I love cigars and have since I was a kid. Smoked my first one back in the early 1950s. Yep, I was 6 years old but I had to try one of my Uncle's El Producto Esceptionales. El Producto still makes these after all these decades and I still enjoy them today along with many other hand made cigars that I usually purchase at JR Cigar in nearby North Carolina. One of my very favorites is Casa Blanca's Half Jeraboam which is a short (5inch) and hugely thick (66 ring!) fine smoke. I also enjoy Hoya De Montery Excalibur #1s. Years ago before the cigar fad occured I used to buy these by the handful at my local cigar store for about a buck a peice. Now they are around $7 each. Dang!
