I certainly missed the boat of CIGAR AFICIONADO's profile. I'm 51, not college educated. Income, $15,000 a year. Net worth, the clothes I wear. I'll be lucky to pay the bill for my subscription. But I enjoy and love cigars and no other tobacco products. Good luck.
Editor's Response: You already possess the only thing that really matters to qualify to subscribe to CIGAR AFICIONADO--a true love of cigars.

While on a trip to the Caribbean four years ago, I purchased a couple of Montecristo No. 2's as an experiment. I lit up on the beach one balmy evening after a particularly satisfying meal and delighted to a whole series of new and exhilarating sensations as I sampled this fine Cuban cigar under a blanket of stars, enveloped by a sticky-sweet aroma of the tropics that mingled to perfection with the fine sweet complexity of my smoke ... and all at once I was hooked--smitten is more like it, for indeed I was, and have been in love ever since.
Like any young man fully in the throes of love, my infatuation for cigars has turned into something of a passionate obsession, as I search out the very best of the quite extensive variety of cigars still available in this country from places other than Cuba, but I fear I shall always have that place in my heart reserved for "first loves" for that splendid moment in time on that beach, lighting up that Montecristo No. 2.
