“I started smoking when I was 18. My father actually got me started when he gave me my first cigar at a family party. It was like a rite of passage,” said Heather. “From that point I was hooked. I remember it like yesterday.”
Fast forwarding a few years, Heather now smokes three to four times per week since her maiden voyage into the enchanted world and loves to try new blends and brands. When she is not unwinding at her favorite cigar shop, 1101 Cigar Lounge in Schererville, IN, Heather spends her time in tattoo parlors, exploring art, shooting guns (from handguns to rifles) and admiring pit bull dogs.
It is no secret that Heather brings plenty of sex appeal to the leaf with her bedroom eyes, succulent lips, and killer curves. Her striking appearance and adoration for cigars is a welcomed addition to the otherwise male-dominated industry.
“I’d like to think I do [add sex appeal to the industry]. The cigar industry is a very male dominated industry and I think some males find it intimidating and sexy all at the same time when they see a female smoking in a shop,” said Heather. “I’d love to get into the cigar industry. I feel I definitely have a lot to offer there.”
Heather is a pleasant treat at her local cigar lounge, 1101 Cigar Lounge, where she feels at home.
“I’ve been to others but the 1101 Cigar Lounge in Schererville, IN just feels like home to me. The shop is warm and welcoming,” said Heather. The staff, as well as the regulars, makes you feel like family. I’d definitely recommend this shop to anyone in the area or anyone just passing through.”
When it comes to cigar pairings, Heather loves to pair her sticks with either a fine whiskey or premium bourbon, her favorite being Jack Daniels or Knob Creek.
“I love nothing more than a glass of either Jack Daniels or Knob creek, on the rocks of course,” said Heather. “What’s better than kicking off your heels and winding down with a glass of whisky/bourbon and a lovely smoke after a long day. . .Nothing.”
As far as her favorite cigar, Heather loves Tatuaje, especially the Reserva J21. In fact, she would “recommend that cigar to everyone.”
“I love the Tatuaje Reserva J21. It’s a nice medium – full body cigar with notes of earth, wood, and some spice with a wonderful burn. . . At least that’s my experience.”
