t's nice that I'm not alone in thinking that the smell of cigar smoke is much nicer than from a cigarette.
Yes indeed; although some cheap cigars can be quite unpleasant in scent. That's why smoking a fine premium cigar is highly recommended (by me).
The cigar is the urban man's camp fire. A proverbial "call of the wild" (sorry Jack London).Famous cigar smokers include;
Winston Churchill, President Andrew Jackson and his wife; President John Adams, Gen. Robert E. Lee; General Ulysses S. Grant; President Bill Clinton (although he had multiple uses for his cigars); Vladimir Lenin; Al Capone: Fidel Castro; Groucho Marx; Mark Twain; H.L. Mencken, Sigmund Freud; Tom Mix; Milton Berle, Darryl Zanuck, W.C. Fields, Lorenz Hart, Count Basie, Alfred Hitchcock, Pablo Picasso, Paul Newman, to name just a few.....
As English novelist William Makepeace Thackeray noted in 1896":
"I vow and believe that the cigar has been one the greatest creature comforts of my life, a kind companion, a gentle stimulant, an amiable anodyne, a cementer of friendship. May I die if I abuse that kindly weed which has given me so much pleasure."
...and for the lady folks; George Sand in 1867 said this; "A cigar numbs and fills the solitary hours with a million gracious images."
