    Re: So, whatcha smokin?

    I ended up going with WT old no 8 brand. The cigar was great and I had to fill up my glass 3 times bc of how cold it is and how long the cigar lasted.

    Ultimately, any good bourbon goes well with any good cigar! I got to try some 1960s WT 8 year old the other night, awesome stuff!

    Coming from cigarettes, the duration of a cigar was the toughest thing to get used to. I have the tendency to want to keep puffing and want to rush to be done with the cigar. That's when I get in trouble with feeling the nic at the end. I have found that the smaller shorter sticks to be enjoyable initially and they still are. I find that I still don't have the patience to spend an hour sometimes almost two with a cigar.

    I love small cigars for that very reason. They don't take as long to smoke, and you can always just smoke another. I would rather smoke two different smaller cigars than one big one.

    What smaller cigars do you like? I have been really enjoying the Tatuaje Petite Cazadores Reserva, regular petite, and the petite reserva. Obviously the Hemingway Short Story is always a good one.

    I've heard that Rosa Cuba Angels are really for for what they are as well but I have not tried them.

    I had to check that wasn't my post, when I saw it. Couldn't agree more!
    I like coronas, petit coronas, corona gordos, and my fav, Lonsdales. I've gotten to the point where
    a 50 ring is my max, and prefer 44's and 46's.

    Completely agree with everything you said, too.
