  1. I smoked cigarettes in college. Walking through my college town one day I walked past a cigar store and thought...one doesn’t inhale, must be healthier. I bought a macanudo and couldn’t taste a thing. That was my first. The years passed, got married, bought a house and quit smoking, preparing to start a family. We had the kids and I consciously stayed away from cigars, thinking I’d pick up cigarettes again. The kids grew up and moved on and we bought a weekend house in the mountains. At our fire pit one night my neighbor fired up a Rocky Patel something and I was tempted. Smoking cigarettes was 25 years behind me at this point. My friend offered me one and I decided to try it. That was it, I was hooked. I was not good at sitting still and relaxing. Smoking a cigar made me do both of those things, and... I fell down the rabbit hole. I started with 100% NC. I tried a bunch and was really never satisfied. I did lots of research, found a website and started experimenting with CC. I totally preferred the nuance of these cigars over the one note flavors my palette found with NC cigars. I bought a desktop humidor and filled it. Bigger coolers and wine coolers followed, all eventually filled. I found FOH and Bob Staebel and ordered a big cooled humidor. I’ve made the pilgrimage to Cuba twice so far. i now smoke 100% Cc’s and FOH gets a big chunk of my cigar dollars
  2. I recently received a box of PE2 seconds (cracked feet) from our host. Great price, can’t find the cracks. The feet burn first anyway, I wouldn’t worry about it.
  3. No go for me as I am on a low carb diet. One if these has a lot of carbs, one has less, I can't remember which is which. A real burger (sans roll) has zero carbs. I'd give it a try if I could.
  4. Everyone is different. I try to be humble.... that, and my lovely wife would not be happy if she could see inside the dark recesses of my humidor. :+)
  5. Sharing ones cigar collection on a public forum is probably not a great idea. I know I’d never do it. No good can come from this in my opinion. Edited to add: I should have said ....probably not a great idea for me.
  6. I rediscovered an unopened box of PL Encantos recently. They were buried and I forgot I had them. Woo!
  7. I love mine. I use these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LNJ89T0/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  8. A word of advice based on my experience...give yourself enough time to wait in line if you are exchanging CUC's on your way out. When I arrived there were 20 people in line at the one window that was open. I ended up having to save my CUC's for next time. There was a 'VIP' window open with no line but they wouldn't let me use it.
  9. I use cigar tubes inside the Peter James case. 6 will fit.
  10. A cab of PLPC and 2 boxes of RAAS for me.
