    I am not a cigar coneissuer but I figured somebody here might be. I got a sampler pack for a really good price in my junk mail and found these two cigars to be pretty awesome.

    Bahia Maduro No. 2 Torpedo
    Arganese Maduro Robusto

    Anybody know these two cigars or want to make other recommendations?

    I know cigars are neither food nor wine but this seemed like the best category.

    Cigars are for people who don't have a sphincter to suck on.

    I don't care what they are or how much they cost.
    I hate them!
    They stink up everything and everyone around them. There's an individual who haunts two of the casinos where my wife and I go to play once in a while. He shows up and I'm almost sick to the stomach.

    Don't listen to Taz. He is just another sphincter that has probably never even tasted a good cigar. I know all about cigars. They are great. I've drifted more towards pipes in recent years, but I can tell you this:
    • It's a big lie that cigars and pipes cause cancer like cigarettes. Maybe if you huff and chew on them all day long every day, but a good cigar is like a fine wine or food to be relished. They always taste and smell better / great when you are the one smoking one. Horrible when you're not. Lesson: smoke 'em if you got 'em and fuck the people who don't like them. They don't know how great they are.
    • Lots of trendy brands now coming and going, plus the traditional ones. Not familiar with the second but Bahia is OK.
    • Cigars are made not just by filler and wrapper, but by length and diameter which affect flavor as well as strength and how long they last. Then by shape, All wrappers have their strengths from double claro to oscuro color (oils). Me, I probably like the Colorado or Colorado Maduro wrappers best. They all taste different.
    • Shape, its all personal choice, me, I probably lean towards the Corona Gorda, petite corona lengths as a nice personal smoke, enough, not too long, but as you grow used to them sometimes the bigger ones are nice too. Can take 2 hours to smoke those. Parejo and Perfecto are my favorite shapes. You'll find these all affect the smoke, burn and flavor.
    • Use a match or butane lighter. Light the end well but don't draw the butane or dead match smoke into the cigar. After lit, blow out through cigar to make sure it is clear of contaminants. Make sure you have a good cigar cutter. You need to cut enough off but not too deeply. The bullet cutters work well. I like those.
    • Key is to get the cigar lit right and burning evenly and keep it that way.
    • You must keep cigars in a proper humidor at the right humidity. Don't let cigars get too dry or try to rehumidify them too fast or they can crack and smoke unevenly. Even worse, don't get them too humid. 66-68% humidity it about right. Well kept, a good cigar develops crystals and a gray powder on the surface. This is not mold.
    • No correlation between cost and quality. I've smoked $1 cigars that were great and $30 ones I was disappointed in.
    • Really a lot you need to know, get right and practice with cigars. Study study study.
    BRANDS:

    Lots of good brands. Here are a few of my favorite in no particular order.
    1. La Aurora perfecto.
    2. Padron Anniversary Series 1964 box pressed. Padron makes one of the best cigars out there.
    3. Principes. A good, cheap little cigar that comes in flavors. USUALLY, your best cigars do not come flavored. These are nice.
    4. Any Cuban cigar you can find. Bolivar are nice.
    5. Acid cigars. Flavored and expensive but worth it. Try the Acid Extraordinary Larry and the Acid Liquid. Nothing else like them.
    6. Natural. Made by the same company that makes Acid.
    7. Helix.
    8. Cojimar.
    9. Drew Estate.
    10. Rocky Patel.
    11. Avo Uvezian.
    12. Oliva.
    13. Arturo Fuente Hemingway.
    14. Indian Tabec.
    These are a few of the brands that always seemed to keep me wanting to come back for more. Enjoy.

    Sucking on long brown things that have juice cum out the end of them ain't my game. I'll stick to weed, it's not as homo-istic.

    Who asked you? Smoke all the weed you want. It isn't an exclusive or. BTW, there is no "juice" coming out the end of cigars and cigars can range from green to tan to black. But then, you've always been one more idiot here who has to interject their displeasure or opinions into topics they have no interest in nor know anything about. Go get stoned.

    One of the best cigars I ever had was made right in front of me.
