Hard to go wrong with any Tatuaje, the Tattoo, Cojonu, miami 10th, so many that are great. Pete Johnson and My father can do no wrong. The broadleaf was pretty damn good. It started off kind of cedary and earthy but turned into lots black pepper and coco and coffee. With a heavy broadleaf flavor, it left a sweet kind of flavor lingering with me for hours.

Long live the Republic of Texas.

Guys, the UPS driver just pulled up and this is what he handed me from Famous Smoke. I have NO IDEA who sent these to me. It's not a backorder. Called the shop and they told me there was a note on the order the sender wanted to remain anonymous.

I'm not sure what to think.

Looks like you guys have been smoking some very nice smokes while I've been away. I'm looking for some help. I haven't been around much as things have been quite hectic and I'm in the process of a very big life change... 2.5 years ago, I fell getting out of my squad car (on duty thank goodness). After three surgeries I'm finally at the point where I'm done healing and a lifelong passion/career is coming to an end. I'm medically retiring (I filed my packet with the state today), and hopefully will be getting some type of duty disability. I plan to go back to school once I know what I want to do when I become an adult... However, to say this is quite scary and a major life event is an understatement.

Now, onto the question. I'd like to purchase some nice cigars to enjoy with my close friends and family. I'm thinking I'd like to stay around the $300 mark (ideally for a box up to ten). I'm also thinking that now may be the time to try some cubans. What do you guys think I should be looking at? What do you think is worthy of this momentous occasion?

Hey, nice to see you posting in the thread again! More to follow on this, and you will receive lots of suggestions, but trust me for $300 you can get a very nice box of something with 20 or even 25 in it and be incredibly satisfied.

If you really want to spend $300 on a box of 10, see my post a few Pages back about splitting a box of Davidoff Chef eddition with me.

Best of success on the career change!

Crowned heads La Careme for starters. Then maybe pick up some 5 packs of other suggestions. Smallbatchcigars.com has great 5 pack deals and free shipping that way you get a good variety. My father le bijou petite robusto is another great smoke too.

Congratulations on retirement, though I am sorry for the medical reason. Also, thank you for protecting and serving. As was said,you can find a bunch of options for that price range. I would try finding the Fuente Anejo "Shark", but they are 20 for around $360. Of course the Padron Diplomatico is a solid stick. A box of 25 is around $350 though.

I am smoking an Ave Maria Reconquista this evening. They are getting even better as they age.

Any thoughts on something a little more, ahem, foreign? Behike, perhaps?

IMHO spending that kind of coin on Cubans can be risky, they may need a lot of time resting, they may have construction issues. In a box of 25 I feel like I'm doing good if I toss less than 5.

For those reasons I prefer getting a variety.

Personally my next purchase will be Hoyo San Juan box of 10, and Ramon Allones superiors box of 10 both are from 2014 so resting period should be just till they get acclimated.

Those are about $50 a piece.

If you really want Cuban's, send me a note (email in my profile) and I'll direct you to a site or two where at least you know the product will be authentic.

Those are super rare these days. If you can find a box they will be $600-800 which IMO is just nuts. They are a great cigar but not that great.

I'd take a look at the Cohiba Robusto, Piriamides Extra or Esplendido before I'd buy a Behike. ....all great celebration sticks. It depends on what size and shape cigar you prefer.

Family reserve 50th or #50 maduro. The flavors are unlike any other cigar out there, always a perfect wrapper, construction and draw, no touch ups needed. Its the only cigar that when I'm finished I want to light up another one immediately after. They are a bit pricey but I have never felt like I paid too much for one.

Good response Jay. I agree with every word.

Had one of these last night:



Of all the La Gloria Cubana's I've had, this one just wasn't it...Color me unimpressed. Flat, flat, flat...ZERO flavor profile.

Mostly Dominican filler and a sumatra wrapper will make it quite bland if you prefer more spice and pepper. The maduro uses a broadleaf wrapper and makes all the difference in the world. Try one.

Guys,

I got a letter today from Atlantic Cigar Co. that my identity information from a November 2016 purchase was breached, including name, address and all credit card information. Mad

The have hired a cybersecurity firm for identity protection for 12 months to monitor the breached accounts.

Might want to check your records to see if you had any purchases around that timeframe from Atlantic.

Thanks Jay!

The La Gloria Cubana's that have been superb are the Torpedo No. 1 Maduro (probably my favorite), Serie N Glorioso (a nice fatty), and then the Serie N Generoso (nice smaller smoke). Also of Serie R, I had a No. 6 Maduro (think it was a 6) and it actually wasn't too bad.

Thanks for the heads up on Atlantic Cigar, gnut. Fortunately most all my on-line purchases come from JR Cigar with one order coming from Famous Smoke Shop.

Toughest decision today.....what to enjoy tonight. 1st-world problems, eh?? Smile
