What's your Cigar?

In keeping with the "What's your..." trend of late, I figured I would ask...

What's your Cigar?

My personal preference is the cognac dipped Al Capone.

RE: What's your Cigar?

I dont smoke cigars but if I did I would smoke White Owls. Why you ask? Well I like the name "white owl". It sounds endangered and therefore rare and expensive.

I am a cigar smoker and Ashton is my brand. They are very smooth.


Very big car, with a very small engine.

RE: What's your Cigar?

I smoke about on average a cigar every week. I prefer the Romeo y Julieta Reserve Maduros and the Special Edition Red Labels. My friend much like S320 prefer the Ashton Cabinets, he likes the No. 7's. Ashtons are good but personally I like something a little harder.

Mac, in the W163 forum, did just that last week in south Miami.

The cuban was driving a '04 996 TT and Mac was at the wheel of his ML500. He smoked the Cuban, fair and square!

RE: What's your Cigar?

Right now I'd say a Cohibia Siglo VI. For a short one, the Montecristo 4 is great!

RE: What's your Cigar?

Montecristo #4 for a quickone, Bolivar for another quick one, and Montecristo #2 Torpedo for about 2 - 3 hours of cruising in my BENZ. Cohiba Esplendido if I feel like Fidel. God, I have to stop smoking these things. They're costing me as much as the BENZ is to run.

Cubans are usually the ones I prefer, although I've had others which are very good. Davidoff comes to mind. This week its been about 6 cigars.

RE: What's your Cigar?

I currently have three humidors with approx. five boxes of legally obtained Habanas. My favorite three are: Partagas Series D No 4, Bolivar Royal Corona (Robusto) & Cohiba Esplendidos.

Here's my inventory:

Cohiba Esplendidos AND Robusto

Montecristo No 2 (the benchmark Piramide) rich, spicy a Havana classic.

H. Upmann Sir Winstons

Vegas Robaina Don Alejandros

Partagas Lusitania (Double Corona - beautiful smooth smoke with lots of spice) AND Series D No 4 (Robusto) rich powerhouse for the evening.

Bolivar Royal Corona ( Robusto)

Punch - The Double Corona; a very fine cigar, best enjoyed after dinner - a must for the aficionado

Romeo y Julieta Churchills - Tubes

Sancho Panza Belicosos

Vegas Robaina Famosos

I also have a dozen Padron Anniversary & Opus X. Most of my stoggies are aged at least 3-4 years. I enjoy three or four monthly and prefer them with a 25 or 30 year Macallan.
