    Haha! I enjoyed the 50 tonight without feeling it afterwards I don't know if it's because I took it slowly or that it's a different vitola or what I was drinking...I am completely fine tonight but man, last night was a different story altogether!

    Funny. It DOES happen that way sometimes. No rhyme or reason. I've been told some sugar(cube?) will quickly negate that "nicotine-high" feeling?!

    Yep. I did the sugar thing right away I might have taken a few too many drags towards the end coming down to the nub. Those are the times when I always question my desire to smoke a cigar...

    Re: So, whatcha smokin?

    I really like cigars but since I quit smoking cigarettes about 2.5 years ago I find that smoking a cigar is a slippery slope that makes me crave cigarettes. Regardless, I took the advice of a buddy who told me to go get some Flor de las Antillas Toro cigars, and I obliged. Now the question is what bourbon should I pair it with tonight in cold Lexington, Kentucky. Any recommendations?

    The Flor de las Antilles is a nice cigar. Not sure about #1 in the world as ranked by Cigar Aficionado but it's good. I find the flavors to be creamy and nutty but on the lighter side. I would pair it with a relatively light bourbon. Maybe a nice wheater. Larceny, something like that.

    I would agree with this. Something light would be good

    Well, I was a heavy cigarette smoker for more than 12 years and have quit for over 12 years before picking up cigar smoking. It hasn't made me crave any cigarettes yet but I try to limit even my cigar consumption. Cigar smoking is a slippery slope by itself. Once you start reading the respective forums, your cigar numbers will grow quickly just like bourbon and it can actually get pretty pricey pretty quick.

    Agreed with the 'cigar slope' in relation to other cigars. I started with a tiny 50ct humidor. I quickly moved on to a "huge" 150ct and man, I was set! Then I added a 300ct and I was in business!! Then a tupperdor. And now, a full sized cabinet and smaller wineador (wine fridge conversion). It's a dangerous game!

    I also used to smoke cigarettes in college (but only when I was drinking, which was basically every night), and did on occasion afterward, but cigars totally turned me off of cigarettes. Once you taste quality tobacco it's tough to consume anything else, though I do realize cigarettes are more about the 'fix' than the flavors.

    RP 1990 Vintage torpedo out on the front porch on this absurdly warm evening. I know what's comin', so I'll enjoy this balminess one more time, before the yuk that most everyone else is experiencing makes its way here, to the Peach State.
