Top Five Occasions for Smoking Cigars

Since its conception, the cigar has been a sign of celebration with the two going hand in hand. Dating back to as early as the 1500s, the ritual of smoking tobacco to celebrate was very much a part of the Native American traditions. The tribes would smoke tobacco rolled and wrapped in various natural materials, such as palm and husks of horn, at ceremonious and momentous events. This tradition, though changed over time through new technologies and innovative ideas, still holds the same triumphant value. 

It has been and will continually be used to celebrate the birth of new-borns, the engagement of young lovers, the birthdays of older generations, as well as successes at work. It seems that at every occasion there is the perfect opportunity to celebrate with a cigar.

We at EGM Cigars believe that every day is an occasion to smoke our beloved Cuban Cigars, nevertheless we’ve compiled a small list of our personal favourites just for you.
