Nikki first became a smoker over 20 years ago -- she tried flavored cigarillos offered by a band member and loved them. From there she explored flavored cigars and her tastes began to evolve, from cognac- and rum-dipped wrappers to ACID infused cigars, to "regular" cigars. She was fortunate to discover Cigar Sense, an online tasting program which helped her to further refine her tastes and find even more cigars to enjoy. Accdording to Nikki, cigar smoking is a restorative, relaxing, and rewarding activity -- to enjoy the company of friends (and make new ones) over a stick is something she never gets tired of experiencing.
