Well, this is Kit. If I can suggest one thing, read His book Spanish Cedar (, a collection of writings about the experiences of one cigar smoker. Do not forget to light up your cigar while you are reading it.

Kirkus Review - Spanish Cedar

Like a good cigar, this poetry collection opens up as one reads it, offering subtler insights and keener rhythms the deeper one goes.


Montecristo Cigar Club

"Kit Adams is the most inspired and best smoking cigar poet that I ever met..."


           Gus Venegas, Montecristo Cigar Club

           Brevard County, Florida

Vanderburgh Humidors

“Honestly, I really love it.  It's poetry... It meanders, it's surprising, it's unpredictable, and it's spontaneous.  I think as a collection of [cigar] poetry, you have hit it pretty darn good!”


           Eddie DeJong-Vanderburgh, Vanderburgh Humidors

Executive Cigar Shop and Lounge

“A cup of coffee, a great stick, and [Spanish Cedar] make for a great afternoon.


           Tony Nardone, Owner, Executive Cigar Shop and Lounge

           Melbourne, Florida

Paradise Cigarz

“Some of these poems hit what we are trying to do here at Paradise Cigarz. A cigar … is a way of unwinding and relaxing. I was honored to read this [collection of poems].”


           Brook, Owner, Paradise Cigarz

           Rockledge, Florida

The Cigar Authority - Podcast

"But there are a lot of interesting poems in here. A lot of them do name cigars. It’s a nice read for inside a hammock with a cigar and a brandy or rum by your side. So, if poetry is your thing, you might want to check out this book ... or if you are a collector of cigar stuff."

"My fellow cigar smoking friend, Christopher Adams, wrote a book....a book of poetry . This collection of poetry was inspired from the leaf. He captures the passion, the fun ...the thoughts and feelings of the cigar experience. I am truly enjoying this book! I hope cigar shops stock their shelves with this book....would make a great gift for a loved one. Thank you Christopher for allowing me to be entertained and mesmerized by your words!"
