It was the Classic Churchill - 7 1/2 x 52. I've had the Prime Minister, Corona, and the Majesty, but have always preferred the Churchill, with the Corona a close second.

It seems I have the itch again after the teaser last week, but will have to expand my vocabulary and try some of the others in this thread. There are probably 10-12 guys at my club that smoke while golfing, and the aroma finally got to me.

Re: Cigars

The Ashton VSG is one of my favorite cigars out there right now.

Re: Cigars

After hearing about Ashton's on here, I decided to pull a VSG out of the Humi for todays round. It was fabulous just as expected. It is going to have to go in the rotation.

Re: Cigars

I've got 4 humis (various sizes and materials) aging 10 different smokes - from Cuban Monty #2's (sadly one left that has been aging for over 10 years ), to various Carlos Toranos (Signature, Exodus Silver), CAOs(Brazilia, Cameroon, Gold), Padrons (#4000 and #6000), Rocky Patels ('92 and '94), Puros Indios (#2, Broncos),...

I don't smoke many (average <1 per month); they're good to pass out whenever a supplier of friend pays for the round!!!

All 3 of these cigars are very mild and will produce a great golf smoke.
Hmm, I think so, but not certain. It was a mild, nice smoke'n and moderately priced cigar. My absolute favorites right now are Romeo & Juilet Reserva in a Churchill. IMO the R & J's have the best flavor and smoke the best, but aren't moderately priced.

Thank you very much for the recommendations, I'll try 'em.

Re: Cigars

New Havana is having a pretty good deal today. Its just to bad they dont have any of the exclusivo's. Any other recomendations from that list.

From the Email:

Pete is in town and he brought swag! We will be doing an 'Online Event' - today only. All in-stock, Pete Johnson / Tatuaje box sales (Tatuaje, Cabaiguan, La Riqueza) will include a special package which includes a 3-pack of Private Reserve Robustos (Pete's Black Label - currently made for events only), a Tatuaje Buzz Cutter, the new Tatuaje Patch Trucker Hat and another stick from Pete's travel bag. This is over $80 in free goods! This is available Friday, August 29th only. Pete says he's taking any leftovers with him!

Re: Cigars

Can't go wrong with any of the Tat's. The LaRiqueza's are pretty darned decent too. (I've not had nearly as many La Riqueza cigars)

For the Tat's, I definitely prefer the brown label, in a ~6" x 45-50 ring gauge (Regios size, 5-1/2" x 50. The Noellas size is very popular, because it is near a traditional Cuban cigar size)

The Cabaiguan isn't my favorite, but it is a decent stick, for a little less cash than the others.


BTW - that's a very cool deal that they're offering, if you can swing the cost of a box, that's a lot of cool stuff to get for FREE, and the Black Labels, you can only get from Pete at an event, so this is a very rare opportunity to lay hands on them.

Re: Cigars

First of all let me say that if this is too off topic, let me know and I'll start a new thread. My sister is getting married in October and all of the guys are having a golf outing that weekend. I would like to get some cigars for us all to enjoy while we play. I'm not much of a cigar smoker so I thought I'd ask for some advice from the more seasoned smokers out there. I am looking for a mild to medium cigar (we are playing in the early morning) that I can get 15-20 of for approx. $50. Any reccomendations for me to look into? Thanks, I appreciate your help.
post #244 of 352

Re: Cigars

For that price range, I would recommend Rocky Patel Vintage 2nds. Very good smoth cigar and because they are 2nds, a great price.

There are tons of great choices though.

If you can bump up your budget another $30-$40 for a box of 20 you could have ton of great options, like the mild ones TheBirdieman recomended a page or two ago.

Hee hee, maybe.

Interestingly, BOTL wasn't cut out, just the vendors.





Here ya go, cheap cigars that don't suck:

http://www.jrcigars.com/index.cfm?pa...rand=CONSUEGRA

Stick with the natural, the maduro isn't quite as smooth.


http://www.jrcigars.com/index.cfm?pa...itemcode=JRAFS

These are a awfully darn good alternative (clone?) of the Arturo Fuente Hemingway. I've had them a number of times, and continue to order them when I can.


http://www.jrcigars.com/index.cfm?pa...temcode=JRUPSW

I've had the real deal *wink, wink, but I've been told from a couple of buddies that these aren't bad either, and the price sure is right.


http://www.holts.com/category.html?i...83&trail=86665

If you can come up with a little more scratch, these are pretty darned decent. They're a Don Pepin cigar (a little bolder, but very well made)



Hope this helps, and have fun at your golf outing!!!

Re: Cigars

Shopping at Holts is great. Shopping at JR Cigars has left me nothing but problems. And their selection is limited now (IMHO).

Re: Cigars

I gave in and just bought a new humidor today. I had filled up the four 100 counts that I had, so decided to go big for my home office. Here is what I ordered. They tell me it holds 1500, but realistically 1200. That should be fine...lol.

Wow playa, that's a nice one. If you're like me it will bother you to see it half full
