Cigar Lifestyle

The best advertising for new cigars

Then came the catalogs with even more cigars to choose from. It was like letting the proverbial kid loose in the candy store. As with most hobbies, new cigar smokers’ enthusiasm grows along with their curiosity, and in the search for their ideal smoke, they are willing to try just about anything that strikes their fancy.

Even better is, they tell their friends. In this instance, not only did the friends begin purchasing cigars from the same online cigar store, but two of them even accompanied him to the ProCigar Festival. As I spoke to them during the opening night party, they spewed off lists of cigars that they’ve discovered over the last year. As our conversation continued, they were anxious to learn everything; from my opinion on certain cigars to tips on properly conditioning their humidors.

Whether it’s taking up a sport like golf, collecting baseball cards, guitars (as is the case with some of my fellow musician friends), acquiring an appreciation for wine, etc. Whatever it may be, there’s nothing like someone who jumps into a new hobby with both feet.

So here’s to you “new cigar-smoking guy,” cutter and lighter at the ready, and willing to go the distance.
