Top 3 Cigars: I don’t really have a favorite cigar. I like to say my favorite cigar is the one I’m smoking right now. A number of factors go into my choice (mood, environment, what I’ve eaten/drank). But lately, the 3 that I tend to smoke the most are La Flor Dominicana, Alec Bradley and Arturo Fuente.
Cigar and Drink Pair: Again, this depends on my mood, time of day, etc. But nothing goes with a good cigar like fine single malt scotch. I lean towards scotch that’s old enough to buy scotch. Glenlivet 25, Macallan 21 or Johnnie Walker Blue.
Preferred smoking location: In my man cave
How long? I had my first cigar in 1996 after my son was born. I’ve been hooked ever since.
Humidors: I have 4 humidors in my house plus 4 travel humidors and more 3/4 finger cigar cases than I can remember.
Enjoyment: The most pleasurable thing about enjoying a good cigar is the camaraderie. I’ve made many friends over the years simply due to the fact that I was smoking a cigar. I’ve always said cigars are the great equalizer.
