Women Smoking Big Cigars

Online: Yesterday


These the ladies, as well as gentlemen, are very fond of smoking. I was intrigued by the sight. One of them offered me a cigar, but in a very teasing way, never expecting me to accept. Having grown up with five brothers, Edmark knew a dare when she saw one. I have to say I didn't enjoy the taste right away, but I immediately understood the pleasure in the ritual--cutting it, holding it, gesturing with it.

Jerica Lowder and Samantha Rees tried their first cigars after a couple of Coronas — and some prodding from their husbands, who were smoking Cuban stogies at a party.

Now, the two women from Cumberland, a small town east of Indianapolis, smoke two or three cigars a month from their husbands' stashes. But Lowder and Rees are stay-at-home moms, petite women who work out and actually consider themselves "health nuts. They're among a small, but growing percentage of women who are savoring the ritual of a cigar.

Manufacturers are marketing flavors such as honey and mocha, and cigar bars and shops are deing experiences with women in mind. About 2 percent of U. In the s, Cigar Aficionado reported, market research showed that women comprised only one-tenth of one percent of the total U. Compare that to the percentage of men who smoke cigars - 9 percent - and women aren't really that far behind.

There are, of course, all levels of cigar-smoking women, from the ones who light up on special occasions to the routine puffers. The latter would be Barbara Munchel, who calls herself "a dedicated cigar smoker and cigar snob. That's not cigar smoking. I drink my coffee black and I want my cigars to be authentic. Munchel is the owner of Cigar Haven in Fishers, a shop with more than varieties.

Blend Cigar Bar, which opened in September on 82nd Street, was deed by a woman to appeal to a female clientele.

In the elegant lounge, women can order, for example, a chocolate martini paired with a chocolate truffle cigar. She isn't a dedicated cigar smoker, but her husband is. Maybe if other women see that there is a female club member, Blend owner Corey Johnston surmises, they won't see it as taboo.

Nobody has to tell Nick Blum that. The owner of BlumLuxa luxury jewelry boutique in Broad Ripple, boasts personalized service that comes with a complimentary cocktail and, if the client wants, a cigar.

Proof came recently, when the boutique had its open house. Women, such as Kristina Skeens and Jenifer Snider, lit right up.

They hung out with their male cigar-smoking counterparts and looked just as natural puffing away. The trend doesn't come without potential dangers. Cigar smokers are at higher risk of facing the same medical issues that plague cigarette smokers - such as lung, mouth and throat cancer, strokes and heart problems. The CDC points out that the cigars targeted at women may be even more threatening, because the flavors are a powerful mask.

Daniel McQuiston, a marketing professor at Butler University, is not surprised that cigar manufacturers are courting female customers. Avantia premier cigar manufacturer based in Pennyslvania, is selling its new cafe mocha Estilo cigar in three-pack pouches which "women like to slip into a purse or pocket," said spokeswoman Elaine Ferri.

Avanti is also launching a new line of decorative tips for their cigars in February, as well as other accessories and new flavors. And for those women who flinch at the still-overwhelming masculinity of the cigar-smoking culture?

Unpacking the longstanding trope of ladies who love cigars

There just is. Verify the quality of the cigar by squeezing it slightly to make sure there are no lumps. Also, the tobacco at the end of it should not be discolored. Choose your cigar based on its length and diameter, which are related to the intensity of the cigar.

Novice cigar smokers might want a longer, thinner cigar with cooler smoke rather than a short, stubby one.

Remove the band while smoking the cigar - but not until it's lit, so as not to tear the tobacco. Wait about 12 puffs or so.

Don't light your cigar with a match, a cigarette lighter, a candle — or worse, someone else's cigar. Use a cigar lighter.
