Just wondering if any blitzers smoke cigars or pipes?? If so what are you smoking? Favourite cigars or tobacco, the old cuban vs non cuban debate, best suppliers or cigar and drink combo’s. I’m keen to hear from you guys and gals.
Yup. Been an original Ruby man for 20 years or so, after switching from Dr Pat.
Not for much longer though. Moving into vaping very very soon, and doing research into apparatus, and juices at the moment,… so any advice from blitzers that have also taken that route would be appreciated.
Used to be a Drum, then an Old Holburn, then back to Drum smoker. Bank and Port Royal in between somewhere. I could roll an immaculate cigarette. Gave up 5 years ago - so, so far as vaping and juices are concerned, I stick with orange.
(I’m not sure this is where the OP meant the conversation to go. There seems an art to smoking cigars that I could never quite master.)
Love a good cigar, but I prefer a smaller cuban than the big fat suckers,… they take far too long to finish, and while some have no problem leaving them semi smoked and coming back to them, I reckon they taste no where near as good at that point, and you are essentially spending a lot of bucks for half a good experience.
Years ago there were ciggy sized ones called “Denver Smalls” & IIRC, it was the Brandy Mellow type I would buy all the time, and used to just smoke 4 or 5 a day, but I haven’t been able to buy them for a decade plus unfortunately, they were great.
If I were to take that route today, I’d likely go the Mini Cohibas, or Monte Christo “Clubs”
Makes it sound kinda illegal, which it aint, but some seem to have that impression …
I was actually thinking of starting a vaping thread, but hey, why not hijack this one?
I was a Ruby smoker for 20+ years too. Had a few cigars over the years but never really took to em.
Anyway, started vaping with very entry level things a couple of years ago. Didn’t quite do it for me but I could see the potential. Did some research and experimentation. Now I have a couple of more complex “mods”, build my own coils and have found a good source of juice (with nico or without) which ships in 3 days from the US. Have given up ciggies almost completely (about 10 in the last year at parties). Love a good vape though, and it’s not cured my nic addiction whatsoever.
Happy to provide more info via pm
I have far too many issues with Nicotine for smoking to ever be a ‘hobby.’
While some like a nice, expensive cigar while sitting back in a recliner and drinking whisky like a gentleman… Most of my smoking stories involve me huddled under a canopy in the wind and rain sucking down the cheapest cigarettes I could afford that day.
