What I have noticed since having my cigar smoking room at home is that when i'm our walking the fog I power through a cigar. 45 mins for a Robusto. At home, relaxed, they take a lot longer and I seem to really savour them.

Before COVID. No. During? Yes.  I've taken some plain cigars and some high end stuff on walks and have enjoyed them immensely.

When I used to go on vacation ( god it feels ages ago) I would take a long evening walk after dinner and smoke a cigar. I do enjoy it but to be honest I don’t pick up as much flavors as I do when I’m relaxing at home and smoking a cigar in the backyard

Not a walker. I prefer sitting and being relaxed to fully enjoy my smokes!

Can't enjoy it while on a walk.

I do enjoy it while driving the tractor. I've been on the tractor every day since Hurricane Zeta doing cleanup here on the farm. I've ripped through a box and a half of PLMC so far.

True, I’ve been unclear - it’s from the group of „small cigars” per definition. < 3 g, Tripa Corta, mecanizado. Different smoking, for me, for sure.

I've tried it a few times, usually to add some Vitamin N to "pacing" I'm doing out of stress more than walking for it's own sake (which I love). I always felt the cigar was wasted, and don't make that mistake anymore. Aside from the two clashing, the breeze and jarring caused by walking almost invariably create burn problems.

My job requires me to walk. Luckily it’s an outdoor construction job. Having a cigar while working is a life hack for me.

No can do. Smoking and fishing which is alot harder than smoking and walking. Love it

I enjoy it, especially in the fall. Although I would add that I usually prefer a strong and simple smoke for this purpose. Burn through some NCs, especially Nicaraguans, this way. Sometimes it’s nice to have the smoke be secondary and not require constant focus. Adds to the walk but doesn’t distract you.

Love to do both. Has to be a small cigar no double coronas on my dog walks. RGP I consider the official dog walking cigar I go with.

For me, the small club cigars are more impulsive of a smoke much like a cigarette.  A cigar needs some time to take in and enjoy.

Agree on this completely.  A good friend and I get together every few weeks and walk his dog (Alaskan Malamute) and then sit and chat while we finish our cigars.  For these evenings I take a reliable “no drama” NC, usually a Curivari or Padron 000’s series that’s solid but doesn’t require a lot of focus.

Nope.
It's either smoking or walking. A good cigar deserves attention.

Did this yesterday. Lockdown no.2 here and sitting working all week and nice weather yesterday culminated in a walk for a couple hours. Grabbed a Cuaba Exclusivos 2015. I kept the walk slow enough to the annoyance of SWMBO but there were some up slopes which increased the breathing rate. Cigar was a bit spicy so smoked slowly anyway. Plenty of people on the paths and park, not one complaint. Definitely passed the time quicker with the cigar. Enjoyed it, but much prefer to be relaxed, perhaps walk somewhere break with a cigar, coffee, sandwich, walk back. Enjoyed the cigar but of course lots of chat and distractions. Not something I'd do with a higher value or longer cigar. And I wouldn't light up if the walk is any more work than that. But was nice cigar and nice walk. Never say never again.

  Tried it so many times and finay swore off it no matter how tempted I am. I never enjoy the cigar; relights or burns hot and end up stressed instead of enjoying the walk!

Always wondered exactly what an Australian shepherd is? 

Years ago a neighbor had one--super smart, very frisky and friendly--wonderful dog.

If I’m walking for exercise I don’t smoke, but if it’s a leisurely walk hell yes. I don’t smoke when I sleep and I’m not old enough to start smoking in bed,....yet👻 Otherwise if it’s OK I’m happy to have a cigar anytime.

I come from a long line of cigar sitters.  Although I'm a Swede, my given Native American name is Sits n' Smokes.  I am called upon to carry the traditions of my forefathers.  While the rest of you can walk if you want, I have no real choice here.

Sitting down is preferred but I often smoke when taking out the dog, the problem I find though is walking increases heart rate and rhythmic breathing and I tend to get a bit high from smoking a little faster than usual.

I like to be still and present while enjoying a cigar. I am more observant that way. 

If I'm walking the dogs, or even playing poker ill light up a NC

I don't always have a place to sit and smoke, since I don't have a place at home, so sometimes walking is necessary. When I do, it always involves stopping somewhere to sit and enjoy the cigar. But, 100% of the time I prefer not walking while I smoke.
