    any cigar afficianados around? i'm stuck here in the states where its tough to get cubans, but i've found many other cigars that i enjoy.

    here in dc there are two main shops and lounges- georgetown tobacco and j&r cigars.

    anyone care to recomend what they like?

    (i really don't want to hear anything about philly blunts or black and milds. thanks)

    Man, nothing beats a good Cuban. After been to Egypt and picking up two hookahs for myself, I've been pretty addicted to smoking the sheesha.

    I love Philly Blunts and Black and Milds --- after the tobacco has been replaced of course.

    theres a place in the madarin in makati, called kiplings, run by one of my friends dads, they have a great selection

    as always the cohiba and montecristo are great

    but padron serie 1926 is very good too

    My "everyday" cigar (I only smoke maybe 5 times a year these days) is a Fuente 8-5-8 - consistent quality and decently priced.

    Nothing beats a fresh, legally imported Habana Cohiba.

    for a quick ( 20 minute) smoke, i like romeo and julieta's Bully....its a robusta size and is a bargain.

    for a longer smoke i like the partagas black label piramid...beautiful torpedo with a nice oily wrapper.

    hoyo de monterey has a maduro box press( i forget the name) that is good...very strong and a hard draw because its packed so tightly.

    also, i like a bullet cut over the standard butt cut. your wrapper won't peel and i think it draws better.

    i've had good luck ordering from "mike's cigars" in florida.
