Nice! What's your favorite Cuban?


#6 8 years ago

Yeah, a Partagas Salomon is a favorite. Cohiba next...


#8 8 years ago

Hah! We have a Cigar Club.

#14 8 years ago

Whoa TZ68...I just noticed the cigar!

#16 8 years ago



#18 8 years ago

AND a cigar smoker! Love it!
Here's my wife...


#19 8 years ago

Just kidding! This is me and my wife...

#21 8 years ago

If it's a really good cigar you shouldn't feel anything or have much of an aftertaste the next day...

#28 8 years ago

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)

#32 8 years ago

Cigar smokers live a looooong time!

#35 8 years ago

I'll be puffin' on a stogie tonight with the boys! Porterhouse in Montvale, NJ...see yuz there...

#36 8 years ago

Best Cigar Prices.com
Cigars International
Yes, I go to the Paramus JR every now and then...but when you buy online you can save up to 50%. We have a Cigar Club at The Porterhouse in Montvale. (restaraunt/cigar bar..lockers, private room, etc.) When you're in Jersey, let me know and come in as my guest.

#55 7 years ago

I know this has nothing to do with cigars...but I can't get this image out of my head!!

#58 7 years ago

Hah! Nice...I was waiting for the Pinball part...


#60 7 years ago

Yes! DR cigars are great. Cohiba is really good.


#62 7 years ago

Sounds good!

#65 6 years ago
Quoted from northvibe:

so any suggestions for a newbie would be good

You can't go wrong with the following: (also, don't buy a cheap cigar...stick with quality)
Arturo Fuente
Romeo Y Julieta
Avo (for mild)
less expensive good cigars: Torano, Alec Bradley
This is just a short list and you have to decide if you like a mild, medium or full bodied cigar.
Enjoy!---Ted (on the left) Rep from Torano (center) Ray, my financial advisor (right)

porterhouse Brian 12 19 13.jpeg

#67 6 years ago

Can't go wrong with THAT!

#69 6 years ago

Maybe start off with a good quality medium cigar such as Romeo Y Julieta or Arturo Fuente.

#74 6 years ago
Quoted from Skins:

Or, find a shop that keeps track of your purchases and once you like one, they can recommend other brands based on your likes.

Yes, and sometimes when you buy online, they will do the same thing for you. Tell them you like a medium Romeo and they will recc similar cigars...

#82 6 years ago
Quoted from PW79:

I'm sure Ted is tired or looking at em by now

Never get tired of looking at THAT!

#87 6 years ago

Just got off a crazy drunkin' evening with Fintan! Got to bed at 4am. Neil is a good buddy of mine as well. Was with him the other day! Defiant is 4 minutes from my house. Porterhouse is 2 minutes away. Lemme know when you're back in town and we'll meet up.

#89 6 years ago

If any of youz guys are ever in the area, give me a shout.

#91 6 years ago

So let's pick a Cigar Convention and all get together...

#95 6 years ago

Nothing to be ashamed of....

#97 6 years ago

Not so! We have special Cigar Rooms.

#104 6 years ago

Yes! the enclosed deck is great, but we decided to not make it all weather and just make one of the guest rooms a Cigar Lounge...

#108 6 years ago
Quoted from Fooped:

We're down there every few months.

Excellent! What's your name, I'll tell Finty you said hi. I'll see him tomorrow.

#112 6 years ago
Quoted from BestShot31:

Next level are Cigar International, Thompson cigars, Mike's Cigars, Corona Cigars or JR.

Forget Thompson!

#119 6 years ago

Hmmmm...time for a Christmas smoke!...Can anyone say OpusX?
...and a few gift boxes...

#133 6 years ago

That's IT! They make another one that's HUGE. Good smoke though. Lasted almost 2 hours!

#195 6 years ago

Hi. Hopefully next weekend as I'll probably be snowed in. The Rabbit Air Purifier is here and ready to go. I have a bunch of Outer Limits and Twilight Zone figures I have to move as they have some kind of cloth clothes. I need to clear another shelf to but more books and magazines.
I've already put 5 big plastic containers up in the attic filled with books, magazines and film scripts and paperwork. It's a MUCH bigger job than I thought! (last pic is the storage room where stuff is being moved to)

Oh, do I have stories!

