got some cohiba miniatures for my b-day  YUM! - these little guys pack a punch!

 

gotta love those overzealous surgeon general warnings though" 

"warning, cigar smoking can cause lung cancer and heart disease"

 

here's a more accurate warning  - "warning, you'd have to be a freak'n lunatic to inhale cigar smoke"

sorry if i've offended anyone, and maybe i'm a lush b/c i dont smoke cigarettes, but in my experience the last time i even accidentally inhaled a minute bit of cigar smoke from a "real" cigar, i nearly passed out, almost puked,  and certainly turned a lovely shade of green..

well... just because you puff cigars differently than cigarettes doesn't mean that it isn't still carcinogenic (in the throat or nose area instead of the lungs, for instance). but pretty much anyone who smokes knows the risks, and it may well be that some people in fact smoke BECAUSE it's a way of taking a physical risk...

 

by the way, the last one I posted here, above, in a picture was not great, I don't recommend it

i'm not arguing against smoke being carcinogenic..   but saying cigars cause lung cancer and heart disease, well i go back to my original point.  my whole post was meant to be light hearted in the first place... i just cant fathom people inhaling cigars.

I'm with you. Unfortunately I inhale more of my own second hand smoke than I usually care to admit.

Yeah, I've been a fan of theirs as well... Still have a few assorted sticks in my humidor.

 

My current love, remains the Avo cigars, even just the classics (or the Domaines) without getting into special editions, are reliably fantastic. A Domaine #20, on a warm evening, with a cold glass of absinthe, or a good beer = perfection.

I miss Bolivar Torpedos... 

post #1329 of 1363

When I was in panama, I tried to find some of the better Bolivars - they were hard to track down... I ended up with Romeo y Julieta pyramides... which were fantastic as well, but I was really hoping to try the Bolivars.

 

I've also really been enjoying the Aroma de Cuba, Edition Especial... very tasty.

We own property in Uruguay, so I in addition to my US passport I have an Uruguayan passport.  We have not had time to travel to Cuba on our most recent visits, but next time I will surely stock up. Romeo y Julieta is also a terrific product, so you are not suffering too much. biggrin.gif

i've always wondered how much good cubans actually cost in cuba?  i would imagine they are marked up pretty signifigantly everywhere else in the world.

 

anybody know?

 

a good cohiba, or bolivar, or montecristo?  they seem to go for around $10-15 U.S. on average in most places in the world i've been

well, in european airports (not the most inexpensive places to show, I know - but still...) like frankfurt and amsterdam, you get them for less than that. and closer to the US, you can get them in good stores in mexico. however, in both cases one should take some care to avoid falling for counterfeits - there are a few cigar sites that show you what to check for on cigars, boxes, and export stamps. most I ever paid for a cohiba was in norway (very high taxes) and it was in the price range you mention... I haven't been to cuba, but I'd love to go!

Have smoked a few in my day interested in getting into collecting and smoking. What are some favourites of long time smokers for me to try out?

Here is a bomb I got from a friend over at the Asylum and bodybuilding.com:

He hit me pretty hard. I had smacked him with a 10 stick Tatuaje bomb.

Lovely. Looks like the right side features a Partagas P2 and D4. And are those Monte Cristo #3s?

 

Sweet!
