The Black Cloud

I became interested and started smoking cigars when I was about 18. I was a johnny-come-lately at the end of the cigar boom in the 90's. Some of my first smokes were drug store quality Dutch Masters and Phillies! My first box order was a box of Macanudo 2nds. My first legitimate box was a box of RyJ Belicosos. Since then (oh, about 12 years) I smoke on average a cigar a week. I've just recently started exploring smaller manufacturers. Some of my current favorites include: Montecristo, LFD, Padron, Partagas, Pepin, and HDM.<br />

Born and raised in L.A., I went to college, got my degree (film) and am currently unemployed, heh. Single dude, no girl, no money. I was a hardcore Dodgers fan when I was young, became a hardcore Lakers fan in my teens and early 20's, and since then have become a diehard L.A. Kings hockey fan and a hardcore fan of hockey in general. I dig music (hard rock, metal, jazz), photography, camping, movies, writing, and watching TV. I'm also getting into craft beers big time. Some of my favs include Moylans Dragoons, Stone RIS, Schlenkerla Rauchbier, Unibroue Trois Pistoles, Gosser Dark, Guinness, and some black &amp; tans. I'm my happiest when I'm hanging with my buddies either at the bar (Timmy Nolans) or at the house smoking a cigar.
