A wonderful, elegant, and monumental experience, this cigar: CAO Flathead “Steel Horse”, 6½ inches long, 66 ring gauge. Most cigars are less than 56 ring gauge. It’s the biggest cigar I have smoked since three years ago when I started to sing and edit for the Antiochian Orthodox Church. Bruckner would have loved it, and would have thanked me endlessly for giving him one. Bought at Habana, North Greenbush, New York where they have a premium selection. For the best experience, the punch must be directly in the middle of the flat end and must penetrate only the wrapper. In my experience, big cigars and big music (the score is my edition of the early Bruckner Second) go together. What do you think? Tell me in the comments below.
