    Since the beer thread has been so popular, I thought I would see what the cigar smokers out there enjoy (go ahead, dust off the old Monica jokes). The anti smoking laws have put a damper lighting up, but when I do I enjoy the Montecristo No. 2 torpedos and the Onyx reserves. I have had a couple of cuban montecristos and Romeo&Julietas that were great as well. Any cigar smokers out there?

    I smoke full-flavored Dorals. I only smoke cigars whenever all the tobacco has been removed and replaced with a foreign substance.

    Fuente OPUS X I prefer this to any Cuban I've ever had. Nice bold taste and no bite. For a lighter smoke, I like the Don Tomas Special or several other type of Fuentes.

    I have heard these are great cigars. Aren't they almost impossible to get?

    Only a Mets fans would call the best cigar on the planet a Kohiba...when it is a Cohiba Jamacian Presidente Double Corona!!

    I like a good Arturo Fuente Churchill


    Romeo and Julietta Robusto


    and some hand rolled Mexicans that you can get in any of their tourist destinations!!

    Nothing like a dark La Gloria Cubana in the right condition. It bugs me to no end when you find a shop with a big humidor and all the stogies are stale. One such place is Village Cigars. The best, if I remember the name correclty, is the Cigar Barn in Coney Island(or the next town east) around ave U. Moist as can be. A. Fuente, Ashton and Onyx are great, too.

    Going to New Orleans in a few weeks for the La Derby. There's this shop on Decatur Street where they twist up the cuban seed right there. Dos Jefe's Cigar Bar is also on the agenda.

    Yes, they&#39;re pretty rare and thery go very fast. When they are available, some stores only let you get 2 at a time. My store here in Florida always puts about 7-10 away for me when she gets them. They come in about 3-4 times a year. Well worth the wait&#33;&#33;&#33;
