    So ... what's your favorite cigar?

    Mine is a toss-up between:

    Man-o-War Ruination
    Diesel (either Unholy cocktail or Unlimited)

    Favourite from the local off-licence? Montecristo by miles (very fortunate to have a well stocked Oddbins nearby), probably go a Bolivar if they're out, but you can pretty much guarantee a Tubos being there. Not something I enjoy that often, but could very happily go one now (shame its 2am though...)

    Must be a wrench, with that trade embargo, being so close and all:eek:

    Not a cigar. ;)

    Cubans? I don't really see the big deal - other than the whole "forbidden fruit" thing.

    Well, it starts off as a very cheap (yet very smooth) one. LOL

    Yeah, I get that they have a reputation (and like wine you pay money for the terroir even if the product itself aint that hot), but they can be really, really good.

    I've also smoked fantastic honduran and dominican cigars (one I can't remember the name of- google image says maybe Santa Damiana?- had a delicious peppery flavour) and I see how well its grown and rolled plays as big a part in the taste as where it comes from.

    Quite fancy planting some Turkish tobacco on the farm this year- they should be able to handle the climate and soil- it's impossible to get "raw" Turkish bacco in the UK otherwise (and not for want of searching).

    I've only had one authentic Cohiba and there is definitely some different about it. About half way thru my lips and gums were like pulsating like a for sure body buzz. That's never happened with any other cig I've had.

    I like Rocky Patels vintage 1990 or 1992. Not a real cigar smoker, but have had many types and these stick in my mind, so much I ordered some.

    Romeo Y Julieta Bully as a value priced but great cigar, and I love most of the Motecristo series

    :D

    I don't really smoke cigars. I've had a cuban in high school and some cheap cigar on the 16th of December. As far as I can recall that's all I've had.

    Now if this thread were about cigarettes I might have a little more to contribute.

    Some say that the uniqueness is from the saliva of the old girls rolling them.

    Others say it is the oils from their leathery thighs, as they roll them out.

    Discuss. :p

    Padron Ambassador : One of my favorite non-Cuban cigars. It has a track mint flavor. Always compatible. Whatever the occasion, this cigar rocks!

    I've been in Baltimore for a few weeks, and haven't really had much time to sit and smoke - besides, it's damn cold out - so, I decided to give the little cigars a try.

    CAO MX2 and Cohiba Black are both great when you only have about 20 mins. They are both still handmade, just smaller than their normal-sized counterparts.
