Do You Have A Cigar Icon

This LIFE picture is one of my JFK favorites. All of us know he was a fan of Habanos. But what you may not know and what was revealed by one of his staff in a 2000 interview is that Jack Kennedy wanted to exempt cigars from the Cuban embargo, JFK told Richard Goodwin, "We tried to exempt cigars, but the cigar manufacturers in Tampa objected. I guess we’re out of luck.” Would love to see pix of your favorite cigar smokers. It can be a family member with a story too. You may recognize the attached from my profile. :-)

I like Michael Jordan. He said he smoked Hoyo Double Coronas in his car on the way to the stadium for home games. That's pretty cool.

Dale Scott wrote the book how to select and enjoy premium cigars and save money. I think he's the one...great dude, modest and sincere about great cigars and not paying too much.

For some reason, maybe im just tired, i thought this post read "do you have a cigar IRON?" Made a pretty hilarious image in my head of someone making Box Pressed cigars with a clothing iron. In the way of Icons tho, Pierce Brosnan playing as James Bond.
