Cigar Thread

I don't know if this has been done, but I think it'd be pretty cool to get a cigar discussion going.
Anyone on here a cigar aficionado?

Nice!!! I've been there once. Not what I expected at ALL! So cool. I just finished a local "Tampa's Best"... Decent, very mild. How often do you go to Naples?

Well. Y'all probably smoke that high end stuff, but in high school when everyone else started getting into weed and all that me and my buddies got into cigars. Nothing special, just some $10 cheapies at the local liquor stores with humidors. Makers mark makes a very good cigar.

Best advice (IMHO) find a local store. Preferably one big enough to have a walk in humidor. If you're lucky enough to have a few in your area, even better.

Let the staff direct you through the maze of choices....

We have a huge place a few miles north of where I work. It's called the "cigar cave". The way my coworker describes it, it sounds like one of our aircraft hangars, haha.

There's a place a mile down the road from my house that has a pretty decent walk-in humidor. Just the regular Thompson, Alec Bradley, a bunch of different Rocky Patel stuff. Pretty decent selection of a bunch of smaller brand cigars. I'm about to run up to the store near work and grab one for this weekend. I'll take some pics.

Most clubs mail them to you. Find a club you find decent and get a sampler pack. Also, invest in some decent cutters/lighters. Every cheap cutter I bought broke on the first couple. I have a decent v-cutter, and one of those jet lighter pieces of crap.

Get a sampler of a few high ends, you'll find several bargains to choose from.

My favs: Cohiba Red Dot, Romeo y Julieta 1875, Rocky Patel Vintage 1992, Padron Family Reserve, Montecristo Red.
... and don't forget to try the most popular right now, Flor de las Antillas Toro. AWESOME smoke!

Damn. I've had a few Gurkas and liked them. The Oliva Cain is a big favorite.

I've been looking to going to Denver for a vacation. Colorado seems nice, so does Washington.
