Handout cigar suggestions

Next week I'm having a combination 18th bday/high school graduation party for my daughter. I'm not sure what sticks to hand out to the guys. I have some 5v gold mads, miamis, jdn dArk corojos. I want to get something a little nicer for everyone (5 cigar smokers) without breaking the bank. Please toss up some suggestions. Consider the audience liking mild to medium full. Thanks.

    HMMM hard one, "Nicer" is in the eye of the beholder. I like the La Perla Habana Morado, It's a cameroon and a medium or the La Perla Habana Cobre, they're decently priced. Also, I really like Gurkha's Park Avenue, tho its not a high end cigar. How much are you wanting to spend per stick?

    I just do 5vegas gold, RP connecticuts, or Gurkha PA. They usually go over well.

    5-Vegas Classic, or Gold is my hand out to those who don't smoke cigars but want one. Those Miami"s you have are good, but nicer could be a MoW. Cohiba's have been cheap lately and the brand name itself may get some nods of approval from the boys.

    The most passed out cigar I know of is the 5 Vegas Classic

    +1 on the 5 Vegas Gold and Gurkha ParkAve as a good handout, never had the RP.

    The boys have about 2 years minimum smoking cigars each so no flavored or machine blends needed. I do have some of those morado's as well, good idea. I'm looking to spend about $8 a stick. Thanks. Maybe handout wasn't the best choice of wording.

    I love handing out Padilla '68s to cigar smokers. Usually they've never heard of them and love the flavors.

    That's a really good one, love the '68. For the $8-ish price range, you could go with Ashtons, they actually have a killer daily deal on them right now, 3 Ashtons and 3 Oliva Connecticuts for $30.

    La Herencia Cubana Oscuro Feurte or Oliva G Cameroon, those are 2 of my favorites to handout.
    I like the LHCOF because I can introduce them to two great things AJ cigars and a PA Broadleaf.

    id go with sancho panza extra fuerte if they smoke cigars already. they are inexpensive but have a good flavor.

    These are great and the price is reasonable; La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor

    Grateful for this topic...it confirmed my plans to hand out Gurkha PAs at a golf weekend I have coming up with a bunch of guys who aren't hard-core BOTLs.

    Mow virtue is a great smoke at a good price. You can call and probably get them for about $3.

    If ashtons are your handout cigar, I want to crash your parties. Just sayin!
