Gents and Cigar Sticks: Dapper Gent of the week is Jonathan Terrance Ellison, out of Shreveport, Louisiana.
The art of being fashionable, dapper, stylish, and a cigar smoker that’s hip and trendy, as well as notorious for his love of “trap music,” but an honorable gentleman, is our dapper gentleman of the week, Johnathan.
Jonathan has been an avid cigar smoker for roughly 10 years.
When Jonathan was growing up, he was first exposed to cigars through an uncle, who was a huge cigar enthusiast. His uncle worked at a construction site and he would always have a cigar, once his shift ended. However, Jonathan’s true introduction of cigars and the lifestyle occurred when he first started working in the oil/gas industry, a geologist handed him a cigar after a successful project.
The cigar that Jonathan received was an Arturo Fuente Canones, which is a cigar filled with an exquisite blend of high-quality Dominican tobacco. This cigar’s wrapper is used to provide a rich and dark taste. The end results of this cigar is a mild-bodied smoke, which provides an even burn and an invigorating flavor. Jonathan at the time was an inexperienced smoker, and this cigar was extremely too strong and powerful for him, which caused a major amount of displeasure and discomfort when he smoked it.
However, this did not deter Jonathan from digging deeper into trying cigars, until he found the ones that matched his palette. And, from there, he grew into a seasoned and polished cigar smoker.
When Jonathan is enjoying his cigars, he has three choices that he likes to refer his pairings and cigar complements too, which consists of:
- Grand Marnier with Corojo wrapper cigar with Grand Marnier 150
- Hawk McSaylor MANI cigar with Uncle Nearest
- Tres Lindas Cubana La Mulata with Don Julio 1942
Jonathan’s professional work requires him to travel domestically and internationally, often. Therefore, he always takes it upon himself to explore the cigar scene in these regions and areas. London is one of his favorite places to travel to and while he was recently there for an extended timeframe, he likes to make sure he’s embarking in on an experience and not just a place to go. Therefore, he discovered that James J Fox, which had a great selection of cigars along with an awesome museum of Winston Churchill. There’s a hidden cigar bar at The Wellesley, which was nothing but pure elegance throughout the facility, he had complete amazement and he looks forward to continuing exploring and visiting newer locations when he returns.
Jonathan is our “Dapper Gent” of the week because of his very classic and attention to detail style that is very sophisticated. He has a very strong and confident demeanor, which surely aligns with him being debonair, with a little hint of edginess, he’s surely a “Dapper Honorable Trap Gentleman.”
Jonathan properly includes those necessary accessories to complement and complete his attire and look.
Jonathan has created a brand for himself and I am looking forward to seeing more to come from the “Brother of the Leaf” (BOTL).
