How A Lady Chooses Her Stick’s
Now that it’s Women in Cigars Week, we thought we’d take some time out to explain to the menfolk how ladies go about choosing their favorite stick. There are a lot of considerations that go into the process, and some of the key factors may surprise you!
Let’s start first with the elephant’s trunk in the room: length. Every guy thinks that he needs a presidente in order to really put a smile on a lady’s face during a smoking session, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, some ladies find presidentes to be overwhelming and unenjoyable. In many cases, a panatela is more than enough, and even a well-shaped robusto can be exactly what a lady is looking for.
Even if the length and ring gauge of a cigar aren’t a lady’s favorite, there are many other areas that can make up for it. The flavor or “personality” of a cigar is often relevant to enjoyment, and an exciting cigar can lead to a surprisingly satisfying smoke, regardless of size. In addition, a handsome wrapper is often appreciated.
It also helps to ask whether your smoking partner prefers a long, slow burn or is eager to get a lot of smoking done quickly. Remember, however, that smoking too fast can leave you dizzy and disoriented!
The current consensus is that the best sticks come from Latin America and the Caribbean islands. Yet many women all around the world seem to generally prefer homegrown products. And while some women are known to smoke a cigar just as they find it, most also prefer the end to be cut (although this is subject to intense debate).
We suppose it boils down to this: to each her own.
We are curious, though, to find out whether certain myths are actually true. For example, is it true that, “Once you go maduro, you never go back?”
