May 16th 2012 - Intemperance BA XXI
Today brings us the Intemperance BA XXI Avarice in a 4.5x52 Short Robusto vitola. Intemperance is brought to us by RoMa Craft Tobac. The BA XXI has a Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper and comes to us from their factory, Fabrica de Tobacco NicaSueno in Esteli, Nicaragua. You'll get a woody and nutty core that has flavors of coffe, earth, chocolate and pepper to compliment it's core flavors. I chose this to be today's cigar to pay my respects to Spc. Leslie H. Sabo, Jr whose widow is being presented with his Medal of Honor from his actions in Vietnam. While on patrol Spc. Sabo and his fellow soldiers were ambushed he charged the enemy position and killed multiple enemy soldiers. He then protected another soldier's life by throwing a grenade that landed near them and shielding the other soldier with his own body causing injuries to himself. Then after being shot multiple times he crawled to the enemy bunker and tossed in a grenade that killed the remaining enemy fighters and it took his life as well. A true American hero was finally given the award he so courageously earned over 40 years ago.
