It's a boy!

Recommended Posts

ETA is this week.

 

Never have I tried one of these cancer sticks, BUT having my first kid I think warrants such an event. 

 

Given that I have no smoking experience at all... Which single cigar should I hunt down for this moment?

That's a good choice, and there are a few questions to be asked.  Do you want something smooth that will not have any bite or are you looking for something to knock your socks off?  Lots of good options and will you be the only one celebrating or will you be with a group of family? 

 

Congratulations by the way.  They grow up fast. Enjoy when they are little

Congrats on the kid. The cigar that got me hooked is something sweet and was super easy to smoke. I know some guys here when new did not like them but I will suggest Drew Estates Acid Kuba Kuba.

Congratulations on the new addition to the family!

 

Not a cigar smoker, but when I did I loved Philly sweets.......not big or small, brandy and sweet flavour, not strong.

The most expensive cigar I had had me dry wretching after a few draws.........🙄

Congratulations!!  I am not a cigar smoker either, but I had some Cuban cigars when I traveled to Russia for 10 years.  They were very nice!  H.Upmann was great!  Also, Montecristo.

Lol. No cigar smokers on the cigar forum, go figure. 

Then again, I guess there aren't many professional golfers on the golf forums...

Congrats!  Please let us know when he's born.  I would echo those who are saying go smooth - a mild cigar with a light colored (Connecticut) wrapper.  Rocky Patel Vintage 1993 is a nice, moderately priced, stick that fits this bill.  The aforementioned Romeo and Jullietta is also a great choice.

 

I'm not big on the sweet tasting cigars but some people love them.

I agree on the Connecticut wrapped cigar. For a good cigar that is not going to break the bank try Drew Estates factory cigar in the aforementioned wrapper it's a great smoke that runs 4 bucks per cigar.

Congrats! I still have my Montecristo in the tube from the birth of our first. Never lit it! Children are the greatest blessing! It’s awesome, so, many blessings on you all!!!

Thanks all! I'm sure eventually I'll move into whatever phase comes after the nervous /excited /scared one. Looks like I'll be hunting a Connecticut wrapper cigar down at the smoke shop tomorrow.

I rarely visit this sub forum as I have no interest in smoking products.  But I saw the title and wanted to say congratulations!

Congratulations!

And I can echo the comment that Drew Estate makes a good mellow cigar with a Connecticut wrapper.
