the funny thing about this whole cbg thing is i dont even smoke.
smoking kills, but some of them are yummy
I can hardly stand to go into a cigar store to get the boxes, but I do love the boxes so I go in. I went in one here near Douglasville GA and it about killed me. But I came out with 5 great Punch Gran Puro boxes.

I would like someone here to smoke lots and lots of Rum Runner cigars, so I can have the boxes. Please.
I've tried smoking cigars and never enjoyed it (except for cheapo Swisher Sweets...smoked 'em in college and made my first cbg from the box). I can understand the art of enriching your palette and tasting all the different overtones, but when I try to do it myself, it just tastes like an animal died in my mouth.

I had an expensive Rocky Patel given to me by a writer from a cigar magazine. I saved it for a CBG fest. When I tried to smoke it, I gagged.

Should I start with a mellow one first??? Maybe I'll just stick to my ritual cigarette before a gig.
I would LOVE for more people to buy and smoke Cigars in the RED or black Punch boxes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can never get enough RED or blacks.......
My customers like both.As do I.Since I know my customers are never wrong,,,,,,,,,I want to build more of each.
Lori , take note!!!!!!!!! LOL
I have recently had a cool good thing thats started happening in my shop. Some of my customers have started calling me back from home after they get home from their vacation, offering to find boxes in their area and ship them to me FREE of charge,
Now THATS a happy and satisfied customer, and I'm very lucky to have them.
I do both, make CBG`s and smoke cigars.
Pretty selective about the cigars in between though.
I don't smoke either, my first 2 box's came from my dad who had been storing old gun parts in the for the past 30+ years, he wouldn't let me have the one he had bullets in as a kid (1930's), he's keeping that one.
I must confess, I am a smoker, I love a good cigar too, but when its 30 below I don't have the intestinal fortitude to stay outside for the 30 or 40 minutes it takes to enjoy one. I need a man cave and I need it now!
I admit I love cigars, its definitely and acquired taste but it is also an art form in my opinion. I keep a 200 ct humidor stocked and my favorite brands are Rocky Patel, Camacho and La Flor Domincana, but I am always trying new ones. It very relaxing to sit back with a nice cigar and pair it with some cognac, scotch or whiskey. and I love them with some dark chocolate.
I used to be a cigar smoker. After 1/3 the way down the taste gets too much, too bitter. I only smoke my pipe tobacco now. Some great cigars however, in my opinion, are the al capone cognac cigarillos.
Acids rock! All I smoke when I smoke.
