    What

    So it seems as if half the old guys stepping up to the line these days have a stogie in their mouth, and I'm sure you guys are no exception. So as someone relatively new to the whole cigar thing, I'm just looking for some insight! I definitely prefer a medium-full bodied cigar, and as of right now I'd have to say that my favorite is by Drew Estate, the Liga Privada No. 9. I have heard good things about Kristoffs but have not been able to try one yet. So what's your favorite?

    The Liga 9 is a great cigar. I enjoy a Padron 1964 Exclusivo if price is no object. Otherwise, the Ramon Allones Special Selection is a great cigar for $5!!

    LaGloria Wavell or "cheap bastard" torpedo. Goes good with a little Yukon Jack.

    I like the cubans but my favorite all time are the Padron 1964 anniversario's. The Exclusivo is great but all of the 1964s are good. I also like the Don Carlos line and I prefer torpedos when ever I smoke a cigar ( which is not often anymore) The Padron will set you back $15 +++ but worth every penney. Now Trappy if you are man enough to smoke cubans, get ready to send me $20 each plus shipping

    What

    In the early 80's I used to smoke two boxes of Macanudo's a week- I kinda remember the name Lonsdale or something similar to that. But, when I was told I had an asbestos exposure I quit. My Dr. said, tobacco is the primer & asbestos is the powder. Combine the two & you WILL get lung cancer. If I make it to 75, I'll start going after good cigars again. After 75 I'm not cutting my shooting career too short.

    I'm a cheap SOB and don't like paying too much for my cigars.

    So after trying a few zillion different brands, I stick with (2) of my favorites.

    Hoyo De Monterrey Excalibur #1 or Cinco Vegas Gold #1. Just outstandingly mellow and last for about 1 1/2 hours each.

    They're about $3.75 a piece on Cigars International's website.

    Don't start---------Dummy. The reason all those old guys (me included) smoke stoogies is because Camels, Kools, and all the rest of the "fags" are no longer acceptable, even at a gun club. I've done both and it's hard to quit after many years of puffing that crap in other peoples faces. It used to be OK-------NO LONGER.

    What's amazing is hearing an 18 year old asking wh at's your favorite cigar. It reminds of an incident I witnessed when I was in the navy in Charleston,SC. In the old days Charleston was a WIDE open town. Well ,outside the main gate of the navy base there was a multitude of beer joints know as the "strip". At one of these renown places there was a sweetheart know aS "DIRTY DEB". after hearing a hot running seaman deuce (E-2) running his mouth, Dirty Deb, who had enough said, "shut your mouth sunny, the NAVY has more time in me, than you have in the NAVY."

    Kim, I agree but in my case the wife loves a good cigar ( just like me, only on occassion) so she is not offended. We have a friday night date night about once a month, thats where we sit on the deck, smoke a good cigar and sip good scotch and tell each other everything
