My cigar journey began slightly before it was legal when my father grew tired of me asking for a cigar and handed me a Punch hoping for it to make him sick and go away. Well, 18yrs later I enjoy cigars daily. These days I am smoking mostly boutiques and new releases. Some of my go to cigars are anything Fuente, RoMaCraft, or Tatuaje.Myfavorite vitolas are lancero, corona, and figurados. I currently live in Texas with my wife and son. I am a dedicated public servant that followed my father's footsteps career wise as well, as second generation firefighter. I still enjoy smoking with my father and occasionally my wife, I am also teaching my mini me the ways of cigars but plan on sharing our first one on my son's 18th birthday.
