OK, time for some physics for cigar smokers 101!
Roughly, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle implies a limit to precision in regards to quantum mechanics. We can’t possibly pin down every aspect with precision and the more precisely one is determined has the inverse affect on other aspects.
You won’t always know everything, but the only way to move forward, in life and quantum mechanics, is to not just face, but EMBRACE UNCERTAINTY!
It’s an interesting and bold move for a cigar company, but one that has had excellent results.
One last bit of quantum mechanics:
Shcrödingers cat: (don’t try this at home, PETA might get angry and throw cabbage at you)
Take a random cat, throw it in a box. Inside the box you have a mild radioactive source, a vial of poison/toxin and a radiation triggered mechanism to shatter the vial. At some point the cat is going to die, but you don’t know when this has occurred unless you open the box. If you open the box, you add another variable to a somewhat randomized outcome with the change in pressure, temperature, humidity, etc.
This analogy is basically one nerd calling another nerd stupid as Schrödinger used it to illustrate a fundamental flaw in the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. Roughly, the Copenhagen interpretation says that the cat’s not dead until you open the box and observe that it truly is dead…….
OK, I was a geology major so this shit gets fuzzy, but that’s pretty much horseshit in my book. Either the cat is dead or it’s alive.
My Take: Combine the two and you come up with an easy statement by which to live. Open the box, try something new and immerse yourself in all that this universe has to offer. Oh yeah, don’t be afraid to kill a cat to make a point to your friends either…
Here we go, on to the cigar.
I picked up a 10 count box of these without ever having tried one, or even seen one before The Great Smoke. I figured, ‘what the hell, don’t embrace uncertainty in a half assed manner’
I opted for the intriguing Corneta size at 5.25″ x 44/48/55
It is a solid medium body smoke very light bite, and nice floral notes as well as what I must reluctantly describe as mint for lack of a more finite denomination. But that’s the point isn’t it? I know I like it for certain, but I just can’t nail down the precise taste.
Burn has been excellent on the three I’ve smoked so far and draw is very light, allowing a very enjoyable amount of smoke to permeate the air.
The Corneta size really hits its stride about a third in, this is also when the mint starts evolving.
Construction has been flawless with absolutely no blemishes on any in the box. Of note: the wrappers are all slightly different shades. It’s not a problem, but it is a curiosity.
Overall, this is another superb smoke from Quesada. It is a little lighter than I usually prefer, but beautifully developed and brilliantly marketed.
It’s an easy A grade all around. While it won’t be a daily smoke, or maybe not even weekly, I do anticipate reordering to keep these in stock in my humidor.
Holy Crap! The Copenhagen interpretation was right! My cigar is both untouched and completely smoked at the same time!
Oh wait, I’m just a jackass taking pictures of two cigars at once in different states.
Speaking of which, the following shows the differences in wrapper shades
So, go ahead, embrace uncertainty, order a box……or even just a 5 pack. As always, Abe and his merry crew at Smoke Inn have great pricing, speedy shipping and the best customer service I’ve found for online ordering.
