Choosing cigars

In recent months, I have come to acknowledge that I love new experiences and learning about the things that others can be addicted to (even if I am not). Today, I went to Grant's Tobacconists in SF. I've never been one to like cigars, but I was picking up some Christmas presents. It was such an interesting experience, full of old terms (body, finish, spiciness, etc.) used in new contexts. It was very similar to choosing wine actually. What also impressed me is that this store has been there since 1849 and the owner was very knowledgeable. It left me yearning to learn more about the fragrance that filled the large walk-in humidor....
