Re: The Good Stuff

I learned early on that cbid didn't have much I was interested in. With a few exceptions of course; there are deals to be had. But mostly it seems like good deals on bad smokes.

That which is falling, should also be pushed

Exactly. Haven't been smoking pipes very long at all, butthe cellar is building up rapidly and I'm dying for a castello.

Even if it is a little expensive, the best way to start is probably just to pick up a handful of singles at the local B&M. Try to pick up a variety and see what you like so far as styles. Then, go to one of the online sites (Cigars International is probably most popular) and buy some samplers to try different brands (and sometimes styles). At that point you'll be well on your way down another terrific slope.

What have you tried so far and what have you liked? What style of pipe tobaccos do you prefer?
well soo far, I've tried a La flor dominicono, a punch grand cue, and yesterday I tried my very 1st preminum cigar a alec Bradley Presado, and I never thought I'd like a full body cigar, then again I've been smoking full body english of late, that Presado I wanted more of, but at 14 bucks a stick, not a every day smoke for sure hahahha
maybe once a week hehehhe

just my opinion so take it for what its worth. If your spending 14 dollars on a cigar, buy a Padron! There are only a few non Cubans that I still buy and AB is not in the mix. Nothing wrong with AB (just my opinion).

14 a pop seems awfully high for that stick.

There are amazing cigars in the 7 - 12 dollar range that are, well, amazing.

Re: The Good Stuff

Dammit Dave, how are you ever gonna know what a good cigar is supposed to taste like if all you are smoking are the best ones out there. sometimes it pays to know what crap tastes like lol.

A lack of preparation on your part, does not constitute an emergency on my part.

Re: The Good Stuff

Believe me Shannen, I was trying to find a good cigar for little money. I had some real dog rockets! One that one of my friends lit and declared, "This tastes like it's been rolled in horse sh!t!" I finally settled on Cuban Reject Robusto Maduros. Actually just gave all those away!

It was.....well, let's just say it was.

It's probably because I'm in the Pipe subforum, but when I read that statement.....a certain blend came to mind.
