Hello From Chicago


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

New to the forum, I thought I would introduce myself..My name is Manny from Chicago. To break the ice (I am a teacher for secondary "high school") so we do ice breakers, I thought I would post my favorite stick...

My Favorite Habano is a Montecristo 2

What'a yours!? Make and model :)

Welcome Manny, Montecristo #2 of certain years are quite delectable, but with so many great tasting cigars it's hard to narrow down to one or 5...lol

What part of Chicago? I reside in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago, Hoffman Estates specifically. 

Either way welcome!

@TheMonk thanks for narrowing it down. I just got a 10 pack of Mag 50's that I am going to let sit for a while. I can't wait. I think they are from '14.

@alozano87 I had some wonderful Monte's more recently. I should have said what are your favorites at the moment. 

I reside on the South Side of the city. South Chicago is the neighborhood. Thanks for the welcome! Have you found a smokers lounge that you enjoy in or around the city? I have had no luck.

Thanks for the responses,

You know I've been wanting to at least stop at Biggs Mansion to check the place out, but I think it's a ritzier place and I may not feel comfortable rubbing elbows with the elite of Chicago lol! Looks like a cool place though. I don't frequent too many places, there's one by my house that is relatively quiet and friendly. I've actually been kicking around the idea of making a "man cave" style shed, with half of it storage and the other half finished, insulated and  heated/cooled just to hang out because the wife is not too keen on the cigar smoke. Anyways just a thought at the moment.

@alozano87 it's all good. I never had an E#2, I must add it to the list.

lol you know as a lowly southsider ritzy is not usually where I am either. It does sound like a cool place to check out at least once though.

I am a newlywed (November 19, 2016 is still newly wed right) well I am starting to build my own man cave/smoke room/entertainment spot since we just moved into the house. It is a work in progress. My wife will make me get an air purifier soon enough, I can feel it!

Chicago aint so far away greetings. Glad you found FOH. My current attainable favorite is the H. Upmann Magnum 46. All time favorite is the Por Laranaga Asia Pacifico (torpedo)
