Tip: Sixteen Things Every Cigar Smoker Should Do In Their Lifetime

1 Nov 2017

Cigar smokers can live a long time. Just ask Richard Overton, the oldest living WWII veteran who, at 111, still smokes a dozen cigars a day. That gives you plenty of time to do lots of amazing things.

To help out, we brainstormed a list of sixteen cigar-related activities every cigar smoker should accomplish in their lifetime:

1. Smoke a cigar in a rental car. (There may be a cleaning fee involved.)

2. Make your own cigar blend, then smoke it. (Be prepared for it not to be very good, but that isn’t the point.)

3. Smoke a pre-embargo Cuban. (No, cigars made with a portion of pre-embargo Cuban tobacco don’t count.)

4. Visit a cigar factory abroad. (And a tobacco field while you are there.)

5. Smoke two cigars at once. (It’s actually a good way to develop your palate.)

6. Visit Cuba. (It’s easier than you think.)

7. Give someone their first cigar. (Maybe on their 18th birthday?)

8. Enjoy a cigar and drink at Casa Fuente in Las Vegas. (Try the Don Carlos Caipirinha.)

9. Buy the cigar you’ve always wanted to smoke, no matter the price. (Spend $30, $50, $100, or more.)

10. Light up a cigar someplace you shouldn’t. (Act shocked when you are told you can’t enjoy your cigar there.)

11. Pair Pappy Van Winkle bourbon with your favorite cigar. (Bourbon that costs $100 an ounce must be amazing, right?)

12. Buy a friend “It’s a boy/girl” cigars to celebrate a birth. (Remind the new dad, he should give them out, not smoke them all.)

13. Visit Calle Ocho in Little Havana. (It’s kinda like Cuba, but still in America.)

14. Wake up early to read the newspaper with a cigar and coffee. (Your local paper, the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, National Enquirer… it doesn’t matter.)

15. Smoke cigars with friends around a bonfire you made. (Bonus points if you chopped the wood for the bonfire yourself.)

16. Light up a celebratory cigar when your favorite team wins the championship. (Hopefully you aren’t a Browns fan.)

    You forgot “smoke a cigar with your brothers and sisters while deployed to a foreign country fighting for freedom!” and “smoke a freedom cigar when you return home from said deployment!”
    That is all.
