Hello all, just wondering if there are any cigar smokers here on the forum. If so, let us know which is your favorite one!

I like to light a cigar usually in the late afternoon and enjoy last few hours of daylight reading. Most times its a safari hunting book, others might be a book on oil and gas law. When on a hunting trip, its at the end of the day after a great hunt. I enjoy several brands from Dominican to Nicaraguan. Mostly VegaFina, La Aurora, Oliva (serie "g"). I have tasted numerous brands, but these are the ones found in my humidor.

Occasionally I do....prefer Rocky Patels, but like the Oliva's also.

only have one on the odd occasion these days , but also used to like the monte cristo no2 pyramid/torpedo, and had a couple of boxes of the monte cristo A, you felt as if you should have been directing a hollywood epic in the 1930`s when you fired one of those up ;) plus various romeo y julieta, partagas, h. upman , and davidoff depending on what took the fancy when in the shop. i hate to think what some of those cost now as this was in the 1980`s and early 90`s........

Indeed they sure take one back in time. Taxing and further FDA threats have been driving prices upward.

My favorite is Cohiba Robusto, but the cigar that started my cigar career was Romeo y Julieta nr 2. Sundowner in africa with a good cigar. Nothing can match that:)

Im sure that is an excellent way of ending a day. With the sky a burnt orange color and distant silhouettes of scattered trees maybe an animal or two as well. Now all you need is a good Scotch :)

thanks for sharing!

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there

Wow, great response regarding the title of a thread and an amazing site.

Greetings Mr. Rutledge. My apologies for the latent reply, cell/email prohibited during working hours, apx 72 a week, yikes! I just wanted to thank you for keeping me in mind for possible 577 loads. I actually purchased a few rounds, however, the firearm is still on the fence at this point.
Many Thanks, again. Regards, Dan.
