I've never been much of a cigar smoker but in the last few weeks I've
bought a few singles and tried them out. Are cigars addicting like
cigarettes or snuff? I haven't tried all the brands or types yet so
what's the top seller of cheap cigars these days?

What's the best and most expensive cigars?

Cigar tobacco is processed differently from cigarette tobacco, so that
there is far less of the addictive nicotine absorbed by the
body...cigars' addiction is more psychological than physiological.

I think this is a cheap a place as you will find to buy cigars.

My cardiologist told me that if I was going to smoke, to smoke cigars.

Best cheap cigar out there?

This little number we call the "Black & Mild". Its black, yet mild,
and I do believe one of the best values in cigars on the market. It
even comes with a little plastic tip to chew on.

Goes great with Johnny Walker Red.

Of course, there's no such thing as a "good" cheap cigar. In cigars, and in
life, why settle for anything mediocre? Here is Popinjay's philosophy
summed up in one sentence.

Welcome to the club :)

I believe that they are addictive as well, but not as much as cigarettes,
as they are not filled with extra chemicals and additives. In any case, I
have never felt the need for a cigar even after smoking them daily on a
vacation whereas I have after smoking a few cigarettes.

> What's the best and most expensive cigars?

It depends. A lot of it is a matter of personal taste, and most cigar
makers have several different cigars, using different quality of leaf, etc.

Good (yet relatively common and available) brands that are good include:

Cohiba (Cuban, cannot be easily found in the USA)
Montecristo (Cuban, but Dominican version found in the USA)
Romeo Y Julieta (same)
Davidoff (Dominican)
Macanudo (Dominican, one of my personal favourites in the mid price range)
CAO (Honduras)
Don Tomas (Honduras)


There are more, but that's a decent starting list.

Research once you have some personal taste, and go from there. Also,
alt.smokers.cigars.clubhouse for other discussion.

Dominican Cohiba Red Dots are simply delicious. Make sure they are fresh
and from a reputable source. Medium to full bodied, the "Red Dot" is full
of flavor! Make sure it is the red dot!

If you like the Cameroon wrapper, (as the Cohibas above use), you'll
probably like the CAO CX2 Cameroons. I have just recently started with
these. They have a Cameroon binder and wrapper, with Nicaraguan and
Columbian filler. Medium bodied.

Here's another favorite of mine. The Cusano Cuvee Blanc. They are medium
bodied, a flawless Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. Creamy, nutty, with that
distinct Cusano flavor that any regular fan knows what I'm talking about.
Delicious!

Here is Lindsey, reviewing the Cuvee Blanc.

There has to be something to that.

Personally, I can smoke the biggest cigar around, but after I put it
out, I still can light up a cigarette afterwards.

I never inhale cigars, but you would think I still got a shipload of
nicotine into my system.

Yes, I am a Moron, but there must be something besides that.

I have never read specifically about chemicals or additives in
cigarettes that produce results like that, but I really don't know.

It's a mystery.

I like Punch.

I was in Manilla several years ago and smoked some Cohibas. They were
definitely much better than anything I've found here in the States.
