Can you help me discover my past?
Hey i am Marty and new to the site and new to cigars. I am half Cuban, and after living my first 30 years as an Italian-American I have been wanting to discover more of my Cuban heritage. I can remember when I was just a tike how my grandpa would smoke his cigars in the evening in almost a spiritual way. As a kid i didn't get it when he talked about growing up on the island working on his dad's farm. But I always remember the way he lived for his evening smoke on the porch (it never was to be missed or rushed!) Sadly, I didn't have my very first cigar until I was in of all placed Iraq while I was there for 22 months. My grandpa had already passed away so I wasn't able to tell him I finally got part of what he enjoyed. I just placed my first order with cigar.com today and am working on trying out different sticks to discover that "stairway to heaven" that my grandpa seemed to expereince. My humi is pretty bare right now, but I am seriously wanting to develope a true diverse supply to enjoy and to share. Any of you seasoned "professors of smoke" have suggestions for a newbie? In lot of ways I am a blank slate, with a heart to share a passion I never understood.
