Lamont has been an avid cigar smoker for 20 years. He was first introduced to cigars by a dear friend of his, who smoked cigars. Lamont became intrigued by his friend smoking cigars, which lead him to try his first cigar during Super Bowl weekend over 20 years ago in Atlanta, GA. At the time, Lamont was attending an event at the former Justin’s restaurant owned by P. Diddy. There was a gentleman at the restaurant that was making hand-rolled cigars, and this was the pivotal moment for Lamont, which started his cigar journey.

When Lamont is having a cigar, he likes to pair his cigar with a good Scotch, Rye or Bourbon. One of his selected pairings would be Glenmorangie Sherry Cask or Angles Envy Rye. Lamont believes that pairing your cigar with the right libation is very important!

Lamont likes a variety of different cigars such as AJ Fernandez, Casa Magna, My Father Cigars, San Cristobal, Drew Estate, Fratello, La aroma deCuba, and of course La Flor Dominicana, to name a few!

Lamont is our Dapper Gent of the week because he truly likes what’s going on in the cigar industry with the influx of small cigar companies giving a fresh and different perspective on the cigar culture.

One of the things that he enjoys most about the cigar culture, is that it’s the bridge that brings people together, and it really doesn’t matter where you’re from or who you are! Cigars genuinely connect people together with the common interest of cigars, good conversation, which makes for a good time!
