Picked up this wonderful little habit back in the early 90s while living in Reno, NV. When Brew Brothers opened we'd go have a beer, enjoy a smoke and watch the short-lived Torcedores roll. Early on I spent time in the Tinder Box, and later Fumare, to pick Dion Giolito big brain regarding anything tobacco. During warm weather I'll reach for a cigar (roughly eight a week) and switch to a pipe in the winter. My wife also enjoys pipe smoking. Fortunately, the wife permits cigar smoking inside... IF, I air out the house, pick up my room and do all my homework. After purchasing my third DC humidor in less than a year it dawned on me. "I might have a problem and this is getting expensive!" In short order I corrected the situation switching from Spanish Cedar to polypropylene. Right now my go-to smokes are the Brazilia Gol and Brick House Maduros. For a yard gar I reach for a Milenario Mad. or an old label Supervisor Selection (2007). I prefer them med - full bodied Maduro wrapped, and currently tend just over 1500 sticks. BOTL's friendly knowledgeable disposition might be a tight fit for this grumpy mooncalf.
