Cigar Rolling in Nicaragua: Roll Up, Roll Up!
Here’s a question … Why wouldn’t you go cigar rolling in Nicaragua? Well besides the fact that it’s just an absolutely ridiculously cool thing to do, nothing accentuates a moment like lighting up a big, authentic cigar. The world has become a strange place. We have movies based on emojis, which are nothing more than digitized doodles, [insert shocked monkey face here] but at least the image of uber-cool hasn’t changed.
So while there will always be those minions sitting in the corner, faces illuminated by a soft blue glow as they stare at a screen and let their opposable thumbs dictate their lives through smiley faces, thumbs up, or praying hands, you’ll be leaning against the wall, cool as the flick of your zippo, lighting a hand-rolled Nicaraguan cigar. Rolled by who? By you.
Just Roll With It
And if you thought you couldn’t get any cooler, just watch the esteem grow in their phone-glowed eyes, as you casually regale them with the story of how you trekked through Nicaragua and learned to roll your own cigars, mano-a-mano with a real Master Roller. Of course, it’s up to you whether you want to embellish the tale a bit and throw in the old, “Obviously, I rolled it on the inside of sigñoritas thighs.”
