About the only cigars I have ever tied into, other than a few Cuban Cohiba's before a few years ago, were nasty stock. I started flying to Belize every year on vacation and while I was there, I started trying several different varieties and was pleasantly surprised. At this point I have two humidors and several different selections. I still don't smoke that many, but I break one out on Friday nights, or when the boys are over for a beer. Are any of you guys into cigars?

Yeah, I'm a huge fan of cigars. Some of my favorites right now are the Partagas Cifuentes, Diesel, and Padilla 1932s.

I've mentioned them before, but IMO, you absolutely cannot go wrong with a good ol' Rocky Patel 1990.

1992 is quite alright as well.

Thanks, man. I still have a few of the junior RPs in my humidor. Each pack comes with two 1990s, two 1992s, and 2 sun grown. All are great and nice for when you don't have time for a full size stick.

I used to be into cigars.

Sadly, they started triggering a migraine problem I thought I had beat. So I had to give them up. Shame too, because I have a beautiful cherry wood humidor sitting empty.

The last cigar I smoked was this:

The best bang for the buck are Consuegra's sold by JR's.

They are Villiazon factory seconds and for the price and value they can not be beat.

The 9's are a good 45 min smoke,

Villizon makes ERDM, Punch, Belinda, and JR Ultimates.

I like the maduro the best with some Crown.

I used to enjoy a good cigar every now and again. I gave it up, (too expensive).
Especially since I was a little brand loyal to Rocky Patel's and CAO Double Maduro's.

Raiderhader. It would seem voicing my disdain for the sport of soccer was the equivilant of pissing in his Cheerios.

I haven't had a good cigar in a while, I'm due. Might have to pick a San Cristbol tomorrow when I get into town.

So what's the point of a cigar? Do you get high? Relaxed? Feel good? If I remember correctly, you're not supposed to inhale the smoke, like in a cigarette.

It's about the flavor and aroma. Which I suppose can be relaxing if you are really enjoying it...

I loves me some cigars, though my tastes aren't refined enough to consider myself an aficionado. I enjoy smoking on the golf course, and will break out a stick on a nice summer day. Can't really say I have a favorite, but I like Rocky Patel, Arturo Fuente, Indian Tabac, Ghurka, 5 Vegas, CAO, and probably a few others I'm forgetting. I like Drew Estate for the golf course - inexpensive, tasty, and easy to smoke...

So I tried an Acid yesterday, went with the Kuba Maduro. Will NOT being wasting my money on that crap again. I swear they must saturate the wrapper in sugar. Not what I'm looking for in a cigar.

Yeah, I started with Macs - used to get a box of the Hyde Park from time to time. It wasn't bad, but it doesn't really come close to the flavor you get from the better cigars, IMO. Maybe some other Macs are better.

Admittedly, I have very little experience in this area, but I would agree. My bud in Florida has a Cuban guy as one of his clients. He paid some dough to get some real Cuban cigars to send back with me last year. They were alright, but I was expecting to be really impressed and I just wasn't. The Dominicans I order taste just about as good.

Two.

One holds 200, the other is a "humidor chest," or foot locker that holds around 450. The 200 is full and the 450 still has a lot of room. Around 125 in it right now I would guess. I did however get in 30 Padilla Habano 2nds Torpedo's today to fill a little room. Best cigar I have had to date. https://www.cigarsinternational.com/

And Padilla Habano is the best you've ever had? I'm going to have to try that one for sure.

Well if anyone cared to know my opinion on the subject I'd have to sayTampa Gold.

They're made 92 year old gentleman from I think St. Pete twho was taught by his Cuban father who had made them by trade. He supposedly has no protégé, no student or children. He doesn't make them for the money, and his prices are never affected by tax hikes or inflation if you know what I mean cost remaining about $60 for a bakers dozen.

Some great info in this thread, especially from FMB, but I bumped this one because its more current.

I'm new to cigar smoking. I've traveled through the Caribbean and done the when in Rome thing with Cubans, but never really knew what I was doing or appreciated what I was smoking. Been buying some sticks lately and enjoying them. Some I've had that I've enjoyed are:

Rocky Patel: '92 and the Decade ('90 is next on my list)
Acid: Blondie (good starter cigar and hot weather smoke)

For the fights tonight I've got an Arturo Fuente Cuban Belisco which I've enjoyed a couple of weekends ago.

I like a good 30-45 minute smoke that doesn't overpower me and comes in under $10.

I'd take some publication recommendations if anyone has any. I don't have a humidor so I'm a one at a time purchaser
