Anyone here smoke Cigars?

I used to smoke Cuban cigars all the time.
I have a good contact for Cuban cigars but the delivery time is about 2 weeks.
I'm looking for a new local shop to purchase from but I don't want to get ripped off (i.e. downing street pub)

If anyone has any ideas... let's hear m

I always see them sold as 'pre-embargo' cigars.. Surely they would have run out by now.. lol

Not pre-embargo.
These are from counties that do not have embargos with Cuba.

BTW... This embargo is retarded

Ok... I've smoked a few different cigars in my time but in no way am I a connisour... however I can say this... THE VERY BEST cigar you will ever smoke, is a "Kuba Kuba" by "Acid" they are a division of "Drew Estates" and the cigar can be bought for around six bucks at specs.

Hear me now believe me later, there is no cigar in the world that can compare to this one.

^ I would like to disagree
The cuban Cohiba Siglo VI is AWESOME

For domestic cigars the Ashton VSG, or Padron Aniversary 1926 Maduro is :yum:

If you haven't tried one then you can't bad mouth them yet :P


Cohibas are good though... don't get me wrong, but smoking one of those Kuba Kubas is like smoking candy, it stays cool and has flavor all the way down to the nub

What's the diff? What do they taste like? Can you 'splain it to a non-smoker who has never smoked anything in his life?

Been there for a HERF (cigar smoking event) they had some awesome rollers in house.

As for explaining the diffrence in Cuban flavor / Non-Cuban
I cannot put it into words really. They have a twang all to their own.
Depending on the cigar, you can pull many flavors out from woodsy type flavors to light coco tastes.

Maybe I'll bust a few out next time we hook up

Depends on the cigar.
Generally the boxes come in 25 per
The price can range from just over 100.00 to well over 600.00 USD
There are a few websites I can point you guys to if interested in browsing
