If your house was on fire, what would be the first item you would grab? My pets!
If you were a superhero what powers would you have? Stopping or slowing down time
If you had a warning label, what would yours say? Warning: For Outdoor Use only. I’m an active exerciser and I smoke cigars outdoors and at outdoor bars
If you could travel anywhere right now, where would you go? A remote Caribbean island
Cigar: My favorite is going to be one I worked 100+ hours constructing the exact flavor profile I wanted. You can call it a shameless plug but that just makes sense! If someone asked you your favorite cereal and you were able to mix all your favorite cereals into one and give it your name…wouldn’t that be YOUR favorite cereal? My favorite in our line is the Nadi Classic Habano in the Corona.
Cutter: I prefer straight cut cigar cutters.
Lighter: Vertigo Intimidator
Humidor: Anything HUGE that can tame my massive collection of 2000+ sticks, and I prefer a cherry wood finish.
Her enjoyment of cigar smoking prompted her to begin a blog featuring cigar reviews. In 2011, she decided to start her own cigar brand with Jeff called Nadi Cigars. What initially started out as an online-only business quickly turned into a retail opportunity with Nadi Cigars being offered in local cigar shops. Nada, SmokingCigarGirl, has been reviewing cigars for CheapHumidors.com since 2012 and we’ve been lucky to showcase her talent on our company blog. Check out her cigar reviews here.
When she’s not reviewing cigars, working for her business, or attending local cigar events, she’s spending time with her husband and their doggie named “Liga.” Is it a coincidence that name comes from the legendary cigar brand Liga Privada? I think not! Nada enjoys going out to local wine bars and breweries and experimenting with cigar pairings. She also travels to Florida destinations like Key West.
