I partake from time to time, especially when SWMBO is out of town, but I'm basically a cigar hack. I'm a robusto ho, Partagas Serie D #4, Montecristo Edmundo, RyJ Exhibicion #2 are currently in the ol' humidor. For 'domestics' I've been going with some Mayorga Gorditas and recently got a bundle of Flor de Oliva Maduro Torps which is a bit longer than my usual smoke, but a great bargain at < $2/stick IMO.

Once a week, increasing exponentially as the distance from SWMBO increases. But if I go two or three weeks it doesn't bother me. I'm still a hack. I approach cigars the same way I approach wine...if I like it I drink it, and if I don't I don't, hints of black currants, alpine grasses, and old leather be damned.

I'm more of a partigas no 6 kind of guy. Small, enjoyable. I don't need a stogie that lasts for an hour. I really like my pipes though. I don't have as much idle time as I once had to enjoy them but the taste and smell of a nice cherry cavendish comming from a Savinelli pipe is heavenly.

Same here, when SWMBO is not around. They can take the joy and serenity out of it, can't they.

I would have to say that my favorite is the CAO Criollo and MX2. A friend of mine is a big cigar smoker so there is never a shortage!!

I don't smoke them very often, but the best I've ever had is H. Upman. Nice and mild.
