I quit cigarettes in November and have since started puffing on cigars lately on weekends. Cubans are 11$ to 30$ at the local shop and I can't afford to smoke these every weekend so I have found these cigars called ACID cigars. http://www.acidcigars.net/

Acid Krush Gold Sumatra Cigars have been my favorite so far. They are very sweet but more refined then a swisher sweet with more flavor. Let me know if you have tried any other flavors worth trying

i buy most of my cigars from Cigars International (CI). when they have their Jambalaya...(normally 2 or 3 times a week (you have to check the site every morning)) ... you can get good deals plus free shipping... Joe's CI

if you like Acid, try their Cafe con Leche and their Opulence 3 cigars.... those are great...

I haven't given the ACIDs a chance yet but I might give one a shot now that you seem to enjoy them so. If you haven't tried them yet, JAVA makes some very nice cigars with a lot of vanilla finish to them. I've found they pair really nicely with both absinthe and bourbons sweeter finishes and hold up against a strong drink. Wouldn't recommend them with anything that doesn't have a dominant flavor of it's own though.

I used to smoke a lot of Acids when I quit smoking cigarettes. My favorie Acids are One, and Cold Tea Infusion. However, flavored sticks will get old after a while.


I'm currently a big fan of the Arturo Fuente Hemingway series, Oliva V series, the smaller ring gauges of the Cameroon Nub, and anything from Alec Bradley is pretty damn good too.

Just an FYI: (Is my colon OK?) Acid, Java, Natural, Casa del Sol, Ambrosia, Joya de Nicuragua, and Liga Privada are all made by Drew Estate. The latter two brands are not flavored and are some great cigars, with Liga Privada being the pinnacle of the Drew Estate line.

Happy puffing!

I am a bit of an ACID cigar fan, when I'm in the right mood. I recently tried the ACID Gold hookah shisha and was really surprised to find I don't like it at all. I'll give it another go in a month or two, but it's just not good tasting and a bit rough smoking even in a ice-filled Kahlil Mamoom 28" hookah. :thumbdown:

I wasn't aware ACID produced shisha. I'll have to hit my local Drew Estate rep up for some.

I've got some that's "gently used". I could send it to you gratis. Not my cup 'o tea, or bowl o' shisha. ;)

Acid cigars are a guilty pleasure, where one has to smoke them under a blanket to hide thy sin from God.

They taste great, but somewhere down the line they messed something up. The smaller ones seem to get really mooshy. I was also fairly unimpressed with a non flavored Drew Estate cigar I had years ago that made me question what those delicious oils are hiding in the tobacco. I ordered a sampler tin a few days ago to give them another chance, hoping its different now.

Triple Apple or Banana Split by Al Tawareg are some of my favorite flavors of shisha. Hookah-shisha.com is a good source for any looking to start off their hookah experience. If you are looking for a good cigar smoke, might I suggest the following brands: CAO, Montecristo, Romeo Y Julieta, and Rocky Patel Vintage. Personally, I love pipe tobacco, though. My favorite blend is Classic Samsun by McClelland. Nightcap by Dunhill and My Mixture 965 are also recommended. Happy trails. :thumbup:

older thread here but I thought I'd post. While recently in San Francisco with the girls I picked up Acid cigars because the girls wanted to smoke for the first time. I knew an Acid would go over well with the sweeter taste, and now they want to hang out and smoke more often.

Last night I had an absinthe and cigar night myself, good stuff.

Shabba got me turned on to a good chunk of the Gurkha line of cigars. I float all over in terms of brands and sizes, but style-wise, I know what I like at least.

Java by Drew Estate is another winner in the realm of flavored cigars. :devil:

Just got into these a bit, bought one for a friend last year and enjoyed the smell, so couldn't resist when I happened by the cigarillos in a smoke shop with a couple extra bucks in my pocket. It was the Blue Connecticut flavor and though I've limited my smoking to the occasional hookah, I found them go be an easy smoke. Since then I've tried the One and Hawg, neither of them were bad (although the One left an odd aftertaste) but I definitely prefer the smaller blues.

My friend also suggested I try a montecristo, so I picked one up and will give that a try in the near future.

When I began smoking cigars I chose the Acid Kuba Kuba. It was not before long that I noticed construction issues with cigars made by Drew Estate. I then started smoking more traditional (real cigars) and have never looked back. I even found construction issues with cigars in the Liga Privada line which was quite a disappointment. I like Kristoff cigars especially the Ligero Maduro and the Sumatra, as well as Arturo Fuente Opus X. Currently I am smoking the Perdomo Habano Maduro.
