...But sometimes it's more than a smoke.
“Brothers, a cigar is not just a private pastime, but the start of a conversation…“ This was the advice of Grand Master Jackson when he handed out cigars to the Masons he met during his term of office.“...If you take this cigar, you're telling me you will enjoy it while talking to another brother about how to improve your lodge.”
We follow that advice, in that smoking for smoking’s sake isn’t our goal, but instead, many of us enjoy a carefully selected 'stick' in the great company of the brothers.
Our conversations have a purpose. Yeah, we talk about work, our families, sports - manly stuff - but we always come around to the topic of our lodges.
A good cigar, for many of us, helps that conversation along.
One of our pallies owns Golden Leaf Cigar Shop
, and we’re pleased to send him our regular business. The smokes pictured in our desktop humidor include some nice Marco V's, an excellent house brand found at Golden Leaf. Others in the photo - and in our humidors at home - include St. Luis Rey, La Gloria Cubana, or Rocky Patel cigars of any type. One of the fellows swears by the Perdomo Habano line. Another likes fat 66 ring gauge Nat Sherman 'Bankers', and a third is partial to Cain products. We all like Opus X - who wouldn't? - and occasional rare and aromatic selections from a certain island 90 miles south of Key West. So close, yet so Foreign!
