Cigar smoking is a pastime of mine that I discovered on a whim. Trying it for myself, I liked the flavors that a good cigar can give you. This thread is for us smokers on SBAF to hang out, talk about and post about what we smoked (hopefully with pics)! Now, I'm by no means a connoisseur of any sort (if I was a connoisseur in anything, it would probably be scotch whiskey, although I still consider my knowledge in that field to not be even close to that level). Take any mentions here from me of "wow I really liked this cigar" as solely my personal opinion. I don't have the most refined palette and just do this for enjoyment, just like whiskey. So without further ado, I'll start this off with my favorite cigar at this time: This is a Padron 1926 80th Anniversary Maduro. Very much recognizably a Padron in flavors. Great construction, very traditionally Nicaraguan; some salt notes, a decent helping of spices, some mocha and chocolate notes. Somewhat on the strong side in terms of nicotine, and a full-bodied smoke. Ironically, this is one of the first cigars I smoked in my life, and the first one I picked when I decided to "seriously" try smoking cigars and thus probably played a role in determining my tastes. I envision this thread as being more blog-style from me personally, but I highly encourage other SBAFers who enjoy lighting up a good smoke to come in and discuss tobacco! Maybe the thread should be renamed "ChaCha's Informal Smoking Blog"
