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.
