Default Are you a Cigar Enthusiast

Are there any Cigar Enthusiast's on the Mane and if you enjoy a fine Cigar when do you smoke and why? What do you smoke and how much will you pay for a quality cigar?

How do you cut your cigar and do you use a humidor to store them or just a zip lock bag?

Use to be an enthusiast back in they day, but I was on a very limited budget and never really got into any heavy collecting. I had to give it up when I quit smoking although I do still have one about once per year.

I do have three humidors that I use to keep them as fresh as possible. I also use a punch on my cigars instead of a cutter (makes a cleaner cut and safer).

I would like to try a punch but afraid I would ruin a good cigar trying to perfect using one.

I used to be, but when the economy tanked, my cigar smoking tanked along with it. I have a humidor - empty now. My absolute favorite smoke is the Padron 1964 Anniversario. It's an expensive smoke, but if you enjoy smoking cigars, you owe it to yourself to get your hands on one. It's like smoking velvet through a supermodel's, uh... well I won't go there. But it's a good smoke.

I use a humidor, cut with a stainless steel cutter. My everyday cigar is a Montecristo Robusto special edition 2007, awesome cigar for an everyday smoke . Usually have one in the morning with coffee, one during the day and the last one in the evening. I also like Partagus series D or Cohiba Maduro and on special occasions a cigar I get from my chiropractor made for him by an old man in Cuba that used to roll for Castro. All are Cuban, a perk living in Baja. Nothing like a good cigar.

My favoirte every day cigar was the Macanudo Hyde Park... Punches are fun, but I preferred the steel cut because I thought it drawed better.

Punch is a good cigar I smoke them when in the states. I learned my lesson bringing Cubans to the states a few years ago. Customs confiscated a box of cubans. I told guy to enjoy them. He just smiled.

I hate the punches, seems to create a hot spot in my mouth. I like the easy draw of a full cut.

I started using them when the cutters kept taking off too much end cap and causing the thing to start to fall apart by the time I was done.

In terms of brands I found I very seldom went wrong with Macanudo, Punch, Romeo y Julieta, Onyx, and Fuentas.

The trick is to get a quality cutter and when it gets dull get another one.

Never liked Romeo y Julieta

Which Padron 1964 Anniversario did you smoke, I see those run between $30 to $11 each. Sounds like a good special occasion smoke but to pricey for me I like to stay around $5 and believe it or not you can find some nice smokes at that price.

What do you pay for a Montecristo in Mexico?

Retail they are about 26 dollars each but the owner of the cigar shop is a good friend so I get a box (25) for 2000 pesos or about 160 dollars.


I smoke Montecristo #4 when I am fishing because they are smaller. those cost about 18 dollars but I get then for about 6 bucks.

Unfortunately I only get to smoke about 3 a week usually at the golf course but I really enjoy having one down at the boat dock. I can usually drink 3 ice cold coronas with lime while having a good cigar......... life doesn't get much better than that. My wife won't let me have a cigar within a mile of my house and certainly not while out on the boat and we spend the whole weekend on the boat.

And yes I'm a big old boy a little over 60 years old and look just like my avatar, thatís why I choose it.

If you breath clean air long enough it will eventually kill you.

that's how I have always envisioned you.

I do miss a cold beer but I get to drink some NA beers and there are some pretty good ones.

No but cigarettes do because of the 2000 chemicals.

There are many 100 year old cubans that have been smoking cigars for 70 years and do not get cancer.
