I am fond of CAO, Punch, and Romeo y Julieta. I like Maduro wrappers, but I also enjoy a mild blond Jamaican wrapper.

The new CAO "Sopranos" cigar is actually really good. Spicy, and a little heavy, but really smooth.

How about it? Do you have a favorite?

Testing. One. Two. Three.

Is this thing on...?

50-some-odd guys and nobody has an opinion?

Have I freaked everyone out by mentioning tobacco?

If I've offended anyone, I sincerely apologize.

Grace,

Agree. I love Maduro wrapper. Most of the taste is in the rapper, but can be influenced by the shape and size.

Size: I like a Robusto or Churchill - large diameter - better flavor.

Try Hoya De Monterrey #1 - it comes in Conn and Maduro. Also Corona.

I'm more of a pipe man myself, though I haven't availed myself of its charms in a couple of years now. Thus, no real comments on cigars!

As they say, close but no cigar...(sorry, I couldn't resist it...)

Mentat -

Thanks for the suggestion about the Hoya de Monterrey. I'll look for it next week.

Sam -

Pipes are great, too. My brother-in-law smokes one. He uses a very mild, sweet tobacco - Captain Black, I think.


Had a Padron last week - very nice. Medium to heavy, but very smooth.

It's amazing how much of a difference it makes getting a cigar that's been stored in the proper humidity. Much better flavor and slower burn.:thumb

I had my first cigar at age 8......
After discovering how to remove a lung with out surgery, I chose to abstain from tobacco.

Still, there was this train shop in Gettysburg PA. Mr Gilbert smoked a pipe and used cherry tobacco. I loved the scent.

Depends - Plan on $4 to $8 per cigar when bought by the box. $5 and up for individual cigar. If you don't have a humidor, don't buy a box.

CAO Gold is the perfect answer to your cigar needs, if you are looking to start with a classic cigar blend. This cigar is currently one of the best-selling brands in the country. It is a perfectly mild, Nicaraguan cigar that features a creamy smoke that simply swirls in your mouth. The line has two different sizes that were recently rated 90+ (outstanding).

I like Arturo Fuente and Partagas. Nothing like a good cigar after a day of hunting or fishing. Last time I went hunting one of the guys with us handed out some expensive cigars. Wish I could remember the name of it because it was most enjoyable.
