Newbie checking in

Hello All.

I wanted to say hi, and say thank you to everyone that contributes on this forum. I just started smoking cigars about ~3-4 months ago. Did some searching on the web for a place to purchase cigars online, as I am working currently in Iraq. (Not military, BIG BIG thank you to the troops here, I've meet some good guys). If you are ever at Al Asad Air Base send me a PM, I would be glad to share some of my sticks I have.

I am glad that I found Cigar.com. Quality, and great service! Plus the BOTL community from what I've read here is great! I am looking forward to becoming a part of it. Lots of helpful information here, that I have taken advantage of. Thank you!

When not in Iraq or traveling around, I hail from Livingston California (San Joaquin Valley).

Some of my favorites so far are: RP 90s, RP Decade, RP Sungrown, Man O War Ruination, AB Tempus Habano, and a few others. I like trying out different Maduros also. Still testing out any thing I can get my hands on. Really enjoy the COTMC for that!

Looking to do some trades in the future, and contributing to the community.

Thank you!

    Welcome to the group
  • Welcome to the best damn place on the net. I got a civy buddy there, last name Cave. Do you know him?
    "There's three parts to making a great cigar. There's the science and the know-how, the experience. There's the art, which is the judgment call, that feel that you know exactly what to do. But there's something else: the inspiration. And I consider that very spiritual."

    Sweet idea I forgot I have a few resting that I needed to revisit. Also if you can spare the extra cash I would say try Camacho Triple Maduro or Padron 1964 Anny Maduro. Both are in my top 10.

    Welcome Spanky! Glad to have you around. Also if youre digging on Maduros, give the CCOM Brazilian label a whirl. Superb stick at an unbeatable price. I was in Al Asad almost a year ago to the day. The sand storms are EPIC!
  • Thank you Everyone for the welcome!!

    Which Humi do you have coming and let us know if you need more recommendations. This group has turned me on to some great smokes.

    I looked at that one on another site I think. They advertised that it would hold up to 15 boxes or something crazy like that???? The pictures don't do this thing justice for how big it really is I guess. Nice choice.
