Hi guys,

I'm new to the cigar forum and wanted to say hi. My name is GrouchoM and I'm from Texas. I've been smoking cigars for 3 mths and have a small tupidor of sticks. As a new cigar smoker, I'm still figuring out what I like palate-wise. I started wit Factory throwouts because they were inexpensive and have worked up recently to C&C toro maduro (which have a lot of flavor). I'm an unemployed student who was introduce to cigars by a buddy, but only got serious recently after having one on New Year. The brands I've smoked so far are nothing to write home about: Brioso, Bacarract, Sancho Panza, National, Cuban Seed, Casa de Bella and Punch.

Look forward to learning more about cigars and meeting more cigar lovers.

    Welcome aboard.  Most online vendors have tons of samplers in every category, which are usually cheaper than buying a bunch of the same cigar.  I'm sure you'll find which ones are your favorites after a few months of trying.  Check out cigar.com's sampler section

    Samplers are a great way to go or seconds.

    So, how does this work?  Best 5 cigars at Dawn or deliver his head in a bag? I'm game...or how about we act like we did something, but didnt.

      The only way to solve this, face off with ten lb sledge hammers in five feet of water   :)
