Hiyas, I'm a new cigar smoker from central Pennsylania. I'm not too far on the wrong side of 40, am an avid bagpipe player that competes at many highland games from New York to Virgina, play in a few bands locally and in Pittsburgh, like to drink a good scotch, and have recently discovered the joys of a good smoke.
Years ago I used to have the occasional pipe and had the occasional cigar with the guys. For the most part, they were bad. (White Owl/Swisher Sweet bad... ) A good friend moved back in the area and introduced me to the good stuff. Somehow I never figured out what the whole hullaballoo about cigars was about, and now I'm up to 5+ cigars a week and have bought my first box. My faves from a very limited experience have been the Astral Cameroon and Excalibur III Maduro. Got some Heartfelt 65% beads on order and will pick up a cooler in the next week. Lookin for a few (ha!) good boxes to break it in Been online looking for reviews and tips and happened upon the Club.
I'll give those smokes a look see. From a few reviews they seem like something I'd like. So many cigars, so little credit! May be the thing for my weekly long distance commute.
I am somewhat familiar with the Debil's Dad, and I am steering clear of the Debil himself at the moment. (I don't want to say the name lest I be summoned! Then my soul will be toast for sure!) Online I've only ordered from JRs so far (by way of recommendation from a friend). Was thinkin of giving a few of their Ultimates a try tho I've heard different reports about the quality in recent years.
