    Smoked my first Cuban cigar last week. Did my research before hand and found a swanky cigar lounge in the Bulgargi Hotel owned by the guy who owns Davidoff of London. I was too pour to pay 600 pounds for 2014 limited edition Cohiba but based on years of trusted advice from @Swaye I found a Trinidad for 78 pounds which was one of the best cigars I've had in my life. Obviously you pay a premium to buy a cigar to smoke in a lounge, but indoor throat cancer, is the best throat cancer.


    Oh yeah, well I smoked a Backwoods HoneyBerry driving up Hwy 10 on Saturday.

    And my cab still smells like it 3 days later.

    Those things are over $1 per stick these days! Damnit.

    So there!
    Moving to White Wakanda and joining a cuntry club necessitated my becoming more of a sophisticant.
    What's your middle of the night, too far from home and needing as smoke choice, then? Swisher? White Owl? AYC Grenadiers?

    You gotta have a trailer-class cigar for the rough times. Which is it?
    watch it with the trailer talk - being a pro at trailers I happen to have a pouch of backwoods -
    Even trailer guys are allowed guilty pleasures.

    Just axe @Swaye.

    Smokeless Ashtray: Does such a thing actually exist for cigars?

    I'll take your comments off-the-air. Thanx.

    So, fuck Budweiser's Costco 36 pack for $26. Sapporo just took it's place in my rotation, and AB is out as well.

    Found a Holmes cigar ashtray on Amazon for around $25 that actually works pretty well, except the fan clicks a little, which is annoying. If I find a better one, I'll poast about it.

    CigarConcierge in Seattle is run by someone with ties to the UW program and makes it easy for me to order shit and then not have to deal with anything beyond a PayPal button click.

    They text me when they have really good stuff. I can keep beating off at my computer and still buy whatever.

    I recommend them for modestly priced stuff.

    I love Bud Heavy, although it's second place to Coors Banquet as my pods @CfettersNachoLover and @CFetters_Nacho_Lover know well. But neither pair well with Cigars.

    For cigars, it's:

    1) Dark Rum




    2a) Bourbon
    2b) Scotch







    3) Faggy IPA or Pale Ale




    Everything else is worthless unless you're a camel puller like @PurpleBaze in which case, covfefe is acceptable

    Ordered some Oliva Serie V Churchill Extras a few weeks back from Fox. In the past I haven't really been able to get into the Oliva hype, but this was the #5 cigar of 2022 for CA so decided to take a flyer. Absolutely fantastic and will be buying more.

    Dudes still wear gaudy watches? F' me and my lack of fashion, watch culture....

    Amazing throat cancer weather recently, might have to light off a cheap, no name cigar to get back in the swing. It's about time to blow the dust off my spring Chinook plunking gear and go sit down on the big river and smoke cigars while waiting on a salmon to cruise by.

    My watch ain’t gaudy. It’s regular old stainless steel tool watch and all real men need a respectable watch.

    That's funny cause my watch bros here like @Doogles and @Swaye are always telling me the standard, modern Omega SMP bracelet - i.e., from James Bond Golden eye to the present - is too chunky.

    Chunk is all about the bling. Nothing to do with comfort, use or function.

    The lifted 4x4 without any scratches of watch hierarchy.

    German or Italian pilsner is a better palette cleanser before getting into second/next cigar.

    Throat cancer season is upon us in White Wakana and Yella has been going through sticks like Grant through Richmond. @dannarc I might need to give up the hunter gathering and become a civilized farmer like @Swaye.

    Some recent smokes I've really enjoyed...

    https://www.cigaraficionado.com/top25cigar/oliva-serie-v-churchill-extra-2022

    Mentioned this one above but wanted to provide the CA review. I'm also not a Churchill guy...way too much stick for me. But these Serie V has lived up to their #5 Cigar of 2022 rating.

    https://www.cigaraficionado.com/ratings/24245/name/ashton-aged-maduro-no.-10-robusto

    Have never been an Ashton guy but took a flyer on these #10 Maduros. Robustos are my favorite size of stick and these are rich in flavor while still being silky smooth. Some nice hints of shoe leather, cumin, lemon zest and avacado @Swaye

    I blew through my 2023 Cuban cigar budget in London this past spring. They are going to have to remain an overseas novelty purchase for me.

    It's been trending on the hot side for the back patio here in Spudville. Looks like a little cool down coming through the 4th, upper 70's! Thinking about making an outdoor fire with some shitty pondo pine wood, kicking back with some clear 'shine, maybe a little apple pie and enjoying a nice evening with a decent smoke stick that I am in short supply of.

    The wife brought me a Cuban from Mehico last yr, damn good
