If you knew someone who was just getting into cigars, what would be the 3 informational things you would advise him of? For me it would be:

1. Don't be afraid to try different cigars, so you can see what you like.
2. Don't smoke you cigar to fast, it will make the cigar bitter.
3. Get a quality humidor to store your cigars in.

4. When you think you know the size of the humidor you want/need...get one 2 sizes larger.

Normally lighting and proper storage are the most common discussions that I have with new enthusiasts.

Save the bands from a good cigar and put it on a baccarat when you have company. They'll never know the difference..

the only thing better than a Gurkha is a counterfit Gurkha

I use to smoke Baccarats all the time. Are Baccarats better than Gurkhas?

Not to listen to Jay! lol

I would say try a cigar more than once, unless it just is plain horrible... And def get a humi two or three times the size you may think you'll need
