    Nothing like winding down a day with a nice smoke.

    My current favorite is the La Gloria Cubana Series R #7. A nice 58 ring by 7, leathery maduro that tastes great. I call these "commitment cigars" because it takes about an hour and a half to finish. Not to be had on an empty stomach.

    Any others here into cigars?

    That's an excellent cigar to light up just after making the turn.

    I'm brand new to cigars. Just started the other week. So far i've ordered a mild body sampler from famous-smoke. I'm really liking the different tastes and the relaxation a cigar gives.

    Anyone got any recommendations on my first box of cigars for a noob?

    It really depends on what you like, and it takes time to figure that out.

    For me, I like the large ring sizes and longer smokes because they last forever. Also prefer the maduro and full or medium-full smokes. These can be quite heavy and not always a good taster for a first time smoker.

    Samplers are good, but you need to learn the brands a bit. I would suggest going to a local shop if available and asking for suggestions. You'll pay more, but they are generally pretty knowledgeable and helpful. Once you find a couple of favorites, buy them by the box online.

    Last night I enjoyed an El Rey Del Mundo Robusto Suprema, quickly becoming one of my "daily" type smoke favorites.

    So what are you regular smokers' favorites?

    You can get them in the Bahamas for about 6.00 each.
