  • Smoking Cigars

    So the boss just had a new granddaughter this morning. In order to celebrate, a couple guys from the office got together with him to smoke a cigar. Is there nothing better than an occasional cigar with the boys to break up the day?

    It makes you think about the lost art of manly camaraderie and how something small, like shooting the shit with the boys over a cigar, can improve the morale amongst co-workers. Or maybe my head is just spinning, who knows?

    I think the last cigar I had for "celebratory" purposes was on the evening of April 7, 2008 on the patio of my buddy's place. Can't remember what the occasion was . . .

    Have had a few since then, but for no other purpose than sitting around, drinking good bourbon and playing cards.

      I smoke Cohibas (bought in Germany, made in Cuba) occasionally. Last time was when my old buddy.Tom was visiting from Philly. We drank way too much and were sobering up in downtown Orlando, where there's a really high class cigar store. We both emptied about $200 on nice cigars and kept carousing through bars -- with rooftop smoking porches. Good times.

      This dangerous mutant is arriving again next week. I fear for my life.

        my most recent cigar was at a small poker tourney about 2 weeks ago. i smoked it to celebrate making the final table as chip leader, then pissing it all away before reaching any prize $.

              If you decide to see what you're missing out on, don't make your first purchase from Walgreen's. If you don't have any friends who are cigar smokers that can show you the ropes, go to a cigar shop and let the proprietor know that you're starting at zero and they'll get you squared away with something mild, show you how to cut it, light it, etc. Just remember not to inhale and don't puff away at it incessantly like it's a cigarette.

              I usually smoke anywhere from one to five cigars a week.

              My last cigar was on Monday while walking the dogs after a long day at work, a cheap, crummy Professor Sila Double Robusto. It was lousy (having had one other one before, I knew it would be), and I put it down with about 1/2-3/4 remaining once I got home, and I rarely put a cigar down with more than 1/3 left. I didn't feel like smoking anything nice or standing around outside after the dog walk, just wanted to smoke something, so in that sense it was perfect for my needs.

              The last fancy, occasion-marking (I don't want to use the word celebratory in this context, though I guess in some ways it was a celebration of remembrance) cigar I had was an Arturo Fuente Opus X Fuente Fuente on 8/13 which was the anniversary of my mother passing away. I smoked it while on the phone with my brother and dad.

                visiting a cigar store is great advice for learning the basics.
