    I am usually puffing on a Rocky Patel Edge which is about a $7 cigar and a very nice one.  My other favorites are Excalibur maduro, Avo, Paul Garmarian, Ashton Cabinets and a Cuban Cohiba Esplendido if I can get my hands on one.  On Memorial day I did a Pork Butt low and slow.  A good friend gave me an Arturo Fuente Opus X, which is a great cigar, but over priced in my opinion.  I enjoyed that one while watching my pork butt along with a Jameson 18 year old Irish whiskey.

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!

    Well fine!  I know what not to get you for the next lump delivery payment ;)

    Try the #1 and let me know what you think.

    Only problem with that one is the name is too d@mn long.  




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

    Picked up few a Flor de las Antillas today on the recommendation of a friend and cigar aficionado 
    I picked up one of these about a month ago but haven't tried it yet.  Been "collecting" and smoking for quite a while.  Here's a shot of the collection from a couple month ago. That's a 120 quart cooler, probably 200+ cigars in there, mix of singles, 5-packs, boxes...:

    Last one was a 1503 Ruby.  Not bad.

    Big fan of the Punch Rare Corrojo - 

    It is counterintuitive but the petit corona has a better flavor than the robusto

    I love that punch also

    I'm new to the cigar world.  I smoked my first last year while in Belize to fulfill the lyrics of a Jerry Jeff Walker song, now I'm hooked.  I really dig CAO Black but just ordered a 5 pack of the Flor de las Antillas because of this thread.

    Between egging, shooting clays, boating and now cigars I don't have much time to work!

    @Hokie_Smoker

    Glad I could pass on a good cigar to someone new to the pleasure. I believe egging, drinking bourbon, and smoking cigars all go perfectly together.

    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 buy local when I can. If I can't find it local my first stop is cigar international.

    I also like sjcigars.com. It's a little shop up in Philly that has pretty good prices and a house brand that I really enjoy. They sell them by the bundle for like $2 bucks a stick and make great sticks for your friends to smoke that won't know the difference as well as a good stick for the golf course since if it gets screwed up you didn't spend that much on it.

    Cigar international runs sampler deals all the time where you can buy a sampler of several cigars and get a humidor with it if you're new and need one. Spend over $50 and get free shipping.
