    Just a plain old Monte #4 from 2007... never disappoints, always available...

    A short stubby Kristoff maduro. Packed a punch for a little guy. Good flavor.

    Re: So what is everyone smoking?

    Had an Arturo Fuente Hemmingway Short Story this evening. I hadn't smoked a cigar in a long time, and it was fun one with which to get reacquainted, although a little too short of a smoke.

    I need some suggestions of cigars try, easily available, and not too heavy of a smoke. I also prefer shorter smokes to longer ones. Any thoughts?

    Try a Punch Champion, price is good, bigger than a Short Story and easy to find. If you enjoy the SS you may want to try an AF work of art or a Best Seller, both are bigger.

    Re: So what is everyone smoking?

    You know, I am not a smoker, but every time I see this thread in my new posts list I just can't help to burst in laughter. In a good way seriously...

    Dude WHAT ARE YOU SMOKING!!?!?!?

    Sorry it just ... ya know brings a smile to my face.

    I can appreciate a good cigar but I don't really partake in it often unless the occasion arises. Sort of like drinking champagne, I mean you should have it more often but it's always a celebratory thing most of the time.

    I remember buying Cuban stuff up in Canada growing up and having fun with it back in the day. But the last time I had a cigar, I was out at a bachelor party here and having a good time:

    Place stays open late too, but dam I was hoping they had better bourbon I was really hoping to have some Pappy Van Winkle that night at the place. Can't remember what I had though...

    Re: So what is everyone smoking?

    Hey Jack, check out the La Aroma de Cuba line, they are carried almost everywhere, are reasonably priced and are a good middle of the road smoke. Anything by Padron can be counted on to be good, and white label Monte Cristos are nice if you like a little milder smoke. All these are easily found, won't break the bank, and come in a variety of sizes. A good cigar shop can usually make some good recommendations if you give them a few examples of what you like.

    2004 Cohiba Coronas Especiales.... a very nice size for a warm evening...Laguito #2. The CE is one of the under appreciated stars in the Cohiba lineup... and rarely if ever counterfeited... so a safe pick if you see them while vacationng in the Caribbean...
