Punch Grand Cru, Gloria Cubana, Auturo Fuente, - I prefer the maduro (dark) wrappers on all. The size of the cigar depends on how much time I have to smoke it.

I Like 5 Vegas
I like the 5 Vegas Series A. I like a lot of Victor Sinclair brands.

I like Sol Cubano for an everyday cigar. CI is down right now or I'd look up what I ordered last....I really like them. I'll look tonight, can't remember off-hand....

Size depends on time available, but I usually prefer a torpedo in the 52x6~ish area.

Coming out of cigarettes into cigars might be tough. I have never smoked a cigarette. The people I know that smoke both or used to smoke cigars tend to inhale a cigar. Which usually doesn't go well. ;)

There are a lot differences between cigarette and cigar tobacco. Below has been copy/pasted from Cigar.com Newletter from Aug 07 '09....

Q & A: Cigars vs. Cigarettes
Q: Do cigars and cigarettes share the same type of tobacco?

A: No, in fact they are far different. Cigars and cigarettes are completely different products grown in completely different ways and affect the palate and body differently as well. The tobacco grown for use in cigars is simply 100% tobacco. The leaves do not contain non-tobacco products and are naturally aged and fermented without having any extra additives or impurities introduced to the blend. Most cigarettes contain only about 50% pure tobacco with the rest of the blend consisting of chopped up stems, shredded paper, and left over tobacco scraps. Cigarette tobaccos are not fermented, which is another major difference between the two. When cigar tobaccos are cured and fermented, they lose much of their nicotine content and many of the unhealthy toxins or carcinogenic qualities associated with “smoking” in general. Cigarette tobaccos contain many of these impurities and many cigarette manufacturers actually add further impurities, such as nicotine, to give them more addicting qualities. In fact, cigarettes are made to cause addiction with no focus on quality or flavor whereas cigars are made to be a tasty, enjoyable experience and this fact can be proven when closely examining and then comparing the creation process of both.
