Hello from Tucson, Arizona, USA

Recommended Posts

Greetings fellow enthusiasts! As a SOTL I've been enjoying cigars of all kinds for almost 10 years in the SW desert. I'm a huge nerd for cigar literature and love ot geek out about blends, brands and lines from all over the world. Logistics being what they are, I most often enjoy AMS but like to treat myself with the real deal every special occasion or so. I look forward to chatting with and connecting to new BOTL/SOTLs here!

What is AMS?

My latest literature score was Jose O. Padron's "Memorable Moments In My Life - The Story of an American Dream". It is a heavy hardback and I've not gotten all the way through it but I'm digging the intimate story telling. 

AMS (American Market Selection) is just a short hand way for me to talk about candela/double claro or green wrappers. There something about the profile that I really dig. I wish I could get others to join with me on my bandwagon, but I understand how many are set in their ways already.

Had to google this--seems like a term that was used in the 1950's-'70's--and seldom used these days. Apparently these types were preferred in America pre-revolution. Not sure if nowadays you can only get something like that from countries other than Cuba, however.
