i did too, outside the fact it was one of the most unpatriotic things i had ever done but i didnt want to offend the guy , we did lots of business and on the side i would bring him things from the states and hed give things from his country ....All stemmed from me wanting to know about how his peers lived (customs) , he was equally curious about how we did things in the US ...

Speacking of customs...thats why the rest of the cubans had to stay , i didnt want to bring them back to the US ....

One of this weekends, when the climate is better, IŽll go to make your 7am highway parade Sandy. And then we can have one of my cohibas. (They are legal in my country, IŽtaking some with me when I go back to the States).
I also very much enjoy the ones made by Hoyo de Monterrey and Romeo y Julieta.

I had a couple of Cohibas, & to tell the truth, I didn;t think they were all THAT. Perhaps I was expecting too much... then again, I don't care for really strong and/or bitter cigars of ANY manufacturer.

My buddy and I thoroughly enjoyed a couple of Corona "263's" this week. They are big-fat Canuck cigars stuffed with Cuban tobacco.

Also a few Cigerello "Aztec's" (Mexican) flavoured in vanilla, choc., cherry, etc. They are those thin ones like Clint Eastwood smoked in those spaghetti westerns.

In order for the oils in the cigar to fully mature you should not refridgerate them. I try to maintain a relative humidity of 70% and a constant temp of 70-75 degrees. When the oils in a cigar mature you'll get a nice white plume on the wrapper. Yummmm. I would imagine storing cigars in the fridge would 'suspend' them in their current state and technically make them last longer.

sandy -- haven't read the rest of the thread (intend to do so tho) but i love cigars...on the average, probably smoke about 7 a week...moreso in the summer than the winter.

have to say - asking for top 2 is unfair....so many faves, not to mention so many different cigars fit so many different occasions...because i smoke so much, and depending on the occasion, cost means something to me...here goes:

hoyo de monterrey robusto - great for a short smoke like walking the dog or something to have after you've had a heavy meal...good for 20 mins - 30 mins.

opus x reserve - best of the premium cigar class...great quality and always a white ash...heavy flavor and smoke warrant the price...great for special occasions and uninterupted smoke sessions like poker night, cigar bar, etc...would be a waste to smoke this type outdoors as to not capture the aromatic smell...runner up in this class excalibur no1 (and is 20 bucks cheaper!)

el rey del mundo - great for an outdoor smoke where the cigar isn't your main focus (driving the car, playing golf, etc) -- it's a hearty cigar, good leathery durable wrapper, and earthy taste so you're not having to drink/spit every time you take a blow.

partagas #2 - lets face it, if you're in a cigar bar, you want to smoke a name brand and don't want to embarrass yourself with a no-frills cigar...this smoke fits the bill without breaking the bank....great quality smoke, great name brand, slow burn!

zino - great gift cigars...come wrapped and humidified...mild and good for the non-enthusiast...the mrs likes this one cause the smell is fragrant, the taste is non-offensive and the packaging is keen :thumbsup:

* didn't mention any cubans cause quite frankly, don't like em...they burn inconsistently, they're harsh as hell and i don't like paying top dollar for something i can't verify authenticity...that said, i like the romeo & julieta and close second are the montecristos...smaller cigar guages

** to be honest, because i'm smoking a lot of em, it's tough to justify smoking a $10 cigar while you're mowing the lawn...that said, i REALLY recoomend checking out the JR CIGAR (http://www.jrcigars.com/) website...have been smoking these for about 5 years now...was real sceptical at first, but they really do a good job replicating the authentics at cheap prices ($2.00)...wouldn't smoke em if it wasn't so...check em out!

I've heard the same stories. People left fortunes behind in the late 50's/early 60's to start over in America. These are well-educated, successful people, and they've done extremely well up here.

It's a beautiful country, too. That's the ONE foreign country I'd like to visit someday. When Castro croaks, we're going to have a huge party. That's why we'll never get out of Gitmo. We have to maintain a presence down there.

They call me Cuban Pete
I'm the king of of rhumba beat
When I play the maracas I go chick-chicky boom chick-chicky boom
Yes sir, I'm Cuban Pete I'm the craze of my natives street
When I start to dance everything goes chick-chicky boom chick-chicky boom
The Senoritas they sing and how they swing with this sombrero
It's so very nice, so full of spice
And when they dance they bring a happy ring of vaqueros
Singing a song all day long
So if you like the beat take a lesson from Cuban Pete
And I'll teach you to chick-chicky boom chick-chicky boom chick-chicky boom
Si, Senorita I know that you will like the chicky boom chick
Cause it's the dance of latin romance
And Cuban Pete doesn't teach you in a hurry like Arthur Murray
I come from Havana and theres always manana so Senorita.... Oh no...

At least cigars have supposedly less carcinogens than any cigerette.

I think you are correct!! Here is a little scan from an old university book of mine I kept because the health info is very interesting........look at the chemicals they add to cigerettes!!!

"Over 4,000 components in tobacco!!" Why would they need to add things like formaldehyde and various acids!!?? I remember the Professor mentioning that there are something like 400 added components to an unlit cig, but it turns to 4,000 when lit!

However, the next page of the book says the risk is lower for cigar and pipe smokers because they don't inhale, and you aren't supposed to with these. There are some bad things supposedly in cigar tobacco, but certainly not as much as cigerettes.

LOL! Make sure she doesn't buy you those cheap Bolivian cigars or wherever they were from. :shhh:

I would say that pipe smoking is the safest. It's filtered and the tobacco is more "pure," not from a cigerette, which will kill you quicker than a bullit. You could probably inhale with a pipe and not have the same risk to your health....

But how cool is it to smoke a pipe?? My Grandpa still smokes a pipe and he is 87 years old!!! I don't think Crockett on MV would have looked cool smoking a pipe. :D

Can't believe I've never noticed this subject before.....

Best cigars I've had, so far:

1. J.L. Salazar Y Hermanos Robusto (Special occasion cigar, full-bodied and a long smoke)
2. Indios Puros Robusto (my favorite daily, half as strong as a Punch Habana, but tastes much better)
3. Chevere Montecado Vanilla (very mildly flavored, very light bodied)
4. Mantequilla Double Corona EMS (like the name, buttery and smooth with a slight coffee flavor)

I stay away from anything Swisher makes. They are the junkiest cigars! They make Optimo Classicos, which are passable, but just.
My wife smokes those darn Phillies Chocolate cigarillos. Once in a while, I'll try one. Very chocolaty, but you can tell it's mostly paper and cheap tobacco.

davesdeville
06-17-05, 08:16 PM
Swishers and Phillies aren't exactly designed (or priced) to be a high quality cigar. You can't buy a quality 'gar from a gas station. I'll bet half of them end up like this anyway: First take a blunt, cut down the middle, why do I smoke blunts? 'Cause papers are too little. Fill it to capacity, lick em up and stick em up, dry it with your lighter then fire it up and take a puff.
