Rediscovering your favorite cigars

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Case in point is a cigar that someone gifted to me for my birthday. It was a Romeo y Julieta Habana Reserve Churchill. I hadn’t smoked one in I don’t know how long, but it totally blew me away. So I began to think about that, which is what inspired me to write about this “trend.” It also stands to reason that the cigars you enjoy most are the cigars that have been consistently good for you over the years. So, if you haven’t smoked one in a long time, it’s so much the better when you light-up and get that warm feeling of satisfaction.

There are some cigars, like the aforementioned Romeo Habana Reserve that I wish I could smoke more often, but time and budget usually get in the way. There’s also the fact that if I smoked the same cigar everyday or every other day for that matter, I’d get bored, so variety is key.

Another cigar that usually does it for me is the Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 Flor Fina Maduro. Since these tend to sellout quickly I often miss picking up a box. But when I finally get my hands on one, I’m never disappointed. Moreover, I recently picked up a box of Conuco on CigarAuctioneer.com. I hadn’t bought a box since the Spring, and not only have they tasted as good as I remembered, but I think this particular box is even better than the last. And just last week I had a Rocky Patel Sun Grown Robusto, another cigar I hadn’t had in a while, and it was delicious.

I could go on ad-infinitum but I think you get the idea. Sure, many of us have our “everyday favorites,” but maybe it’s to our advantage to “take a break” from some cigars every now and then. Of course, that gives us time to discover some new cigars in-between.
