If this is the Lounge, it needs a smoking section. So it's time to pop open the humidor and see what we have.
I'm partial to Baccarats as a casual cigar and Padrons for a fine smoke. I recently tried some Acids for variety and loved the aroma.

A soft answer turneth away wrath. But flaming is a lot more fun.

I've heard that this is not good for cigars, though it might be used if there was a problem with tobacco worms.
To completely ensure that no further larvae have survived inside the cigars, one might put the cigars into a freezer for a few days. However, close attention should be paid that the cigars are well protected from ambient aromas. After freezing, cigars must be defrosted gradually to prevent the tobacco leaves from cracking. Otherwise, cigars should never be stored in a freezer or refrigerator because of the overly low humidity levels!
Storing cigars in a refrigerator should only be considered as a last resort, until a better storage system is obtained. If you keep them in the refrigerator, place them in a zip-lock bag, or they'll absorb food flavors. Freezing is also not a good idea. However, if you freeze cigars, do not thaw them at room temperature. Place them first in the refrigerator until they have thawed and only then allow them to rise to room temperature.

Ha! That's excellent.

However, I know it's just a matter of time before I take a nice drive on a sunny day, roll back the roof and light up. Life is to be enjoyed.
I have cloth seats so I have to be extra careful when smoking in my 8.
My cigar of choice? Backwoods.
Excellent taste. Excellent aroma. And like the RX-8, they're an excellent value. And even if I had the surplus cash to afford a Maserati (and not just a MazdaRotary) I still don't see myself smoking Cubans. One of my brothers is into them, but they don't turn my crank like they do for him.
I get lots of enjoyment from Backwoods. I savor the taste of their aged Connecticut broadleaf wrap. And I get lots of compliments on how great they smell. They don't burn evenly, but at under 50 cents a pop, I can live with that. My ideal cigar would be a Backwoods aromatic made with long filler.
Come to think of it, the RX-8 is very close to my ideal sports car as well.
