    Cigar from the day my wife was born

    when my wife and I got married a little over 5 years ago, my father in law handed me a cigar that he bought the day she was born to give to her future husband (he bought a second so we could smoke one together). well, he's not a cigar guy and the cigars just sat in his desk for 27 years, so we decided not to smoke it, but i decided to hang on to mine for sentimental value. kinda forgot about it until i started getting into cigars and rediscovered it.

    decided to toss it in the humi and see if i could get it rehydrated. it's been in the humi for about 4 months; i was rummaging around in there tonight deciding on what to smoke and pulled it out to inspect... doesn't look half bad for a cigar from JUN '79! a little damage to the foot and cap, but in theory, it would be smokable. i'll probably save it to pass along to the next generation (when they come...).

    anyway, just thought i'd share a pic with y'all of it. never heard of this brand before and wasn't able to find much info on it, but that doesn't matter.

    Buy a box of twenty! Smoke one on every birthday and,, when the kid turns 18 you will have two cigars for an intro smoke to this hobby.

    I wish I was into cigars when my kids were born 24 - 18 - 16 - 12 years ago. Would make for some wild smokes right about now, since I am so deeply rooted in this hobby... Just another one of those I should haves that life is full of.

    To my noob eyes, it looked like a Padron label for a second there.

    Good Job to the the both of you preserving the cigar and the special heritage they have. That's what it's all about, man.

    I did this with my box of handout cigars (Arturo Fuente Brevas Royales) when my daughter was born. I have like 12 left? Or something like that.

    I did a review from the one I smoked on her first birthday, and plan to continue to do reviews as they age (though no idea how/if they will improve or change).

    I have 3 sealed in airtight PET tubos in event of flood/beetles/mold. They may not age properly/well, but I know I'll have at least 3 (no matter what happens) to smoke with the man she marries, and his father.

    Edit: How could I forget to say - Congrats to the OP! That is an awesome little bit of family history

    It's a shame it was just put in a desk drawer. That is really cool.

    Do what David said, also prepare a mega sampler for if they like it on their 18th. If not, you've got a well aged mega sampler.
