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,
