    Nice choice! What did you think?

    I just finished a Warped Don Reynaldo corona that was barely smokeable from being plugged. After it warmed up a little I was able to loosen it up a little.

    Nice! A tad dry, so I think it might have burned a little hotter than ideal. I didn't get the sticks in the humidor right away so they sat on the counter on their bag for a couple of days. No harm, though. Pleasant aroma, even burn (one re-light, though), and packed a little more wallop than what I'm used to. (An extra cocktail at dinner probably helped, too!) Overall very enjoyable!

    Be careful with the Opus X. It is a full bodied/full flavored cigar. Smoke it after a meal and smoke it slow.
    RIP Carlos Fuente Sr. The cigar world lost a great man today. Tonight I am going to smoke a Don Carlos 80th Personal Reserve in The Dons honor.

    I smoked for 20 years and enjoyed a cigar from time to time. Last cigar I had was in Las Vegas after 30 yrs. of not smoking. It almost killed me. Bent over puking into a garbage can I vowed to never have one of those again. That day I turned 71. My wife said I looked green.

    pdm4606, below is not directed towards you specifically. Cigars are not for everyone, just like most hobbies.
    Some cigars pack a lot of nicotine, others not so much. Never inhale, smoke after a full meal, smoke slowly and if you begin feeling light headed, dizzy or sick, let a packet or two of sugar dissolve under your tongue or stop smoking and drink a soft drink or something sweet. After about 10 minutes you will be back to near normal.
    I enjoy 1-3 cigars a week and always in the evening about an hour after supper. I got Nic sick once when I began the hobby and it kicked my ass, like a terrible case of flu. I just took a nap and woke up feeling better. It was later I learned about sugar or sweet drink helping prevent the onslaught from starting or shortening or minimizing the effects.

    Just lit a Room 101 Mutante Gold Lancero with a cup of coffee while watching the start of the Cards/Astos game.

    Last night I had a custom roll Johnny O that had been aging for about 7 years. It has held up extremely well and was excellent.

    Flor de Las Antilles Toro made by My Fathers Cigar Co. A couple of years rest has been good to these.

    That is one of my go to's. But I like the Belicoso. The Flor de Las Antilles never disappoints.

    I agree, I prefer Corona, Robusto, Belicoso or Lanceros. But I stray a bit when something catches my eye. I really enjoyed this FdLA.

    Went to the local cigar lounge Friday evening with a friend for poker night. I enjoyed an Oliva V Melanio Maduro torpedo and had a good time.

    Yesterday afternoon was a beautiful sunny 75f and my neighbor text asking if I wanted to come over and smoke a cigar with him on his patio. I took over 2 MonteCristo #4's from 2014. He doesn't like a strong full bodied cigar and also has a habit of only smoking about 1/2 of a cigar before laying it down. Be both nubbed these.
