Out of the Humidor
From the Print Edition:
cigar case, Summer 93
(continued from page 16)
Purchasing the premier issue of CIGAR AFICIONADO brought a smile to my face for it brings back fond memories of when I was a child growing up back in the old country (Portugal) and my father, after a long day's work fishing, used to come home and pour himself a healthy-sized cup of Port and then light up one of his strong-smelling cigars. I could see that this made him happy and I always wanted to join him in smoking, but I was only nine years old at the time, obviously too young to smoke. But my father was a very generous man and allowed me to take sips of the Port wine. When doing so, I remember he used to pat me on the shoulder, making me feel as much as man as he was.
It almost brings tears to my eyes writing this down and remembering those good old days of youth.
Thank you for bringing that special moment back into my life.

Ever since I purchased your fine publication and placed it on my college dormitory coffee table, I've been the toast of the building. Friends wander into the room and eagerly peruse the pages of this beautiful quarterly. The pleasure of gaining insight from fellow cigar aficionados falls just short of indulging oneself in an evening of fine cigar smoking.
On many a weekend night, fine cigars have broken through the stuffy academic atmosphere and brought friends closer together here in rural Minnesota. Thank you for your commitment to promoting this noble pastime.
