Right now I'm loving the spicyness of the Partagas Serie D No 4. I'm a Robusto fan mainly. I also enjoy the Ramone Allones Specially Selected, and it's cheaper too. I've got about 4 years on a box of little Cuaba Divinos, and they are quite tasty when I feel like a smaller cigar. Of course I enjoy the old favorites like Cohiba, and Montecristo too.
Only Cuban I ever had was from a Canadian friend who smuggled it across the border in College. Of course, I was an 18 yr old kid so I wasn't able to fully appreciate it.
I enjoy smoking cigars. Occasionally I will sit and enjoy a nice sophisticated cigar. However, my favorite are definitely not high end but remind me a lot of what Clint Eastwood smoked in those Westerns back in the day. Backwoods cigars don't take an hour to finish and go well with a cold beverage.
I always enjoy a good cigar! Although I'm not really a smoker, I just hate the feeling the next day after smoking one.
If it's a really good cigar you shouldn't feel anything or have much of an aftertaste the next day...
I smoke cigars here and there, not so much these days though. Only Cuban though.
Scotch Whisky is where it's at.
Quoted from coasterguy:
I read somewhere the 1 cigar is the equivalent to 8 cigarettes.
Hmmm, could be. You should never inhale a cigar though. The nicotine is absorbed through the mouth giving you that little buzz. I only smoke one or two a week during the golf season, so it's a pretty light habit for me. I wouldn't even call it a habit I guess.
I smoke cigars. I prefer Maduros. Onyx is my brand of choice. Great taste and not too expensive.
I mainly smoke when deployed as it is a social thing for me. A bunch of us would get together after dinner chow to chill out for a bit.
Also don't smoke much in the winter as it is too but ass cold outside. I don't smoke in the house.
If not Cubans, you can't go wrong with Punch. Ted's Made By Hand is also a great medium smoke. (and, no, it's not me...it's by the guy who owns Makers Mark)
I buy online from "Best Cigar Prices"..i can get 50 of the alternative to the punch roth's for less than $100
It is my only vice.I am a semi-professional singer/dancer/actor. Not good on voice even if I do not inhale.I haved smoked a big cigar every night since 1995.

You can get Them from Milan Tobacconist Roanoke ,VA. 155.00 shipped to your door 20 in a box.Telephone # 540-344-5191.

I smoked a cuban while in Jordan in the MiddleEast at a business dinner (years ago), damn if I didn't have the biggest buzz and get dizzy. Lightweight hand raised over here.
Anyone a pipe smoker? Used to love smoking pipes but alas, everyone always thinks wacky tobaccy.

Most tobacco shops do have those cigars but the bands are marked dominican republic,That's the only way they get by to the states.
The cigars marked dominican republic and not made I Cuba. They are knock offs of Cubans. While they can still be a deficient cigar, it's not the same. I have 30 up stairs in the humidor that a friend bought me in Miami. I Jason have plenty of Cubans to compare them to. My wife is Cuban and her mom and dad have worked in the cigar factorys for years. Not the same.
I don't smoke them, but I have quite the collection left to me by my father in law. I let guests have them when they come to the pub.
I got a nice 25 box humodor setup that's got a lot of those......south of Miami cigars in it. Anyone who comes by to play is welcome to a smoke as well.

A big +1 on the Partagas. My favorite Cuban brand by far... The monster Lusitanias are a thing of beauty, but the Serie D no4 is a fantastic choice.
As an addiction, cigars are a close 2nd behind pinball for me. My humidor is currently holding about 700 Cubans and maybe 300 non Cubans. I should be good for a while
Aged cigars are an exceptional treat.
My wife and I used to visit Havana and Varadero once or twice a year.
For non Cubans, I like Padron (1964s are great) and the occasional Davidoff. All very different animals.
Sadly, smoking cigars in Canada is a seasonal occupation. I just finished a Partagas Short a couple of hours ago. Very timely post!
What is a good place to buy cigars online? I used to buy from Thompsons but they charge an additional $10 to ship to Alaska. That is BS as a single box of robustos will fit in a flat rate box. So I refuse to buy from them now.
