I've been a fan of cigars for a long time now, and I thought it could prove both entertaining and useful to know what you gents are smoking all around the world.

I'll kick things off with my last smoke, and one of my regulars, the Romeo y Julieta Mille Fleur.

Apparently there aren't as many cigar smokers around here as I thought there were! Biggrin

Tonight I'm smoking one of these:

David, I used to smoke cigars daily...before I had kids Biggrin.. Now I'm lucky if I get a hold of one once a quarter. My poor humidor hates me Sad

For a few years I was hooked on Davidoff cigars and had one at least 3-5 times a week. Now I wouldn't even know what to try besides some of the classics. Also, it's harder to get a hold of the Cuban versions here in the US. However, you are tempting me to place an online order for some Biggrin

I just got some 5 Vegas Golds in the other day.  Never had them so I'm wondering if they would go better with a Bourbon or a Whiskey...

My stash is down to less than 2 dozen from over 250. I only have 2 from isom left, but honestly I have been disappointed that I can't find the one like I had roughly 20 years ago I was given. I have went from ~10 a week to 1-2 a month now.

My preference are the peppery cigars from Nicaragua.

So how was it? I had one from the ISOM 20 years ago that was so good, and for the life of me, I can't remember what it was.  I have tried several since but nothing has compared. I got tastes of chocolate and Carmel and it was the best Cigar I have ever had to this day...ever. I wasn't smoking cigars much back then but even my wife commented on how good it was. A guy I worked with from Canada brought it to me and I have been trying to track him down! Is that wrong?

I have two Partagas left I have had for about 5 years, might need to light one up.

I haven't had one in a couple years now, but my favorite back in the day was the Montecristo No. 2 torpedo.  Yum Yum!

Pretty good, very smooth smoke with hints of sweetness and some nuts, but it wasn't as great as I was hoping it would be, considering it's THE Churchill cigar. For the price, there may be better options out there.

A very nice cigar indeed! I recently managed to buy a few 2011 boxes, and at 2011 prices to boot. I may be lighting one up soon enough!

Probably will have a Kristoff Ligero Maduro tonite in corona size.  Excellent little cigar with classic maduro flavors.  Biggrin
