Wow, we all seem to have the same things in common, headphones, cigars etc.

I like to think of it as appreciating all the 5 senses that the big guy gave us !

Been smoking Cubans since the mid 90's, founding members of the Montreal Metropolitian Cigar Society (MMCS). Looking for any local Montreal head-fiers into cigars, we host a smoker every first Wednesday of the month.

Eh? I've a Romeo Y Julieta Romeo No.2 and it comes in a sealed metal canister. I assumed this was how all cigars came packaged. How come so many here don't have it? Isn't it essential in keeping the aroma and flavour in? Or do you guys smoke entire boxes within a week

Either way, I've never smoked a cigar. Do you guys smoke more for the taste, and just hold it in your mouth instead of fully inhaling and *****ing up your lungs?

But I'll admit some of those cigars in the first picture make my mouth water.
Most people don't inhale cigars . Rookie mistake.

The nicotine is absorbed through the lining of the mouth , just fine.

Most folks have a humidor. It is a ceader lined box with some sort of humidifier in it. They come in all diferent sies that hold anywhere from 10 to 300 cigars. I have a cheapy that holds around 30 cigars and the hunidifier is a small disc that I have to soak in distilled water once a week. It works fine and keeps my smokes in great condition. One more thing about humidors is that a cigar will age and get better with time in addition the flavors of aging cigars will meld with others you have in there, that is why the pictures show the cigars without the wrappers

Before our Sadie Hawkins dance with my girlfriend (yeah I'm still in High school!) a lovely Opus X Fuente Fuente wrapped in Cedar.


Needless to say, it was a fun night!

Wow man, sounds like a very good night. Opus X, mmm, haven't had one of those yet actually.

Its also been a really long time since I updated on cigars and what not. I actually procured two Padron 1964 anniversary edition Principes last weekend. They were just as good as I remembered. My local tobacconist hadn't had them in when I was able to visit him for about a year, so it was a pleasant surprise.

I also had the pleasure to smoke three Acid Blondies and a St. Luis Rey this past week. Its been a good time for smoking lately.

really good online shop at famous smokes (http://www.famous-smoke.com/cigars/index.cfm) , some of the best selections and prices around.

Fuentes - Hemingway series, Short Stories.. one of my favorites

Rocky Patel - Vintage Series 1990 or the 1992 are excellent sticks for the money

La Aurora - Preferidos, Gold, Platinum or Saphire, all good smokes.

Opus X... that is pretty much the crown jewel in my book, but only about 3x a year, that is a precious stick!
post #117 of 1363
Acid Blondies were my introduction into the Cigar world, I quickly grew out of the artificial flavoring stage though. I haven't had one since this summer, I'd like to try their newest cigars just for kicks though, why not?

I smoked a 12 year aged Rocky Patel and honestly didn't like it much, it was too strong for me, this was when I first started, I'll also be grabbing a few of those soon to try out again.

Arturo Fuente's are always a good time. Definitely a favorite of mine!

I bought a CAO Vision a few weeks ago when they were released, left it in my car by mistake and it FROZE. So...I threw it out, I was preeettyyyy pissed, let me tell ya!

But seriously.. After smoking an Opus X, life doesn't get any better. I'd really like to try some cubans though, I've never had the luxury of taking more than one or two puffs of one

any recomendations for a noob who wants to buy his third cigar...i like a rich tasting one

Well, since I happen to have a bias toward Padron, I'd recommend anything from both the 1964 or 1924 Anniversary series. Very complex and rich flavor. But in order to give you the best advice, what cigars have you bought previously and which was your favorite?

You all should give "house" cigars a try....I still love my Thompson Unique robusto's in maduro for $53 shipping included for 50. They are a little on the lighter side but they do have stronger if you like. They are not a perfect cigar...they may burn a little uneven at times but for a buck a stick they taste great. Has anyone had the Macanudo miniatures? I do have a soft spot for the Maduro and here I pay around $13 for a tin of ten...a great little smoke you can do in about 15 minutes.
Zara....I have not forgot my promise for my humidor....I am hoping to pull the trigger on my new one soon...if you haven't scored one the offer is still open...let me know.
