First Cigar To Kick Your A**?

First one I remember clearly, cause it was my first cigar, a Punch Elite Natural. I smoked it in 15 minutes. As a matter of fact, I have no idea how I kept with this hobby because of how sick I got. Second, one was a Camacho Corojo, and the last one that made me sick was a Tatuaje Cojonu 2006, which ironically is one of my favorite cigars now.

Opus X. I had heard little about these when I fired one up on a less than full stomach. Loved the taste and puffed away happily until I started feeling a little green then :pu.

I now make sure I have eat a little more before an Opus!

Don't laugh, but it was a Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real. It was a corona, and I had an empty stomach. There was absolutely no resistance on the draw and even when I tried to sip it, it still was as if I was inhaling lungs full of smoke! I didn't throw up, but the buzz was so harsh I had to go lay down! I still have another one in my humi, but I'm gun shy as hell about smoking it! Been in there over a year now.

Litto Gomez without enough in the stomach. Didn't kick my ass but did make me feel a little wobbly and gave me a bit of a hangover.

I have had a couple of multiple cigar nights that made me like that as well. Did a Cuaba, Rass, Fundadore trifecta that put me into the spins a little. Since I'm not a regular to the dark side that snuck up on me a bit. :D

I've gotten a really strong buzz, most recently off of a San Cristobal, but I can't say any stogie has kicked my ass. I dread the first time but I don't let it hold me back.

I smoked a Oynx Torbusto when I first started smoking cigars. At about mid way through I had to sit it down at 1/2 point and go throw up.

VSG Spellbound. It had just been rated as one of the top cigars by CA in 2004 so I thought I'd give it a try. I didn't know what "full-bodied" and "strong" meant in cigars since I had only smoked Ashton Classics.

Happened to be shooting vodka that night too. Passed out from the booze, woke up 10 mins later from the cigar induced vomit.

After all these years I still don't like VSGs all that much (except for original release Wizards).

Opus x.....Man that was a bad one for me. I had a small little guy (#5) and it kicked my a$$ half way through. Needless to say I didn't finish the rest and am going to age some longer to see if that was the problem.

1989 while driving home from a ball game in New Orleans, I had a Hoyo Sultan, nearly made me puke by the time I got to the half-way point, I was pretty much only smoking Don Diego's and Fuente stuff at this time.

Both were years ago but I sill remember my first early release VSG and the first release opus Super Beli. Both sat the big man down. I since leaned the value of a nice meal beforehand.

A Padron #2000 kicked my ass last night. The guy at the B&M said it was a mild to medium cigar. I didnt know any different. First cigar in many months. All was well while I was sitting and smoking. About half way through, I stood up and it was over!

When I got my bearings back about me, I felt like crap and went to bed for the night!

Looked up Padron #2000 this morning, full bodied, strong cigar. I'll do my own research on cigars from now on and let the B&M guy lead the next guy astray.
