what cigars to smoke?>

wmaxhamwmaxham Posts: 80
iv tried a few cigars, but only being 18, i have tried only so many??
being at such a young age, i enjoy 2 things when smoking a cigar, one is the taste as the majority of you enjoy. and the other is the euphoric mood im put into with a strong...cigar. one of the best examples is a nub. if i smoke a nub without food or after another cigar, im just hit, its hard to walk and ur close to throwing up. for some reason i really enjoy that feeling? but dont get me wrong. i also enjoy a nice tasting cigar, one of the smoothest cigars iv had was the sapranos edition cigars, along with olivia series cigars, i asked the owner of tobacoo world in georgia, what is the strongest cigar u have that empowers a nub? he gave me a lancero called la flor dominica double ligero, now that was suposed to knock me on my ass. but i think because it was a lancero i had a tough time drawing smoke, as comared to the enourmous nub, but was i was told is what gives me the euphoric feeling is the ligero leaf? so double the ligero should be a punch to the face? well. it was a bit of a disapointment. so my question is. what is the big nasty that can beat out the strong nub? because untill theres a nub twice in length, its gona start taking 2 nubs to get into that state. soooo any suggestions to a cigar that can knock my socks off?

    camacho diploma.

    and if you can find em, El Cobre.

    if you can find lfd double ligero in a larger ring gauge then it might do the trick.

    how expensive would u say those are? and tobacco world is the largest walk in humidor in the south east. if it exists(besides cuban) its most likely there.
    now what makes a strong cigar strong?
    the ligero leafs? or the amount of smoke you draw?

    WOW, this place is 30 minutes from the house and I didn't know about it. Largest in the SE, I will have to check it out when I get home.

    I haven't had a nub yet but I do know one of the strongest cigars that I have hd and completely enjoyed was an Oliva V. The Soprano was strong but I didnt enjoy the flavor.

    lol. place is a beauty!
    prices are fair.
    selection is imacable!
    and i have a V and O on hand.
    iv smoked the V but i finaly gothold of there largest torpedo size.

    and a Nub is quite the beauty! short n stout lil bugger that lasts about an hour or so. i like the camroom best, then conneticut, habana isnt really my cup o tea.

    the strength depends on many things. Ligero is one of them, but a host of other things can influence it. this may help a bit:

    a well kept vintage 92 Rp is pretty tasty... hey anyone know about the casa fuentes from las vegas, my buddies swear they're the best but i havent tried one theyre only from vegas and well, i cant just fly there and back for a box of sticks... anyone know?

    I will second both these! Or if you want the same blend as the Diploma in a bigger cigar, smoke the 18/22 torpedo.

    I believe the camacho 1962 is full bodied smoke and may leave a buzz....again one of my favorites

    It isn't.. It's medium-bodied. But this is a wonderful, amazing cigar.. one of my favorites.

    yeah id say the 1962 is a med-full smoke. the dimplma is stronger. if you got a cigar buzz off of it then there could be a few factors.

    do you usually smoke mild cigars?
    how often do you smoke cigars?
    when was the last time you ate?

    im 18 and havent been smoking that long myself but if i might suggest a nice large don peppin. wont knock you on your ass but good spice and a nice euphoricness to it. and affordable then you could always have a nub before or after

    Fabulous construction, too. Felt good just holding this one. A great looking stick and the beauty is more than skin deep.
