Stogie Definition: So What is a Stogie Anyways?

By definition, a stogie is a long cylindrical cigar that is inexpensive. By today’s standards, if someone asks you if you want to go smoke a stogie, that means that they want to have a cigar with you. That doesn’t mean that a “stogie” has to be an inexpensive cigar either. Many experienced cigar smokers refer to any cigar as a “stogie”.

Bascially, the word, “stogie” is slang for “cigar” in modern-day terms.

The term stogie or sometimes spelled “stogy” is derived from the town name of Conestoga, Pennsylvania which is located in Lancaster County. ¬†It is said that in the late eighteenth century, Conestoga wagon¬†drivers would roll out very long, thin cigars that would burn slowly and last them for a long time on their supply runs and deliveries.

So imagine this huge covered wagon being pulled by oxen and the guy driving it smoking a super-long cigar or “stogie”.

So hopefully that helps you understand what a stogie is and where the word “stogie” came from.
