Survey of Women Cigar Smokers

Heather from Fumee World sent me a press-release about a survey conducted to gain a better understanding of female cigar consumers. It was created and conducted by Cigar Research and The Association for Women Cigar Smokers. There are some interesting facts, such as:

  • Average female smoker smokes roughly one cigar per week
  • Women are indifferent to box, band or label design and prefer purchasing their cigars online
  • When smoking a cigar, women feel "powerful", "attractive", "strong", "fun" and "rebellious", whereas the vast majority of male smokers feel "peaceful"

You can download the results of the survey here.

Poll: should we cover other topics?

As there have recently been (and there's more to come) a few wine-related posts on this blog, I would like to have readers' opinion - should we write about other topics, not directly related to cigars, such as wine (this is something I am particularly interested in) and other drinks (rum, cognac, coffee)?

Please use the poll below and feel free to post your comments in the comments section. Thanks!

Stellar Stogies: Hoyo de Monterrey

Hoyo de Monterrey cigars

Premium cigar brand Hoyo de Monterrey is one of the oldest brands in the world. Of course, a cigar this old has got to have a pretty interesting history. And Hoyo de Monterrey is no exception. These cigars were born in Cuba when a 13-year-old boy came to work on his uncle’s farm. And they were reborn for the American market in Honduras in 1969, when a Cuban seed was smuggled out of post-revolutionary Cuba in a diplomatic pouch.
