Who is the Tx Cigar Pirate?


The Tx Cigar Pirate is in real life a long time lover of the long leaf, Lloyd Lively, who has 25+ years in marketing, advertising, graphic design and TV/Film production. His long-time love of cigars and no nonsense approach to life has other cigar lovers coming to Lloyd for reviews and opinions of cigars, lifestyle and political advice.

- W. O. "Boss" Lively, 1884-1976
