I started enjoying cigars sometime last year, and try to have 1 or 2 per week. I try not to light one up when the kids are outside, or if I have people over playing pong in the garage, as I can't enjoy the cigar as much when I'm not sitting down. I enjoy puffing on one when I'm alone, with the grill/smoker running, sipping on some CR & Coke, or run if I'm out.
Since I've been smoking just over a year, I've only had so many cigars, and can't say I have a favorite just yet. These are some of the one's I've been smoking the most:
AF Deluxe Curly Head (natural) - started smoking these at first, liked the flavor, but quickly moved on since it now reminds me of a Backwoods. I stay away from these now.
DE Acid - Also one of the first sticks I'd smoke, but now can't stand the infused type, as I'm more interested in the natural stuff.
Sancho Panza - I like these, but they have a little too much spice for my taste. I will pick one up occasionally if I'm in the mood
R&J Gran Reserva - nice and light, but found that the draw is a little too hard, and not much smoke. For the pricepoint, I'll stay away
CAO Brazilia - I've had a maduro before, and the richness kept me away. When I tried the Brazilia, I couldn't believe how smooth and delicious it was. Love these
Brick House (Haus?) - good cigar. I can't find these in a lot of places, but do enjoy them.
Saint Luis Rey (natural Churchill) - This is one of my favorites. It has a nice blend of smoothness and a little bite. For the price, this is one of my "go to" sticks
Punch - Most of these that I've tried are too spicy for me, but maybe I just haven't had the right one yet.
Macanudo - only had a few, but definitely a great stick, but too expensive for me.
I try not to spend over 6-7 bucks on a cigar, so my selection is somewhat limited, but there's definitely enough cigars in this category to satisfy my taste.
Was hoping you guys could recommend a stick I can smoke later today, as I'll have some alone time. Not sure if the info above helps.
