I’m endlessly fascinated by the variety of people that I meet in the cigar industry. From B&Ms to chatting on the forums to random smokers I meet on the street, cigar smokers are some of the most interesting people in the world.
This blog series, Eye on You, will profile CheapHumidors.com customers from around the world every Friday.
This week’s BOTL (Brother Of The Leaf) is Dr. Michael Evans, DDS, MS. Dr Evans is a Periodontist living in Sarasota, FL, just south of CheapHumidors.com’s main office.
Dr. Michael P. Evans graduated from Texas A&M University in 1973 with a bachelor’s degree in Zoology. He served in the United States Air Force for 8 years as an aircraft maintenance officer, and honorably discharged in 1983. During his tenure, he earned his master’s degree in Guidance and Counseling at Central Michigan University.
Dr. Evans earned his Dental Degree in 1987 from Baylor College of Dentistry, and went on to earn his Periodontal certificate, and Master’s of Science degree at the the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center from 1987-1990. Dr. Evans started practicing Periodontics in Sarasota, Florida, in 1990 and continues today, as a Board Certified Diplomate of the American Association of Periodontology. He has been married to his wife, Lisa, since 1984.
Dr. Evans like’s a nice variety of cigars. Notably, the Cusano 18 seems to be the go-to cigar of his choice. Medium bodied cigars with lesser degrees of pepper and spice are his favorites. Another of his favorite cigars is the Alec Bradley Select Cabinet Reserve (which we have on sale by the individual stick when you click here!)
Dr. Evans started smoking cigars in the 1990s out of curiosity, and picked them up in the new millennium more frequently because of the great social aspect of cigars.
I asked Dr. Evans if he ever gets flack in the medical community for being a cigar smoker. “Not at all!” Dr. Evans replied. “You’d be surprised how many doctors and dentists smoke cigars. If you smoke cigarettes they’ll look down on you, but smoking cigars just brings you in to that classy culture of elegance that doctors love.”
