Q – Tell us your first cigar experience. When and why did you start smoking cigars?
I started smoking cigar when I was 16 years old because most friends where smoking cigarettes and I wanted to try something else. I always liked the look of smoking a cigar. After smoking my first one I was a fan of it!
Q – What was your first cigar?
I’m not sure what cigar it was precisely but I started with a classic Davidoff. After that I smoked 1/2 cigars a week for the first year.
Q – Favorite moment to smoke a cigar?
I love to smoke a cigar in the morning before breakfast with some good coffee. Also after/during dinner.
Q – Favorite cigar pairing?
Coffee in the morning and rum/whisky later on in the day.
Q – A pairing you would like to try soon?
Nothing specific on my list yet. I always try to smoke and drink new things!
Q – When did you decide to share your cigar experiences and reviews on youtube?
The idea started a couple of years ago while smoking cigars with friends. We where joking about it and I had no plan at doing it at all in the beginning because I’m not a fan of being in front of the camera.

Q – Tell us a bit more about your life style. Clothing, food, free time, hobbies.
I don’t give a lot about clothing and life style. I like good stuff but I don’t really post about it on Instagram. My hobby’s are cars and good food. And I always try to combine that with cigars and friends.
Q – A cigar that you haven’t tried and you are looking forward to try
That would be something very old like a classic Cuban Davidoff. That is high on my list!
Q – What are your thoughts on the Montefortuna Cigar Shop
I really like the ideas behind it all, with the interviews and articles also it’s a easy site to shop for special cigars.
Q – Have you ever visited Cuba? Tell us your experience
Yes I did! This year I went there for 5 days invited bye Havana club. That was a very special and great experience. Not a lot of sleep but I fell in love with the country so I will be going back soon!
