No time to inventory them, but here is a peak into my big humidor.

Please post your experience with the Shark. I won't get a chance to enjoy my first until Christmas.

Recently (maybe 3 months now) picked up cigar smoking as another hobby from SWMBO's younger brother. At first, I tinkered around smoking some of his 'premium' but flavored cigars such as those from Drew Estates or CAO Flavours (some of them I actually enjoyed or still do from time to time - I know this is probably heresy, but oh well), but he is also into good 'natural' flavored premium smokes too and I have been expanding my palette to many of these as well - the brands mentioned within Arturo, Romeo, Macanudo, Hoyo de Monterey, MonteCristo, etc. I am by no means an aficionado, but I've been studying the 'art' of smoking , reading about it a lot, and buying 'premium' cigars now for a couple months. I have a lot to learn, but that's why I love this thread!

I picked up a 30 or 40 (?) capacity humidor that I easily have nearly filled by now. I'd buy another one, but I'd just spend more money filling it and I only have a few smokes per week. In any case, it's definitely another fun (and expensive - even though I try to keep my smokes in the $3-$8 range right now) hobby... but I enjoy reading this thread as I get into it. Great suggestions and some good knowledge to be had.

Some of the smokes (in the price range I mentioned before) I've had over the last week or two include the Macanudo Gold, Oliva O and V, CAO Cx2, and the Hoyo de Monterey Excalibur Maduro (this one was pretty strong for me, but enjoyable!).

I like the Cusano Paired Maduro,
also ordered from Thompson to get the humidor,
and got 100 "fishing cigars"
Also VSG,Hoyo, and occasionally a macanudo,but in my opinion they
may be overrated.

I have recently been trying to expand my choices in my small(20) humidor. So I went ahead and ordered this. I figured, hell why not.
While I'm at it who's got a good suggestion for a full or medium-full cigar.

A good choice

My favorite is Hemmingway Short Story

More money but so good


Also, there is a new cigar shop 1 mile from my house. They also sell wine, cheese and beer(BMC). So I took the owner a Rouge Mocha Porter and a North Coast Stock Ale and told him to pair those up with some big cigars. He's trying to find the distributor now
