Smoke signals -Taste is just one small part of cigar joy
It's not just proud dads, swank bachelors and old fogies smoking stogies these days.
More women than ever have taken up the habit, says a local cigar merchant.
"They like the sophistication. While connoisseurs don't roll their own cigars like
some cigarette smokers do, they are often fascinated by the process. Before Christmas,
they hosted a demonstration for clients in the shop. "Our Nicaraguan manufacturers
will send rollers to their key customers," he says.
"A lot of people like to see how cigars are rolled. It is quite interesting to watch."
