Today’s dapper gentleman (Dapper Gent) of the week is Alonzo Hickerson originally from Gary, Indiana.


Are you one of the “Cool Kids?” A person, who’s a trendsetter, a hipster, worthy of emulation, very witty, astonishingly attractive, could be classified as a leader, and one who appears to win in life. However, not overly loud or obnoxious, comfortable in your own skin, have mastered being your true self, confident, but not cocky. One who uses social media wisely and dresses the right way. Perhaps, I am speaking of you, and/or naming your natural born characteristics that exude from your demeanor and mannerism such as our “Dapper Gent” of the week, Alonzo.

Once Alonzo took his first pull of this cigar and the flavors were percolating his palate, he knew then that this would be the start of his cigar journey and him wanting to explore and know more about cigars.  He was anxious to learn.  Therefore, over the years, he became more educated about cigars with learning the essentials such as how to cut, light, and smoke a cigar. Secondly, learning about the proper tools/accessories needed for your cigar experience and for the preservation of your sticks.

Alonzo was slowly turning into a cigar enthusiast overtime!


Alonzo is not overly particular about his cigar preference, he will explore mild-to-medium cigars, full-bodied, as well as he likes certain infused cigars that consist of notes of coconut/coffee/chocolate mint. He loves the smell of those cigars and how the flavor leaves a long-lasting taste on his lips and in his mouth.


Alonzo likes to pair his cigars with Black Raspberry Cîroc, which Cîroc is his primary libation of choice.

Alonzo is our “Dapper Gent” of the week, because of his coolness and wittiness, he’s laid back and a charismatic gentleman. He has a profound appreciation and respect for developing a genuine friendship, organically. Also, he’s a Capricorn, so naturally, he’s charming and creative by nature, as well as he enjoys the social setting, but he’s selective.


With the sudden increase and popularity in the social scene being centered around cigars. Alonzo likes to stay connected, but not overly connected, allowing himself to be a part of the atmosphere, but keeping the integrity and purification of being a cigar enthusiast, intact. While being a “Cool Kid” in the process with his influence and leadership.
