I'm not smoking anything tonite. But will in the next couple of days. Probably my go-to Montecristo No.2 Torpedo.

So let's get this off the ground again.

As soon as I hit my days off I'll be relaxing with an Alec Bradley presendado and a glass of scotch. Just has a nice smooth taste and is just a good consistent smoke. Can't wait.

I'm a big AVO fan, and one of my favorite sticks is the AVO LE07. I bought a handful of them years ago and have been selectively smoking them. Burned my last one a while back and good luck finding a cigar from 2007 for sale anywhere. Just so happens you can find them in the AVO box sets still :)
I bought this whole set just for that one smoke, but I've burned a few of the others and they're pretty darn tasty.

For me it Doesnt get much better than an aged Tatuaje Black label or a Tat 7th Reserva.
Im unfortunately starting to unload my stash due to workplace tobacco policies. Hard to top a Saturday morning on the porch with the sun in your face and a mild cigar to start the day.

Well hell. Thanks to monthly poker night with the guys from church. I've developed a new hobby that will likely become pricey. I plan to go shopping for a 50-100 cigar humidor this weekend at the local shop.

Any recommendations for stocking up the new box? Mainly for special occasions and the occasional pat on the back. Honestly haven't smoked anything that I wouldn't touch again except for a CB Jackson that my inlaws put in my stocking. It was complete garbage. Padron and Monte Cristo have been my go to smokes. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I don't have very many friends my age to confide in!

I'm a big fan of most Tatuaje. CAO Brazilia is solid. If you find fresh stock of Liga Privada no.9 they are worth a shot. Crowned Heads Las Calaveras, Headley Grange, or JD Howard. Jaime Garcia Reserva especial. Watch samplers from say Cigars International, you can get a few good sticks and a shitload of waterlogged rockets.

Padron 1926 No. 9 Maduros has been my go to lately with Curivari Gloria de Leon and Davidoff Anniversario No. 3 thrown in every once and a while. Cubans/cigars in general are damn near impossible to find on the local economy, and I can't find a decent bottle of anything. I guess I have to spend my money on cigars!

Curivari is putting out excellent, medium to full bodied cigars. I think they're a tremendous value (most retail around $6 a stick w/o any taxes).

I'm an everyday smoker for ~22 years. My go to sticks are La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero D-700s and Diggers and the CAO FlatHead 770s.

Morning, noon, or night, it doesn't matter.

Before PRS my vice was cigars, have a Bob Staebell custom humidor in black walnut , holds around 200 boxes and used to be full. Smoke about 1 a week now - CoRo is still the best cigar out there, sold most of my Habanos ELs at auctions in UK to pay for my glass and rifles :)

I always have quite a few Padron 64 Anniversary in my humidor. They just seem to be great for anything.

Other cigars I enjoy and seem to come back to:

LaGloria Serie R Maduro
Fuente Anejo #60
Bolivar 1895 (this is a high end cigar with modest pricing; its not a Belicoso but this is an inexpensive yet great cigar)
Habanos Cohiba (real ones) I'm scared to smoke the 10 or so I have left because I don't know when I'll get more, but when you're in the mood for a grassy and smooth taste, these are fantastic
Partagas Black

My guilty pleasure is occasionally a Ghurka Grand Reserve Maduro; the one infused with Cognac. It's a nice treat when you're in the mood for something fun/different.

Finally managed to shed the annoying cold that has been dogging me since... fall. Everyone up here has had this damn cough for weeks. Makes cigar smoking... a non-starter. But back to full health! Yay. No more bouts with cold until I get on a plane in the fall to go motorcycling in Iceland. Guarantee I'll get a cold again... then. Until then...

Treating myself to a Montecristo No. 2 Torpedo. damn if there is a better cigar on the planet... I don't know what it is.

Cheers,

Sirhr

I got into cigars ~ 10 years ago, old guys at the gun club on my first born demanded a box of "padrons", so I bought a box and myself and a friend tried a couple, made us sick as dogs - but continued to try and got into cubans and began quite the collection - 200 boxes at its height. Sold some of those boxes at UK auction for 3000-4000 pounds ... fav cigar a cohiba robusto - just an old favorite. Still have 20-30 boxes in Australia humidor.

My four regular smokes are:

Davidoff Nicaragua Toro box press
Padron 1926 #90 tubo
Padron 1926 #1 Natural
Padron 50th Anniversary Limited Edition- My favorite cigar to date. They are the refills for the special 50 year Humidor set. They come in long white boxes and are incredible.
