What's your favorite to smoke on the course?

I have two I smoke on the course:

Front Nine: Partagas Black Label Maximo (the appetizer)

-Like an IV of expresso...an eye opener if you still got sleepy disposition

Back Nine: La Gloria Cubano Series R (the asskicker)

-not a cigar for beginners...this will either put smile on your face or make you hurl

Re: Calling out cigar smokers...

I do not really have certain cigars for the course. I usually just open up the humidor and pick out about 4 or 5 to take with me. Some of the one I have enjoyed on the course are Punch Rare Corojo, Padron (many sizes), Hoyo Excalibur 1066 and Hoyo Dark Sumatra, just to name a few.

Re: Calling out cigar smokers...

Personally, I don't like smoking cigars on the course as I never feel like I get the chance to relax and enjoy them. But I prefer Rocky Patel Vintage (90 or 92). Too many people I know have smoked these and swore they would never have anything else again. I also enjoy Fuente Chateau Fuente Maduro and CAO Italia or Brazilia.

I like a mellower smoke - Montecristo No. 2 is my favorite.

Re: Calling out cigar smokers...

I love my cigars. Have a nice humidor, and I keep it stocked. I prefer Padron, Excalibur, and El Rey del Mundo.

Never smoke on the course, though. First, we play early, and I can't do cigars at 6:00 am. Second, I'll go with Ogg. I just don't get the enjoyment I get when I sit down with a nice cigar and a single malt scotch and relax.

Re: Calling out cigar smokers...

I feel a bit left out. I've never puffed a cigar before. Am I missing something - a lot of guys seem to do it?

Although I don't think I'm manly enough to smoke a cigar! :)

That's what get's me up in the morning of a round and keeps me going...Even though we are the first off in the morning, we play at a leisurely pace that allows me to enjoy the cigar. I usually light up on the putting green...

The only other time I smoke a cigar is when I visit my local steakhouse and we light up outside in the patio after dinner...

Don't feel left out. I think it actually takes a while to get some enjoyment out of them. Years ago, I would smoke them just when I was hanging with my buddies, a couple of times a year. A few years back, I had one and really enjoyed it so I picked up some more and realized it was something to enjoy every once in a while.

My suggestion to start - get a Romeo & Julieta Cedro #2 or go to a local shop and ask for something mild. Try it and see what you think.

Fisher,

Any preference on the single malt? I have tried a large number, including Macallan 25 year old. I enjoy Dalmore, especially their cigar malt. I found a reasonably priced single malt called Lismore recently and was surprised how good it is. Got a good review online too.

But the cigar malt is PERFECT with any type of smoke. I highly suggest it.

Definitely, start out on the mild side. The R&J is a great choice or try any mild Arturo Fuentes. I didn't think I would enjoy a nice smoke after a hearty dinner, but my friends and I really get a chance to appreciate the quality of the cigar(s) . A good cigar is a good balance (a pickup) to the digestion of a good meal (a downer) and the nice warm kick of a cigar adds to the good time.

Re: Calling out cigar smokers...

Really, anything. If it's first thing in the morning then I usually like something lighter like an AVO or Ashton. Otherwise my humidors are stocked with Punch, Padron, Bahia, Ramon Allones and many more.

Re: Calling out cigar smokers...

Ah! A great subejct!!! For me, on the golf course, a short smoke is a better idea...so the Monte Christo No. 5 is just the right size, lasting only 3 holes max....but the best smoke for me after a round, is the Ramon Allones Special Selection. It's a robusto in size, and draws like an open door. here, we only smoke Cuban.

Re: Calling out cigar smokers...

I like Sancho Panza's - for the money they are superb IMHO, of course cigar taste is as individual as food taste. Also like CAO Camaroon's the Toro in particular.

Good man. No mild smokes for you. I'm a bold cigar man myself. My current favorite stick is La Flor Dominicana Double Legero Chisel. I do like the Series R alot.

It took a bit of time for my constitution to enjoy the Series R, but after getting use to the rush it gives I was fine. I'm going by the cigar shop today and I think I might look that stick up...Thanks for the heads up...
