I love cigars and I colect them too. My favorite cigar store recently closed and I suddenly found myself without my favorite smokes. I was able to find a host of online cigar retailers when I had the chance to search the web. I never knew that there are many sites which carry my favorite brands. They even carry the rare ones and has great deals on some upcoming brands which I would definitely try out. My cigars are now only a click away.

Even if I have stopped smoking already, I still need to buy a few boxes of cigars for my grandfather. He and his friends meet up every Saturday for a mahjong and cigar session. They take turns in bringing tobacco and every time his turn comes, I am tasked to buy a few boxes of premium cigar brands. I have to be careful in choosing their favorite brands. I cannot just buy anything or I will be scolded. One time I made a mistake of buying cheaper ones to help him save money but he ended up spending more. None of them wanted to try it out because they did not know the brand. I had to rush back to the cigar store to buy the premium brands. I learned my lesson and since then, I never bought brands that they don’t know.

It’s a perfect Thanksgiving for me. A valued client had sent me a box of Padron cigars. I’m ecstatic. I’ve been handling their account for almost a decade now and became close friends with the owner. It’s an early bonus for me. He knows how much I love these cigars. It’s more than a professional relationship. Our families have become close too. I love my job and the new friends that come with it.

I love rewarding myself after a successful project. Nothing beats a glass of brandy and a good smoke. I would pour myself a glass, retreat to my study. A box of perdomo cigars is on hand for that gratifying smoke. I would play my favorite jazz album, lay on the couch. I’m not into big celebrations. I just a quiet time for myself and congratulate myself for doing another great job.

Some humidors being sold at for storing your cigars.

Do you smoke cigars? Contrary to what some other people may think, cigars are different from cigarettes. Cigars are dried and fermented tobacco that are tightly-rolled by a dried but bigger tobacco leaf.

My buddy just came from a tour of South America. Sharing the same passion, he brought back a wonderful present for me. I grinned when he handed me a box of cohiba cigars dominican. We went to the porch to try them out. He told me about his trip as we sipped scotch. The cigars were a welcome addition to my collection.

I got a few unusual gifts last Christmas. I am a big cigar man and a few of my buddies gave me cigars bundles for Christmas. Thankfully, they gave me different flavors. In total, they must have given me an entire year’s supply. I have smoked quite a few and they’re a good nightcap after a hard day at work. My friends really know how to keep me relaxed.

I have a surprise for my buddies this New Year. They’ll be coming over for a barbecue party. I’ve got my meats and poultry prepared. They all love my steaks but I’ve gotten them a special treat. It has been an after-meal routine that we smoke just to get things leveled. I have a cigars sampler that they’ll surely love. They’re all cigar aficionados and this will surely give them a rush. I can almost see how their faces would light up when they see what I have in store for them.

I always have a nightcap before I sleep. A good smoke sets me up for a good sleep. A friend sent me a carton of Black and Mild cigars. I find it smooth and the aroma is great. I’m a cigar aficionado and I must say it’s one of the best smokes I’ve had. I have to let my cigar buddies try this. I’ll ask my friend to send me some more.

I’m a cigar aficionado and every now and then, my buddies and I flock to our favorite cigar bar to sample their new smokes. Even when we play our monthly round of golf, we smoke our favorite cigars during our lull in play. My buddy Ray brought a pack  of romeo cigars one time and we tried it after our round. I must admit that we were impressed by its rich taste and silky wrap. It’s comparable to some of our favorite brands. There’s nothing better than a good smoke after playing golf with your friends.
