“Najat Abdo„

Dear Aficionados, today we meet Najat Abdo the queen of cigars in Lebanon ! Let’s read the interview.

 1)When did  you start to smoke cigars?

I start smoking cigars seven years ago, I had the curiosity to discover and to explore its aromas and flavors .

Who knew that a soft, pungent, brown, smoldering cylinder could be the great equalizer of men and woman- that you could hold it in your hand ?

2)Why did you start to smoke?

Simply by the fact that I have lit a cigar, means I have given myself permission to truly relax and forget about the world, just  to watch the smoke curling and disappearing in the air , and all my stress disappears with it – it is like meditating .

3)How many cigars do you smoke during the day ?

It depends, but usually I smoke 2-3 cigars per day  .

4)Which is the best place you have smoked a cigar ?

The best place in which I have smoked my cigar has been in  Conde de Villanueva old Havana-Cuba , I smoked an amazing hand-rolled Cuban cigar  with a bottle of sweet Rum .

5)What do you use to cut the cigar ?

I use a Punch if I am not smoking a Torpedo or figurado shaped cigars .

6)How do you feel while you are smoking ?

There is nothing more wonderful than holding, smelling, cutting, tasting and lighting  my cigar. I feel so free happy and relaxed.

7)When do you light your first cigar of the day ?

I usually light my first cigar in the afternoon .

8)What is the cigar for you ?

For me cigar is never just a cigar. Simply a pleasure .

Thank you very much for your time, Najat. Good ashes.
