Some people smokes because it is what's IN. For some, smoking a cigar is like a status quo. It is indeed classy to see people smoke cigar than seeing people smokes cigarette. I guess because cigars are expensive so they always associate it with your financial status.
Speaking of cigar, have you tried la flor dominicana cigars? A couple of my friends told me that this is a really good brand. I don't have any idea of what is good and what is not when it comes to cigar because I don't smoke.
