Another night of drinking, another night of smoking cigars.
Reading Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises this week also made me want to drink and smoke a little more, even though I had promised myself to cut down on drinking.
The news is that I smoked my first Oliva Serie V cigar just this Thursday.
The Oliva Serie V Double Toro is an amazing cigar with notes of medium roast coffee, chocolate, oak, and black pepper. I smoked it leisurely at Spine Beirut, which is one of the trendy rooftop clubs this summer. Of course, it was my wife who chose the place. She’s the one who’s always up to date with the latest trends in town. So, we booked a table, invited some friends, and made it happen.
I paired my cigar with gin and tonic and watched people dance like Lebanon isn’t going to hell. The cigar kept me company for about two hours. When I was finally done with it, it was already time to pay the bill.
I will have to get some more Oliva Serie V cigars. I liked them very much, and I have some extra space in my humidor.
One thing’s for sure: I’ll pair the next one with coffee.
