On the ancillary issue of how many cigars one smokes a day, I guess it's all in what you're used to. I have no problem smoking 4 or 5 cigars in a day and enjoying every dang one of them. Sometimes I'll even smoke two or three back-to-back with no noticeable ill effect. Maybe it's simply being used to smoking more, or maybe I'm just not that concerned about tasting every nuance. Doesn't matter. I can still tell whether a cigar is good or not... right down to the last nightcap of the evening.
I smoke in moderation. Only one cigar at a time. - Mark Twain