#208 6 years ago

#218 6 years ago

Met one of the top guys at Torano. Never tried many of their cigars. I had 2 excellent ones. Now I just gotta find out what they were...

#226 6 years ago
Quoted from Konajack:

Torano Exodus 1959 is the best cigar that Carlos Torano makes.
It is a nice cigar that always gets nice ratings and is relatively cheap ~ 7 dollars or less.

Yes, thanks. Their cigars are very good quality for the price.

...and Jack...my friend has an app that keeps track of all the cigars in his humidor with ratings.

#227 6 years ago

Here's what my friend just said when i asked him about the app:

---"Rate my Cigar" but it seems to only be for Droids, which I have. My friends with an iPhone are having a hard time finding anything as good for the IOS. --JB

#231 6 years ago

Nice! This is half of the Outdoor Enclosed Deck Cigar Room. Gettin' it fired up!

I had my first cigar a few months ago and fell in love.

Welcome to the Club!

#244 6 years ago


#245 6 years ago

Dude!...just got back from Cigar Emporium! They did not have Jamie Garcia, but my friend DID say it was a great smoke. I had these though. (That's Jim on the left and Ed on the right) The Jack Daniels Holiday Select was superb!

Fantastic! That Holiday Select is expensive, but worth every penny. Smooth!

#251 6 years ago

Cool! Just got back from the Meadowlands Racetrack. The girls got to go down to present for the winning horse. Great VIP Room...cigars outside lounge!


#253 6 years ago

Thanks! Yeah, fun place. On the bottom pic, the racetrack is right to the left...BIG panoramic window. This is a special VIP Room for people there that have horses. Our friends, the guy on the right has 15. (he only won once!)

#255 6 years ago

Sorry...what is a sxsw event?

#259 6 years ago

Sounds as crazy as the Chiller Conventions!

#265 6 years ago

Not a bad deal...but I'm spoiled with the Cubans my guy gets at $11 a stick...

#268 6 years ago
Quoted from wcbrandes:

Padron Anniversary

Had one last week. Not cheap at the Cigar Store....

#271 6 years ago

We get real Cubans from a local guy we've been using for a while. A few of my friends also use a guy that ships and I can get his info if you'd like...

#277 6 years ago

Porterhouse...food...dancers...bagpipes...cigars...GBeer...and cigars...

No, no....that's your SPEED...

#284 6 years ago

2 Cuban Cohibas on deck for Porterhouse tomorrow, er, today...

#288 6 years ago
Quoted from PW79:

H Upman with the tighest draw ever.

Did you try shoving a thin piece of metal down there to open up the draw?
...and if you bought the cigar local, just bring it back...they will replace it.

#290 6 years ago

Hung out with the East Coast Toraño Distributor, and I'll tell ya..they make some damn fine cigars! Who knew??

#304 6 years ago
Quoted from PW79:

Hah! Where do you buy cigarettes for 25 cents??

#311 6 years ago
Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

Maybe one day I'll get to have a smoke with you dudes.

Welcome! I think we'll have a few people meeting at the Chiller show. (have a stogie with Darryl)


#315 6 years ago

I'll give em' a try!

#318 6 years ago

Interesting news...and I'll keep youz all posted. I'm having a meeting and may end up being part owner of a cigar factory in the DR! I tried the product and it's great! More on this soon!

#320 6 years ago

Dominican Republic, that is...

#323 6 years ago

Thanks all. First meeting is this Saturday night at the Porterhouse Club Room! Keep fingers crossed...our bid is in for the company!

#325 6 years ago

Just go into your local Cigar Store. You can either get him a box for $120 or mix it up.
Can't go wrong with Arturo Fuente, Montecristo, Romeo, Partagas. Does he smoke mild, med or full bodied?

#328 6 years ago

...and Toraño is quick becoming a favorite for "everyday cigar."

