The maduro wrapper is what grabs your attention first. You hold it in your fingers and feel it. Then you smell it. For some reason, it reminds you of cold winter nights by the fireplace. You smell it again. You know it’s going to be a fine cigar.
They pour you a glass of red wine, a full-bodied red wine that smells like memories aged in an oak barrel. You take a sip and detect a subtle taste that is not only wine. No. It’s as bitter as nostalgia and as sweet as hope. It’s something more than wine. Out of this world.
You close your eyes and breathe in the sunny day, the smell of the Beqaa Valley and the nearby winery.
Somewhere in the background your wife laughs and that makes you smile.
You can be happy. Yes. It’s possible, still possible.
You light the cigar and say to yourself, “Glad I’m here. Glad I’m alive today.”
