    Default “Arse about elbow”


    3 Not allowed!

    Ok here goes…..

    I do everything “Arse about elbow”

    Ive been a member since Jan 18 – a lurker and not a poster. I used the site before then when googling questions I had as reference etc. ive started posting now and learned a lot already.

    Anyway, im relatively new to cigars. I was gifted a large box of King Edwards when my 1st kid was born 21 years ago, I fell in love but kept them on top of a fridge and didn’t have 2p to rub together – they died and I had food to buy, so that was the end of that.

    About 10 years ago, I went to Amsterdam (calm down was with the wife) and while in a baccy shop for cigs, they had a massive selection of cigars. I bought a load of cheap Dutch cigars and a few Cubans. I literally just binned the Dutch ones but my love affair began then.

    To store the Dutch cigars (remember the King Edwards) I bought a humidor and started buying 2s 3s etc of Cubans when on holiday. I finally quit smoking cigs and treated myself to the Dutch cigars every now and then … there simply shit!

    I’m a Whisky collector, love a nice cigar with a nice malt but because my Mrs is so anti-smoking now, it’s a rare treat to burn one, even rarer cos I live in N Ireland (originally a Jock) and the weather is worse than Dutch cigars!

    Maybe twice a month at a push, I can either brave the weather – unless its summer or find a rare opening or grow a pair and have one (when her indoors is outdoors) ive plans to build a smoking shed – more of a point than necessity lol

    I fill my boots when on holiday and have 1 every day but im usually oversampling the Whisky and could be puffing on cow dung for all im aware.

    I don’t mind the wait for a puff or the wife’s anti cigar stance, I really enjoy them best when alone and at peace – makes it even better!

    So, ive finally decided to commit and start my journey as a cigar lover. Im happy to be finally posting and learning from you guys.

    ive only about a dozen Cubans and the usual suspects - so ill be reading a lot and more than likely buying a lot!

    Thanks for making me feel welcome already

    Welcome onboard from a fellow sufferer of a non-smoking, cigar somke hating wife! Haven't got the option to build a smoking shed (no garden) but luckily in Belgium we can still smoke inside the cafes that have smoking glass rooms, with their own extraction. Sure you'll find plently of info on here to aid your journey.
    NB: just to clarify, Dutch cigars are dry & don't need to be in a humidor. Before I got into Cubans, I did enjoy the Barmoral's but don't bother these days, even though they are really cheap compared with Cubans, 'smoke less, smoke better'.
