I’m in the cigar business and in my opinion, they are terrible cigars that are overpriced. It’s too bad, because they look really cool. Send me your address and I’ll send you one if you really want to try one.
I've been an online order-er for at least the last 10 years or so, even though I'm 45 minutes away from one of the big JR Cigar hubs. Haven't shopped locally for a long time. One shop I frequented pissed me off and the other one closed down when the owner got busted for something (I think it was fraud, but his was half a head shop anyway, so, who knows).
Over the years I'd settled on Famous Cigars and Cigars International. Then CI spun off Cigar.com and they offered a monthly club that, if you joined, you'd get free shipping, it was over $100, not it's $150. They send you five smokes per month in the club. It's a little high, but it does give you the opportunity to try things out. Over the years there have been a couple that I've put into my weekly rotation. I buy 4-5 boxes every 4-5 weeks, so the free shipping is a nice little bonus.
We’ve talked about the Indian cigars on other threads — I’ve had ‘em and I give them a “C” rating. A tad harsh but construction is satisfactory and they look cool. Plus they’re Indian, so we need to support ‘em, eh? My daily smoke right now is a CAO Black -+ great price and a great smoke.
Currently on the deck having a Perdomo 10-year Champagne with some Oceans 18 bourbon — stellar...
My personal faves are the Avo Ritmo, Cohiba siglos, and CAO V660 or Iron horse - - all excellent. Plus any of the Fuente Opus X lines — pricey but well worth it if you can afford ‘em. And of course Monte Cristo #2 or #4 (Habano).
As soon as you posted this I kicked myself for not including the Oliva melanios (have some in my humidor) and the LP T-52 (and also COHIBA Behike T-54 or -56) . All really, really good. Liga privadas are always outstanding. Concur!
@Gort turned me onto the Casa Fuente and these are world class, also. You can only get them from the Fuente shop in Caesars Palace in Vegas. No online orders. I was going to ride out there this summer to grab some.
So, since we are in the information age, one of the trends going on is Memes and demotivationals.. they're traded in emails social media, and MMS messages daily and can be good for turn'n frowns, upside down! I thought it would be fun to bring them here for us to chuckle like the chuckling...
Preferably motorcycle-related — but if not, .... keep em clean and apolitical.
-UPDATE : no graphically disturbing images !! (You wouldn’t think I’d have to articulate that, eh — but I do...)
(see post #8184)
Since the “pictures and videos” section specifies Indian motos, I put this here. Anything motorcycle is welcome!
NOTE: biker humor is sometimes a bit on the rough side. If that offends you, stop here. I have put a safety flag on everything that I could logically find that has questionable...
