Are You A Steve Saka Type Of Smoker?

Steve Saka smokes ten cigars a day, whoa.

Do any BOTL here come close?

If yes, how do you find the time?

And how do you avoid palate burnout?

I think all those industry guys who smoke X cigars a day don't REALLY smoke "X" amount of full cigars. They probably light "X" amount of cigars and toss/leave em whenever they feel/forget. Somebody said Padron did that in person. He would light a cigar, put it down, walk into another room, and light up a new one. I mean, when you can- why not? I believe that's how you get guys "smoking" 10-20 cigars in a day. Just a thought.

I agree. We need to define smoke. If by smoke, you mean sit down or stay in one place and finish the stick, then I really doubt they smoke 10 or X > 3 and maybe 2/

You figure an average 6x50 Toro takes an hour to smoke. IF you're just concentrating on the smoke, not having conversations with multiple people about the cigar .

That's a MINIMUM of ten hours of your day to tending a cigar. Not counting eating, drinking and bodily functions.

It's doable but not likely. Since with chit chat deters you power smoking every stick.

Since a crack stick lasts me 40 minutes, there's no way in hell I could accomplish it. I've had five or six in a day. That starting at 7am tee time and getting home real late and real drunk. Plus I know a couple of those got lit and left.

Yup, I agree. To do it for enjoyment, is pretty near impossible. Sorry Steve Saka :-)

I read an article a few years back, this guy went on a buying trip for one of the etailers to Nicaragua, in the article he started that they were smoking 10-12 cigars a day. In the comments someone called him out using pretty much the same math as Dino and got the guy to admit that they were only smoking maybe a third, at best of each cigar.

Unless your smoking the same cigar/blend after 3 cigars in a day your palate is pretty much wrecked anyways imo. I think the most I smoked in a day was six and at that point it was just smoking to smoke. Couldn't taste a damn thing.

I've done shows and cigar fests where nearly all the vendors smoked constantly from morning to midnight, one cigar after another... and all the way down (unless it sucked). It's just how it's done. The more so because I'm strictly showing accessories and the cigar reps always want me to try something from each of their lines... and stand there to make sure I light it!

I'm normally a two or three or four a-day smoker. But I've certainly gone through 10 or more in a day at these events. Not sure what this "palate burnout" bit is about, though. No such thing, as far as I'm concerned. I've yet to wish I weren't smoking a cigar when I have one in my hand!

All depends on what your smoking too. When you smoke mostly full/full all the time it takes it's toll a lot quicker
