    Cigars

    Any primal cigar smokers out there? I like to light up a good stogie once or twice a week, usually a Rocky Patel Vintage Second or JR Ultimate. Any changes in your cigar experiences since you went primal? I actually haven't smoked one since I went primal around a month ago but this weekend I will fire up a Rocky. If all goes well I might chase it down with a couple fingers of Scotch. Hey, we can't be good all the time!

    Don't feel too bad about the Scotch...it is a Respectable Middling Choice according to Mark Sisson: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/low-carb-alcohol/

    As far as cigars, yes. Padron Anniversary Pyramid's are my favorites. My "everyday smokers" although I don't smoke but once a week, are either Fuente's, CAO's or regular Padron (maduro's). I haven't noticed any real changes, other than not indulging but once a week with a nice Highland's Single Malt, typically 18 year old McClelland unless I run out, then it is Knob Creek Bourbon.

    Surprisingly, living in the USVI, I've found a WONDERFUL shop. The guy who runs it gives discounts on sticks that don't sell well here (usually good stuff because people come through here on vacation and just want a cigar for that special occasion, not real smokers) if you buy what he has left. I got some excaliburs that he's had in his humidor for 10 years (he keeps it at 70/70) that are fantastic(!) at 5 bucks a stick. He also carries Opus X which is pretty hard to find but he has the full line here. Says it took him 15 years to get them, which is actually a short amount of time for those amazing smokes.

    If a man has the right to self-ownership, to the control of his life, then in the real world he must also have the right to sustain his life by grappling with and transforming resources; he must be able to own the ground and the resources on which he stands and which he must use. In short, to sustain his human right. - Murray Rothbard

    Good stuff. I don't know why more girls don't smoke cigars, I think it's sexy.

    I promised myself a bottle of Cragganmore when I finally hit 199, very tasty. Only another ten pound to go and they're going fast.

    There are no good tobacconists by me so I have to buy my cigars online. Never had an Opus X, I hear they're excellent.
