Picked up few a Flor de las Antillas today on the recommendation of a friend and cigar aficionado and all I can say is WOW.

I can see why this thing was the number 1 rated cigar last year. And it was only $7 to boot.

What are y'all smoking these days?

    I'm very much a noob to cigar smoking, but that one has been my favorite by far.  I tried #3 last weekend and it was pretty tasty. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I'll have to give the Flor de las Antillas a shot. My go-to cigars are Montecristo #2, but lately I've mostly been smoking Edgeworth tobacco in my pipe.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    I have a very extensive collection of many brands, I consider them all to be my favorites. Davidoff, dunhills, fuente, torano, cohiba, montecristo, oliva, CAO, ashton, etc etc.  I'm more than likely sitting on 400 cigars, not to mention my pipe collection which I also enjoy.

    Any pipe smokers here??

    @CGWI, sounds like an impressive collection. How many humidors do you maintain or do you have something big enough for everything?

    I like the Hemingway, the seasonal Anejo, Casa Miranda, Tatajue Coronu, Ashton VSG, Liga Privada T-52. My favorite is the Avo Lounge Cigar. By far the most complex stick I've had. Every day smokes, Oliva G or O Serie, Brickhouse, Nub, Perdomo Excibicion .

    I've never tried the Makers.  They definitely look cool!

    I am a pipe maker by profession and  full time cigar smoker by choice( never use what you sell !!!).

    Although where i live Cuban cigars are legal I prefer smoking Non Cubans, especially Nicaragual cigars.

    Due to my job, and cince i know people in the cigar business I have a rather big selection of Padron, Oliva, Joya de Nicaragua along with a few boxes of Opus X that i smoke when I want to make a moment special!

    I wish one day I could smoke a great cigar with some of you guys over some great BBQ . Who knows......

    What brand pipes do you make or types of pipes...where can I see them?

    @chubbs...I'll try and get some pics up when I can. Swing rack sales are keeping me pretty busy.
