That's the spirit, mate!

Just so we're crystal clear: I will be sending out match information via private message here on CBid.
You can expect your giftee's address to arrive by Nov. 25th, though I aim to mail everything out on the 20th or 21st. Everyone, please keep an eye out!

Also, make sure that your Cigarbid inbox is not full! I have email addresses for most of you, but I'm super lazy and don't want to have to send PMs and emails.

Harvey, count me in. Will PM you with my info.


Preferences for anyone that cares:

RG 38-54 (wife questions sexuality with anything larger than that in my mouth)

Prefers a good Nicaraguan to CC's

Likes big, bold flavors and a big fan of pepper notes

Favorite brands at the moment are Padron, Tatuaje, Roma Craft, and My Father.

Not a fan of CT (unless it is of the fermented broadleaf variety).

I also don't like butterscotch, toffee and prefer milk chocolate over dark and white.( I'm mildly allergic to dark chocolate and white chocolate just isn't as good)

Don't forget sweet potatoes, just a sprinkle of black licorice twizzlers and combine absynthe, oozo, arak, and yager inside rusty barrel , shake for 20 seconds and send to Smokeyou. Repeat if necessary.

Nothing lemon- lime flavored either. Mountain dew is ok. Seriously as far as cigars go I like em as long as they don't taste like trash. So I hear.

There it is! We've got 37 people shipping just over 40 packages. That means we should see a total of at least 160 cigars mailed out by Secret Santas.

Gonna be a fun Christmas!

Starting to make the matches now. A combination of bad maths and incomplete information made my estimate of cigars sent quite low.

We're looking at a minimum of 215, not 160!


Keep an eye out, you should all have your matches in the next few hours.

Likes: 38-52rg. Mild to Full. SG, Cameroon & Maduro wraps. I smoke lots of AF/Ashton, Padron, My Father & assorted ISOMs.

If there's any adult beverages involved, Highland Single Malts & Kentucky Bourbons.


Dislikes- Super spicy smokes, jawbreaker rg sizes, Islay whiskies, coffee.

Late to the party but if I get matched up, I'm really starting to get into dark, oily maduros like the Camacho triple maduro. Just recently I had the Punch Rare Corojo Champion and loved it! More than happy to be a rescue Santa too! I'd rather make someone's day than receive a gift because my life is pretty great all things considered, and I'd like to pay things forward. My hope is to bring a smile to someone's face whose either had a rough day/week/month, even if it's for an hour, with a nice cigar to forget about life for a while.

GO BLUE!

I like medium and full smokes. Usually go for 50 rg and under. Not a big fan of Connies. Favorite cigar of all time is the noella Reserva. Like bourbon and shine.

I like 54 rg and under. As do most others, I like AF, LP, Tat etc. I am not too pick. I don't smoke a ton so I go for quality over quantity. I lean toward a medium smoke but am I afraid of stronger.

Other things I like. The Red, Bengals, Tequila and USAF items.
