Adam Goldstone is a chiropractic sports physician who knows a lot about cigars. He lives on the Shore in Monmouth County, New Jersey. Adam started smoking about three years ago, when you could by "Short Stories" for $58 a box. He enjoys a moderate to full flavored cigar with a good amount of spice, especially pepper. He likes it to end smooth, like a nice cup of coffee and to change flavors as it smokes. His favorite Cuban cigar is the Bolivar Royal Corona, and his favorite anytime cigar is the Fuente Hemingway Signature. Adam also enjoys collecting cigars. Once he'd amassed a collection of about 250 boxes it was time to build the "Patented Closet-Dor" to properly store his ever-growing collection.
