Hello “Cigar Community” and “Cigar Family!” Thank you for joining us and reading another great article here at Red Lips and Cigar Sticks™ we are happy to have you as one of our new, and/or faithful readers!
Today’s dapper gentleman (Dapper Gent) of the week is Wayne Brown (Wayne “The Cigar Guy” Brown) out of Atlanta, GA.
Wayne has been smoking cigars for roughly four years. His cigar journey started when his friend gifted him a Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real, which he remembers like it was yesterday because it had that much of an impact on him at that moment in time!
Wayne was first introduced to cigars at a “Fashion Mixer,” which was held at a cigar lounge. To make for a true night-out-on-the-town, Wayne invited a friend, to attend with him, who was already a relatively seasoned cigar smoker. When Wayne’s friend inquired if he would be smoking a cigar, which sounded taboo to Wayne at the time, he chuckled and declined, and said maybe later, but not now, as his friend pondered the idea, as to “Why” are you attending an event at a cigar lounge, and you’re not going to smoke a cigar?
Unbeknownst to Wayne, this same friend took the statement “maybe later,” literally, because a few days later after the event they attended together, while meeting up at a mutual friend’s house, was a cigar for Wayne, which was the Romeo Y Julieta Reserva Real Robusto. And, after walking Wayne through a crash course of cigar 101 such as how to properly cut, light, and smoke a cigar, he was able to instantly identify the flavor notes of this cigar, as he puffed, he felt connected to this cigar and he became more passionate.
Wayne’s first cigar, the Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real, he often remembrances over, because he can always think back to the time when he could taste the flavor notes of cocoa, cherry, cedar, and florals.
Wayne is a Bourbon and Whiskey drinker and this is what he likes to pair with his cigars such as the Le Bijou 1922 by My Father. He’s also a fan of Matilde line and Mike Bellody, as well as the GTO Pain Killer Corojo.
Wayne is our Dapper Gent of the week for his continuous support to the “Cigar Community,” which he’s such a modest and genuine “Brother of the Leaf” (BOTL), who loves to keep everyone informed and in the loop about great cigars, providing and offering great tips through his IGTV channel and IG videos and you can frequently catch him at Burn Cigar Lounge located in Atlanta, GA, and/or attending Monticello Bistro (Styxx Cigar Lounge).
