In comparison to some of the other topics we’ve covered on this blog, the setting in which you smoke your cigar may not sound like that big of a deal. And in reality, sure, you can smoke wherever you want (within what state laws permit). If you want to smoke your Davidoff in a fluorescent lit office space with beige walls, you can do that! However, smoking cigars isn’t just the act of cutting, lighting, and puffing. Smoking is an experience. By giving yourself the proper environment, you’re setting yourself up to better enjoy your cigar. You want to be somewhere where you can relax and truly savor the tastes and smells of the cigar smoke. Not sure where that might be? Here are a few ideas to try out. Not all of them may be for you, but they can help you figure out what your personal ideal setting is to smoke your favorite stogie.
Relax at a Cigar Lounge with Fellow Aficionados
Cigar lounges are the apex of the cigar community. Whether you’re a longtime smoker or just getting started, you’ll find yourself in awe of everything a great lounge has to offer. You don’t have to worry if anyone’s going to be bothered by your smoke – it’s the reason you’re all here! Lounges offer a chance to meet new people, exchange tips, and have a setting catered to your smoking experience. Many lounges have full bars, meaning your favorite drink can be by your side whenever you like. Some even serve coffee that pairs with your cigar. They come in all varieties, whether it’s a refined English bar with lots of dark wood and fancy mood music or a Latin lounge that plays to the roots of cigars with vibrant decor and food. Bring a friend, meet some new ones, or find a corner to be by yourself. It’s your cigar smoking experience – make it what you want it to be.
The Comfort of Your Own Man Cave
If you have a man cave in your home, this might be the perfect place to smoke. You’ve already set up your room the be catered to the things you love. Why not add cigars to that? Many smokers like to keep their humidors in their man cave, that way their stogies are always within reach should the mood strike them. In your man cave, you control what happens. If you want to put on Die Hard on the big screen or listen to Miles Davis records while you smoke, you can do that! You could even do both if you wanted. Smoking can be a very personal, introspective experience. Give yourself the atmosphere that helps you best enjoy your smoke.
Sunset, A Porch, and Glass of Your Favorite Whiskey
Maybe a little fresh air will do you good. There are few things better on a warm summer night than sitting on your porch, glass of whiskey in one hand and your favorite cigar in the other. You can be alone or with friends, just whatever feels best for the moment. Cigars can be relaxing, especially after a long stressful day (or week, or month, or year). Take a load off and watch the sunset. Having peace of mind will also let you truly enjoy all the notes in your cigar. As you methodically puff the cigar and enjoy the view, you’ll slowly feel all the anxieties of the day slip away.
Like we said at the beginning, you can smoke anywhere. But the right spot just makes your whole experience better. Doesn’t matter if it’s your porch, a lounge, or your private oasis. Find what’s right for you and what makes you better enjoy your cigars. Wanna stock up on cigars that you can try in some of these places? Check out our Daily Deals today.
