Every time I see a person puffing Cohiba cigars or any cigars for that matter, I always have the impression that this person might be rich. Actually, I always have this impression that cigar smokers are rich because of the movies I have watched. Most cigar smokers are reflected as Dons or Hacienderos. You will not see those smoking plain cigarettes in movies.
Anyway, I am not sure if my impressions are true but most of the time cigars are equated to rich people. Have you noticed that too? It seems that cigars and cigarettes also emphasize a status quo for smokers.
