Cigar Smokers

I searched around and didn't find any related threads.

How many of the ants community are cigar smokers? I really enjoy smoking cigars and do so probably once a week. I am looking to get a collection rolling though. What kind of cigars do you smoke? Do you collect or own a humidor? I have been researching and am going to buy a humidor to start this collection very soon. Any cigar connoissuers here? I would appreciate suggestions for my soon to be humidor purchase.

    Yep, my buddy has a few humidors with about 10K worth of cigars. We enjoy one every so often.

    Re: Cigar Smokers

    When I was 20-22 I worked at a cigar club. A desk top humidor should run you between 40 to 75 for something decent.

    How many cigars do you plan to keep? Unless you have a lot of cigars to keep, you shouldn't need anything more than that.

    Re: Cigar Smokers

    Not gonna lie, cigar smoke annoys the shit out of me. Way more than cigarette smoke.

    Probably just because cigars smell like absolute ass and the smell never seems to go away.

    Re: Cigar Smokers

    Few suggestions from my year of humidor ownership:

    Don't get a glass top, it looks cool but its just more places for air to escape
    Get a digital hygrometer, simply for peace of mind
    And get something nicer than the stupid little puck humidifier they give you (maybe try the beads? I heard good things about them)

    Lastly a '50 count' is only actually going to hold about 25 of the now popular 5-6" & 50+ ring gauge cigars. So don't buy two boxes or a box and some samplers and plan to fit it all


    I love smoking cigars, but I usually stick with Punch Rare Corojos/Gran Puros, Excaliburs, Romeo Y Julieta's, things in that price range. Just can't afford more as a college student

    You should try Partagas and Macanudo. Similar in quality and price as the brands you like.

    dunno what cigar smoke you have been smelling, but they usually smell amazing.

    Cigarrette smoke is pretty nasty smelling though.

    Re: Cigar Smokers

    anything by Jose "Pepin" Garcia.

    He rolls Tatuaje (all of his) and the Cabiguan as well.


    here's his personal ones he rolls http://www.elreydeloshabanos.com/cigars.asp


    The orange wrapper one is more mild, and the blue is smooth. the black packs a punch.


    I am almost exclusive on Pepin Garcia now, outside of a few cheap boxes of El Rey Del Mundo I picked up in JR in North Carolina.

    These are some of my favorite

    I have a nice pretty simple 50 ct humidor and a digital hygro from radioshack. I keep it in my closet on a shelf and it's been at the perfect temp/humidity for a long time now.

    My ex-gf bought me a real neat sampler of like top rated cigars (not your standard catalog sampler) and those have lasted me a while -- if you're reading this, yes I still have some and am enjoying them

    I wish I could do it a little more often, I need to make some more time for it. I have a nice more private porch now at my new apartment, so I may have to light one up someday soon

    The romeo's are actually quite better than macanudo or partegas IMO. I like the taste better. So nice to sit on a beach having one of those with a cold drink!

    Right now I pretty much just smoke Phillies or Game cigars, when I'm older and can afford to buy more expensive cigars I'll definitely get into it.

    Thanks for all of the suggestions, I have been reading up on the humidors and am going out to buy one today. Smoked a nice Nicaraguan cigar yesterday while golfing. I am embarassed to say I forget the name of it off the top of my head, but will post later what it exactly was. I still have the ring at home.

    I golf a lot, and smoke at least one cigar during a round. My favorite lately has been Coronado by La Flor. Great taste, kind of like vanilla. And pretty cheap - around $10 for a nice fat one.

    That's actually a nice cigar. I had one of those about a month ago. vanilla flavor, and almost cherries if I recall.
