The Official Cigar Thread

  • Smoked a Griffin on the porch last night. Damn near froze my ass off! But it was gooooood! But it got me thinking, has anyone built a "smoking" room in their house? I have an old coal shed and I just had the oil tank removed opening up a bunch of space in the basement. I figured if I walled and floored it off, sheet rocked it with insulation and a plastic barrier of some type(?) and added a restaurant type exhaust fan in the window, I could have a smoking room for me and two buddies for the cold winter months. Maybe without stinking up the rest of the house? :o Throw in a couch, a barca lounger and a cd player, and I'm listening to PJ and smoking cigars during the long, cold winter. I'd call it my Smokin' Man Cave. :lol:

    How about it? Anybody ever do something like this? Or know of anyone who has? Fill me in if you can.

    Peace.

    I know the house I'm getting next year has a small green room. I might convert it to a smoking room.

    I love Padron Cigars. Very good for only $15 a pop.
    Padron 1964 Anniversary Series was probably the best I've ever smoked.

    Very nice, too expensive for me. I call it good at about $30

    I popped down US$28 for it at the Casino gift shop. I was already suited up so I figured a good cigar was in order. I was craving a Padron though, but there was no real store nearby.

    Oh my, I thought those were more costly... Very cool, I'll have to try one out next time I'm at the tobacco shop. Even the $20 Padron's are tasty... They know what they're doing

    That was my first cigar. My brother have then to his groomsmen before he got married. I was seventeen and obviously didn't appreciate it as much as I would now.

    Maybe I'll pick up a couple stogies for my friends Jack and Jill tomorrow.

    That's for certain. I may go into the store tomorrow and ask what house brand most resembles a Padron

    I would. I haven't found anything better in the $20-$30 price range.

    I've never actually had a Padron at home, the store always seems to be out of them when I visit. It tends to be my vacation cigar.

    I love them gambling. I've never had one on my porch but I'd love too. I had my H. Upmann under a big tree that grew over the river in a place I kayaked too.... It was great with a nice beer! :thumbup:

    Nice! It looks like you have a good night lined up. Enjoy.

    I've got my humidor nicely stocked with CAO Maduro Gold Churchill's... Really mild and smooth. They can sometimes have a tight draw but I'm ok with that.

    I recently tried a Java by Drew Estate Maduro... was a great dessert cigar, couldn't smoke it often but it was like puffing on a brownie.

    First, I want to congratulate myself for learning how to use the search tool. I never knew there was a dropdown menu where you can search by title, and explains why I always got frustrated why when I searched a word 1,000 results popped up.

    Anyone roll your own cigars here? I just tried last night for the first time, will need to wait a while to see how they turned out. But it was fun, and a lot cheaper. So hoping they turn out pretty good.
    Looking for tips for anyone who does and what you recommend.

    Where are you getting your tobacco and leaf from?

    I applaud you for doing this.

    Wasn't too many places I found online. I bought whole leaf tobacco from Leafonly.com  . They had a starter kit that included some tobacco, a small mold, instructions and a few other things. If they smoke well enough I'll buy more tobacco and keep doing it. 
    Really wasn't a lot online about this, but thought it would be fun to try.

    I bet if you contacted Royal Barbados they would mail you some Cuban leaf and Tobacco.

    It is considered from Barbados decent so you can purchase it legally in the US.

    The resort place?
    Thanks, may look into that after I get some practice in.

    It's been a while since I was there but the Cigars are called Royal Barbados.  I don't remember it being a resort but a place on the outskirts of Bridgetown in a very touristy place.

    The cigars were damn good though.

    Will be putting in my spring/summer order here in the not too distant future.

    20 or so random easy to smoke cigars. Romeo, Punch, H Upman, Macanudo, etc.

    15 Montescristo No. 2

    3 Cohiba Robustos

    Probably a few Partagas Serie E No 2

    And boom goes the dymanite.  Gonna be a good spring/summer/fall at the shore.

    How is a Partagas even remotely close to a Cohiba!?!

    Ha, they're not, but they're a cheaper and fairly solid Cuban that I'll probably end up tossing in the order for good measure.

    Cohiba's will be for special occasions. Montecristo's will be a fairly regular smoke based on getting a good number of them, but they're soooo good.
