Hello all, my name is Kyle and I’m a new cigar smoker from Ohio. First let me start off by saying that I hope I posted this in the correct place. I ended up falling down the cigar rabbit hole mainly because I’m an accumulator of expensive hobbies such as shooting/reloading, film photography, vinyl records, 3D printing, and now whiskey, so cigars just followed the whiskey naturally.

When I made my first purchase a little bit over a month ago I had no idea what I was doing. I bought the Gurkha Churchill sampler from cigars international, a $25 Rockwell quad torch, a $20 guillotine cutter, and started researching on YouTube.

In the month since I’ve bought and seasoned my first humidor and smoked 6 of the Gurkhas along with two Alec Bradley Tempus Maduros, a Drew Estate Acid Blue Kuba Kuba, and a CAO Flathead V770. I enjoyed all of them with the exception of the Acid being just too sweet.

I think I’m really going to enjoy this hobby and I plan on hanging around the forum and learning what I can.

    Welcome  @KyleM1990. You will learn a lot from this crazy group. Many of them just got released from some sort of facility or another. But they are harmless as long as they take their meds.
