Hey guys,

Been a while since I was on here to post, but ended up at a wedding reception with no cigars, and walked out with two in my pocket and one in the ashtray.  Two Montecristo (NC), both of whose names I now forget (glass tubes with cedar wrapping and names scortched into the wood) and a torpedo of unknown origins, lol.  In any case, it was a good return to cigars.  Hoping I can pick up some tats and padrons in Gettysburg later this month.

Cheers,  

Zach.

Different Montecristo brands actually. In HK, those are the Habanos from Cuba.
 

Good thread Zarathustra. I am about to place another order: R&J Short Churchills and Montecristo Edmundos.

ooh i didn't know.  i started this hobby very early.  way earlier than headphone/audio stuff but i didn't get serious at all.  cigar to me is kind of like wine.  i like certain wine but that's about it.

Aren't cigars just bigger (worse) cigarettes? I would have thought the majority of the people here were more educated and would stay away from things like cigarettes and cigars. Though perhaps it was a misjudgment. Anyways enjoy your cigars.

No cigars aren't bigger, worse cigarettes.  A cigarette is designed to be inhaled deeply, and contains many carcinogenic chemicals added to enable them to burn consistently and to increase their addictiveness.  A cigar isn't inhaled, just contains tobacco, and generally isn't anywhere near as addictive.  If you enjoy them in moderation, they're like anything else.  In excess, anything is a problem.

ok i wasn't quite sure. i just assumed anything you smoke = bad.

Grawk, I knew that my joke might get lost in translation. I figured that Diamond Crown Maximus Toro might be a description of the smoker. Well, I get points for trying.  :-)

 

A cigar is truly one of life's great pleasures.

Not necessarily. Some brands like Nat Sherman are quite good and can be enjoyed like a cigar. Many cigar manufacturers also produce small cigars the size of a cigarette. A little Romeo y Julieta makes for a nice taste of tobacco without needing to commit an hour or so to a cigar.

cohiba

 

The drawback to keeping cigars for years before you smoke them is you forget which exact cigar they are.  This is some cohiba or other.  It's very tasty.
