    Like the title says, I've recently started collecting and smoking cigars. I am always looking for new things to try and wondered what you guys like? Right now I'm working on a Henry Clay sampler I got and those are pretty good. So any of you guys have favs?

    You might also enjoy macanudos and Rocky patelĀ“s, I like those two almost as much as the onyx. As for least favorite, I hate the Thompson house brand.

    How strong would you rate those? So far all I've tried is mild and medium bodied cigars.

    I am a big cigar fan and have a tupperdor sitting in my living room. My favorite cigars are consistently Arturo Fuente cigars such as the 858 maduro, Hemingway Signature and 858 natural. I am also a fan of Illusione and Padron cigars. Recently, I've been enamored by Quesada's smokes and I definitely recommend picking a few up.

    I'm more of a cigar collector (with a very small collection) than smoker but do enjoy one occasionally.

    recent good ones...

    Gran Habano Vintage 2002 Robusto
    Padilla Hybrid Maduro
    La Gloria Cubana

    I honeymooned in the Dominican Republic and love the mild sweet cigars from the DR... usually the cheap ones are great.

    Haven't had a decent cigar in ages. Do you buy yours locally in DFW area? Was partial to more robust cigars, though that was when I also smoked cigarettes. Curious now if I'd prefer something with a lighter wrapper.

    I love Tobacco Road up on Cooper in Arlington. They also give 10% on purchases off for military, LEO, fire, and medical, so I like to give them my business. I use to be in Arlington all the time going to UTA, but now I find myself there less often. I have a buddy on my fire department with me who speaks worlds about Pop's Safari Room in Fort Worth, but it's a mix of cigar shop, wine shop, and bistro. Good place to hang out and smoke.


    My favorite everyday smoke is still Rocky Patel Vintage 1990. :thumbup:

    Bitter, I'll go ahead and suggest Rocky Patel Vintage 1999. They have a nice Connecticut wrapper and are available at many shops.

    When I order boxes I order from online stores but when I want to try several different kinds I go to a local cigar shop. There are several good ones in the dfw area
