CAO is one of my favorite brands. The MX2 is on my short list of go to cigars. The Brazilia is good, but i haven't had one in a while. I have not had any of the others on the list.

A couple of great cigars that won't break the bank are the Perdomo Lot 23 and the Alec Bradley American Classic. Both sticks are in the 4-5 dollar range and are also on my short list.

Some other cigar brands you will probably want to explore are Rocky Patel (never had a bad Rocky), Arturo Fuente and Ashton (high end). Definately do a lot of exploring, that is what makes this hobby fun.

Kind of funny this thread was the first one that caught my eye. I pass a cigar store every day going to and from work, and this morning as I drove by I decided I was going to stop and grab a couple of cigars on the way home. I've only had a few cigars and I don't know much about them, but I do enjoy them! I'll be listening to what people have to say in this one.

I really wasnt a big fan of the Mx2 or the Lx2, Me and one of my buddys each just bought an Fuente Anejo. We actually got to meet the Fuente family a few months ago. they did some event at Holts in Philly.

Those Anejos are one of my all time favorites. They are rare, only coming out once a year around christmas. They are good right away, but get a year or so of age on them and you will literally have to resist eating them.

I forgot to mention I enjoy full bodied cigars more than most. I am the one in the group that will purposely seek out the darkest beer and fulliest bodied cigar. The Perdomo and Alec Bradley are much lighter smokes. Ashton Classic is a very very good light bodied cigar.

Macanudo (as mentioned by Fireman) is another lighter bodied smoke, as is the Montecristo White. The Opus X is strong, knocked my brother on his ***.

Can't say I have had the Anejo yet. I will definitely be ordering a few soon though. I generally like the fuller bodied cigars, but for "normal" smoking I like to have the lighter cigars. I save the best for special occasions

Ahhhh, a subject after my own heart. As mentioned the Anejo is an outstanding smoke (although a year of age on them does make them even MORE delicious). If you haven't tried it yet, and you like full-bodied smokes, I highly recommend the Liga Provada #9 from Drew Estates. Truly outstanding smoke. CAO makes some decent smokes, although I think they've changed a bit due to being bought out (General Cigar if I recall correctly?) Lot 23's are a tasty smoke. If you want a great cigar for cheap, check out the Cuba Libre One. Can be found for $3-4/stick on Cigars International, although I got a bundle of 20 for $20 on Cigar-bid. Another of my "always go to" smokes is the RyJ En Cedros #2, just a great every day smoke.

I have been smoking a lot of Rocky Patel cigars lately, especially the Decade, 1999, and Old World Reserve. I also like the La Flor Coronado.

For special occasions I usually smoke a Padron Anniversario or an Fuente Opus X.

IMO Punch offers the best quality for the best price.

Don Diego's are probably my favorite. I don't smoke cigars much but I prefer those over most others.

i ended up going with the Black. It was a wonderful smoke, not too peppery, had a nice thick smoke to it, and i kept getting hints of what i can best describe as pretzels. i spent a good 100-110 minutes on this cigar and if just one of the other four is as good ill consider it a good buy.


i joined a forum for cigars and they can be a bit uppity if you dont want to spend a few hundred on cigars to get started...but they have been helpful in getting started, i put together a coolidor which i am "seasoning" right now, hoping for upper 60's humidity. its a coleman 16 qt roller. I also need to get decent butane, the crap i got is killing my lighter

ive heard bad things about cheap cigars but im tempted to get something like this- http://www.cigarsinternational.com/p...stext=po%20boy i wouldnt feel too bad about giving a few to friends and i only have 4 in my coolidor...
