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 Floyd Mosley out of Shreveport, LA.
Floyd is another Dapper Gent from Shreveport this week, apparently, Louisiana must be the happening state this month for the summer and have a pretty neat cigar culture.
Floyd has been smoking cigars for 17 years. He was first introduced to cigars at an early age, by his grandfather. Floyd chuckles about this memory of his grandfather, who smoked the cheap King Edward cigars or just had them in his mouth to chew on, which is very different from today’s cigar scene that would be considered taboo. These childhood memories for Floyd are great because he can reflect over the time spent with his grandfather. Also, these memories resonated as to why he became attracted to cigars, to begin with, which was the smell that he always loved.
What intrigued Floyd the most about cigars is that it brings a certain level of sophistication and that stuck with him, because he felt it complemented his style of attire and lifestyle.
When Floyd is having a cigar for the very first time, he does have some preferences, when smoking his cigar. He likes to have that cigar solely without pairing it with anything, so he can be able to taste the flavors of the cigar without any additions that a spirit may enhance or subdue the flavors of the cigar, itself. However, he’s a huge Scotch and Bourbon guy and some of his favorites are Angels Envy or any Rye Bourbon.
One of Floyd’s all-time favorite cigar is the Padroń 1964 Anniversary series Maduro in Imperial size. Floyd also enjoys cigars by, Tatuaje, My Father, Crown Heads, and anything AJ Fernandez touches is solid to him. Floyd is no stranger to the wonders of boutique cigars, which he loves cigars by Kafie1901 Brands, FQ the Governor, and First Lady by Black Label Trading Co., to name a few.
Floyd is our Dapper Gent of the week for his impeccable style. And, he’s currently the President of The Shreveport Afro-American Cigar Society (S.A.C.S.), which was established in 2010. This is a very close-knit group of brothers that love cigars and love to fellowship, laugh, and just enjoy each other’s company, they truly are like a family. If you recall, last week’s feature was a member of this group, too. If you did not get to read that article on Bobby Baker, click here. Outside of cigars, the members of this group love to give back to their community by way of having an annual Smoker’s Ball, which is a black-tie affair and ball gowns even and some of the proceeds go towards a scholarship fund for Autism. If your ever in the Shreveport, Louisiana area, be sure to check out 318 Infused Cigar Lounge, where the atmosphere is always electric. They have a mixture of good music, cigars, and spirits, which is all done in an upscale adult atmosphere. And, you’ll sure to see Floyd and other members of the S.A.C.S
