Are there any good “chewing” cigars?
Q. My father,who has been a long time cigar smoker recently had a pacemaker placed in his heart. The doctors advised him not to smoke anymore. He likes to chew on a cigar but has complained that most of the premium cigars he use to smoke don’t have a pleasant taste. Any suggestions on cigars that are more flavorable when chewed on?

A. Funny you should mention it because I once brought an Olor Fuerte Robusto to a poker game only to find out there no smoking was allowed. So, I decided to chew on it, and to my surprise, it was pretty darn good.
Here are a couple of others that might do the trick. Both have a sweetened cap, one has mocha-java flavors if you think those attributes would appeal to him.
Flor de Oliva (in the “natrual” Sumatra wrapper) – Sweetened cap, well-packed, rich Nicargauan tobacco flavor.
Solo Cafe – Sweetend cap, prime tobaccos, coffee and mocha essences.
All three are high in quality and great buys.
