        I prefer a CAO gold, It is medium bodied and about a 40 ring size. 96 out of 100 in Cigar Afficianado mag.
        There's no substitute for strength,
        and no excuse for a lack of it!!

          I just smoke black and milds from time to time. Maybe try a Cohiba.

            Can't go wrong with a Punch or Macanudo. That is of course if you can't get your hands on a nice hand rolled cuban.

              LA Gloria are good but kinda strong if your not a regular smoker. Go with something Dominican or Nicaraguan. I like the Romeo and Juliets, or Punch {A little strong} Ashtons Aged Maduros are great, like smoking chocolate.
              If you want cheap but nice flavor go with the Backwoods sweet and aromatic. Clint Eastwood cigars. I guess you said special occasion, go to the local cigar shop, not a fast food conveince store either and ask the guy. H. Upmanns were alway nice and mild. I used to smoke tons of sticks but not as much. Tomorrow Iam gonna break out my last "Island" cigar sssshhh dont tell the Customs dept. My daughters birfday party, its gonna be 85 and sunny and I got 2 cases of beer and a coupla special smokes left.

                I recommend "no" cigar at all.

                  Acids aren't bad... they aren't very expensive, but give you a nice extended smoke.

                  Also macanudo's aren't bad either.

                    Romeo/Juliets, and Punch are very good cigars, but hands down go with a MONTECRISTO.

                      You probably "use" cigars in the same way Clinton did

                        But always remember.

                        The Betrothed

                        "You must choose between me and your cigar."
                        --BREACH OF PROMISE CASE, CIRCA 1885.

                        Open the old cigar-box, get me a Cuba stout,
                        For things are running crossways, and Maggie and I are out.

                        We quarrelled about Havanas--we fought o'er a good cheroot,
                        And I knew she is exacting, and she says I am a brute.

                        Open the old cigar-box--let me consider a space;
                        In the soft blue veil of the vapour musing on Maggie's face.

                        Maggie is pretty to look at--Maggie's a loving lass,
                        But the prettiest cheeks must wrinkle, the truest of loves must pass.

                        There's peace in a Larranaga, there's calm in a Henry Clay;
                        But the best cigar in an hour is finished and thrown away--

                        Thrown away for another as perfect and ripe and brown--
                        But I could not throw away Maggie for fear o' the talk o' the town!

                        Maggie, my wife at fifty--grey and dour and old--
                        With never another Maggie to purchase for love or gold!

                        And the light of Days that have Been the dark of the Days that Are,
                        And Love's torch stinking and stale, like the butt of a dead cigar--

                        The butt of a dead cigar you are bound to keep in your pocket--
                        With never a new one to light tho' it's charred and black to the socket!

                        Open the old cigar-box--let me consider a while.
                        Here is a mild Manila--there is a wifely smile.

                        Which is the better portion--bondage bought with a ring,
                        Or a harem of dusky beauties, fifty tied in a string?

                        Counsellors cunning and silent--comforters true and tried,
                        And never a one of the fifty to sneer at a rival bride?

                        Thought in the early morning, solace in time of woes,
                        Peace in the hush of the twilight, balm ere my eyelids close,

                        This will the fifty give me, asking nought in return,
                        With only a Suttee's passion--to do their duty and burn.

                        This will the fifty give me. When they are spent and dead,
                        Five times other fifties shall be my servants instead.

                        The furrows of far-off Java, the isles of the Spanish Main,
                        When they hear my harem is empty will send me my brides again.

                        I will take no heed to their raiment, nor food for their mouths withal,
                        So long as the gulls are nesting, so long as the showers fall.

                        I will scent 'em with best vanilla, with tea will I temper their hides,
                        And the Moor and the Mormon shall envy who read of the tale of my brides.

                        For Maggie has written a letter to give me my choice between
                        The wee little whimpering Love and the great god Nick o' Teen.

                        And I have been servant of Love for barely a twelvemonth clear,
                        But I have been Priest of Cabanas a matter of seven year;

                        And the gloom of my bachelor days is flecked with the cheery light
                        Of stumps that I burned to Friendship and Pleasure and Work and Fight.

                        And I turn my eyes to the future that Maggie and I must prove,
                        But the only light on the marshes is the Will-o'-the-Wisp of Love.

                        Will it see me safe through my journey or leave me bogged in the mire?
                        Since a puff of tobacco can cloud it, shall I follow the fitful fire?

                        Open the old cigar-box--let me consider anew--
                        Old friends, and who is Maggie that I should abandon you?

                        A million surplus Maggies are willing to bear the yoke;
                        And a woman is only a woman, but a good Cigar is a Smoke.

                        Light me another Cuba--I hold to my first-sworn vows.
                        If Maggie will have no rival, I'll have no Maggie for Spouse!

                        -THE END-
                        Rudyard Kipling's poem: The Betrothed


                        We are the thin blue line
                        between you
                        and all the money in the world.

                        And no you can't have any.

                            Here's a couple of verses that advocate drinking alcohol.

                            "Wine, which cheereth God and man."

                            "Wine that maketh glad the heart of man."

                            "Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more."

                            Song of Solomon 5:1
                            "I have drunk my wine.... O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly."
