1. I have started the new week 1 FerrariChat Update poll, please vote... http://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/threads/ferrarichat-com-update-week-1-poll.560487/
  1. Just checking to see if we have any Cigar guys here at good ol F-chat. Anyway, I had a nice Ashton Churchill today as well as a nice Monte Cristo white robusto. Both were great, very smooth, creamy, and nutty. The Ashton was a tad more spicy then the White, but it was still great. I did smoke them one after another so my palette was probably not the cleanest. I should probably refrain from doing that - is there any sort of rule in cigar smoking that recommends you do not smoke cigars back to back?

    Rules Smules, do what you feel. However yes im guessing that they recommend you rince you mouth with water or something in between cigars.

    Personally Cohiba's are by far my favorites! I love them. A little to expencive for me but I just can't help myself, they are so nice. They are a very nice cigar to have with a scotch

    Last night I smoked a Partagas Series D No. 4 followed by a Partagas Series D No. 4.

    I've had a Partagas, followed by a RJ Vintage, followed by a Lone Wolf Lobo Rojo.

    mmmm, I want another one...

    Search would work for you.


    Oh and having a nice La Gloria Cubana as I type!
     
  6. Ah nice, glad we have cigar guys here. Most other forums I have tried posting on have had very few cigar smokers if any. Sorry about not searching before. I usually don't care for reviving old threads as some people have issues with that.

    Anyway, good to know that back to back smoking is "ok". I really enjoyed the Monte Cristo. I can't stop rambling about how smooth and creamy it was; definitely one of the better mild cigars out there.

    Noah has good taste in cigars.

    My personal favorite - a fat diamond crown. Never experienced such *consistent* quality as I have with them, without going to a hugely expensive cigar. Smooth, consistent, a quality smoke.

    I just finished my box of Partagas Series D No.4. I have no idea what I'm gonna do for a couple of days!! I will have to make due with the RJs and the Padrons.
     

  12. I had a CAO Brazilia - it was actually pretty good. Very different, nothing like what I would have expected. It was very nutty, but also had a creamy side to it at first. I'd definetly would like to try one again.

    I like the thick smoke of a Punch, always a favorite for me. Onyx are good as well if you like 'em maduro. I normally don't smoke one after the other but there's nothing wrong with that. After a few draws on the new cigar I don't think the previous one will affect the palate ;)

    Irish whisky, scotch or port wine are my favorites to go with a cigar. A strong coffee sometimes in the morning if I'm outside smoking w/da boss -- glad I introduced him to cigars...now he's hooked! :D

    As it was said above, smoke 'em if ya got 'em!

    Ashton VSG. Getting hard to find though.
     
  27. The Ashton VSG is a very full bodied Cigar. I am a novice smoker so I do not yet really enjoy very strong cigars. I typically lean more towards the more mild and medium bodied smokes. I have also been meaning to ask; are full bodied cigars usally smoked after a proper dinner and/or with spirits?

    I smoke the enchantments. They're not that strong really. I'm a very picky cigar smoker, and these things taste incredible. They don't "stink" either. My wife likes them, amazingly enough.

    Usually have one with a glass of Bacardi white and coke. Goes great together.

    ha, I just noticed that the picture I took is the actually size of the cigars. You could hold one up and it would be the same size.
     
  39. I have been meaning to try some real Cuban Cohibas lately. I hear the Siglio line is great. Does anyone have any pointers on which Siglio version to get? I, II, III, IV ?

    Also, is absolutecigarss.com a good resource for shipping cubans to the US?

  45. I actually found the link here in a thread on F-chat. I have no personal experiene with absolutecigars. I guess they are authentic, but the prices are pretty cheap. From what i've read online they are the real deal.

    Beware of Cheap cubans......
     
  47. These aren't really cheap. $295 for a sampler of Cohiba Siglio's isn't really cheap. You get 3 of each of the Siglio's. I, II, III, and IV. Some here on the forums recommend Absolutecigars.com. They seem pretty decent and guarntee delivery.

    From what I've learned, Cuban Cigars NEVER come cheap. But, they are worth the price.
