I really recommend The Edge by Rocky Patel, or anything Gurkha makes.

I good source for reasonably priced cigars is http://www.cigarbid.com/ - it's like EBay for smokes


If the cigar thing doesn't work out, you could always get him a nice lighter, something engraved maybe.

A great source for cigar knowledge and whatnot is www.clubstogie.com . I almost exclusively post there now, as my intrests have shifted a great deal in the last seven years you folks have known me. Also, I HIGHLY discourage buying anything Gurkha. They are a botique blend, highly inconsistant, overpriced and are prone to discontinue and introduce new blends at the drop of a hat. I have never met a Gurkha I liked. Cigar that is

Hey, he actually gave me a link to something modest he'd apparently like (this is actually a "Nub" sampler, just under $30):

Nub Variety Sampler
http://www.cigar.com/cigars/viewcigar.asp?prod=SP-NUBASST1
This sampler includes six Nub cigars, one each of the following: 464 Cameroon, 466 Cameroon, 464 Connecticut, 464 Habano, 466 Habano and 460 Habano.
Who am I to go against a request so specific?   icon_smile These appear to be in the "medium-full" category if I'm reading it right.

Nubs are "okay" cigars. Unfortunately because of their short nature and large "ring gauge", they wind up burning rather quickly and might overwhelm a new smoker with a shotgun nicotine buzz.

Put simply, smoking a nub is like drinking fine wine out of a fire hose.

I've ordered, and the Stubs should be on their way to him tomorrow.  icon_smile Thanks for the suggestions and insights. I'll certainly return here if the need for cigars arises again.
