Gary Korb takes one more look at the Holidays with his list of top shelf cigars adorned with fancy white & gold bands. Whether it’s a last minute gift idea or a humidor-worthy primo to ring-in the New Year, you’ll find 12 of them all dressed-up and ready to smoke.
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.
