Which are the children of an idle brain,
Begot of nothing but vain fantasy.
Take a deep inhale from a Romeo y Julieta Cuban cigar box in saint-seducing gold.
The smell is pure old-world romance. Even “cigar-box” as a note in fine Cabernet Sauvignon; I absolutely adore it.
And the names of Cuban cigars are romantic. Romeo y Julieta, Montecristo…
Where did the names come from? A clue is the lector (reader) stood on the factory floor and read from a novel to the the torcedores (cigar rollers) in the factory.
Apparently the names of the cigars are named after the torcedores’ favourite stories. I believe it, but then I believe in romance to lift us from the humdrum everyday.
