    Right now it's:

    1. Avo LE10

    2. Joya de Nic Dark Corojo El Martillo

    3. LFD Airbender Matatan

    4. Man o War Ruination Robusto #1

    5. LFD Double Ligero Chisel Sumatra

    6. Oliva Serie V Torpedo

    7. Diesel Unlimited belicoso

    But I still have a whole bunch of sticks to try. I have almost 1 of every Camacho and I'm pretty sure one or two of those will get added to this list.

    I just did the Top Three list. As I stated there, after my top three, there are several other companies that would compete for 4 through 10. I couldn't possibly list my top ten because after the top three, the others kind of rotate position according to how I feel or how the last stick of a particular blend pleased me at the time.

    How much personal blending did you don on the top 5 sticks. You've had a hand in them since the beginning but were they made more toward your flavor profile?

    These aren't in order

    • La Herencia Cubana Oscuro Fuerte
    • Gurkha Centurian
    • Gurkha Empire VI
    • MOW Ruination
    • Diesel
    • CAO Brazilia
    • AF God Of Fire
    • Davidoff Classic No. 1
    • Sol Cubano Cuban Cabinet
    • Partagas Black Label


    I know this list will change I have a ton of stuff to smoke when it ages. I still have to try an Armada I have 6 waiting, maybe 1 this weekend.
  • t_evan50t_evan50 Posts: 1,725
    Mine would have to be:

    1. Padron 1964 Maduro
    2. AF Hemingway Maduro
    3. 262 Paradigm Torp.
    4. Kristoff Maduro
    5. Ccom Red Label (thats right)
    6. 5V Gold Maduro
    7.Ccom Brazilian Label
    8. AF Hemingway
    9. Diamond Crown Maximus
    10. Diesel UC

    Man this makes me realize I have so many sticks in my humi that I haven't tried if I did this would probably totally change.
  • boydmcgowanboydmcgowan Posts: 1,101
    1. Don Pepin Garcia Blue
    2. Diesel Unlimited
    3. Diesel UHC
    4. La Gloria Cubana Original
    5. Tatuaje Havana VI
    6. La Aroma De Cuba
    7. Padron 1926
    8. RP Decade
    9. Gurkha Masters Select Perfecto
    10. MOW Original

    I feel like I'm forgetting something . . . but this list is a pretty solid representation of my humidor rotation the last few years. The Padron 1926 and RP Decades don't often find themselves in there, becuase I rarely spend that much on a single cigar, but when I they do I really enjoy them.

    Man, a list like this reminds me about all my favorites from the past that i've been neglecting the past bunch of years. Cigars like, Partagas Black, CAO Criollo, AF Don Carlos, AF Hemingway and the AF Curly head Deluxe, its been so long since I've had any that I forget what they taste like, except that I liked them at the time. I need to go back and retry all the old favorites again this year.
