Obvious question first. What the heck is a cigar herf?
It’s simple. It’s just a cigar party, a gathering of BOTLs and SOTLs (brothers and sisters of the leaf) to enjoy fine smokes and good company.
You’d think there would be an interesting story behind a word like ‘herf’, but, unfortunately, you’d be disappointed. All we can say about its etymology is that it was probably coined on an online cigar newsgroup (the precursor to forums, message boards and such) sometime in the 90's
