Totally understandable. That doesn't seem like the kind of thing a person should be surprised with.

I hope the day will come when you tell the noobs how you used to smoke the infused ones only, but now your tastes have expanded to include non-infused cigars too.

I am willing to support your cause by trying an infused cigar. Us noobs gotta stick together. Which one would you recommend?

I like your prophecy better.

As far as infused recommendations, the cigar that finally convinced me cigars could actually be goood was the ACID Kuba Kuba. That and the Blondie are probably my two favorite ACIDs.

That said, I think I've decided my favorite infused sticks are the coffee-infused ones. The Isla del Sol is very good, and its price tag is the reason I ordered a box. (Only about seventy bucks for 20.) My favorite right now is the DE Tabak Especial Dulce, though it's a bit pricier than the Isla del Sol, so I only ordered a fiver of those. They're my "treat" sticks.

I think if you're looking to try an infused stick, you couldn't go wrong with any of those four, though I'm sure others would have additional recommendations.

Java mint was what brought me into the game, i have had the tabak maduro it was good, but it was like they dipped the cap in sugar.. And it stuck! I did have a few of the Nub cafe, and a lot of these unnamed vets still enjoy them, though i havent had one in a while.... I did see a seasonal i might try if i find a single.... Nub pumpkin spice!! What can i say... Im basic!

My girls' humidor is stocked up with javas, cao moon(somethings), kubas, and cherry bombs (I think they're called that).. The especially like the Java "mint chocolate" ones.

(I have no interest in smoking it, and I doubt it’d be wise to do so, but it smells wonderful!)

Just curious!
yes it is Tobacco common from Drew estate

Oh yeah--I forgot about the Nub Cafe! I haven't had the macchiato, but both the cappuccino and the espresso are very good.

I saw that pumpkin spice one, and there's another "holiday" one, too--the Winter Blend, I think--that looks pretty interesting!

Oh good gravy...I forgot we were heading into the season formerly known as autumn. It's turned into Pumpkinspiceumn.

Me? I boycott. If we don't resist the scourge that is Pumpkin Spice, we risk losing the other seasons too.

I am all about pumpkin pie. That is as far as my pumpkin-flavored indulgences go.
