I'm Duncan, and I moved to Round Rock, TX about a year ago. I've been a cigar enthusiast for about 2 years now. I found CigFed through my podcast app and enjoy listening to basically everything, especially Sharing Our Pairings and What Embargo.
I decided to join because this seems to be a very unique and involved community for cigar lovers like myself. Excited to see how I can contribute and learn more.
Quick question: if anyone is in the Central Texas area, any recommendations on lounges, stores, or other cigar friendly places?
I was there recently, and Habana House North in north Austin is a fantastic shop. One of the best stocked humidors I've seen in 10 years of wandering around in cigar shops. A decent lounge as well.
Thanks for the info! I haven't been by there. I'll check it out.
I actually did not know he was in Round Rock! We haven't met yet. Perhaps now we will.
Welcome aboard, Duncan!
Round Rock, home of the MFCEO! And a place I regularly visit. Pipe World in La Frontera Village is the only place I have ever been to in Round Rock. The MFCEO's humidor is my usual place to pilfer. lol But, it's a nice place, a bit small, but has a nice selection.
Honestly, I do 99.9% of my cigar & cigar accessories buying at the CigFed Store anymore. Shameless, but 100% truthful plug. ;)
Lol I'll have to meet up with the MFCEO sometime then. Don't hesitate to reach out when you're in town. Pipe World is my go-to B&M right now, but I did just get my first order in from here. 1502 Lanceros were a good start.
1502, great cigar. Lancero, great vitola. Yup. Those cigars are a win! The Ruby in a corona is legit too.
