    I've got more Crown Royal bags than I know what to do with, but I keep buying the stuff. I switched from ceegars to a pipe a while back, doesn't stink as much.

    I wouldn't spend too much on the whiskey/bourbon/scotch for two reasons:
    1. High end stuff never tastes as good as it should when you drink it from a flask instead of a glass.
    2. Cheap stuff always tastes much better than it should when you drink it on the river.
    Evan Williams, George Dickel, Early Times are all good cheap browns.

    You seem way to smart to take up smoking.

    My .02 is scotch in moderation, and light beer if you're on the sticks of the boat.

    In regards to smoking, depending on how hardy your plumbing is, you may get to acquaint yourself with a urologist and his cystoscope if you develop any issues in your bladder in years to come. This tool, on a regular basis, is what will be going up the business end of your veinersnitzel for him to take care of whatever you develop(the part with white bands). Anyhow, it's your life, and your roll of the dice. Some guys smoke for years with no issues.

    If you don't currently drink and smoke, why would you want to start? No high horse here, just asking. We get one shot at life and a finite amount of money.

    With everything James, it comes down to your tastes. Don't listen to anyone on here or what they "like". Why? Because their answers are WRONG. Why wrong? Because they don't have your tastebuds. :) Try a few cigars, try a couple whiskeys, etc. Hell, doesn't even need to be whiskey. If you like a good rum, tequila, whatever. Put that in a flask. I don't find ANY fault if someone wants to smoke cheap Swisher Sweets and drink cheap whiskey, as long as they're out fishing while doing it. I smoke a cigar most aficiondos would consider "crap" or "not real". But I love them, taste good. And I chaw on the butt when I'm done with it (yup, that quote will be quote of the year I tell you lol). Again, it comes down to what you like. Guess what? I know a few guys who don't care for tobacco at all (chew, cigarettes, or cigars) and drink just sparingly.

    BTW, when you come home, don't forget to bring me my Soju. :)

    James,

    If you have to ask for advice about cigars and whiskey (or whisky), you're too young or otherwise unqualified to partake of either.

    He's a multi deployed soldier who's currently deployed. I think he's more then qualified to partake in both. He fishes with myself and a few others from my program, we all smoke and drink after we're off the water. Why he's asking. Should've just asked me James. LOL

    You should try a pipe instead. It will make you look smart and impress the fish

    Don't tell him that. James is naive enough to walk into a "pipe" store, not realizing these are pipes for smoking herbs. I can just see what the Army would do to him with a little glass pipe with a small bowl claiming "Sir, it's for tobacco, even the shop said so". ROFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, as many who have fished with me can attest, I enjoy a stream side drink. I don't smoke cigars much but every once in a blue moon they are not bad.

    Scotch: Macallen 12y/o is my fav. but a little expensive.

    Whiskey: Pendleton 1910 12y/o Rye is my fav.

    Burbon: Woodford Reserve.

    Tequila: I like good ol' El Jimador Anejo Very inexpensive and good in Coffee.

    Not a Vodka fan sorry can't help on this one.
