Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 103

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 103

If there’s a theme for this Week In Smoke, it’s a mix of new cigars and relaxation. Heavy on the relaxation. Maybe a little procrastination too. It’s been a busy summer, and I for one am ready to welcome a less hectic season of bourbon and heavier beers. Sure, I drink both year round, but it’s nice to be able to do so on a patio without bursting into flame or ingesting lethal amounts of pollen. And shorter, cooler days …
