About David
I started The Cigar Nut back in 2009 as a way to ensure after marriage that I would have 'leverage' to keep cigars an active part of my life, it has since become so much more, thanks to our team and viewers like you. I live just under an hour west of Downtown St. Louis with my wife and daughter and soon to add a son in January. I have been smoking cigars for a little under a decade, prefer medium to full body Nicaraguan and Dominican's but have been known to enjoy a Cuban here and there.
