Here is an interesting question... What got you to start smoking cigars? I started because I got married, I will elaborate... The wife doesn't like the smell which means alone time 😉. "ok hun I'll get to that when I'm done smoking this stogie" which means 30-45 min delay. LoL. Still married going on 15 years thanks for the advise gramps.

The Cubans used to be the **** for cigars. Unfortunately, communism ruined the industry and most of the good makers fled to the Dominican Republc (Reagan did good freeing that place). The Dominicans are becoming the standard to follow because all of the good makers are there.

I started out when I was night-fishing...bugs were bad, buddy handed me a Philly (yeah yeah, I know LOL), and it worked. Eventually realized that there had to be something better...tried an Ashton Connecticut Churchill, and the rest was history. My wife actually enjoys my cigars...buys them for me sometimes...plays poker in my cave with the guys while a few of us enjoy cigars.

For my money, I definitely prefer Nicaraguan tobacco over Dominican any day. There's still some outstanding Cuban smokes...but it's not a given that it's a great smoke just cuz it's Cuban.

From yesterday, forgot to post it here-

Quote:
I finally got a chance to try another of the CAO's and i went with the MX2.... I was very disappointed with the construction of it. Towards the foot there were several soft spots and 'holes' in the filler, the middle of the body was ok and then towards the head was the opposite of the foot it was packed tight! The wrapper had several thick veins in it that i though was surprising after enjoying the Black.

I cut the cap off and lit it with a match and tried to draw... the head was too tightly packed to get much of a draw at all...i fiddled with the MX2 and rolled the third at the head end between my fingers to try and loosen it (i was out and about so i couldn't look it up to see if there was a proper way to do so) by the time i could get a decent draw i had to relight.

The burn was not even and the center didnt seem to burn much at all at the half centimeter by the foot and then the last couple of inches. The taste was meh at best the first half but then got better as i got into0 the second. I dont know if i just got a dud or what but i was NOT impressed at all by the MX2 which seems odd after reading several great reviews about it

The cigar had been in my coolidor (averages 66-67% humidity and 68-71 degrees) since Nov. 21 and i had pulled it out about 45 min before i smoked it.

How many cigars we talking about and how long did it go this low? You might be able to bring them back to life, but Cigars lose alot of essential oils when they go without the proper temps and humidity. If you are talking about a whole humidor full it may be worth it to try and salvage them. If it is just a few sticks, I would count your loses and start over.

Well I am of Cuban descent so I guess it is in my blood, but actually I watched my Grandfather smoke Cigars my entire life till he passed away recenty. If he wasnt smoking one he was chewing one or had one in his front shirt pocket. I was never really interested untill he gave me one when my 1st son was born 6yrs ago, been smoking them since.

The wife doesnt really mind, as a matter of fact she likes the smell of them and like CRider actually will go to the local cigar shop and surprise me with a few sticks from time to time.

About a month. I have a couple that you can't get in the states. 7 or 8 total.

I'd give it a shot...you wanna bring the humidity up slowly, real slowly. Worst case scenario, they're too far gone...but it's likely worth the effort to try IMO.

Arturo Fuentes, Romeo y Julietta, Macanudo, and of course REAL Cubans. Macanudo used to make Lady Claibourne, but I can't find them anymore. They were cool, too.

I favor Kuba Acids. But I'm a younger guy and that cigar has a younger person flavor if that makes sence. But I always light my cigars with a wooden match.

I'm screwed then, I just shoved a couple humidity packs and wiped the drawers with a wet rag.
