Anyone here like cigars? And I mean legit cigars, not weed or black&milds. I've been collecting a lot of rare/limited edition cigars for a couple years and smoke one every now and then. Kind of like the different flavors and smells that they get.
Anyone else? What are some of your favorite brands?
Luckily I've been able to pick up some real cubans on vacations out of the country and bring em home, but quite honestly, you can get some very similar tasting (or better tasting) non-cuban cigars for much less. The hype is just because they're illegal, just like drugs and underage drinking lol
Ya know, the one Cuban I have had, I wasn't all that impressed. But then it was pretty dry and it started to unroll, which was the main cause of my dislike. So I can't really complain.
I'm by no means an expert, but we are about 5 miles from Canada so we used to run across the border to pick up Cohibas and some other cubans back in the day. I have had better cigars for sure.
I think the general sentiment among aficionados is that Cuban cigars aren't really all that impressive. Funny thing about nationalizing the industry... most of the families left and opened up shop in other Caribbean nations. But they are still popular on a cache that is 30-40 years old when they were the industry-leader.
