Earthy, creamy with coffee notes, the Puro Del Oro Petit Torpedo is a decent budget cigar that you can enjoy while you read the news or a good book after a long day.

Good draw. Thick, cloudy smoke. Good burn, though a little uneven when my draws became a little sporadic. But that’s because I was drawn into the book I was reading.

The story I was reading while smoking was Nikolai Gogol’s “The Nose.” I found it to be funny and entertaining. Every now and then, however, words of wisdom suddenly surfaced. Here’s a quote from it:

But there is nothing enduring in this world, and that is why even joy is not as keen in the moment that follows the first; and a moment later it grows weaker still and finally merges imperceptibly into one’s usual state of mind, just as a ring on the water, made by the fall of a pebble, merges finally into the smooth surface.

from “The Nose” by Nikolai Gogol
