mkz posted a topic in Friends of Habanos Photo GalleryI attended a big gala dinner a few weeks ago. Great wine, great food, great friends and off course I´ve brought some good cigars. Standing out smoking a Dip#4 later in the evening I started a conversation with an elder gentleman quickly realizing he was a true Brother of the Leaf. Tried to offer him a cigar but he regretfully told me he had quit smoking some years ago due to health issues. Then he told me that he had some boxes at home that he had tried to give away without luck. "You wouldn´t be interested to check them out some day? Maybe you find something of interest." So long story short, I took up on his offering calling him the week after. Stored in a humidor in his cellar, neglected for the last two or three years but still in a surprisingly good condition I found some Cuban orphans. He offered me to take what I was interested in, he just wanted the cigars to go to a new home. Now they are sleeping away in my humidor for some slow re-hydration.
