View Full Version : Hello Friends!!!

My name is Jerry and I live across the pond in Chicago. I have been reading this forum for several weeks now and decided to sign up. Deano, I commend you and the other members for providing an excellent forum and resource.

I have been smoking cigars for about 15 years now. I began during my time in the military. I was stationed in Tampa, Florida, which as you know, is the second biggest cigar city in U.S. after Miami. I have been hooked ever since. I am fairly new to habanos, however, but I must say, I now see the light!!!:rock:

I have learned a tremendous amount on this site, and hope to continue doing so, while making some good friends in the process.

Happy Smoking!

Hi Jerry
Welcome to our world.

It's great to have new chums from the US of A and in particular from the wonderful city of Chicago.

Say hi to Gene & Georgetti for me man, I'll get back there soon.

Hello Jerry.

Welcome, Sir!

My sister lived in Tampa for a number of years with her USAF husband but I don't think she ever smoked a cigar. Silly girl.

Blues city. Nice!

Hello Boss!
Thank you for the warm welcome. At the moment, my favorite smokes are: RASS, Partagas P2, D4, and the Shorts. As you can see, I am really liking the Partagas. In my opinion, the Shorts are phenominal. Alot of flavor in such a small cigar. In non-habanos, I like the Padron 1926, Tatuajes, and Felipe Gregorio Power.

I have a box of Juan Lopez #2 and El Rey Del Mundo Choix Supreme on the way. I have never tried those brands before, but I have heard some good things about them, so I thought I would give them a try.

What are your favorites, Boss?

Thank you all for such a warm welcome. I can tell already that we have a great bunch here.

Thanks for the advice Nic! I won't use that term anymore. I thought it was commonly used, my fault.

WN210, Thank you for saying hello. To answer your question, I was a K-9 Military Police Officer. I worked narcotics, explosive, and attack dogs. Hence, my nickname (jdawg). It has stuck ever since.

Hello Jerry,
Nice way to introduce yourself "hello friends".
Hope you have fun during your time here mate. There's a nasty rumour going around that cigars get discussed too:biggrin1:

Welcome and I hope you have fun. I know where those Military attack dogs go when they are retired. They prowl the streets of cardiff masquerading as hen parties.
