A Cigar for Every Season
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?
