Art of the Cigar Lifestyle
It is impossible to encapsulate the cigar lifestyle in a simple word. The various ways by which cigar enthusiasts partake is just as complex as the symbol for which this lifestyle centers around. For some, smoking a premium cigar can be as casual as sitting on the deck or patio in self reflection, or as formal as a tasting event , show or “herf” embracing the camaraderie displayed by volumes of BOTLs and SOTLs (that’s brothers of the leaf and sisters of the leaf). One of the most interesting aspects about this lifestyle which has eluded many a gathering is that the shared love of premium cigars trumps social, political, racial and gender gaps. When you walk into that collective, you are a premium cigar smoker above all else. So how do you become a member of this club?
