Most anything from Padron or CAO

I used to smoke 2-3/week, but now I'm more like 2-3/month. The Padron Anniversary series makes life worth living. CAO Flathead is wonderful. Also love the Camacho full-bodied sticks - those are a kick in the ass.

My real name is Monica, and my favorite is the Gran Habano El Gigante.

My once every so often celebratory cigar has morphed into this.

Admittedly, a little more work than a cigar, but a better experience overall. And, one thing is easier: keeping pipe tobacco for a long time...just put it in a jar and seal it. No humidor required.

I'll bet you wear a deerstalker and a monocle when you smoke it.

Heh. I had to google "deer stalker." Had no idea that was Sherlock Holmes' hat.

This badass knew how to smoke a pipe, though.

When I was younger I smoked a Meerschaum from Astley's on Jermyn Street.

Smoked Rattray's Old Gowrie.

After a 3 decade hiatus, I got into cigars as an occasional accompaniment with a good whiskey after a great meal.

I like Liga Privada No 9.

I also enjoy Drew Estate's Extraordinary Larry, Toast and Roam.

No meerschaum for me yet. Just a briar.

I used to smoke Partagas and Macanudos...25 years ago.

Just one every few months. But, I stopped for a long time.

I don't even recognize most cigar brands when I walk into a humidor these days. The suppliers have changed a lot.
