    Oooh... I forgot about Maker's Mark... My wife got me a bottle of the Maker's Mark 46 (I think it is... It's in the other room and I don't feel like getting back up yet) and it's gooooood stuff.

    Makers Mark but I enjoy the cheaper Ezra Brooks every bit as much.
    No cigar but a Marlboro light instead.

    When I was in the UAE I decided to spring for some Cuban cigars. I wanted to try the best. I bought a box of expensive ones and tried one....I gave the other 11 away (to some very happy friends). I realized that day that I'm not a cigar fan.

    Bourbon I do like but I gave up drinking a few months ago to set a positive example for my kids. I guess I'm just an old fuddy-duddy now.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Back in the early 90's I happened to get a 'liberty call' in Hong Kong....... one of my activities was buying one or two of each Cuban I could find and try 'em out....... I was not impressed. I could not for the life of me figure out what people liked in those things...... until...... on a whim I tried one more, one of the cheaper ones and stacked in the corner under other more 'desirable' brands outta Cuba. It was the BEST smoke I'd ever experienced. I bought all 5 1/2 remaining boxes.

    I STILL kick myself for losing the couple of rings from those cigars I 'thought' I saved. I wish I could find some more of those. Oh well.

    Hummm...a burbon? George Dickel. Being American with Irish descent, also like Bushmills, but favorite is Tullamore Dew-smoothest ever tried. Cigars- first rate or even the 2nd's of Arturo Fuente. Best one ever tried (being from TN), a friend went on vacation to Hawaii and brought me back a single Royal Hawaiian Kona Coffee cigar...amazing flavor. This would have to be a rare occasion to partake of such, but just remember never drink and handle any firearm- that would be a grave accident waiting to happen. Be safe, have fun, laugh-enjoy and live longer.

    Never got into cigars, but a nice shot of Wild Turkey 101 with a little water goes down very nicely.

    Like you guys, for the most part I haven't been too impressed with most Cuban cigars. Back in the 90s when I was working a job near Tokyo I went to the Cigar Club International (near the Hard Rock Cafe) and bought 5 of each of most of the major brand Torpedoes. I ended up selling most of them. Their counterparts in the Dominican Republic (most of the original families fled their, same volcanic ash soil) make much better consistent smokes with a few exceptions.

    On the other hand a Romeo Y Juliet Churchill or Cohiba Robusto will be a great smoke everytime.

    I have been smoking cigars for about 17 years. When I want to really chill, I go out on my patio with a good smooth churchhill (I like to smoke a long time) and a good single malt scotch like Glenfiditch.
