    says it all in the title really, whats your favourite cigar [if you smoke them] and why? do you smoke them on special occasions or daily?
    my 3 personal favourites are the davidoff 2000, fuente fuente opus x and the dunhill signed range although one is also partial to the occasional romeo y julietta

    Cubans all the way for me, Siglo VIs are my favorite and have had Montecristo Edmundos once or twice and enjoyed them.

    Only smoke them on special occasions, would smoke them daily but they are a nightmare to import and for some reason the UK based sellers products always seem to have a lesser taste.

    What would either of you recommend for a first smoke? Im sure certain tobacconists have specific brands and a wide variety, but for those who would buy a cigar at a regular tobacco counter in a shop?

    Honestly, I'm not sure which brand they were, but I bought a box of 10 Cubans in Holland, and they were superb, although I ended up giving away 7 as gifts :eek:

    Dominican cigars are rather good aswell. Sadly I'm down to my box of 20 Dutch, which are still far better than what you can get over here for any sort of reasonable price, but still, how I long for a Cuban again.

    Going back to Holland in 6 months or so, and I'm talking a wedge and will be buying a crate/box of 50 Cubans.

    Funds are tight at the moment, so when I do buy, I usually just go for a five pack of Henri Winterman's corona. When I'm flush, I'll spring for a couple of Dominicans from the local tobacconists.

    Think shops like tesco or waitrose only sell miniatures which are a bit meh imo

    Threshers stock some pretty decent ones, as a rule of thumb the larger the cigars diameter the more taste it has, if you smoke cigarettes then you can probably jump straight in with a bigger cigar, if not might want to go for the thinner as the larger might be a bit much.

    as for the skin i would suggest either the very dark brown (usually means they are Cuban) or the dark brown (which are usually either Cuban/ Honduran). If you want a milder taste then light brown is a good choice (I'd stay away from greenish brown, is very bland)

    ordering an international pack is a good idea if you wana get a good overview and pick out your preferred smoke, if not Romeo y Julieta (around £11.00 and comes in a tin container) is a good one to go for, threshers will probably stock it and larger superstores might as well.
