10/25 - Smoke in the valley and the house

Part One: Smoke in the valley

Another grey and foggy day in the valley, looks like a lot of smoke... so I took the chance to drive a few km from home, uphill and over the fog and clouds...

The Hohe Hirschberg is on app. 1´100 m and was a perfect sunny place to enjoy a cigar and a beer before my Canadian friend would pick me up in the late afternoon...

Part Two: Smoke in the house - dinner at the Longhorn BBQ Smokehouse

When I came home I just had the time to take a quick shower before Marc arrived and we made a ride to Vaduz to Portmann where we tried the new Romeo y Julieta Petit Churchill... I´m no big fan of that "raping" of the name Churchill, for me there´s only ONE real Churchill, which´s a great cigar. This one doesn´t fulfill any expectations... boring smoke, no risk that I´m looking for them in the future.

We spent the rest of the evening in the Longhorn BBQ Smokehouse in Dornbirn ( good BBQ stuff, good cigars and good conversations... it´s always a pleasure to meet those guys...

We´ll see again at the Springbank Vertical Tasting in the Griffins Business Lounge tomorrow... maybe after Marc and I made a trip to the Saentis, depending on the weather, but I guess it should be fine and we´ll spend a great day...
