    cigars

    Discussion started by When - May 18, 2003

    who else here enjoys a good cigar?
    no im not talking about that philly blunt you smoked with your boys
    or that black and mild you bought for 50 cents at 7-11 last night
    im talking real cigars

    my favorites:
    -punch (royal coronation)
    -romeo y julietta (corona)
    -montecristo (no.2)
    -macanudo (duke of york)
    -onyx (toro) <- good for the price

    what would you all recommend i try?
    oh yes, i tried an 'acid' 1300 the other night
    i thought it was odd because the flavor changes
    but it wasnt a bad smoke and i didnt have to pay for it

    i dislike cigars due to the smell of the motherfuckers..
    when i was on holiday last year, the place we were staying at also had a german couple who chain smoked 10 inch cigars which stunk the whole place out. and they looked like men...

    moral of the story. if your german, smoking cigars makes you look like a trannie.

    Word to your motherfucking mother, When.


    I got my 50-count humidor stocked with:

    -a box of Cohiba Esplendidos, or what's left of them (around 15 or so)

    -Romeo y Julieta 1875 Churchills

    -Montecristo Le Cigare des Artes Rothschilds

    -Carlos Toraño Reserva Selecta Robustos, a few of them maduros

    -Hoyo De Monterry Excalibur 1066 Merlin

    -Hoyo de Monterry Excalibur No. 2

    -Punch Rare Corojo Rothschilds

    -and a few Cerdán Ottos


    I've become a pretty big cigar nerd this year, I've had my humidor for 4 years now but it wasn't until now that I really started enjoying them, basically because now that I'm out of school I can afford them. And now I'm smoking at least 3 times a week.

    I don't know what to recommend, since I'm unsure what you wanna be looking out for. The cigars you mentioned are all in the medium-bodied range and deliver excellent taste and kick for the price. If you wanna get your ass kicked by a strong cigar, try to get your hands on any Padrón, Arturo Fuente Opus X, or Cohiba Robustos. The strongest cigars I have are by far the Cohiba Esplendidos, I can't smoke them if I haven't had a hearty meal right before, it makes me too light headed and tipsy, but the taste is fucking amazing. You're a big guy so it probably wouldn't affect you. Strong cigars and Cubans also tend to be mre tightly rolled, so they have a tough draw and are a pain in the ass to keep lit.

    If you want milder cigars you can enjoy anytime, I'd definitely recommend the Carlos Toraño Reserva Selecta Robustos, especially the maduros. They're damn fucking tasty, perfect draw, mild-to-medium in strength, and come in a kickass glass tube with cedar liner that makes it look blingtastic for the ladies. They're also quite affordable, around $4 each. The Montecristos I have are my best smokes right now, but they were fucking expensive ($9 each).

    I also love my Cerdan Ottos, but these are pretty hard to find. They're not expensive by any means, but they seem to be pretty exclusive, since they come from this one warehouse in Geneva where they'd been stored for over 20 years. They used to be not-so-great smokes back in the day, but the 20-year aging made them killer smokes. I'm soon gonna purchase an entire box of Ottos (Torpedos), but I'll wait till I'm back in PR since that's the only place I've found them, other than a few online places.

    Cigars rock. Beer,

    El Mamerro

    Get your hands on just about CAO cigar.
    Shit's are butter.
    Great taste and aroma.

    So I hear... can't wait to try em out. I've never had a box-pressed cigar, shit must feel weird... some people swear by them though.

    Steve, word on the Punch... the Cohibas aren't exactly the greatest thing IMO, but they're better than most of the shit I've had. My biggest qualm is that they're such fucking prissy smokes, it's almost like you have to pet them and give them affection for them to smoke right. I got this box from a friend who visited Cuba a few months ago. Punch's are better, and so are cuban Montecristos... my fave cigar ever.
