“NOT ALL OUTDOORSY CIGARS MUST BE SHORT”
MYTHS AND FACTS – An outdoorsy smoke has proven to be a topic controversial discussion for two reasons. First, many aficionados are not aware of the regulations and restrictions when it comes to smoking outside. Of course, smoking on a private outdoor property where cigars are prohibited is an absolute no-no. However, there are no limitations holding you back from lighting any from our Cuban Cigars Online in public outside locations in the UK, for instance. Thus, there’s nothing between you and your opportunity to puff a cigar outside as long as you respect everyone around you. Another myth that falls short in credibility is that all outdoorsy cigars must be short. Why rush finish a habano while you’re enjoying a sunny Spring day at the park? Your free time is the only thing that will help you choose the right length of your cigar. Nevertheless, if we want to be honest with you like always, a short cigar usually makes a more pleasing outside smoke, simply because it doesn’t overwhelm or over-occupy your sense but just enhances them.
SMOKING AT THE PARK – Let’s say it’s a holiday weekend and the weather is beyond lovely. Of course, staying inside is not an option and the idea of spending the day at the park with your close friends becomes increasingly favourable. Snacks, soft drinks, and perhaps some music would be in order. Sounds like a perfect day, doesn’t it? The only thing that could make such a day even more memorable would be the company of the right Cuban sticks. The Partagas Shorts Cigar is perfect for such occasions. Featuring the Minutos vitola at just 110 mm in length by a ring gauge of 42, this smoke is small in size yet mighty in flavours, the ideal outside smoke for any experienced smoker. If that’s too strong a cigar for you and you prefer lighter aromas, don’t worry, the El Rey Del Mundo Demi Tasse Cigar will do the trick. Handmade using only the finest Cuban tobacco leaves, Demi Tasse is the ideal light flavoured cigar to puff while at the park.
