Back in the days, my pop was bringing Cohibas back from Cuba I have a liking for Sieglo No5, not too long to smoke and not too small either.

Should I call myself a smoker, and a regular one at that if my record states 1-2 cigars a year?

Ditto...!

I'm pretty vanilla in choice, tend to smoke Cohibas over anything else. The occasional Partagas and Hoyo de Monterrey. Not a fan of Romeo y Julietta though.

I mainly smoke Por Larranaga. At most maybe once or twice a week. Partagas and Hoyos are staples.

I can't justify Cohibas though, they're...rather expensive for what you get and if you're getting them young they need too much age sadly.

But then again, I'm too busy to smoke mah humidor.

Romeo y julieta is where I stand - never tried a cohiba though but might have to buy a couple of cigars this weekend and take them up to norfolk when I go next week to visit the family, me and the old man set the world to rights over a smoke and a drink (or three)

The only RyJ cuban I ever liked was the Churchills.

Cohibas aren't too bad, but I stick to Por Larranaga. Or some montecristos.

RyJ Corona's for me normally - but they are pricy.

Have had other cheaper brands and had montecristos as well in the past - been ages since i've had a good cigar.

DAMN YOU I WANT A CIGAR NOW

I don't smoke, but I love the smell and paraphernalia of cigars and pipes (whereas cigarettes: yuk). Needs the company of a good spirit though.

ive always enjoyed the occasional slim hamlet cigar, they are the only cigar i have ever tried.

I'm interested in trying a decent cigar but don't know where to start, any tips on what would be good to try and any decent online shops to order from?

A hamlet has nothing on a Cuban cigar. You could have a look at tomtom.co.uk if you want to get an idea of the different brands, prices, and accessories. If you're anywhere near London you could always drop into their shop for a chat and advice.

The Trinidad Robusto Extra is one of my all time favourites, but my usual go-to is the RyJ Petit Julietta, a nice light smoke that only takes 15-20 minutes.
