OK, top 3 favorite cigars (Ed will probably say Te Amo for all 3):

1) Romeo y Julietta Tubos #1 Cuban
2) Cohiba Black Label Churchill
3) Trinidad Fundadores

You have to have smoked at least 2 to be able to list it.
Next we can do single malt scotch.

I bought a Cuban down in Palomas, Mexico a couple of years ago and stuck it in my pocket and walked back across the border with it!!  Heh heh......When I got to the truck I tore it open and puffed on it.......but what the hell do I know?,  it just tasted like a cigar to me......I don't even smoke cigars!!    Roll%20on%20Floor%20Laughing

Kickboxer ever tried the #4's  Romeo y julietta?
 
I have a number of German engineers that bring them in when here on business.  I think you can bring them in for personnel use,  and if they happen to give me one or two.... or a box.   LOL

The Cohibas aren't bad either.

Padron 1964 Anniversary is the best cigar I ever smoked.

I agree with Mike, Romeo y Julieta cigars are GREAT!
Never had a bad one.
 
Third, La Gloria Cubana. Smoked them for on and off for a few years.
 
I'm a "budget" cigar smoker.
I chain smoke them when I have them, so I buy whats on sale OR free from buds.........Peeker

I love a good cigar with a a glass  of wine .  9-point .... ya mean you don't want any of those hand dipped clinton tasters ???  An aide in the white house told me Bubba  and Arafat smoked em in the Rose Garden .... no wonder Arafat died .... huh ? Cyborg ... I like the strawberry flavor ..... LOL

Yes, I have...love the RyJ's. I like the Cuban Cohibas, but they are not all they are advertised to be. There are certainly cigars, Honduran and Nicaraguan, that are as good if not better.

My small humidor...notice the Texas Star, made from maple recovered from a shipwreck in Lake Erie, over 400 years old.



One end of the walk-in in the house I am building. About 500cubic feet of storage.
I had the table model built, my wife and I built the walk-in from cedar harvested from my land.

Much better, I should do that...just didn't think of it.

Still have not completed the walk-in (nor a whole lot of the house). The project that never ends.
My "goal" is to die with more Cuban cigars than Winston Churchill had at his death... reportedly over 4000.

Thank you... glad ya'll like it.

Excellent choices...not many people know the Florida brands. If you notice in the bottom right of the walk-in picture is a box of RyJ Vintage IV.

 KICKBOXER !  Man that's wild .... a man of many talents ... huh ?  Exceptional piece . I'll bet eyes bug when you open that baby up when guests come over ! Did you ever get to the Keys ... I bought a few hand rolled there .... asked the girl if she'd roll a few between her thighs .... LOL  You should have seen the line to get them ... a tanned cuban girl in a thong doin them ... if you bought her cigars ... she'd sit on your lap for a picture .... they could have tasted like crap ... no one cared . But they were darn good . Wife got p*ssed ... but who cares . Going down for the Fantasy Fest this year ... already got my invitation ... sister in law lives there. The women only wear paint .... no chlothes ! Of course I'm only going for the cigars ...... Wink

Steel, Thank you.. I am more a collector than smoker.

Merc, I haven't been to the Keys in a long time. I have smoked a few of the "freshly rolled", but they are actually supposed to age for at least 3 months after rolling to let the tobaccos blend. However, freshly rolled on tanned thighs...would HAVE to try that.
Fantasy Fest sounds like a real kick. Only paint... interesting concept.

Did'nt get any green and purple growths after smoking it .... worried later .... that is the most top end case/humidor I've ever seen .... or would you call it a vault . I'm far from any kind of expert ... LOL
