The Cigar Nut

Can you believe it – another year notched onto the belt, successes, failures and everything in between. I think it is safe to say that the Mayans were wrong this year and thank goodness because I have way too many cigars to smoke and not enough time! I hope you all are able to reflect back on 2012 and at least say “you know, I got that 51% good shit, I’m alright”. If we can all find that 51% – you can smile, open the bottle and enjoy that special cigar with every breath.

I am not going to be another site putting out the ‘best cigars of 2012′ list or talking about predictions for next years smokes or hell, even giving you a ‘heads up’ on what to expect next year. I have a better idea, tell me what you would like to see going on at The Cigar Nut in 2013 and I will try my best to make it happen ( within reason ).
