New to this forum

I am new to this forum, just want to say hello to everyone.

I've been smoking cigars for about 3 years now. Started when I was in a casino in Atlantic City. I ran out of cigarettes, the Pit boss offered me a punch of Macanudo Hampton Court and a Remy Martin XO. Got hooked since then. Sampled a variety of brands, cheap and not so cheap; have yet to develop a favorite profile.

My humidors are stuffed wit mostly H. Upmann Cameroon, Cusano (18 and Corojo), Indian Tabac Natural Super Fuerte, Camacho and Flor de Oliva.

I look forward to be chatting and learning from everyone here.

Good smoking.

Welcome.Like you I am still new to cigars.Ending my 4th year.Made many mistakes, wasted a lot of money mainly reading internet reviews and using as my information source catalogues and magazines.
I've stopped all of that- I was wrong.
Now, my information source are the members of this forum who spend their own money on cigars, and freely voice their opinion.A bunch of great guys and gals.
I now purchase my cigars from Cigar.com. Loyality and service.
Nothing against the other internet dealers- I have an account with most, but I now choose to spend my money smarter not cheaper.
I would like to know a few of your favorites.

Malone,

At the present time, I like H. Upmann Cameroon (I like the taste and aroma, but I do have a problem keeping the Vintage Cameroon Belicoso lit though, it kept going out every few minutes), Cusano and Indian Tabac. Haven't had the pleasure of Cuban, although one of my friend brought back a RyJ from Canada a few years back, I wasn't sure if it was Cuban, at the time, I wasn't into cigars.

Reference the Upmanns. I've been a Marylander my whole life, but have worked for New York and New Jersey construction firms since the mid 70's who were working in Maryland- around Washington DC.They needed a local, and at that time I was a Superintendent.
All the bosses ( NY & NJ Guys) smoked Upmanns from Cuba.Long big cigars- they would give me a few. At that time I was a Lucky Strike and beer guy. I liked the bosses big cigars.
When I started cigars- four years ago-the only name I knew was Upmann. I don't smoke them now.They may be very good- they look nice, but just not for me. Don't let this influence you, but as a closing comment- I did smoke a few H.Upmann Sir Winston's in Canada in 2003( Cubans). This 7x47 was (as children speak) good,gooder,goodest.

Yes indeed, that's what I call it. A hobby is something that can be shared, but also becomes part of one's personal culture, and can be enriching and edifying to the individual or hobbyists at large.

I think Malone was a cuban cigar roller in a previous life From the posts I've read, his knowledge about construction, burn, the youth of a stick (which can give you a nasty taste of ammonia and a burning sensation on the lips, toward the end), are pretty right on for a guy from Maryland who has been smoking for 3-4 years.

Reading his posts are to a degree, like reading Bloofington and Vince's: Afterwards, I always get a craving for a smoke (I'm burning a Cohiba Siglo V...great taste, billowing clouds of smoke, tight construction and filled with spice...no ammonia)...no pot roast so far (although Vince's recipe's for bean soup had me drooling just a little) and I never really was a fan of "All My Children."

I can see Malone in a comfortable chair, his golden next to him burning a stick with a sign on the door that says: "I make it a rule never to smoke more than one cigar at a time."

Cian:
I cleaned up the yard last Saturday and Sunday- raked all the winter kill and cleaned up all landscape beds. I hire a landscape firm which places about one dump truck load.The mulch work was completed today.
Great fun for both Goldens.
They are at my feet- in my uptairs office- with the door closed. No sign on the door, wife hates cigar smoke and the Goldens are not her most favorable today because they smell like mulch- head to toe, and the Goldens love it. I rarely wash the Goldens because I brush them daily which keeps them odor free and this lack of washing does not dry out their skin. May have to wash them.
Smoking a Padron 1964 Pyramid- had to cut off 3/4 of an inch to get it to draw like a 3000.Not a great smoke in comparison to the 3000.Won't buy another.
Keep the threads coming- I enjoy your comments.
Malone
