I am currently enjoying...

La Aroma De Cuba Robusto - Med-Full body, smoth draw, creamy smoke, rich and spicy, very well constructed (reminds me of the good Cuban cigars I would on occasion get hold of)

Hoya De Tradicion Robusto - Med body, well constructed, consistent flavor throughout the smoke

Zino have been my latest find.

Mild creamy smoke. I am told it's made by the same folks who make Davidoff.

You know, you fookers with pics of tobacco related products suck. Shocked

I quit smoking in 9/2009.
And the cigars look awfully tempting, never did care for them much. But the pics look good. Razz

I smoked cigarettes for over 30+ years and quit cold turkey,it has been 10 years since I quit,I do like a cigar on weekends or while sitting around babysitting my cooker,I do not inhale cigar tobacco,and do not have any urge whatsoever for a cigarette.

I enjoy a nice Punch, Kristoff, Cuestra Del Rey Sun Grown, and VSG. And a host of many others. All the best.

Cigars are a different ballgame. It doesn't have quite the same addictiveness. Most Cigar smokers are occasional users, and can take it or leave it. By occasional use, I mean they don't have a "Dog racket" hanging out of their mouth 24/7 say like Winston Churchill. Its more like unwinding on Friday evening, special occasions and so forth.

In my humble experience... I experience approx. the same sort of pleasant, half baked, floating on a cloud feeling one might get with the type of smoking, that is not characterized as a form of smoking by many who do it. Rolling Eyes YMMV Its an hour or two of laid back & relaxed contemplative, unwinding me-time.

The nicotine is absorbed in the mouth, so inhaling is not required or recommended. Not unlike the other relaxing smokage, it also leaves a coating of spicy oils in your mouth.

My favorites are Fuentes Hemingway's. Short Story's, {if they are available} is my go to. The regular Hemingways are nice too. I dont like anything cheaper than a Fuentes Curly Head, and I don't like treading beyond the $20 price point.

Cubans.. When Kinky Friedman gave President Clinton a Monte Cristo... Bill said "uh... Kinky those are illegal" Kinky said "don't think of it as stimulating Castro's economy... think of it as burning Castro's fields." Many {if not most} black market Cubans are rolled in little Havana Florida... so Cuba isn't involved in the picture as often as people think. Castro actually prefers the prohibition situation. Without the thrill and excitement of breaking the law, and the mystique its just another cigar and isn't especially better than a Dominican cigar in the same price point.

JRCigar.com usdually has the Short Story.

http://www.cigarhumidors-online.com/discount-cigars/products.asp?nm=ARTURO FUENTE HEMINGWAY

I really like the Arturo Fuente 8-5-8.

I also like Dunhill Montecruz tubulares a lot. Used to smoke those i grad school. How the hell I was affording those on a graduate student stipend? Very Happy

Used to also smoke a cigar made in Bridgeport, CT when I was in grad school: Topstone. Very Happy

But, as I have a half a cigar or a cigar a night, my everyday cigars are below those price points. I really don't want to have a $5 cigar every night. Too cheap.

I think cigars really depend on my mood.

Most of the time I smoke AVO Maduros. Golfing it is usually a Padron 1964. I have a four Boxes of Fuente Opus X's that I have had in the humidor for about ten years that i break out for good occasions, much better than the current offerings, the sane with Davidoff Special R and T's.

I also like a few island sticks I brought home from a cruise a few years ago, all cohiba's left now.
I usually try a few new ones here and there from the local cigar store and have had some good luck with them, and enjoy the different tastes.

Guess it just depends what I want, have a few hundred to choose from.

I'm also a fan of a good cup of joe with my cigar. The oils in the cigar actually enhance the taste of my coffee and makes the best tasting cup!

I'm currently enjoying a box of Upmann Coronas Minor, a cabinet of Montecristo PCs, and have a box of Partagas Shorts in the bullpen. Also been smoking a 17 year old box of La Luna coronas that are just about perfect.

tampahumidor.com has better deals than jrcigar.

One of my top 5 cigars is the Nub Cameroon. Excellent smoke. 30-45 mins max, great from start to finish.

Another one of my top 5, and is HARD to find now, CAO Vision- epiphany. Just a damn good cigar. The first is good. The second is better, third gets even better, etc.

Recently smoked a CAO America, also had a CAO Brazilia.

Do like the Fuente King B. Also had a box of DaVincis that were excellent, but can't find 'em anymore. Most fuentes have been good to me. Did really like Rocky Patel for a while but the flavor kind of dropped off in 'em.

These are the only cigars I like. You don't wake up the next day tasting them. I smoke about 10-13 of these a week. I love to be out on my deck relaxed, reading having a cigar!

Had a punch in columbus...cigar noob here and the punch was a great cigar to my tastes it wasnt nearly as harsh as some of the bad cigars I have had in the past and a friday night cigar at a contest is a must have now.
