    An ISOM R&J anniversary edition something-or-other several years ago. $25. 7. Good, but not worth it.

    I would rate this cigar about an 8-9 if is very good but I dont think it is worth the cost when I can get an ashton VSG, Opus X, or AF anejo for less money which I feel are equally good or better cigars.

    I have two Davidoff milleniums my wife picked up in vegas for me, I think there were like $35. I haven't smoked them yet and have no idea if that is a good or bad price.

    And, when my wife was just in Orlando, she picked me up a Opus X for $20, which seems like a reasonable price for that. She just got back a day ago, so I haven't smoked that one yet either. She said she almost got me a GoF.

    Oh, and I forgot that I also once paid $25 for a Hemingway Masterpiece at a restaurant. Hugely inflated price. Worth every damn dollar.

    Winston Churchill Marrakesh as of now
    $17.50 I think $20 and change after damn taxes :(
    GREAT cigar, would love to buy a box eventually worth the money in my opinion!

    Padron 1926
    $26
    Worth it

    Gurkha Royal Salute
    $25
    Totally worth it

    God of Fire Carlito (05)
    $23
    Great cigar, but not really worth the price tag
  • I forget with everything I have bought. Here is what I can remember.

    Padron 1926 $25 I thought it was good but I liked the 64 better.

    God of Fire Carlito - Torpedo $26 I liked it but it needs more aging time. Have a 8 more.

    Gurkha Beauty $30 Still not sure. Only had one and it was different, unlike anything I have ever had before.

    Next on my list is the Don Arturo Gran AniverXario. Looks like it is going to be around $60. Guess I'll find out if it is indeed worth it.

    I haven't had a carlito yet, but the don carlos was really tasty. It was from 2006

    Oh and I forgot to mention that I think my highest cigar was a Gurhka CORNICHE, which was around 27.80 or so. I ordered 4 of them, they look perdy, I hope they are good.

    Never heard of them. Where did you get them?

    pm your way..
  • Most expensive purchased:
    Two Feuente Between the Lines $18.95
    Haven't smoked them yet, I'm going to sit on them for awhile.

    Smoked:
    Oliva V Maduro Torpedo $9.00
    Worth every penny

    I have a Gurkah Beast in my Humi from Smoke = Fire looking forward to the first warm night to smoke that puppy.

    I also have 2 Anejo robustos and a "Shark" for future smokage.

    I forgot about those. I spent $30 each on the Between the Lines.

    Most expensive smoked was a Winston Chuchill by Davidoff. Even at about $16 it was totally worth it. I'd rate it about a 9.

    Most expensive in my humi-
    Camacho '62 Pre Embargo, $25
    God of Fire, $24
    Arturo Fuente Opus X, a gift but definitely up there with the others
    Also got a half dozen or so various sticks in the $20 range but I'm trying to save all of these for some special occasions.

    so far my most expensive cigar was a Makers Mark. $12 cigar, while it wasn't bad, wasn't worth $12....but that's what i get for buying a stick at a cigar bar.

    I have heard bad things about the makers mark, many people said it was just ok and not worth 12 bucks just as you did. But hey, im a makers mark fan, and a cigar fan, and a sucker, so chances are if i see one ill probably pick it up :P thats me for ya - Thomas

    I had a bourbon makers mark on the 4th of July. It wasn't bad but not nearly as good as say a gurkha grand reserve. I think the infusion process is much better for the latter.

    love makers mark

    I've got a Pardon 1926 Maduro that I dropped $28 on but I haven't smoked it yet. Picked it up about 6 months ago and just can't seem to light it up yet. Also picked up an Opus X for $18 but haven't smoked that one either... I guess the most expensive thing I've smoked was either my Cohiba Black for $16. I had a ISOM Cohiba but it was given to me by a friend so it didn't cost me anything. Both great smokes! The Cohiba Black was on my wedding day so it was a great smoke with good friends.

    If you have a chance to smoke a 10th Anniversary Makers Mark, I would take it. These cigars are kinda rare and are a great smoke. Better quality stick and a Conn. wrapper. I liked it alot more than the regular makers mark sticks.

    Got a Davidoff Special T for $18 last April for my wife's baby shower. I say it was a 8-9 as it opened me up to the world of fine cigars...but I'm a cheap *** and am not sure I would do that again...I do remember how creamy it was..I haven't had anything that creamy since...any suggestions on creamy cigars?

    Gran Habano #1 Connecticut, I seem to recall that cigar being fairly creamy. Any others escape my memory at the moment.

    I haven't put my two cents in on this thread I don't think...to date, the most expensive cigar I've had is a Padron 1964 toro with the habano wrapper, the price ran $17 if I remember correctly. That's a good deal more than I like to spend on a cigar, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't think it was worth every cent.

    If you like the Special T I suggest you buy them while they are still in existence Davidoff discontinued them.
  • Gurkha Titan II. $24.00. I recieved it in the New Years sampler and I highly recommend buying it. The Titan was completely worth it. It took a while to smoke, but it was very good. Rate it a 9.

    So far it's the Gurkha Grand Reserve that I picked up from the B&M as a New Year's gift for me. Haven't cracked the tube yet though...$16.50 just staring at me.
