Meet Rosie McKane
San Antonio, TX

Where were you born/raised. Tell us a little about it…
I was born and raised in San Antonio, TX! I have also lived in Fredericksburg, TX, where I became a wine diva, and did a short stint in Corpus Christi, TX as a beach bum.

What is your favorite family tradition?
My favorite family tradition has to be…. St. Patricks Day. My dad is 100% Irish so we have a lot of fun! A day full of Irish music, over-priced cigars, booze, and lots of grill time!

Who is the one person you go to for advice? Why?
I go to my mom for advice usually, although she has led a much different life than I have thus far, she knows me better than anyone. She hardly ever agrees with my decisions but at the end of the day… mama’s always right!

What do you like to do on a rainy day?
Now that I have a screened in porch, you can find me blasting music, smoking a fine cigar and day drinking.

What is your dream job?
My dream job would be to be a wine rep, there is much less travel involved than in cigar sales. Plus, you get to drink wine all day so… duh!

What’s your favorite thing to cook, grill or BBQ?
If I’m at home, I’m firing up the BBQ pit. I love grilling seafood and steak. My most favorite food on the planet is crawfish! Love me some mud bugs!

How did you get into the “cigar lifestyle”?
My dad has smoked cigars for as long as I can remember, and being a daddy’s girl, you better believe I lit one up with him the second I turned 18.

What’s your #1 cigar right now?
Right now, I’m smoking the shit out of the RomaCraft Neanderthal.

Who’s your favorite cigar personality?
My favorite cigar personality… oh that’s a tough one! There are so many great people in the industry… but I probably keep up with Steve Saka, Juan Cancel, and Skip Martin. I have to thank those guys for some of my most favorite smokes!

What’s your favorite mixed drink? Favorite Beer? Favorite Whiskey/Rum/Vodka?
My favorite mixed drink at the moment is Jack and ginger. My daily beer is either Firemans 4, Shiner Bock or when I’m feeling cheap, Lone Star. I drink Flor de Cana and Jack Daniels for my liquor… no vodka for me unless I want to get white girl wasted…

What type of music do you listen to? Favorite artists?
I mostly listen to Texas country music with a little bit of Rock n Roll in the mix. My favorite artists are Roger Creager, Ray Wylie Hubbard, John Prine, and Robert Earl Keen.

What is the weirdest thing about you?
The weirdest thing I do….. I dip tobacco occasionally and I also hold my breath every time I drive past a cemetery.

What does being HoOchly mean to you?
HoOchly is family, I have met so many amazing people from being apart of this group. We have a lot of fun, not only sharing our love of cigars, but sharing life experiences, and of course, the inappropriate things we can’t post on our personal pages!

What do we need to know about you that hasn’t been asked?
I am a proud mom of two children, I love to fish, hunt, well… pretty much anything outdoors. I’m also a huge sports fan! Specifically the New York Giants, San Antonio Spurs, New York Mets, and Dale Earnhardt Jr.
