The newest addition to the Montecristo Social Club website is the forum section. Members can login and post to categories that include Cigar Talk, Food and Drink and a section for “Everything Else.” Cigar forums are extremely popular online. It will be interesting to see how long it takes this forum to gain traction. With 45,000 plus members it probably won’t take long.
The Montecristo Social Club website also features a section for events at local tobacconists. Local cigar events are a great way to meet other cigar smokers and learn about new blends from the manufacturer’s rep’s hosting the events at your local cigar shop. Buy local and support your local cigar shop. Without them the cigar industry would not be what it is today.
