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.
