Favorite Cigar

Speaking of storage. Anyone have any suggestions on a good quality yet maybe inexpensive humidor?

If noone has suggested yet, go with a 'tupperdor'. This one is like one of mine that I use for keeping 25-40 sticks in and take to herf's if there is a big enough turnout. Airtight seal is what you're looking for ultimately. https://www.amazon.com/Sistema-Collection-Rectangle-Storage-Container/dp/B00284AG5U/ref=pd_sim_79_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00284AG5U&pd_rd_r=FE2ZREY5TMDBYDGDQZ11&pd_rd_w=Qhbmu&pd_rd_wg=jQozp&psc=1&refRID=FE2ZREY5TMDBYDGDQZ11

 

When you get it in, wash it with soapy water then lemon juice (gets rid of any plastic smell). After it's dry, throw in a couple of large Boveda packs https://www.amazon.com/Boveda-65-Percentage-Individually-Wrapped-Humidity/dp/B00FWPQ8WC/ref=pd_sim_79_3?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00FWPQ8WC&pd_rd_r=53Q3R2NE6EFG2TM9TKQF&pd_rd_w=KiLzJ&pd_rd_wg=UuJN6&psc=1&refRID=53Q3R2NE6EFG2TM9TKQF and forget about it! It really is that simple, and highly effective.

 

If you are looking for any downside to storing in tupperware containers, it's the cosmetic aspect. That's it. I have over 1200 cigars in my collection spread throughout 4-5 large tupperdors and I gladly give up the looks for the functionality!

 

Humidors leak, are expensive, and prone to mold growth. Tupperdors are ugly. 

 

Sorry for the uninvited knowledge drop. 

 

No matter which way you go, enjoy your cigars!!

I have seen it a couple times on here but if you haven't tried it, go get an acid kuba kuba. Sweet wrapper, mild spice smoke with an easy medium taste. Currently my go to everyday smoke. Very nice strong buzz too. For about 10 bucks too you beat it.

 

For about 17 try excentrico, it's a great smooth smoke but a little hard to find as it started out as a limited edition.

I gotta say I love a cigar on the golf course.  

One of my new favourites is Vegas Robaina Don Alejandro

 

It's a big cigar, (double corona), with a medium gauge, (49-50).  It is easy to smoke and full of great flavours.  

 

And it will last almost 9 holes!! or 1.5 hours.  which ever comes quicker.

Too many great cigars to narrow down a favorite. I have a lot of go to cigars depending on the activity. For instance when I'm golfing I don't want anything too strong, I really like the Oliva Master Blends 3 out on the course.  Sitting on the deck after dinner I like La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor in either a robusto or belicoso especially with a fine Virginia whiskey like Wasmunds. I also favor Nicaraguan blends or puros like Padron and Norteno. 

 

All this talk of cigars...I see you guys later time to go light one up!

There is zero doubt in my mind on my answer.

 

Warped Black Honey.

 

If you know about this cigar, you know (and most likely agree) with my sentiment.

 

The availability of this stick is next to none nowadays. But you can fine one if you dig deep enough. Even still, if you do come across one for sale then plan on shelling out upwards of $50-75 per cigar.

 

Is it worth that? Well, what's a cigar worth in any sense? The taste, the length of the smoke, the smoke output, the company you surround yourself with when you are partaking? All of those things factor in! 

 

In my opinion, the Black Honey is not a $75 cigar. There is not a single stick out there that is, for that matter. With that said, it is a $50 cigar (for me)  :D

 

If you come across one of these beauties and can swing it, don't hesitate. And if/when that happens, report back to me on your thoughts! 

 

 

Word on the street is that they are releasing a new batch.

If I can find them, the Opus X, if not I'll go with the Veritas 412 or Torch

Gran Habano Corojo and vintage 2002 Churchill- great smokes for a great price.

 

R&J #2 Churchill (Cuban), and Cohiba Explendidos on the rare occasion one is available.  La Flor Dominicana Air Bender Chisel is also an awesome smoke.

Now there's a man with a strong constitution! For those novices I highly recommend avoiding this stout cigar as you may end up hurling your lunch. :wub:

Hahaha if it's that kind of cigar I think I need to go get one and give it a try.

Would not necessarily recommend you fire up an Air Bender if you are in a heavy competitive match - or even on the course, but it is a great smoke after the round and will hold up to any single malt beverage you prefer...

If you like the Acid Kuba line, I recommend the Cig Int. Legend series Drew Estate. Typical Drew flavor profile, less expensive. It's my current go-to. I also like the CI knockoff of the Macanudo Hyde Park. Smooth flavor. Relaxing. Nothing beats a round of golf with friends and a couple of nice cigs to puff on.

maybe its me, but the LFD Chiselito is WAYYYYYY heavier that the Air Bender.  pound for pound, for its size,that little stick would put a horse on its side.

Have you tried the Cro-Magnon Neanderthal yet? Even as an experienced cigar guy that one made me loopy.

I have, tried it at Jr's.  good stick, heavy body as strong as the Chiselito.  "Strongest" cigar that I have ever turned into ashes.....  years ago I got to visit Christian Eiroa (Camacho Cigars) in Honduras.  This was when the Diploma Cigar first launched.  He had his personal stash in humidors throughout the plantation.  First time I had the sweats smoking a stick,  had to drink a Coke to come down to planet earth.

I think for me, my "go to" cigar is the Nub, Connecticut wrapper and a nice cold beer on the links.  It's an easy smoke, not over bearing and something that won't take an hour to smoke.  If I have time to kill, Pardon 1964.  It pairs well with the Dalmore 12/15 scotch.

I'm a big fan of Drew Estate, including almost all the “Acid” line. Lots of guys look down on the “flavored“ cigars, but I smoke for enjoyment, not to impress anyone else. My absolute favorite would be a Montecristo Classic Double Corona (6.25 x 50). My boss went on a business trip to Havana about a year ago, and brought me back six! They were unbelievable!
