  1. Padron 7000 Maduro. This 6&1/4-inch x 60-ring cigar is a medium to full-bodied smoke with a rich and unique flavor. It is best described as a dominant coffee flavor with a smooth cocoa flavor for added complexity.

My suit against UNCW is going well. The university was fortunate enough to get a federal judge (to hear their motion to dismiss the case) with an astronomically high rate of dismissal. They were probably feeling pretty confident. But, unfortunately for them, confidence is sometimes misplaced. Despite the unfavorable circumstances, I won easily. The judge said that my case is “ripe for adjudication.” Previously, an angry feminist had logged on to my Amazon.com page and said my case had been dismissed. That was wishful thinking. Welcome to reality. And let the depositions begin.

Naturally, I celebrated the legal victory with a Padron 7000.

  1. Oliva “V” Double Toro. This 6-inch by 60-ring cigar is also medium to full-bodied. It has hints of spice on top of a coffee and dark chocolate flavor. I should have said full to medium bodied as it becomes a little less strong midway through the smoke. It is, however, smooth throughout.

The University of St. Thomas was deluged with phone calls and emails after I ran an article criticizing the university administration for refusing to allow Star Parker to speak amid concerns of “discomfort.” This was after a transvestite was allowed to speak at this “Catholic” institution of hire [sic?] learning. Thanks to my readers and to the heroic efforts of the Young America’s Foundation the university relented and Parker will be allowed to speak.

Naturally, I celebrated with an Oliva “V.” The “V” stands for victory.

  1. Rocky Patel Edge Battalion Maduro. This fat 6-inch by 60-ring maduro has a rich, dark wrapper. It is sweet and spicy with a dark chocolate flavor. This cigar seems a bit more tame (medium to full bodied) than the smaller torpedo version I reviewed a couple of years ago.

A guy wrote to me recently with an interesting story about how he started reading my columns. Apparently, he was offended by one of my column titles – this was back in 2004. He got angry and read the article. Then, somehow, he got hooked on the articles. One of them suggested it was cowardly to remain stuck in a mode of agnosticism. He agreed and started studying theology. Upon my recommendation, he read “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist.” Then, he converted to Christianity.
