So, for my first post here at The Shave Nook, how many guys and gals here enjoy premium hand made cigars? Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Brazil, Honduras, Cuba, etc... I enjoy them now and again, how about you?

I love hand made cigars...I usually keep several around to smoke while I'm gardening, grilling, and golfing. Some of my favorites are Cohiba, Acid, Alec Bradley, and Gurkha. How about you?

I'm on helm watch ( I was steering the cutter) on my patrol to Antarctica. We hit heavy seas and 90% of the crew was
beyond seasick. The 'Old Man' is smoking his cigar and I coughed. He immediately apologised. I said " skipper, truth is I'd feel better if I could smoke too. He cut the tip of his spare,stuck it in my mouth and lit it just before we were hit by two mammoth waves and I was making corrections 2 seconds ahead of his order. We nosed through and I began humming the Sloop John B by the Beach Boys without realising it. Skipper started laughing and began singing the words. The chief of the boat came up,took one look and just shook his head.
His cigars were Honduran,long things with a light aroma and I've always wondered what brand they were?

I have a box of A. Fuente in the humidor. I smoke maybe one or two per week if the occasion arrises. Most of my smoking is with a pipe.

I used to be a real cigar fan but gave 'em up when my daughter was old enough to understand the down side of smoking....[sigh]

I used to be an avid cigar (and cigarette) smoker, however, when I quit smoking cigarettes, I found smoking cigars to be VERY difficult. Would love to enjoy one, but worried about falling back into the Marlboros...

Smoking cigars is one of favorite pastimes.

To me there is nothing quite like an evening on the porch in quiet solitude with a fine handmade cigar.

You bet. Last year I finally dug a fire pit towards the back of my property. Made a 12 foot diameter ring, filled it with 3/4 gravel and a nice cast iron pit. Some easy chairs and a favorite drink with a nice cigar, just perfect.Cool

Thanks Paul, but in my group of friends 500 to 1000 cigars is no big deal. Now for the quality... Thumbup

My grandfather Louie loved cigars. When I was a kid he would send me to the store to buy cigars for him. The store owner would look at me and ask who are they for. I would say for my grandfather and that was that. Today my grandfather would be in jail. I remember he smelled of cigars all the time and I loved it. He had this large copper ashtray on a stand and he would smoke and listen to long hair music on the radio. My grandparents had no TV, car and my grandfather didn't drive.

Blame it on my grandad and dad but there is always at least one box of Cohibas in the house!

Robustos are the 'regulars' with Lanceros for those special occasions...

I am trying to convince myself I am of a mature enough age to get my first pipe......!

Mostly smoke Cuban cigars

Really like the Bolivar, Cohiba, partagas and H. Upmann's

I believe I just spotted an old favorite, lying atop an Avo, Is that a Licenciado? Cousin of the Cuban Diplomatico?

I like a good cigar and can usually chomp my way through 3 or 4 on the golf course; it's the best part of the round most times. Rudyard Kipling summed it up very well, "A woman is only a woman, but a good cigar is a smoke."
