. Oh yes, the 1998 Fundadores is a true classic. If you can get a box of those you should take the chance.
