Mixing flavors within the the Cigar is always a bad idea, be it peach, mint, coffee.

I don't know about "always"; in my experience it works about half the time.
I like both of these vanilla varieties:


But then again I've had peach and Kahlua cigars that didn't turn out well at all. Another friend tried grape once ... I wasn't brave enough to try one but it smelled very peculiar (well, mostly of grape ::)).

I stand corrected, I am reminded of a Vanilla flavored cigar I had that was not bad.  Perhaps it certain flavors that work well.  I was just focusing on the negative of the Peach Cigar...I don't even want to think what Grape would be like.

Here is the main thing about Cigars for me...my wife refuses to kiss me for at least a day after I've smoked a cigar. (The exception being if she has been drinking and smoked one herself...I think there is a Country song in there somewhere)

Now if you are looking for a cheap cigar that is not too terrible...gotta go with "Backwoods"...they look like Clint Eastwood Spagetti Western type cigars.


I'd been eyeing these out of idle curiosity, but on your recommendation, I picked up a pack. Good call there, thanks!

I'm sure there is. ;D

Also, yesterday I instituted a new rule for myself: on Fridays and Saturdays only, and especially no more smoking on Sundays--it seems extra sinful. :-\ Past attempts at self-regulation have mostly failed, but we'll see how long I can stick to this one....

Answer: not very long. :-\

Cigars: Does anyone partake?

A month or so go, I had my first cigar at my sister-in-law's wedding and enjoyed it thoroughly. Anyone else enjoy the company of a cigar on occasion or with any frequency? And if so, what do you smoke and/or recommend?

I don't smoke, but cigar talk in the politics forum is so 1998.

Cigars in the Sarlacc Pit, I don't get it beside the Clinton part. We already have Cigars in Watto's. Search function must be broken again.  :P

On that note, I go outside for a puff on my colt's.  :-*

I am a big fan, have been smoking cigars (And a pipe which i enjoy even more) for many years now. My newest favorite is a Casablanca cigar. Its a nice creamy cigar. On a side note, i have a friend who recently went to cuba and brought me a cigar. It was the freshest cuban i have ever had and it was amazing.

I to am a cigar afficinado, I generally head towards the Arturo Fuentes and for an average smoke I grab a handfull if the curly heads to save on cash still a great smoke just an uneven burn or sometimes I splurge on one of their premiums. I also grab Onxy or a Cohiba at time., I also smoke a pipe and usually just grab the Captain Black or a local smoke shops house brand cherry or a vanilla.
 That Blackstone stuff I am not sure about- I wonder how much is real tobacco and how much is just fillers. If you like that type of cigar try Al Capone sweets for flavored little cigars even Havana Honeys would be a little better.

When I was out backpacking in Kananaskis country, I had some Captain Black Sweets. Nice flavored cigar.
