So what's your favorite cigar? I'm a big fan of anything Rocky Patel makes, Partagas Rare Corojo, CAO Brazillia, Sancho Panza, and the Alec Bradley Medalist. My true favorites are the Montecristo #2, Cohiba 40th anniversary, Partagas Solomones, and at the top of the list, Trinidad Robusto Extra, all from....uh.....how should I say this.....south of the border.

My new thing is Montecristo ascots. Pretty damn good if you ask me.

Haven't had those yet. I'm so hooked on Cubans it's hard for me to break into anything else.

I like these mini cigars called Tatiana's. They come in a variety of flavors, most of which are pretty decent.

I just returned from UK with a stash of Cohiba Siglo II Habanas, rolled in cedar, packed in a cool yellow and black tin torpedo. Real nice. I know what you mean about Cubans. It's amazing that you can take the same seeds, plant them in The Dominican Republic and get a totally different taste. Terroir, I guess.

You know, it's funny. People who don't know anything about cigars just think cubans are the best because that's all they've heard. People who smoke cigars but have never had a cuban say they can't be that much better. I thought the same thing until I was experienced with cubans. Wow. What a difference.

While I agree with you to an extent. There are some honduran cigars that are quite nice. I've got a box of cubans on my desk here @ work. I generally don't smoke them as they are churchill's and I don't have 3 hours to smoke a cigar very often. Regardless cubans are as good as they get, but there are some mighty fine exports, although few and far between.

I don't disagree with you at all. Some of my favorites are Nicaraguan, Honduran, and Dominican. My only point is that if I have the option of a Cuban Montecristo or a "legal" one, I'd definitely go for the Cuban.

I like cigars, but unfortunately have a pretty limited knowledge about 'em.

I smoke my pipe quite a bit though... I have a pretty nice Italian made Savinelli pipe that I like a lot.

Same here, I love em but I don't know too much about them. There is a Cohiba Cigar store at the mall by my house, never really got a chance to go in and look around but always smells real good walking by.

my current 'normal' cigars are jose piedra brevas. I only smoke maybe one every month or so when I'm at my brother's place where I keep 'em in his big ass humidor. I've also got a few partegas and montecristos in there. my buddy is a big cigar guy and cubans have always been as easy to get as dominicans to me so I just go based on what I like and ignore where it came from... I've also had some good 'acid' cigars and 'punch' brand cigars this year.

Cigar lover myself. Here's a couple pics of my humidor and stash. I keep a limited supply on hand. About 50% of those are Cubans.

Just smoked a CAO Vision the other night... I really like CAO cigars in general.

Anyone have any advice or suggestions on humadors? I've been researching a bit lately. I'm in the market, but I don't want to spend more than $100-$150ish...
