Little tid bit, Acid broke off of Lars Teten. The guy who owns Acid was co-owner of Lars, and they had a disagreement and so he split. It was a hairy deal and included a lawsuit cause the Acid guy took multiple rollers and recipes with him. Fun stuff.
I think Lars has the better of the two. I love my El Chulo Sexy Box :)

www.cigarasylum.com is probably the most thorough cigar forum on the net.

I will refrain from discussing my cigar preferences due to OPEC (gov't) and some forums don't like the mention of products shipped from an island about 90 miles south of Miami. But they are good stuff.

LOL, I'm low on Cubans I need to get some more. I have 3 left from my world wide travels and gifts from associates.

Cubans are good, but I've had some dominicans that destroy cubans, not to mention some of the cigars from the Canary Islands.

Don't know about destroy, but there are some damn good domestics. Tats for one. Doms just have turned into such a "see who can make the strongest cigar" thing, that it has lost a lot of focus to the more subtle flavors. Cubans with age are tough to beat, and when I can find cigars from the 70's/80's and forward there are some amazing things there.

The thing most people don't realize is that the prices compared to a handmade domestic (not the drugstore sticks), is comparable or cheaper, because of the taxes in most states.

Absolutely. I have a couple Cubans from and mid 90's hanging out in my humidor. You are totally right about Doms...They seem to be trying to compete with the Nic, and Ecu kick your ass with over powered stogies. What made the doms so good was that subtle hints and such. When I smoke a cigar I dont' want my ass kicked, I want some nice flavor and relaxation.

If you want a great affordable cigar, try the Leon Ninos from La Aurora. Very affordable and tasty.

Haven't really been into Dominicans for a while now. I prefer Nicaraguan tobacco as far as non-cubans is concerned, particularly those produced by Don Pepin Garcia.

Let someone call me a pussy to my face for smoking an Acid cigar. :lol: I like 'em. Definitely not everyone's cup of tea, but they do it for my taste buds.

I've been enjoying Nubs during rounds. And have been getting a great deal on the variety sample packs of 6 for $25! The box pressed Cameroons have been very tasty. A little kush, a can of cinnamon dulce and a Cameroon = delighted taste buds :mrgreen:

They also just put out Maduro Nubs, waiting to try them.

I'm a few weeks from my 10th wedding anniversary. I've probably smoked five cigars during that time. Before that I was a Cigar aficionado wannabe. I used to like a brand called Montesino. It was made by Arturo Fuente but it was cheaper. I'm all about cheap. Montesino Diplomaticos, I think that was the smoke. I used to smoke the maduros to try to fit in with my Cigar-snob friends, but I liked the lighter smoke of the naturals. I also used to smoke a cigar from Fonseca, the 7-9-9. I have no idea what 7-9-9 means, but it sounds good. There was another Fonseca cigar, the Triangulares or something like that. It was expensive for the cigars I smoked, but I used to spring for them becasue it seemed to impress my Cigar-snob friends.

I have a big pile of rings from back in the day...El Ray Del Mundo, Arturo Fuente, Punch, Hoyo De Monterrey, The Griffin's, Don Tomas, Nat Sherman, H. Upmann. Some I don't remember. Evelio? Casa De Nicaragua? Free Cuba? Evidently I was also fond of a sweet smoke called Baccarat that I remember being cheap and the ash flying everywhere...kind of the Cigar-snob approved Swisher Sweets. :P

Anyway, now I wish I had a cigar. Thanks.
