    Cigars and pipes?

    After a great meal is there anything better than a long relaxing smoke?

    Perhaps some adult beverage or an espresso to accompany it?

    Lets hear from you!

    personally I prefer petersons, the bit is just very comfortable to me. of course they were also my first nice pipe.

    i always have trouble finding local sources for fresh tobacco, I HATE smoking dried out old stale tobacco. I'd rather just not smoke.

    haven't picked up my pipe in almost a year

    Jim, aren't those Cuban sticks illegal in your neck of the woods?

    I'm only an occasional cigar smoker now, but here are some of my favorites:
    Cheap, basic smoke-DeNobili
    Short smoke-Trinidad Reyes, Partagas Culebras
    Medium long smoke-Partagas Series D No4, Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure #2
    Long time smoke-Montecristo A, Partagas Lusitania

    Never took to the pipe, too hot on my lips and I feared for my wine-tasting palate.

    i'm a big fan of GL Pease tobacco, particularly the Maltese Falcon. i used to blend my own, but Pease does a better job than i do. i have a bunch of pipes, old and new, handmade and factory, but my plain 50s GBD billiard is probably my favorite. i've smoked a lot of university flake in that pipe. cigar wise, i'm all over the map. i've been working my way through a box of early 80s Bolivars, lately. really tasty.
