I have my likes/dislikes/what I'm looking for on my profile. While I'm not expecting any of those it would be nice to have something along the lines.

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.

^ I'll echo what Dave is saying. I do like a variety of smokes - I'd also include Viaje and particularly Illusioine to the list - and if Santa wants to include a libation it would be fun to try a beer local to you.

I sure should have checked what I wrote before hitting enter twice. "I am not too picky", "but am not afraid of stronger"and "the Reds" should have been what was actually written.

I am not picky on cigars, though I tend to smoke more medium to full. Though others have their place when I'm feeling a certain way. Love sports, booze, and coffee too. I'm sure I'll be thrilled with anything sent my way.

I like medium and full smokes. 50 rg and under is preferred. No Gurkhas please. Whiskey, Scotch, and Bourbon always willing to try anything once.

It's pretty neat that we are able to do some additional "research" (aka recon) on our targets by looking at their past forum postings. I'm a-gettin' me some fine ideers...

It was also interesting to look at secret santas from years past. 2015, although it had fewer participants, looked epic in terms of the damage inflicted. http://www.cigarbid.com/...48309/Secret-Santa-2015

Minimum of a 5-er? I can't count that low... Good luck and happy holidays, everyone!

LOL. If I was I would be spending less on cigars. For sure mild-med is a great smoke too. Still enjoy a connie every once in awhile as well.

Two quick things:

First, let's have a round of applause for all the folks who signed up to be Rescue Santas! I don't think we'll be needing the service, but it is greatly appreciated nonetheless.

And second: I just want to say that I'm glad to see a wide group of forum members signed up for this. New members, founding members, and everything in between. Looks like a great bunch of people. (Which is why I don't think we'll need any rescuers.)

Alright, I'm gonna go back to packing.

Actually, one more thing. For the trivia nerds:

We've got folks from 23 states sending out packages. Indiana leads with 6 Santas.

I like med/full and full smokes. Any size I can smoke between 1-1.5 hours. I used to love Cohiba blacks but haven't had one in a few years. Melanio maduro and carb 660 have been my favorites in the last few months. Looking for stoogies with similar profiles or ones outside those you think I would enjoy. I'm a big scotch/bourbon drinker, love mixology to try to come up with the perfect old fashioned and good ipas. Just getting into skeet shooting maybe u can send me some pointers.

I enjoy the full spectrum of smokes, I am relatively new (some of you may have underwear older than me) but I am trying to broaden my palate. I have enjoyed everything from Undercrown shade to Oliva Melanio and everything in between. I really havent smoked a cigar over $3 that I havent liked. My interests are whiskey and gin as far as libations.

We did, thanks. Cooked 2 birds so we could send our son and daughter home with lots of leftovers. Learned my lesson last year.

While the final bird cooked, I hand-picked my secret Santa cigars and lined up my accumulation of goodies that will be accompanying them. Packing this stuff up is going to be interesting...

I hope your turkey day was a good one!

You shouldn't have posted that you are sending out tomorrow that will make easy to figure out who it came from that is why it is called secret santa put some clue as to who you are in the box and make them guess and don't post tracking or anything your a noob it's all good the fun part to me is to fudge with them to make someone else sent it
