So, today I'm officially old enough to do all the things I could do yesterday; but the wife still goes out of her way to make me indulge (even more than usual) and enjoy myself. As I blew the dust off the last bit of my STONEHAVEN, Juli Ann surprised me with another tin! Say what you will, but my gal definately pays attention.
After my morning pipe, my better half is encouraging another. I don't have the heart to open the new tin yet, so I have to find an acceptable substitution.
So, we're sitting down about to watch Blood Simple. I have my glass of cold brew ready, and some Balvenie 15 year-old on standby (for after dinner)... I need a suggestion on a tobacco to celebrate another year closer to the grave. I assume that with several suggestions, I must have something sitting in my cellar that matches.
Thanks!

Treat yourself to a nice cigar Jeffrey, it's your birthday! I usually try for a partagas or a Romeo y julieta on mine, or Christmas or when I can afford one, any excuse really to have one.

Many happy returns of the day to you anyway.

Thank you, SimonG! I do have some of those sittin' in my humidor, along with a couple of Cohibas... maybe today is the day! Or, at least, a lil' later in the week when the kiddos are back in school.

Put the kids to bed early & light your cigar Jeffrey! Balvennie on the side, lovely stuff. It's your birthday after all mate!

Well, I'm currently head over heals for McConnell's Latakia Flake so that's what I suggest. It's a damn good smoke, I only wish they would have named it something more appropriate.

If Mrs. Deal is as supportive of your cigar smoking as she is of your pipe hobby, I have to go with the other gentleman here. Cigar!
Then have bowl of the B-Day present. :mrgreen:

Thank you, good sirs! The stogie won out (Cohiba Black)! ... followed by a bowl of my present (again). Between the coffee and tobacco, I was up until the wee hours of the morning (researching Castello history).
Thank you to everyone; I hope the rest of your year(s) are as satisfying as my day was!

I think the cigar, and then after a respectful pause to clear the palate, maybe a bowl of your favorite leaf, whatever you have open, or would like to open, for the occasion. Think of it as happiness that will extend your life, and put off your peaceful rest.

It's your birthday, so celebrate. Have a bowl of some of your oldest Christmas Cheer with your Scotch. Then have that cigar. If it were me, I'd go for a Fuente Hemingway Signature. I think good red va pipe tobacco and Cameroon wrapped cigars are in the same wheelhouse: rich and flavorful without being overbearing. Or whatever varieties float your boat, but definitely both

Imo, whatever it takes to put your wife into an amorous mode. If that's molto dolce, take one for the team.

She's the kinda gal that loves the smell of Hearth & Home's Cerberus. Tonight she insisted on the house smelling like Haunted Bookshop, before the weekend was over.
I need to loan her out to other pipe smokers.
