Which one did you have? (they make loads of tasty smokes)

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.

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

I am far from a cigar aficionado, but I had an Ashton Churchill last week after a year layoff, and I forgot how much I liked it.

By Vegas do you mean 5 Vegas (pronounced Cinco Vegas)? THey are great mild sticks. If you like the mild stuff, here are a few to try out if you want to.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!!!

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

    • I stand corrected. I will however, stand by the fact that he's not nearly as far gone as someone like Fowler. This year was clearly a drop on the stats front, but he still finished respectably on the money list. I'm not ready to assign him to the trash heap yet. Completely OT, but I'm curious how Rory's recent fall in the rankings compares with others who've fallen hard from the top  - not because of physical injury (I'm making an assumption that injury is not Rory's issue). People like Jordan (who's rebounded) and Duval. Do they collapse in one area (e.g. putting) or many areas? Is there any pattern? My guess is that there isn't a pattern, and that it's such a hard game that any golf "skill" that degrades can cause a precipitous drop in results.
    • @kmp which rules would you change, and how?  Though no rules should allow cutting down the lone tree at Chambers Bay...
    • Man, get well soon (seriously). This is just chit-chat about golf, or, to be precise, a level of golf most of we mere mortals can only watch in awe before heading out and skinning one over the green. The best of luck with your recovery. And I'm sorry for being snippy.
    • Yeah sorry your right but my point was Jack didn’t make the course the reason he didn’t win, my memory is abit off after a month in a coma. I’m trying to setup a new laptop and it’s not happening, I’ve had to admit defeat and get some help. My bad…
