    Mmm, I really like the Excali's. And of course Padrons!

    I had a Rocky Patel vintage 90 on my 20th birthday, simply because I was born in 1990. I also picked upva DPG Blue.

    Arturo Fuente. I bought a couple of the shorter ones when I was in Ft. Lauderdale prior to going on a cruise. Enjoyed them on the ship and that's where I caught the cigar bug.

    So glad I did

  • My first was a cigar called Primera Isabella. It was sumatra, robusto. There's a shop used to be in Punta Gorda Florida and has since moved to North Port, Fl. The person who owns it has his own company called Los Nietos Cigars. As of now (I havent been there in quite some time) he has 2 labels; Primera Isabella and Luca Del Toro. I like the Isabella much more than the other.

    Outside of swishers or Phillies or white owls or some such...it was a bunch of unbanded things from a local B&M. There were several other gifts or unbanded cigars I remember smoking but I have no idea what they are. When I got into cigars seriously and recently, the first known stogie was a Perdomo Lot 23 last spring/summer.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.

    Macanudo from a gas station when I turned 18, I think almost to the day, don't remember if it was my actual birthday or not.

    My first was some really dried-out torpedo with a picture of a farm or lady on the band. I don't really remember. It was just given to me when a buddy of mine and his wife had their second kid. It was really dry and reminded me of campfires growing up. Before the nostalgia wore off, and wanting to relive some of that from time to time, I somehow found this site and got a CCom house blends robusto sampler and the first I had from that was a Purple label.

    Davidoff tubo of some sort my buddy picked up for me before the club in my party days. Sadly I knew noting about cigars at the time and it ended up sitting in a desk drawer till I was bored at work one day. It must have been months later. Here's the kicker I smoked half of it put it out and fired it up again hours later. If only I knew!!!! Haha

    From a Perdomo sampler pack, some robusto that I did not like. I still have a problem with that brand...one day I will try them again.

    Swisher Sweets cigarillos back in my youthful days. Didn't even know there was such a thing as a premium cigar. My gramps was a white owl man. But fast forward 20+ years latter and I walk into a liquor store humidor and picked up some kind of Punch not sure what kind. Never thinking this was going to be a turning point in life.

    hahahaaaa perdomo is a good budget stick...most have lots of spice up front nothing in the middle and more spice at the end. But some are actually pretty good and for the money....well some are good lol

    RyJ Churchill en Tubo I got for Christmas. That was a damn fine cigar, enough to make me a professional hobbyist.

    Cuban Cigar Factory house blend I bought from the Del Mar fair.

    Probably a "Tueros". No idea if they even make them anymore. Either that or an ISOM R&J Tubo. Not much selection in a small town then or now. Had a Cohiba sigloII around the same time. Not sure which of those really got me started....it was such a long time ago.
