Anyone here into cigars?

I'm not talking about Phillies Blunts guys.. I'm talking about fine hand rolled cigars (and I refuse to buy the ones sold at the Rock by those annoying people.. why would I buy your no name cigar when I could get a well aged brand name cigar for the same price?)

I just got a small humidor to hold mine.. I used to buy and smoke them one at a time but I've decided to buy some and age them a little..

Just wanted to know if anyone else out there likes to enjoy a cigar from time to time

I don't mind a King Edward from time to time. Did you know that Ken Daneyko likes a good cigar ? he says there's a good cigar store in Hoboken where he gets his from.

I'll have to look into that.. Google says there's more than one in Hoboken... Thanks for being my only responder :unsure:;)

I'm sure Kenny smokes something like a Padron type cigar for $20 bucks a pop..

My personal favorite brand is Gurkha.. They just make a smooth and flavorful cigar great for hanging out with.. But my favorite "everyday smoke" is Romeo y Julieta

I recommend going to JR Cigar in Whippany, NJ if you can.. their showroom is a giant walk-in humidor like 150 ft by 80 ft.. It's a sick place man and the pricing is decent

That might be a problem for me Colin, I live in Texas :doh1: However, If I have time I'll drop in when I eventually come up to NJ to see a game at the rock.

I used to smoke (from time to time) little cheroots called Hamlet, but that was when I lived in England, they are in packs of 5. If you were in a bar you could buy singles to go along with your fav tipple :)

Do they do that at the bars in Ireland? I'm hoping to study abroad there.. Ha wow Texas, well maybe JR has a store by you?

Sweet stuff

I only smoke from time to time due to the expense but when I do I love taking advantage of the deals at JR. That place is friggen sick! I normally take advantage of whatever the cigar of the week is, but the brands I tend to buy are Don Diego, H. Upmann, and Montecristo (I love this brand, especially the Afrique) . Romeo Y Julieta are great as well, in fact my two smoking buddies love this brand the best, I definitely go for Montecristo's everytime though. I also love to smoke Al Capone's (Rum Dipped) but those tend to be cheaper at local stores like Walgreen's than JR, although JR has some other awesome cigarillo brands.

What do they sell at the rock, its Jimenez right? I've had a couple and from what I remember I thought they were decent cigars, but to be honest I tend to not be that picky. I also don't mind the people selling them, some of those women look great.

Normally in the summer or over winter break when my friends come back from college is when we tend to smoke, but since I have been away for most of this summer and won't be back in Jersey till mid August I haven't smoked in forever. Definitely going to make a trip there just before everyone leaves again.

Montecristo and Don Diego are great brands.. I'm actually going to JR in a few hours!! I like cigars dipped in various liquors because of the extra flavor although some people get offended by that and think it ruins the cigar.. Sweet man thanks!

I love cigars. If you want to try a great cigar try the Macanudo Vintage 97. I have had trouble finding them recently but they go for about $15 a piece. Best cigar I have had. Better than some of the cubans I have had.

That's a hefty price but I'm a sucker for a good smoke.. I'll add it to the list of cigars I need to buy :boogie:

Right now I'm sitting on my porch smoking a Rocky Patel Edge Corojo Toro, drinking some hard lemonade, listening to some relaxing music, and just enjoying this perfect weather.. It's absolutely the life

And the cigar is delicious.. I actually got it free too from cigarfox.com -- if you buy 2 or more "build-your-own" samplers you get a free Rocky Patel Toro Sampler box.. I highly recommend it

Ha-ha, well that someone isn't me! They are my father-in-law's favorite. Whenever he's in town, a few times a year, we'll sit and smoke one after dinner with a little port wine.

A buddy of mine is also into cigars. Next time I see him, I'll ask him what he prefers.

The only time I smoked cigars is when I had the opportunity to smoke a Cuban in the British Virgin Islands.

It's nothing I'd do, but at least I had the experience.

The only things I've ever smoke in my life were a Cuban cigar in the islands, and a Strawberry Philly. Haha so I can safely say the Cuban was better. But I am in no way qualified to make statements on the quality of cigars. Nor wil I ever touch one again, personal reasons.

Understandable.. well lucky you for trying that one Cuban.. Unfortunately, I'm going to the US Virgin Islands so I won't be able to get Cubans there
