New to Premium Cigars

Hi, everyone. My name is Rich and I just took up cigar smoking about a month ago. Used to smoke dog rockets like Phillies when I was smoking cigarettes and addicted to nicotine. Quit that stuff last year and now I smoke nothing, but premiums and I'm loving it.

I love everything about cigars from the hunt to the purchase to reading and discussing cigars, and finally to the relaxing ritual of smoking a cigar. I've been looking for a hobby to dive into and cigars leave nothing desired on that end.

I've been reading through this forum and have found lots of valuable information It's great to see so many others talking about their passion.

So far, I've only smoked about a dozen cigars, but seem to be getting the hang of it nicely. By far, the two cigars I have enjoyed the most were the Montecristo Habana 2000 Magnum and the Arturo Fuente Gran Reserva. I wonder what that says about me as a smoker as I'm still very new to this and working on developing my palate.

Finally, I want to add that it's great to be a part of this community and I look forward to many discussions with you all to come. Take care, everyone.

Aloha Rich. Nice intro. Any chance you're a PawSox fan?

Not a huge fan of the PawSox, but I do try to get to a game when I can. It's always a good time at McCoy Stadium and you don't have to deal with the huge crowds at stadiums like Fenway.

I just remembered I also wanted to ask what you all think of Neptune Cigar. I ordered from them this week (seems like a good company if you're looking to buy singles) and was very impressed with the speedy delivery and care in packaging.

Welcome and enjoy the new hobby.

The Monte H2000 and AF GR are good smokes, I'm not surprised you enjoyed them.

There is a big world of cigars out there to be discovered.
