Anybody on here a cigar enthusiast or aficionado? I have always enjoyed a good cigar, but decided to take my hobby to the next level when my friends bought me a humidor for my birthday.

I have been trying to smoke a variety since there are 1000’s of options out there. My short like of sticks that I have liked so far:

Full Bodied:
Man O’ War – Armada*
Man O’ War – Ruination*
Diesel – Unlimited*

Medium Bodied:
San Miguel
Arturo Fuentes
Cusano LXI Habano Sun Grown

Mild Bodied:
Man 0’ War – Virtue*

Up-Next:

*Pretty much anything by AJ Fernandez is money

Didn’t know if anyone was also into cigars and might have any good suggestions?

I am currently compiling my list of OSU football victory cigars. List to come.

Curiously going to be keeping an eye on this thread. We have a pretty good cigar shop right down the street. I need to go by again, might today or tomorrow. I haven't had a ton of experience, but a few I have tried.

Yea, I hope to get this thread going. I thought it might be cool to post a review as you smoke.

I tried San Miguel last night during the rain which was nice. It is supposedly new on the market.

It was box pressed, so I thought it would have a tight draw but surprised to find it had a very loose smooth even draw. Very mild taste, good smoke and had a very smooth peppery (little sweat) aftertaste. The ash on this thing was great, held together nicely.

I usually don’t smoke them down to the fingertips but I did on this one and I am glad I did, the last part tasted great.

Would l buy again? Yes.

I have to admit I was never a fan until I went to Jamaica and tried a variety of Cubans. Like night and day IMO. But it did get me started.

Not a smoker but one of my golf buddies is. He said he likes his cigar tip dipped in brandy before smoking.

My favorite cigar: Monte Cristo No. 2...packs a hell of a punch, but it's Cuban and hard to come by...I think I have three in my humidor.

Favorite domestic cigar is a Nat Sherman (either a Hobart or Hampton, depending on how big of a cigar I want)...made with a Connecticut Shade Wrapper, adds a little sweetness http://bit.ly/pBin8M

Another great brand is Opus X torpedos...only had a few--pricey, but fantastic. http://bit.ly/pSxDnq

Had good experiences with the Sancho Panza Caballero http://bit.ly/qbDUam

Really want to try a few in the Gurkha label http://bit.ly/oPx1fp

A (Cuban) Monte Cristo #2 is what I measure all other cigars by. Near perfection.

A Padron 3000 Maduro is my favorite affordable non-cuban. Also love the Padron 1964 Anniversary cigars, but they are priced in the Opus X range. The Sancho Panza's I will definitely second. If you prefer a milder cigar, a Montesino Diplomatico will do nicely at a decent price.

I always make the mistake of not remembering the good cigars I've tried. I did try a Gurkha a few weeks ago and enjoyed it.

Where are you guys buying your cigars? I can't get any around here and I don't really want to order whole boxes.

I've started smoking a pipe occaisionally. I can get decent pipe tobacco.

I don't mind buying from JR Cigars, jrcigars.com

They have a lot of cigar 5-packs you can order, and for pretty decent prices.

I haven't found a place in Stillwater with a decent selection yet (the Barn has some, but I smoked one from there and it was like it had never been in a humidor)

Don't yell at me for this but my favorite all around cigar is Rum Runners. As good as the 7-15 dollar sticks but only 3 bucks. Now don't get me wrong I'll still go for a Romeo and Juliette, Rocky Patel's, or any Gurkha's, but for a quick cheap smoke cant beat Rum Runners.

I will tell you though I tried a Hemingway Short Story and didn't like it at all.

My uncle gave me a box of #1's, same one Fidel smokes. They are amazing.

-Arturo Fuente
-Makers Mark
-Romeo Y Julieta

Those are my top 3 minus the Cubans my uncle sometimes hooks me up with.
