The Straight Cut
Your dad doesn't want a new tie, hat, toolbox, or even a cigar. He wants to spend time with you. And maybe a cigar, actually.
As much as we love cigars, we don’t always love the stores that sell them. Inconvenient locations, horrible curb appeal, and grumpy salespeople are the norm. There are some incredible exceptions, but most of the time local cigar stores are terrible. For the aficionado, this a minor inconvenience, but for beginners and gift-givers, it’s uncomfortable, unpleasant, and confusing.
Unless you're in a cigar bar, you should make sure your billowing smoke isn’t bothering people around you. So before you light up, check in with the people within 15 feet of you if they mind. Cigars let out a lot of smoke, and the aroma travels further than you'd think.
