Cigars 101

Is it “normal” to smoke only one cigar brand?

A: Actually, it’s not normal. I say that mainly because the great majority of cigar smokers tend to “rotate” or mix up their cigars if for nothing more than simple variety.

That said, there’s also nothing wrong with smoking the same cigars all the time. If they give you that much satisfaction, why not? However, there’s so much to choose from out there, I can’t see why anyone wouldn’t want to try new cigars as they enter the market, or smoke something else, if only for simple change of pace.

If you’ve been smoking for 15 years, you might possibly be able to make a case for saying you’ve tried ’em all and are now “married” to one brand. I’m sure that you’re exaggerating a little here, but I presume at this stage you’re of the belief that “if it ain’t broke, why fix it?” Of course, you’re probably missing out on some good cigars.

In case you ever change your mind, check out my article on good “start here” cigars.
