Intro: One foot in the gutter & One in the grave.

Name: s1n3 n0m1n3 - Latin: sine nomine = English: no name

Location: Southern California

New to the forum, but not new to the habit. I have been a 2 pack a day smoker and a 3-4 sticks a day puffer for the better part of 30+ years. ( l’m sure that puts me at the top of most people’s “deadpool” list )

As most people tend to do I have become comfortable in my smoking habits and kind of lost the passion for trying new smokes. I have kept my humidor stocked with Arturo Fuente, Padron, Hoyo de Monterrey, and Cohiba (Cuban and Non-Cuban) for much of the past 30 years with only the occasional addition of random sticks......that was until a few years back a friend gifted me a box of Diesel Unholy Cocktail and the passion was sparked once more. I have had tons of sticks thrown at me over the years, but none ever really struck me as “new”. They all seemed to be trying to imitate the flavors of the big boys like Cohiba,AF, Padron; et al., and as usual; the imitations all fell short. But this new concoction, though not outstanding in it’s delivery, gave me an exhilarating taste of something truly “new”.
This new found flame has driven me down an interesting road of exploration where I have come to enjoy the idea of trying a new stick more than relying on my old standbys. Even though I keep a solid base of the old “go to’s”, I now find myself frequenting shops and asking for “something different”. This road of exploration hasn’t been paved in gold, as I’ve definitely had my share of stinkers, but I now keep a few more odds and ends in my humidor and I’m always on the lookout for a new gem to add to the crown.

Though I tend to be more of a reader than a writer; I look forward to participating on this forum in the future.

Thanks for looking,

Welcome.... let's see

Coffee... there's a thread for that.

Guns... there's a thread for that.

Drums..well I know we have some musicians, I think a drummer or 2.

Panerai watches... there's a watch thread too.

I think you'll fit right in, maybe even find a new passion in razors and shaving brushes.

Welcome, and it seems you have found the right place to be for cigars, as well as your other interests!

Getting into habits isn't uncommon, and I'm sure many of us have gone through the same experience; I know I have. If it's been a while since you've tried new cigars, the last 5ish years have seen some amazing new blends come out from some smaller boutique companies that are really worth trying. Many of the RoMa Craft offerings are simply outstanding, BLTC makes top-notch sticks, as well as Viaje, Warped, and some others. Even larger brand names have had to compete, and released quality new blends; My Father, Oliva, Plasencia...

Swing by the Newbie Sampler Trade thread, and you'll no doubt get to try some, if you're so inclined.

Either way, welcome!

Welcome to the forum! Over here in Indiana, we also like cigars, coffee, and guns. We've got some drummers around, too. I don't know too many people who're into fine watches, but I'm always willing to learn! (I wear an Apple Watches myself, mostly for the activity tracking--we professors can be a bit sedentary if we don't watch out.)
