    Anyone else here into cigars? I don't smoke often, but I do enjoy burning one occasionally. Just fished off a nice Arturo Fuente. What do y'all smoke?

    I usually go with some variety of Cao when I pick up a cigar. I'm not much of a cigar smoker either though, but I do enjoy some American Spirits.

    Not into cigars anymore, but I do smoke a pipe every night. Pipe tobacco is so much more affordable, and enjoyable!

    CAO Earth Nectar. My favorite.

    If you ever go out of the country, get yourself a Montecristo. Cubans really are the best.

    I used to smoke cigars and pipe but quit smoking altogether about eight years ago. You guys that can smoke a cigar here and there or maybe a bowl of tobacco now and then amaze me. For me, if a little is good a whole lot is way better, so for the sake of my health I just stay away from it.

    sure do miss the pipe sometimes though:eek:

    My favorites: La Flor de Cano Petit Coronas - Puroexpress Cuban Cigars

    You've got to be quick to order them, because they sell out as soon as they come back in stock. They're inexpensive as hell, especially considering that they're Cubanos, but they carry delicious vanilla and floral notes with a slight leather overtone.

    They're a little on the mild side though, so if you're looking for a hearty smoke they might not be for you. At less than $2.75 per stick, what do you have to lose?

    :I really like the ones from the Drew estate, 1500cc, kuba-kuba, and tea infusion.

    Rocky Patel is high on my favorites with the 1992 Vintage, Fusion, and Edge maduro

    I do enjoy a Cao every once and a while, Had a Greycliff "shaggyfoot" not too long ago and it was slammin':)

    Rocky Patel's are my absolute favorite!

    Victor St Claire is a close second

    Followed by Vega 5

    ...and when I'm in a pinch, I'll settle for a Cuesta Rey.

    I had a Legends Purple Label... which is Cigar International's Greycliff "seconds". It was decent, but it wasn't a Rocky.

    ...nor was it a "finger-burner"....

    A friend of mine gave me his band last night and told me I should match it up off of CigarBid... he was smoking a CAO "Criollo"... can't wait to try it.

    I like cigars and buy often from cigars international, there prices and quality is great. I just got Cezar Bronner 1956 (actually hand rolled in 1990). Favorite is Cohiba but they are hard to get due to where they come from.

    I think the Cohiba brand is over rated (IMOHO) They are good, but not worth the money they are asking.

    TY Matt I ordered Cohiba Siglo II, I would be truly happy if they show up these are the best. The price was a bit steep $187 for 25, $7.50 per cigar all the same worth the $. Again thank you Matt!

    A reasonable response, so what is your choice cigar?: Fair to shoot down my favorite but you should express your favorite

    I've never ordered from cigar.com but I've smoked a lot off of cigarbid.com (same company?)

    I've got a couple Gurkha's in my humidor that I'll probably smoke in the next couple of weeks... decent cigars, but not my favorite. Don't have anymore Rocky's, but I've got a couple more Victor Sinclair's (I misspelled that in my last post...)
