      false.

      indulging in pleasureful things for pleasure’s sake is incredibly /fashion/.

      not in a stupid hedonism way, but because enjoying the little things is entirely better than being a hecking gay stupid and telling people not to enjoy things because you don’t enjoy them.

      cigars? /fashion/. cigarettes? /fashion/. drugs? /fashion/.

      don’t make it your personality though because thats what gay people do

          i like cigars. if youre gonna smoke you should do it full on with actual tobacco and not that menthol shit in ‘rettes.
          but theyre also stupidly expensive, like not worth the money ever.

          depends on the cigars.
          I really enjoy factory smoke or don fernando petit cuban sandwich.
          they are very cheap cigars, appropriate for weekday smokes so you can save up for fancier cigars for the weekend.

          >Cigarettes and other forms of tobacco are addicting. Most smokers use tobacco regularly because they are addicted to nicotine.
          Not worth the risk of getting addicted.

          Cigars are not addictive unless you are freud of churchill smoking >15 a day. I’ve been smoking for >5 years, some periods I have smoked 10 cigars a week, some periods I went 3 months without touching tobacco without batting an eye.

          It takes a fairly weak minded individual to get addicted to nicotine by smoking cigars. The only thing that could be more humiliating would be avoiding doing something pleasurable to protect your fragile health standards.

          No one gets addicted to cigars. Even regular cigar enjoyers have a “regular” cigar once a month at most
          Maybe once on a weekend if you’re on the edge of a degenerate

      "/fashion/" doesn’t mean whatever chud larp thing you want it to mean in your head
      doing drugs is /fashion/, simple as. it’s not good for you but that’s not what we’re talking about
      otherwise drinking only water, sleeping really early, and driving a safe car slowly and responsibly would be "/fashion/"

    New cigar sucker here, so my opinion doesn’t mean much but so far my favorite cigars are ones I happened to buy at the hard rock Casino for $10.

    They just taste good.

    They are, but not in the cigars and scotch Mad Men larpy way, they’re /fashion/ when they look like a comedic prop like groucho marx or in a blue collar or outdoorsman way. They’re inherently excessive and ridiculous so they’re /fashion/ when this fact is embraced and not avoided. I’m speaking purely in terms of the aesthetics of cigars, as an enjoyable product to consume, smoke them however you like. I recommend Acid and Gurkha.

        Damn bro if you’d said Acid at the start I could have quit reading. The absolute beginner “flavored cigar”. Avoid the flavored section entirely and at all costs.

        And fwiw, rooftop bars took off in 2020

        At this point I’ve tried a lot of different cigars and I think Acid will always be my favorite. I know it’s not cigargay approved but I like what I like.

          Oh fair enough, that just leaves them being a bad recommendation. Yes, cigar gays prefer you smoke those away from them lol.

            they’re very different but if you’re into Kentucky fire cured try a guinea stinker. fire cured Kentucky tobacco is usually in an Italian style cigar (dry, hard, more nicotine than a Caribbean cigar). interesting for the novelty at least once but admittedly less fa if that’s your main concern

            Appreciate the recommendation, I might try that. I wouldn’t say that being fa is my first, second, or third concern with cigars.

            Acid is fine if you have to have flavored, Gurkha is terrible though. They’re wildly inconsistent and overpriced. Every now and then they’ll make something good but it’s not worth it over a better brand like Fuente, Fernandez, or Davidoff (if you like mild stuff).

            My experience with them is limited to their Gurkha Evil Coronas and another I can’t remember the name of, but they were so good that the brand stuck in my mind ever since. I would pickup more of those any day.

    i smoke cigars 2-5 times a year and don’t smoke anything else, nor take any drugs other than alcohol in social settings. i also don’t smoke the cigars alone, but usually with 2-4 friends. being addicted to cigars would probably suck and not make them /fashion/ at all, because you absolutely smell like thick cold smoke for the rest of the day. gotta wash your clothes, brush your teeth and take a shower when you get home if you want to get rid of the smell, and you still will taste it for a couple of hours and it will be in your breath. if you do this regularly, you are guaranteed to have perma-bad breath, and i don’t even want to think about the smell of your clothes and the stains on the walls. the latter must also be worse than with cigarettes, since cigars are unfiltered.
    however, to get back to the op question, with "premium" cigars it’s the same as with wine – it’s not the "premium" that matters, it’s the taste. no point in smoking a 50$ cigar that tastes like nothing or like shit. the best cigars i had so far all had a one combination in common – handrolled, from whole leaves. other than that, it’s a gamble. i had cheap cigars taste great, i had expensive cigars taste bad, i had well-stored cigars taste "dry", i had expensive cigars burn unevenly with their cover leaf splitting up, i had cheap cigars with the most satisfying draw and perfect burn. the chance for a physically bad cigar is somewhat diminished by the higher price, in terms of cigar quality, but not so much for the taste. stop focusing too much on brand and price and just try to figure out what you like by testing.

      traditionally grown in the Connecticut River Valley. there are Connecticut shade and Connecticut broadleaf varieties (they also grow h2k and other varieties there sometimes). Connecticut shade is also grown in Ecuador and and sometimes Indonesia.
      there are other varieties named for a place that are grown in that place and elsewhere like Habano and Cameroon

          The whole rich guy in a suit + cigar thing is so ridiculous. It’s literally a fabricated image made up by Edward Bernays. You’re burning a leaf and puffing on the ash. We got it from a bunch of savages we found in the Americas that used sacrifice each other. Let’s stop pretending it’s this ultra-civilized thing. Just smoke in whatever. It’s winter now. So when I smoke I’m out on my deck wearing a parka and a watch cap.

          • Anonymous says:

            It’s not about it being civilized or not, it’s just about it being expensive and thus a status symbol. Quality cigars/spirits/colognes ect are very expensive to make so they’re symbols of exclusivity.

    I typically have 1-7 per week, more around summer, holidays, and special occasions and fewer in the winter. I think people obsess over brands too much, but lately, I’m finding I enjoy most cigars from Oliva. The quality is just very consistent. I’ve also been trying stuff from Alec Bradley. They’re okay. I prefer lighter tobaccos in general.

      how can cigarettes be /fashion/? same cold smoke stink as cigars, but they also stink while smoking them, unlike cigars, which emit a rather pleasant smell. you can’t even convince anyone you’re doing it leisurely, because nobody does that anymore, it’s literally nothing but getting a quick fix for people who can’t function without. cigarettes are absolutely not /fashion/.
      smoking cigars should be done socially with others. it’s maximum /fashion/ in that case.
