After the week from hell I needed to unwind a little so I spent most of the evening sitting in my back yard drinking a well deserved Glenmorangie Port Wood Finish scotch. A couple friends of mine turned me on to this at a biker gathering a couple years ago. It’s a lot smoother than the Laphroaig that I usually drink, but the port wood finish really makes this a smooth drinker. The flavors were an excellent match for the medium sized El Credito Apprentice cigar that I picked out of the humidor. It’s a little smaller than my preferred size, but the draw was smooth, the smoke was thick, and it burned evenly and smoothly. I picked up a few different flavors, including leather and earth.
All in all, a good way to get over a rough week.
