Before You Were HerE

A pricey stogie

Smoking che La Gloria
Cobana Serie R Limitada cigar
is by no means a small under-
First, there's the price.
Listed at $34.99 - $37.05 after
tax - this is Nickel's Arcade
tobbaconist Maison Edward's
most expensive cigar. This is
not a vanilla Dotch Masters
from the local corner store.
Then there's the time com-
mitment. It takes shoot two
hours to smoke this massive
cigar, and chat's if you're puff-
ing foil speed without getting
tired at the end.
But you will get tired.
To add to a bit of the cigar's
pageantry, it comes sheathed
in cedar casing, and preparing
to smoke feels a bit like unveil-
ing Excalibur - the sword, not

cough up a lung, but you'll
definitely know you're puffing
s lot more than air.
Putting it down for "a
moment will allow you to

fully experience this cigar's
wonderful aftertaste. Lick-
ing your lips brings you to a
special world where your own
mouth tastes like the stron-
gest espresso and the darkest
chocolate you've ever had,
all with the slightest hint of
But price and quality don't
always go together.
Maison Edwards owner
Chuck Ghawi said the Serie R
isn't the shop's best cigar.
Tobacco quality does play
a part in price, but rarity and
size are also large factors,
Ghawi said.
In fact, Ghawi and Maison
Edwards employee Julian
Lizzio both said their best
cigar is actually the Fuente
Fuente Opus X cigar, which
costs $29.99.

The La Gloria Cabana Saei Limilada cigar costs 534.99