#329 6 years ago
Quoted from nicoga3000:

From what we can tell, he doesn't have a huge preference on cigars.

So maybe stick with medium bodied to be safe.

#333 6 years ago
Quoted from wcbrandes:

gotta add Padron to the list

Yes! Get him a $20 Padron. Yum!

#342 6 years ago

A bit overpriced. Go with Griffin or AVO.

#343 6 years ago

Just got back from Cigar Dinner! Alec Bradley was the cigar rep! Fun times. 2;15am...gotta sleep!

#349 6 years ago

Cool! Hey, I'm selling my favorite cigar lighter on Ebay! My wife got me an expensive one, and guess what...I'm using hers!

#361 6 years ago

#365 6 years ago

#367 6 years ago

#368 6 years ago
Quoted from retired_user_101:

dang, i'd buy a t-shirt if they have xxl

Ok! He has one! The Club Member price was $10...and $6 shipping. If you want it, let me know.

#374 6 years ago
Quoted from sepins:

spfxted identify this cigar by tomorrow morning and I'll ship it to You! Yes we know it's an Opus.

But what do Fuente smokers call it???

If it's what I think it is...I call it XXX, or Triple X. Also known as X3 or Power Ranger.
...now...back to watching Episode 4 of Breaking Bad (4th Season)

#378 6 years ago

Shark would have been my next guess. It did seem a bit big for the XXX...
So, one of those should be the answer...

#379 6 years ago
Quoted from sepins:

Or I'll send You a XXX if You'd prefer!

I'd prefer the Shark.... ....that's what you have there, fer sure!

#386 6 years ago

Thanks Sepins...PM sent!

#392 6 years ago
Quoted from sepins:

Uggghhh...Sent the cigar to wrong person

#393 6 years ago
Quoted from Mudflaps:

Not sure if you guys have heard of cigarsforwarriors.org, but they're a fantastic organization

Yes..we send MANY cigars over. (and we got this)

ctcc cert.jpg
#395 6 years ago

Ohhhh no! Thank YOU!!!

#397 6 years ago

Still waiting for the second meeting. The tobacco is being shipped from the DR and rolled here in Jersey. About 30 cigars have been given to friends with a question sheet to fill out. At the first meeting we discussed having a new blend cigar ready for the end of April. I was hoping to have some for the Chiller Convention.
We're gonna try to set up something next week. I'll post Breaking News here...

#399 6 years ago

Hard to go wrong with Padron, Arturo Fuente, Ashton, Romeo or Partagas.
If you haven't had one in a while, the Dominican Cohibas are darn good as well...

#407 6 years ago

Yeah, I smoked a Cuban Partagas Solomon...and then stood up after 5 shots of tequila! (I sat right back down!)

#411 6 years ago

My pleasure, Brett! Enjoy! I'm off right now for our Cigar Club Meeting.....AND, I'm not taking the Ipad!!

#424 6 years ago
Quoted from PorkChopExpress:

Yo breath,

After I watch it, I'll send it to you.
....Almost 2am...just got in...smoked a Partagas, Davidoff and a NUB! Nighty night!

#430 6 years ago

Who the hell is Chris??
....and Romeo y Julieta ia a great mild cigar....

#433 6 years ago

Third base!
...and I know you're Chris, you sneaky basturd!

#443 6 years ago

Big spread. Tequila, or margarita, or Jame-o...a nice port can be right in there after a meal...

#447 6 years ago

No, the OTHER Ted...the guy who owns Maker's Mark...


#450 6 years ago

#525 6 years ago

For me....stick with Padron...

#529 6 years ago
Quoted from PW79:

Just buy an absolute shitload of cigars

Hard to argue with that! All the cigar mags or websites have 5 packs on sale. Try a few of those or single cigars from your local Cigar Shop before you commit to a full box...

#533 6 years ago

Those were the days!
Well, guys and gals...I'll be at the Chiller Theatre Convention starting tomorrow at 4pm. 3 days of cigars, tequila, Walking Dead, cigars, steaks, movies, Jack D and cigars.
