01/05 - Smoking with Jeff

Jeff and his wife Faith are on a trip to Paris and Zurich... and took the chance to meet with me at Portmann in Kreuzlingen.

I've been in contact with Jeff for a while now and we've met the first time at a cigar herf in Orlando two years ago so I was really happen that he could make it to meet with me to smoke a cigar or two...

I picked them up at the station in Kreuzlingen and we walked together to Portmann where we'd some coffee and a first cigar of the day. Urs offered us the Vegas Robaina Petit Unicos, the Regional Edition for Switzerland from 2012. I smoked now a few of those and honestly they don't really impress me... it'll be easy to pass on them.

Later we'd a fantastic Montecristo Especial from 1997... it's always a pleasure to smoke those... on the other hand it makes you sad when think about the fact that the Cubans cancel more and more of those slim cigars... a damn shame!

We'd a quick lunch later, another cigar... and then it´s about time for Jeff and Faith to take the train back to Zurich... this whole day went by so fast... unbelievable... but we'd a lot of good conversation and I was happy to meet Jeff again and his wife Faith for the first time... I´m definitely looking forward to our next get-together... either in the States or here in Switzerland...
