What was the very first cigar you smoked when you started to get into cigars?

If you have read my intro and "about me" post, you already know how I got back into cigars. My very first one that I smoked when getting back into this was a Macanudo 1968 Toro.

I was sitting on the small front patio of the house we had just moved into 2 weeks before. Ironically, I moved into the house across the street from the home I grew up in. This house I am in is an old neighbor of mine.

As I sat there and enjoyed the cigar, waved to a few of the old neighbors I know, looked around and took in the sounds and scenery, I realized what a wonderful time I was having.

It was then I said to myself, "I am home again" and smoking that cigar was just a little bit better.

Of course I spend a lot more evenings out there now, or in the "man cave", the garage.

So, whats your first cigar and/or story?.......

mine was a Fuente.....can't recall which one, but I was in college and man was it good, the flavor was so good, it was one of those cigars that make you say "now that's a cigar'', I must have gotten lucky and grabbed one from the B&M that had rested long enough and was in perfect condition to smoke......nothing like that first "cigar high"

If you F-up, man up, take responsibility for your actions:spank::spank:

Re: What was the very first cigar you smoked when you started to get into cigars?

first one i ever purchased, and when i first got into cigars, was an ACID 1400CC.
I prompty bought a bunch of singles from famoussmoke before i found puff, CI, cigar.com etc. and didnt know abotu "samplers" so i paid like $100 for about ~25 cigars, which actually averaged out not much worse than if i got the cigars in samplers, but still. it was a funny noob mistake. I just picked random ones to try haha

Fuente Double Chateau Natural. Still love 'em & still have about half a box left on hand and will buy another one soon. It was also my first purchase. I remember keeping the band and the green foot band and bringing it with me to a B&M to make sure I got the right one.

I do what the voices in my head tell me to.

It was a Don Diego Tubo circa 1993ish. I didn't know any better.

Man... I don't even remember. I think it was a Cuban I bought on a cruise ship. I'm certain I puked my guts out that night though.

Puff.com Rules - Please don't PM me for Cuban sources

Macanudo Hampton Court in a tube - not overly impressed but bought it at a B&M in Atlanta and that was the beginning of the slippery slope & my quest for the "perfect" cigar


I ain't fat! I'm just a little large for my size!
