Cigars Pair Great With Conspiracy Theories (Part 2)
The Cigar Guys have returned to continue their discussion. Musa starts off by claiming we are in an advanced video game that a four year old kid is playing them, but he is quickly cut off and the guys move on to the main topic.
Mark shares his thoughts on a particular brand of scotch, King George V, and notes that he would not recommend it to anyone who is spending $600 on it. He explains that it is a blended whiskey, not a single malt or single barrel, and as such it is not worth the price. He goes on to say that he doesn’t typically enjoy blended whiskeys, although there are some that he likes such as Monkey Shoulder.
Roberto chimes in, saying that Monkey Shoulder is always his backup if they don’t have Balvenie 14, which he prefers. Mark agrees, saying that he loves trying new scotches and whiskeys, even brands that he doesn’t particularly like. He notes that expensive bottles can be a good choice to try because they may not focus on the same things that bars do.
The group goes on to discuss different brands of Johnny Walker, with Alex noting that it is not a brand he particularly likes. He recommends avoiding the red label altogether, saying that it is terrible. Black is the most basic and cheap Scotch that you can buy, while gold is a good value blended scotch for your money.
The conversation then turns to cigars, with Jared noting that he thinks cigars pair well with conspiracy theories. He explains that smoking a cigar can make you feel like you’re part of a secret club or a group of people who know something that others don’t. The others agree, noting that smoking a cigar can be a way to relax and unwind, as well as a way to connect with other people.
Mark stated that he started smoking cigars and found that he enjoyed the taste and overall experience. He notes that cigars have a variety of flavors and tastes, and that they can be paired with different types of whiskey to create unique flavor combinations.
When you light up a cigar, you’re making a conscious decision to slow down and savor the experience. You take the time to appreciate the flavor and aroma, and you allow yourself to relax and unwind. Similarly, when discussing conspiracy theories, you’re taking the time to explore alternative viewpoints and ideas. It’s about having an open mind and being willing to consider possibilities beyond what we’re presented with.
There are many conspiracy theories out there, ranging from the mundane to the outlandish. Some of the theories we discussed included the possibility of extraterrestrial life, the assassination of JFK, and the idea that the moon landing was faked. While we may not agree on all of these theories, we enjoy exploring them and hearing each other’s perspectives.
The conversation then turns to different types of cigars, with Musa noting that he likes Maduro cigars because they have a lot of flavor. Mark agrees, saying that he likes the flavor of Maduro cigars as well. He notes that he likes to pair his cigars with different types of whiskey, depending on the flavor of the cigar.
The group goes on to discuss the importance of proper storage for cigars, with Alex noting that he keeps his cigars in a humidor to keep them fresh. Jared agrees, saying that he keeps his cigars in a humidor as well, and that he likes to rotate them to make sure that they all get equal exposure to the humidity.
Overall, the conversation is lively and engaging, with the Cigar Guys sharing their thoughts and opinions on whiskey and cigars. They discuss different brands and types of whiskey, as well as the benefits of smoking cigars. Whether you’re a seasoned cigar smoker or a novice, this conversation is sure to be informative and entertaining. So light up a cigar, pour yourself a glass of whiskey, and join the Cigar Guys for their latest discussion.
