What Is a Cigar Herf?


A cigar herf is an informal gathering or event where cigar enthusiasts come together to smoke, share, and discuss cigars. It is a social gathering that involves the communal enjoyment of cigars in the company of friends or fellow cigar aficionados. The term “herf” is believed to have originated from the slang term “herfing,” which means to smoke cigars. The objective of a cigar herf is to enjoy the flavors and aromas of different cigars, share information and advice about cigar-related topics, and build relationships and connections within the cigar community. These events are often held at cigar lounges, cigar bars, or outdoor venues and may include food and drinks, entertainment, and cigar-related activities like raffles, competitions, or seminars.
