Once every few moons I will have a cigar while sitting on the deck. And a glass of scotch or port. And an espresso afterwards.

What you guys up to?

I've never followed a Cigar and Port with coffee, and it's been a while since I've had either. But spring is here........

Do whatever you want to do man.

I do have other stuff in my minibar - including a couple of bottles of cachaca, which come handy in summer when making caipirinha... But really scotch and porto are the winners.

Mauricio, I'll be around shortly :)

But for me, I'm into laxing outside with a Cigar and a nice glass of Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix.

I thought I might see mention of an e-cigarette or two in here. :)

Have enjoyed the odd cigar in the past, but not for a number of years. Still fond of the odd Single Malt or a Port or two. A good Pinot Noir goes down well too.

Enjoy my coffee black and as often as possible.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

freitasm: Well, I don't smoke cigarettes. As I said the cigars are a thing that happen every once in a while.


I used to be a smoker. Wish I tried a cigar when I was a smoker. :). Too dangerous to try now.... Still like the smell of a cigarette.



Anyway, for me it's a nice strong rum and coke and something good to watch on the telly. Simple pleasures.

Nice Mauricio. I could bore with the aquired knowledge I picked up working for a tobacco company... may I ask what cigars take your taste buds ?

Im 7 weeks smoke free and plan to celebrate 15 weeks with a cigar and whiskey (but somehow I dont think the wife will approve just yet).

I have 17 bottles of single malt Scotch in my pantry (different ones!). A wee dram on cold and windy night is a singular pleasure and I like to be able to have the range of styles to choose from.

It takes me a very long time to drink them (more than one of them is over 7 years since purchase!) because by NZ standards I am more or less teetotal, consuming on average one small bottle of beer in a month or the equivalent. It is at least 10 years since I was too inebriated to, for example, legally drive I would say.
