“Smoking Cigars is like falling in love. First, you are attracted by its shape; you stay for its flavor, and you must always remember never, never to let the flame go out!” Winston Churchill

This site was created from my love for cigars. What started out as a time to time hobby has become a full blown passion and way of life. My name is Scott Hawkes and I started doing reviews in 2016 on my Facebook page and people seemed to like them and encouraged me to start a blog. I did that for awhile and the response from that has been incredible and unbelievably positive so this was the next logical step. I am branching out into interviews, press releases, news, and more. I am truly humbled that people enjoy and appreciate the reviews that I do. I try to be as honest, unbiased and fair as possible.

My goal has always been to provide a platform for smaller, boutique companies to be featured and give them the opportunity to use my website to reach more people. There are too many great cigars on the market that just don’t get the exposure they deserve because they simply don’t have a advertising budget. These companies are pouring every dollar into making world class, premium cigars and they deserve for people to know about them. I hope to provide that platform if only in a small way.

I invite any small business that wants to be featured to reach out to me and set something up. There is never a charge and I only ask that you share my site with your followers/customers.

I am looking to do more interviews and get on more mailing list for cigar news and press release info.

Please check back often for updates and new content.

I started smoking premium cigars a few years back and what started as an occasional things here and there has turned into a passion and a lifestyle.

I am fascinated by the art, people and culture of the cigar community. I have met some of the nicest people in the world and have made some lifelong connections. I am working on learning as much as possible, trying as many new cigars as I can, and sharing my experiences with all of you. I hope you enjoy the content here. Long ashes and full glasses friends.
