The History of the Churchill Cigar
The Churchill cigar is named after Sir Winston Churchill, who was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom during World War II. Churchill was known to be a cigar aficionado and smoked cigars regularly throughout his life, even during important political meetings and conferences.
It is believed that Churchill favored cigars that were long and thick, and he was often seen smoking cigars that were between seven and eight inches long. As a result, cigars that were similar in size and shape to the cigars that Churchill smoked became known as “Churchill” cigars in his honor.
Today, Churchill cigars are still popular among cigar enthusiasts and come in a range of sizes and flavors. While the size and shape of the Churchill cigar may have been inspired by Churchill’s preference for larger cigars, the name has become a popular way to describe any cigar of a similar size and shape.
