Should I smoke the egg?

My late wife bought me a Drew Estate Egg maduro a few Christmases back that I've often thought of smoking.  Its really a novelty cigar thats probably not meant to be smoked. 

Next week is her first birthday she'll not be around for and I'm thinking it may be a good occasion for it.  I've planned a little memorial party at the campgrounds where I'll be serving Cohibas and Coole Swan (her newest favorite drink).  

Anyway, should I take the opportunity to smoke the Egg or keep it in the humi  for memories sake?

    Well, I didn't end up smoking the egg this past week.  Between the rehearsal dinner, the memorial and the wedding I barely had time to smoke any cigars.  Hopefully I'll get to it soon.

    She gave it to you to enjoy, not collect. Although keeping it provides a memory, I'm sure she'd want you to actually enjoy it.   Smoke it.

    Tough call. As you said, it is a novelty cigar, so what would she have wanted you to do?
    That should answer your question.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    That's funny you say to bring it, yakster.  Brought it the last 2 summers but never smoked it.  I think I will smoke it while there, just not on cohiba day.   

    If I smoke it I'll post a few pics of it along the way.

    Thanks all.

    Sorry for your loss, it is special when your wife buys you a cigar. If you smoke it you will combine your memories and emotions with a new memory of something she shared with you. If you do or don't either way is priceless.

    Good advice above and sorry for your loss.  I bought my dad one of those baseball bat cigars off of CF a little while back.  While it is a cool novelty I told him he should smoke it and enjoy it.  I left it up to him.

    I brought it camping with me.  

    Will he or won't he?   He-he.  We'll see.   ;)
