2011 Big Smoke Sunday Seminars: Roll Your Own
Posted: November 3, 2011
(continued from page 2)
But after the laughter subsided, the judges began to seriously evaluate all the submitted cigars and held up a near perfect smoke rolled by John “Bones” Malone. He was presented with two La Gloria Serie R Limitada Humidors (filled with cigars) made of Ebony Macassar wood.
As Giannini handed Malone his prize boxes of cigars he asked "So how did you roll such a great cigar?” Malone answered, “Like you said, I just watched The Pope. I’m also a surgeon, so I’m good with sharp stuff.”
The audience applauded and the event was over. Some of the participants rolled cigars very competently, others, despite their noblest of efforts, just couldn’t get past the first step. Either way, they were now focused on the series of glasses passed out at every setting. In a few moments, those glasses would be full of Cognac, the subject of the final seminar—a toast, perhaps, to those who rolled a great cigar, and a salve for those who couldn’t.
