No smoking lounge near my place (our tobacco legislation makes it impossible to do so, unless you're one of the 7 "grand-fathered" lounges in the province), so winter is mostly aging time, rather than smoking time.

 

Sometimes thought, when the weather is nice (between -5°C and 5°C), I'll go around town and take a walk, and I keep a stash of smaller vitolas for this very purpose. Something around 4" in length and 40-42 ring gauge.

We have a heated sunroom where we can smoke, although the air can get thick, even with the air filter we have running in there. Of course, most B&M will have smoking lounges/chairs for customers, and paid memberships if you want to hang out away from the riff raff like me who won't spring for a paid membership..

Good call on the smaller RG and vitolas for when the weather warms up to semi-tolerable levels.

I figured my only other options would be loungesor one of the few bars grandfathered here in NYC. Circa Tabac (now SoHo Cigar Bar) and Carnegie club have been on my list along with shops like Nat Sherman, Davidoff (formerly De La Concha), and Cigar Inn (was told the uptown location is better).

Club Macanudo should make the list too, though my singular experience there was on a slow Sunday afternoon sitting at the bar with a Basil Hayden's and one of their house pale ales and a Davidoff Especiale R. Had a good time though.

People have said to steer clear as it's generally populated by douche nozzles, but I won't rule it out completely. Plenty of time to check 'em all out. Thanks for the reminder.

Interesting, that is good to know. If you do ever go in there, please let me know how it is. Would like to know if I should steer away from there on future trips to NYC (though my experience was quite pleasant, which could have been because there were 6 other people there)

I like the shops, I don't get to Nat's much but when I do I really enjoy the atmosphere and service there. The new Davidoff on 6th Ave is ok, the smoking lounge is comfortable but a little limited in size however I never see it too busy. These two close fairly early ie by 6-7pm. Cigar Inn uptown is the better location if you want a more chilled/relaxed evening. It stays open late and it's BYOB!

Not been to Soho Cigar bar yet, Carnegie club is ok but pricey - I only really visit if friends want to go or colleagues want to as it's close to work. Been to Macanudo's a fare few times always on the work expense or someone else paying as it's $$$$!!! The vibe has been generally ok but expect wall to wall suits.

hmm talking of Nats I may have to pop there tomorrow since we're getting a dump of snow!! Been freezing my fingers off sitting by Central Park several evenings this week

The CoRo's I've tried from my '14 box have not impressed me at all. Need more time (I hope)

M'do1! Saw an aged box offered the other night from Rob in Oz but was scared at $550 and no prior experience. I've been wanting to try the MdO 2 but can't find those easy but have tried the MdO 4 which I got a couple of boxes.
post #10375 of 10897
Mdo 2 is the best of the bunch imho. I would just try a fresh box first.

Will report back on the d4s I got coming. Really tempted to get the 09s but they jacked up the price on them some more.

I moved up to Tennessee a few years back, so unfortunately I won't be able to take you up on that.. Enjoy though, Atlanta is a great town!

Cr@p Nat Sherman's is shut cause of the bad weather. I envy you guys in SoCal and Tennessee! Do I brave the weather later that's the question!Actually not as cold when it snows
post #10379 of 10897
V-I know you'll approve.PL Montecarlos in the sunshine after the snow storm. Bloody nice stick to start the day 👍
Had a nice '14 PSD4 last night outside of my building which have settled since the last one I had from the box in August.

Montecarlo's are incredible. Got a box a couple months ago. They are very good young. No experience with age on them
