I believe, without a doubt, that situational context affects any smoking experience. So to begin this review I am going to relay a short holiday story regarding this cigar. If this is something you wish to bypass, by all means do and just skip to the second paragraph. I will think no less of you and neither will the cigar. Having spent slightly more than the past year of my life married to my wonderful wife, I find, like many of you, that sometimes it requires a little bit of circus talent to juggle everything going on. As my wife and my families live about 2.5 hours apart, we both agreed that trying to make it to both Christmases every year would end up causing more stress than needed. To compromise, we alternate visiting one side of the family for Christmas and the other on Thanksgiving and New Years. This year was the first Christmas that we spent with her family. Everyone had a great time and I felt extremely welcome, as always, but certain holiday traditions and feelings associated with your own family on Christmas are almost impossible to recreate elsewhere. Fast forward to our arrival at my parents’ house for our pseudo Christmas celebration on New Years. It was joyous and you could tell that the family was happy to be together after being apart. After a hearty meal, with my wife and mother both asleep on the couches, my father and I decided to have a smoke. I brought him a Tatuaje J21, which he greatly enjoyed; although probably not as much as the one from my prior review. For myself I decided to try out the Carlos Torano Exodus 1959 50 Year Anniversary Short Churchill.
