Ms. Booker is an avid Cigar Enthusiast best known to the Cigar community as “Ms. Zino”. Her Cigar love story began during her younger years watching her grandfather smoke cigars. She loved the smell of his cigars; which he would pair with a hot cup of coffee in the mornings. And, anyone who knows her - knows that cigars and coffee are two of her favorite things.
In 2004, she was re-introduced to cigars by her co-worker and the first cigar she smoked was the Zino Platinum Crown Series by Davidoff, which is still her all-time favorite. After years of smoking Cigars, she continues to expand her palate by trying an array of cigars and educating herself by learning more about different brands, awesome pairing options and many other components to cigar smoking. Ms. Booker, especially enjoys the culture, the lifestyle and she is especially proud of the recognition that women are receiving in the industry.
