The folks at Illusione call this one, "A connoisseurs cigar." We're a little bit in love with our new "morning smoke," which maybe means we could be connoisseurs? Stop laughing.

On a side note, if I don';t stop smoking these things, we'll have none to sell. If we're ever out of stock, it's totally my fault.

From the "Because we found it on the mighty, mighty internets, it must be true files: "Épernay is best known as the principal entrepot for champagne wines, which are bottled and kept in large cellars built into the chalk rock on which the town is built."*

*a port, city, or trading post where merchandise may be imported, stored or traded, usually to be exported again.
