I am 40 years old and live in League City, Tx. I've been smoking cigars for about 10 years now. Some of my favorites include Padron, Hemingway maduros, as well as Partagas, Bolivars, and Monte's. I don't smoke as often as I used to, but when I do I want it to be something really good, so I tend to purchase cigars with a proven track record, but I still like to try new things from time to time. For the past 5 years I've been working in Physical therapy, whether practicing or in clinical research, specifically in the area of post acute brain injury. Currently I work in an inpatient rehab center in Southeast Houston.
My wife just recently gave birth to our second child, a beautiful baby girl. My wife and I like to travel and scuba dive, but with our expanding family it has become difficulty to do that on a regular basis. Unfortunately, she does not share my enjoyment of cigars, but nobody is perfect. To make up for the lack of diving, I've started a couple of small saltwater aquarium which is almost as expensive a hobby as cigars! I am also a big Texans fan & before that a long time Oiler fan, so basically I'm a glutton for punishment when it comes to football, but hey, we can't all be Cowboys or Patriot fans. ;-)
Right now my favorite cigars are probably the Party Short, PSD4 Monte Petit Edmundo, various Padrons, Triunfador, Mag 46's, Anejo's & the WOAM.
Wish list (realistic one)
Juan Lopez #2 (I've heard good things but have never tried one.
Cohiba Esplendido (a real one, not like the one I got in Mex.)
Wish list (pipe dream list)
Cohiba DC EL from 2004
I've done many trades, buys, a couple of sales, and the Secret Santa a couple of times which was a lot of fun. I don't post as much as I probably should, but I log on almost every day. To me this is probably the best cigar board I've run across and I admire the way things are done here. I've learned a ton of info. and have gotten the chance to smoke a lot of great cigars, too.
