It is with pleasure that I introduce a new member of our editorial team, Nathaniel. I have had a chance to read a few of his reviews and they are truly top quality - we are both looking forward to sharing these reviews with you. Here is a short introduction letter from Nathaniel:
I've been an avid aficionado for the last 15 years. I truly enjoy the pleasures of a great smoke with a great drink, or meal for that matter. I find cigars to be the salve that soothes the slights of daily life, providing opportunity to reflect and enjoy a break from our otherwise hectic lives. I enjoy the camaraderie and friendships/relationships that inevitably are developed over some quality leaf.
I enjoy Nicaraguan tobaccos a great deal. I have been a fan of this cigar producing region since 1997. Year after year the quality and selection seems to get better and better.
As far as Cuban Marca's, I have a few favorites in that department as well. Montecristo, Bolivar and Partagas being at the top of the list. I find that several of the Trinidad's currently available are also worthy of mention. As are H. Upmann and Punch.
I love to Golf. I currently carry a 9 stroke handicap and always look forward to a round at my club. Cigars seem to go very well with that activity as well! I am an avid fly fisherman, with a special sub-interest in Native Regional Salmonides. Interestingly enough, a Cigar compliments that activity quite well too! I am something of a cook and a pretty fair mixologist as well. I have an appreciation for the finer things in life, not just monetarily, rather the overall quality of life and quality of any given set of experiences. Anything worth doing is worth doing right! As I am fond of saying, "Dream like you will live for ever, Live like there is no tomorrow-James Dean".
Cheers! and Salutations!
