Kinky Friedman’s ‘Willie Nelson’ cigars

You rarely see a shaggy foot on a cigar, and The Willie is nothing if not unusual. The uncut end makes for an easy light, and the first few puffs explode with smoke, awakening the palate before mellowing into ultra-creamy coffee with vanilla and a hint of spice, and then later, chocolate flavors.

The Willie is hand-rolled to 6 x 48, with a beautiful Honduran wrapper draped over choice Costa Rican binder and fine long-leaf Honduran and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos.

The cigar is finished with a pigtail; the end of the wrapper is expertly rolled into a tight scroll and then tied in a knot at the head. Pigtails don’t have a cap and can easily be bitten off instead of cut (we’re pretty sure that’s what Willie would want).Billy Joe Shaver may be Kinky’s Spiritual Advisor, but Kinky’s long-time friend and would-be Energy Czar, Willie Nelson, has also been known to wax philosophical. Here are some of our favorite words of wisdom from Willie:

Let the jerks of the world serve as the perfect example of what you don’t want to be.
Don’t let your thoughts think you.
If everyone just takes care of their own area then we won’t have any problems.
Be here. Be present. Wherever you are, be there.
The wisdom is in the moments when the madness slips away and we remember the basics.
Cruelty is all out of ignorance.
Smoke a Kinky Friedman Cigars cigar every day (OK, maybe he didn’t exactly say this one – we still think it’s good advice)!
