- Get to know the gentleman behind the account @cigarsmokingmodel
One of the biggest and most popular Cuban Cigar accounts on Instagram with over 140K followers. An achievement not many people can claim!
2015 was probably a year when Instagram was starting to grow but not yet what it is today. Maybe starting early was the key to success for Cigar Smoking Model (@cigarsmokingmodel). 140K followers is a though audience to achieve and maintain. The combination of cuban cigars, cars and watches is a temptation every gentlemen would fall into. Is this account a mirror in which people would like to see themselves reflected? Is that the real key to success? You guys know the answer!
We wanted to know the man behind this account a little bit better. Let’s see what we get!
Let’s start with your first cigar?
CSM – My first cigar I ever smoked was a Partagas D4
Tell us more about that first cigar experience.
CSM – The first cigar experience was attending one of my dear friends cigar events in Liverpool. A great way to meet people, learn about the industry and smoke fine cuban cigars.
Do you have a favorite moment to smoke a cigar?
CSM – To be honest I don’t really have a favoured moment but if I had to choose it would most definitely be on a summers day walk or relaxing in a cigar lounge with great friends.
“Appreciating the craftsmanship (hard work) that has gone into every single detail. The movement / finish to a watch, the engine and materials in a car and of course the construction and flavours in a cigar”
What would you pair it with?
CSM – I love pairing my cigars with coffee or whisky. I find either of these balance out well with the flavours of the cigar
A pairing you would like to try soon?
CSM – To be honest this I don’t think about too much.
When did you decide to share your cigar experiences on social media?
CSM – I can’t remember the exact date, but maybe around the 2015 mark
Tell us a bit more about your life style (Clothing, food, free time, hobbies)
CSM – As you may see from my Instagram page, I am a big watch lover and car fanatic. These two things I find are the same as cigar smoking. Appreciating the craftsmanship (hard work) that has gone into every single detail. The movement / finish to a watch, the engine and materials in a car and of course the construction and flavours in a cigar.
We can see you love watches. Tell us more about it. Your favorite one?
CSM – TBH I don’t think I have a favourite. They all mean something to me and I got them at specific times of my life. One that will always be my favourite though is my Omega Speedmaster. I bought this specifically for my wedding but the idea of this was to give this to my baby boy (I wore it when he was born) when he reaches 18 or 21. This will always be a favourite and cherished.
A cigar that you haven’t tried, and you are looking forward to smoking
CSM – I would like to try a Don Candido No.504 or a Chateau Haut Brion. Or more recently the North Star from Rafael Gonzalez
Tell us about your way of cutting, lighting and smoking a cigar
CSM – I am a very simple man when it comes to this. I know some people like to make it an event as such but It is each to their own. I like to punch / guillotine cut my cigars. Generally always light with a torch lighter (Sometimes a piece of cedar) and then enjoy!!
Favorite Cigar accessories?
CSM – My favourite cigar accessory would have to be my Discommon raw carbon cigar tube. This is great piece of craftsmanship and something very very different.
