Happy Wednesday, folks!
We’ve been talking about the differences between indoor and outdoor smoking lately in the smoke pit, and I’m curious to hear your thoughts. Usually these conversations happen when we’re all bundled up, wishing we had an indoor area to get out of the wind.
Do you prefer to smoke inside or outside?
Myself, I’ll always prefer to smoke outside if I can justify the weather. I feel like my senses pick up more from the cigar overall, and I can get a much more enjoyable experience outside.
Inside, it usually feels like I’m smoking in cold weather. Like I’m sipping on chilled bourbon with dulled flavors. Even if I’m the only one in the lounge at the time, it usually feels like I enjoy the cigar less. Of course, when mother nature turns against you something is better than nothing.
That isn’t to say that this is always the case. I was shocked to burn several cigars inside Maxamar’s Ultimate Cigar Lounge (our Brick & Mortar store) a few months ago without noticing the same effect. I’m not sure if it’s the use of exhaust only rather than air purifiers, or just the sheer power of the exhaust overall that kept smoke from lingering too long. Whatever they did, it was my best indoor smoking experience to date.
What about you? What are your preferences and why?
- Do you notice a difference inside versus outside?
- How about in an empty lounge compared to a full lounge?
- Am I the only one that feels the same way?
Cheers to a great rest of your week!
