Montecristo #2. The Cuban version, of course.

I enjoy a cigar on special occasions, maybe 5-6 a year. Onyx Reserve is another good one...

No, I bought my last few in Europe and enjoyed them at a wedding I went to there... I never have the courage to try to get any through customs. Luckily I have friends who do.

How is it that something that smells that bad can even be smoked? Landfills smell better.

I smoked one when I was 13. I threw up for hours.

The smell makes me nauseous.

Last cigar I remember smoking was at a Jimmy Buffet concert in the parking lot. I had had way too many blender drinks but at the time, a bikini clad hottie with a Home Depot apron on selling cigars seemed appropriate. I paid $5 for it is all I can say.

BTW, it was one of those "two pockets on a string nail holder type things", not the big orange coverup type Home Depot apron.

I actually had one of those last night while I was out celebrating something with a group of friends. It was pretty smooth.

Eh, yeah. Maybe a bit. I usually keep anywhere from 300 to 1000 cigars on hand at any given time. It's been a hobby for me since I was 18.

More of a connoisseur than a collector (as I smoke them, not look at them), and you'd be surprised what kind of "high end" cigars you can find at local shops, but they don't come cheap.

For a single cigar? I think somewhere around $50, but I'd pay more for certain ones. Most cigars I smoke on a routine basis (three or four times a week) run for around $5-6 a pop.
