    Re: Roll Call

    Checking in!

    I usually have a beer or some kind of other nonalcoholic drink with a cigar. Getting more into a rum, whiskey, etc. to pair with. No favorite yet...

    I also enjoy all kinds of cigars...but I find Cuban's to be overrated. For the price, you can find way better cigars than smoking something we're not allowed to have, haha. But hey, smoke what ya like.

    Re: Roll Call

    I do not believe I have checked in here. Have a great ISOM cigar along with a nice bourbon and a beer is one of my great pleasures. I enjoy it most in my backyard in the company of friends that enjoy the same.

    It is about friends and having a great time and the cigars and drinks add to the fun.

    Best regards, Tony

    Re: Roll Call

    I've posted in this forum for a few months now, but I don't believe I've checked in. Cigars have been a hobby of mine for over 10 years now, and I love pairing them with bourbon. I typically smoke Cuban cigars, but I mix in a non-Cuban here and there. I used to enjoy doing cigar reviews for the Cigar Inspector blog, but then I had a daughter and my time for reviewing went out the window... Maybe I'll get back into it one day. Here is a link to some of my old reviews if anyone is curious

    Checking in here and I'm with Whiskey Willie. I like a nice black coffee(black silk), but with a little bourbon mixed in to sip with my cigars. I found a nice deal on Gurkha Beauties that I really enjoy with my coffee bourbon. Makes for a good spring Saturday evening. Whiskey Willie it's worth at least a try once to see if you enjoy all three together.

    I used to enjoy a good cigar once in a while, but no longer. I have too many allergies and sinus and asthma problems to do that any more.

    I do miss it some times. I loved an Arturo Fuente 858.

    Ah yes, the Fuente 8-5-8 (and other brands 8-5-8s) are just about the perfect size.

    Re: Roll Call

    Hi everyone! I am new to the forum but not new to cigars or whisk(e)y. I live in Germany so I am around mostly cuban cigars and scotch. I like cubans, but I would take a Nicaraguan cigar over a cuban 9 times out of 10 any day. I enjoy cigars from Don Pepin, Pete Johnson, and Charlie Toraño to name few. Fortunately, over last couple years the selection of American whiskey has increased considerably.

    I'm a passionate cigar smoker. I smoke at least 2 a day and more on the weekend. I look forward to talking whiskey and cigars with you guys.
    Sláinte!

    Wow! Look at all the cigar smokers! Enjoyed them for years. Nicaraguan puro's would be my favourites, as I prefer
    full body/full flavour.

    Re: Roll Call

    Been smoking for about 5 years... I built a nice collection. Wen't a little to deep, then I discovered the Dark side due to forums. After that I sold off almost all my sticks to make dark side purchases the only ones i kept are some opus, anejo, Padron Anny, and Liga Privadas... I would say these days I'm only 10%NC... Sitting on 500+ sticks at the moment...

    I would say right now my favorite is the 2004 CoLa

    I hate to break it to you, But CC are actually cheaper that Nc... Just gotta know the right legit sources.. Way to many fakes out there, I only trust a handful of vendors.
