    Default Cigar and Cognac

    I have just passed the first of four stages in my 18 month graduate training program. After five weeks doing 65 hour weeks I have passed, so as soon as I got home tonight I pulled out a Cuban robusto and poured myself a glass of Hennessy VSOP and enjoyed my first break in almost three months.

    Shaving is my daily ritual that I use to relax, and I indulge in cigars and alcohol rarely, but it is so nice just to take an hour out to relax and indulge.

    Best way to celebrate! I have a humidor with Cubans and a small collection of single malts for those rare occasions too.

    Congrats! A nice cigar and a drink is so relaxing. I'm in Sydney too, I'll be doing this when it warms up a bit more.

    A fine drink, a nice smoke and time to relax. Sounds like Heaven to me.

    Congrats. I myself just enjoyed cigars and cognac practically every night on my honeymoon last week. I took my own PSD4s and RASSs and literally drank the resort out of Courvoisier VSOP.

    Congrats on passing.

    I really used to enjoy a very large glass of cognac with a cigar. These days it usually a short black coffee with the cigar but I do enjoy the cigar more.

    Congrats and 'way-to-go'

    I myself have Cuban Cohiba Corona Especial's (a long panetela), & Siglo III's (a long corona), in my Humidor and enjoy a 'snifter' of Hine Cognac 'on the rocks' to relax and 'degress' after a hard and tiring day at the office
