Since there's a fucking vape thread (lol Tyler) I figured I'd start a cigar thread for those of us who don't like the penis :ROFLMAO:

I'm not stuck on any one stick, but my definite go-to is the Warfighter Tobacco 5.56 Field Toro.

Smoke 'em if you got 'em.

Camacho Triple Maduros and Rocky Patel Edge Battalions are my faves, but not always in the humidor.

I dig it. Maduros aren't my thing but I burn one every now and then. If it's a Warfighter, Rocky Patel or Drew Estate stick, I usually dig it. I get shit for it, but that includes the Acid line every now and then.

My everyday smokes that I rotate through:
- Warfighter 5.56 Field Toro
- San Cristobal Original Toro
- Rocky Patel Java Maduro or Mint Toro
- Rocky Patel Prohibition Connecticut Broadleaf Toro
- Acid Blondie Belicoso
- Undercrown Shade Belicoso
- Tabak Especial Toro

The "better" smokes I still enjoy regularly:
- Liga Privada No. 9 Parejo Toro
- Padron Damaso Toro
- Rocky Patel The Edge Connecticut Torpedo
- Pappy Van Winkle Tradition Robusto Grande
- My Father Connecticut Toro
- Warfighter 5.56 Garrison Toro
- Warfighter Victory Gran Toro

Those are just the ones off the top of my head. I find myself downright craving the San Cristobal and Java lines if I haven't had one in a while... I think they lace them with crack.

I don't smoke enough to have real heavy favorites - I know the couple I like, though. I just ordered a handful of 5 packs from cigar.com that will last me well into the fall, maybe longer. I may walk down your list and see what's what.

No shame in that. I burn about 3 sticks a week on average, and like any of the finer things in life, your tastes and preferences start to develop with experience. You'll notice probably 85% of those on my list are pretty similar to one another, mainly Toros with Connecticut wrappers and Nicaraguan binders and fillers. It's just what I like. You start developing patterns and when you do you'll have a better idea what to stock up on and give you direction on what to try next.

my humidor dried out :(

I used to smoke 2-3 times a week. manly maduro and darker cigars but not always
my favorite were illusion mj12s, AVO xo's

when I smoke now I always search for the AVOs.

also got a decent pipe collection. picked a few up in Europe from the manufactures directly. holding on to them as keepsakes until I get the urge to test em out

forgot to mention in my cigar smoking days I managed to score tickets to ICPCR in Orlando. I didn't thing id ever get the smell out, it was amazing

Buy this, live happily:


The "sponges" last about 6 months. When they're "fresh" I only have to refill my humidor once every 2 weeks, and that's here where it's hot and dry as fuck. Well worth the investment, especially if you are constantly in and out of the humidor.

I was using sponges and hum sticks. problem was the moves and multiple seasons. between summer a/c and winter heater it was a real struggle.

time to reset and start over. at one point I actually had 3 humidors and over 300 cigars. I ended up giving them away. down to less than 125 currently.

I tend to only keep 20-60 at a time in my humidor which has a capacity of 100. Seems to be the perfect amount for me. There are three major cigar warehouses and two high-end cigar bars within 20 minutes of my house, so it's not like I need to stock up. And I don't age mine or anything, I prefer them fresh and a tad on the damp side for slower, cooler burns.

I’ve been happy with these. Auto ships every 8 weeks. 4 75% packs keep the humidor between 69-72 with infrequent opening.
