    Romeo y Julieta- Churchill

    Punch- Robusto

    Nothing over spicy or dark I enjoy more of a smooth draw. Whenever I indulge you have to accompany with a nice Scotch. I go to France once a year for business and it is legal to buy Cuban Cigars there, incredible........

    Arturo Fuente-Hemingway very down to earth, spicy at the end.
    Punch - Churchill
    Macanudo Vintage is quite enjoyable. But better for special occasions.
    Partagas--used to be the best cigar from Cuba. They have a few choice cigars.

    Cohiba from Dominican Republic is ok. Cohiba in general is just played up too much.
    I mostly save these for special occasions.

    My favorite as well (of the non-Cuban varieties). Even their low-end cigars are expertly crafted. Best and most consistent rollers in the world, IMHO. Never a dud or tough draw. Wonderful flavors (their tobacco is grown in what used to be Nicaraguan cocoa fields and you do pick up a hint of that in the wrappers).

    Can get a Padron 3000 Maduro for under 6 bucks a stick and a great, great smoke. And of course their Anniversario line is pretty slick.

    I personally know Carlito Fuente and of course treasure many of the Arturo Fuente line and have visited and stayed at the plantation in the D.R. many times. Another excellent line (they also make the Diamond Crown brand for the Newman family out of Tampa as well...another great line).

    Aaaah...but those Cubans. As my long-time sales associate at Davidoff St. James London would say..."Majestic! Simply majestic!" The conditions and soil of the Cuban archipelago simply make for the best cigars in the world...and those that taste like no others. I love the advertisements from many non-Cuban makers that state that their cigars come from "genuine Cuban seeds." But they don't have what really makes the difference...the soil and conditions. A Cuban cigar just tastes like no other. I don't even compare them to any non-Cuban. They're both cigars. But they are like apples and oranges.

    The smell of cigar smoke literally makes me sick to my stomach. It's worse than cigarettes to me.

    For those of us who do not travel overseas (From the U.S.)very often and do not play the internet discreet brown package game which may be illegal, we don't have a choice but to smoke only the non-Cubans. Or wait for hand outs from those who do. Hint, Hint. Just Kidding.

    La Gloria Cubana is good. They are made in FL - by real Cubans!

    I think I like the Fuentes best. They are smooth and not overpriced. And I like the Churchill size - if I have 30 minutes to enjoy one.

    I was at Beverages and More in Orange last night and was impressed at their cigar selection and prices! Go BevMo!

    I first smoked cigars on a business trip to Canada and had the real Cubans. Romeo y Julieta. Such a wonderful smoke!

    Re: Cigars?

    Cohiba and Romeo y Julieta are my stogies of choice, but I'm not too picky; I've found two dollar mail-order sticks that were phenomenal. I used to smoke pretty much exclusively Churchills, but that was mainly because I was a Cigar Boomer. I've since grown out of that and smoke more manageable sizes now. I always enjoy the chance to pick up a Cuban while traveling, but with the counterfeits so widespread these days it almost isn't worth the effort. Someday, hopefully, the morons in Washington will stop pandering to the few vocal senior citizens in Miami who spoil it for the rest of us and the embargo will be dropped and I can stock the humidor for real.

    Ahh... That will be a great day.

    Re: Cigars?

    I was just about to light one up actually... one of the CAO flavors.... Eileen's Dream. Try it because it is actually a good quality flavored cigar.

    Other than those, I enjoy Cohiba and Bolivar more than Punch. I like lighter wrappers and surprisingly, one of the most enjoyable cigars I've ever smoked and the first one I ever did was a Tinder Box Special Reserve. Tinder Box being one of the local tobacco shops around here.

    So yes, I like cigars. But my most prized possession is my hookah. Anybody smoke hookah?
    "Peter," she asked, trying to speak firmly, "what are your exact feelings to me?"
    "Those of a devoted son, Wendy."
    "I thought so," she said, and went and sat by herself at the extreme end of the room.
