    I still smoke 'em, but not the big stogies in which I used to indulge.  My "guy" at the smoke place claimed he could get me real Cubans.

    Who knows?

    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.
    So I smoked Partagas CUbans on a regular basis at one time, I lived in another country so I was able to get them, but when I got to have a Cohiba Cuban there was no comparison.  My lord what a good cigar!

    I've had Montecristo too which were good, Romeo & Juliet was ok.

    Never had the chance to try a Macanudo Cuban.

    The Royal Barbados cigars were really good too.  Hand rolled Cuban leaf and tobacco.  Very good smoke and the price was a fraction of a Cuban which was nice.

    I need to look into that Royal Barbados. The biggest turn off to cigars can be the price. Its hard for me to justify dropping $12+ on a cigar. I just find a few staples that are cheap, I usually stick with Arturo Fuente, they are good and cheap. Usually get a box of 25 for about $100, and even when cut in half they can still last 30 minutes. I usually don't have time to sit and smoke for an hour anyway. If I find a local store I like, I'll buy out all their seconds/mistakes when I can get a $12 cigar for $3 just because there's a wrinkle in the wrapper. 

    Funny you didn't like the Cuban R&J, that was my favorite. I'd get a small variety every time I traveled, and that was my favorite last time.

    Cohiba robusto is my favorite cigar. Montecristo 2 is generally the highest rated Cuban.  Partagas I think are fine and much less expensive than both.  I have not had a R&J cuban.  Macanudo, R&J and all that I am ordering are not Cubans.  Only the Cohibas, Montecristos and Partagas.  Don't want the wife to kill me.

    I don't understand cigar smoking. You don't inhale it into the lungs. Is it just about the taste?
    What makes a good cigar?

    My wife is a flight attendant & had a few Cuba flights this past year. Had her pick up a couple boxes of Romeo y Julieta Short Churchills. Sending 1 of the boxes to an old friend for his 60th B.D. I would rather smoke weed    ;)
    So, What you Giving ?........ (Thanks Speedy, Alesek, & Arq+friends)
    What You Giving

    Run away my son. See it all. Oh, See the World!
