Not sure about where you live, but the summer here was unbearably hot. Today I’m thankful for September, which has ushered in more reasonable temps and far less humidity. I was pondering Pennsylvania’s seasonality when, naturally, I got to thinking about beer and cigars.
Some of my favorite craft brews are seasonal, so when nightfall comes earlier and the air begins to smell sweet, I know it’s time to stock up on Porter, Stout, Märzen-stye Fest, Doppelbock, Amber, etc.
More often than not, the beer I’m drinking dictates what I smoke, making my cigar choice also seasonal. This means it’s time for fuller-bodied Maduro- and Corojo-wrapped cigars, and especially fuller-bodied Nicaraguans. Toros, Fancy figurados and Presidentes give way to Corona Gordas, Robustos, Rothschilds and Belicosos.
I’m curious to hear your thoughts: Do you smoke/buy certain cigars seasonally?
