RE: Let's talk cigars
Never heard of chinchalero, but I'll check it out.

I had two more montecristo no. 2 but gave them as gifts --- while I was smoking a decent dominican, a friend let me have a quick taste again of the #2 and it did in fact remind me of why they truly are special.

For a really long, buzzed smoke with fine flavor, try a Partagas Lusitania.

As someone said above, a good starter would be a mild Davidoff, indeed.

Get your passport ready!

RE: Let's talk cigars
I have an opportunity to buy this:

Quote:Cohiba Club Limited Edition Humidor (3 4/5" x 22)
BACK IN STOCK
The king of the Cuban Clubs is back in another limited edition humidor. Featuring the classic Cohiba flavours bundled in a 15-20 minute smoke, with just enough sweetness mixed with the quintessential grassy Cohiba profile.

They're asking for AUD$199 (says 50 cigarrillos inside), worth it?

Another interesting one (flavoured though)

Quote:Tabak Especial Cafecita Negra (4" x 32)
BACK IN STOCK
By carefully infusing Esteli-grown long-leaf tobaccos with the robust nuances of Nicaragua’s finest coffee beans the Tabak Especial cafecita produces a rich tobacco core layered with savoury espresso notes and a touch of milk chocolate, all perfectly balanced by a sweet velvety after taste on the palate. Perfect with your morning coffee or your afternoon coffee and even your after dinner espresso.

AUD$59 per tin of 10 cigars.

I'm not of much help when it comes to Cigarillos as my sampling of them is miniscule, still, for a 10-15 minute smoke, they're ok. Personally I think that they lack the full flavours and body of regular cigars, but that's just me. At least with Cohiba, you know that the quality is top notch.

Thanks for the recommendation, I'll keep it in mind next time I'm in the market for cigars.

I think that for those looking to start cigar smoking or to expand their range, go with a sampler pack or head down to your nearest cigar lounge and have a chat with the owner about what you're looking for.

Here are some examples of what you can get in a sampler pack and how much it costs:

Yesterday, as the sun was out and the weather was nice, I lit up a Romeo y Juliet No.1. It was a great smoke. There was a hint of sweetness throughout the cigar along with a strong spicy flavour. It was great, definitely recommended.

RE: Let's talk cigars
Gonna bump this again. Too good of a thread to not contribute to.

My start with cigars was one of envy I suppose. I used to watch some cigar review videos because of the amazing notes that the reviewer could derive from the cigars.

I was always interested in the flavors of coffees, I drink my coffee black from a French press, or a Bialetti Italian Espresso machine, or a Turkish Ibrik. So I always loved trying to pick up flavors in the coffee, I would always pick up chocolate, caramel, nutty, and(now I know to be) tobacco notes. These notes are common in South American coffees, of which I much prefer over the more fruity African coffees. It was so much fun to see the differences from coffee to coffee.

Naturally as my palette progressed I explored into other routes of flavor enjoyment. Vapes being the next stage. I enjoyed this for a while, but as I continued to use it I started to realize how these vape flavors were synthetic, they lacked natural flavors and complexity which is what always amazed me about cigars. The manufactures needed to have so much skill in order to formulate a cigar that has such complex flavors. So I finally dove into the deep end and headed into my local cigar shop and picked up an Ashton Premium house selection. It was a mild cigar that I enjoyed very much however I got cigar sickness with this. But I wasn't so quick to give it up. So I headed back to the shop and picked up a Cusano M1. It was bland, and terrible. I started to get to thinking, maybe if I like my coffee full bodied, then maybe I'd like my cigar full bodied. So I picked up a Perdomo Habano in Churchill that I enjoyed very much. After that I picked up a AJ Fernandez La Gran Llave which I also enjoyed very much. These both had Maduro wrappers and we're more chocolatey and nutty in flavors, much like the coffees I enjoy most.

I only smoke once or twice a month, I think I am gonna pick up one tomorrow to have. If I do, maybe I'll post a little review.

Just realized how long this post is. Eh, I'm dumping it anyway.

Tengen, I wouldn't pay the Cuban premium for cigarillos. I'll smoke one accoassionally, but they don't last long and smoke hotter because of the narrow diameter.

The others are maduro I suspect. That is an acquired taste. If you haven't smoked maduros before, buy just one.

Thanks, I find that I really don't smoke often enough to justify buying a whole pack of 50 anyway, so I'll probably pass this time. Good photos and copy writing got me excited though.

Doesn't say that they ship to the US, sorry.

Introducing a friend to Cigars this week. Picked him up a Perdomo Small Batch 2005. For myself I picked up a Rocky Patel Vintage 1992. Gonna be a fun night shooting the shit and smoking some good cigars.
