Cinco de Mayo!

Ole!
Well Cinco de Mayo is coming up and it happens to be my birthday. I usually show up at a Mexican restaurant and get the royal treatment.
I was wondering what cigar should follow one of these gastrological experiences? The Anejo has a celebratory feel to it. I also have some Hemmingways (maduro) and Double Chateau Classics. A 6 mo. Fuente/Fuente is also in my box, but the general consensus around here is to let that rest a full year.
I'm not a fan of Mexican potables, and am currently watching my adult beverage consumption, so I'll probably pour just a small dram of single malt.
Another choice, and here's where I'm looking for forum help, would be to smoke a Mexican Cigar.

Are there any quality hand rolled cigars coming out of Mexico? I know I can find cigars with Mexican tobacco, but factories and brand names of Mexican cigars? Any input out there?

    Yeah, there's plenty of mexican cigars - problem is that it's illegal to buy, sell, smoke, or grow them in the US. Though you could always ask some high school or college kids to hook you up with some authentic mexican products ;)

    For a libation, you could always try some tequila, and see if your local B&M has any of these: http://www.cigarcabana.com/mexican-cigars.html

    Te-Amo makes a decent smoke.

    I've only ever had the World Selection Series. It was pretty decent. And for the price, I'd recommend it as test-worthy. I wouldn't go out and but a box but I'd smoke one again.

    If memory serves me correct...Alec Bradley Tempus is classified as a Mexican cigar. Those are good smokes too! Def on my A+ list of smokes!!
  • The LADC Mi Amor has a Mexican wrapper and is a great smoke.

    Lots of good cigars with San Andreas Maduro wrappers (a mexican leaf), including the San Lotano Maduro, which is an awesome cigar. Also like the Tatuaje The Face, which has a great Mexican wrapper.

    +1, I had a WSS Te-Amo and I thought it was a good smoke. Not a "10" cigar, but definitely worth smoking, IMO.
    Light 'em up.

    I agree the Te-Amo WS is a decent smoke

    Then that's settled. B&M near here carries them and I will visit tomorrow and procure one. If it tastes like crap, I will retaliate. Thanks guys
