Cigar.com One Day Deal

Did you guys see the deal for this week? I am very very very tempted in purchasing it. However, I don;t have nymore room and am trying not to spend so much each month. I want to try the '68 and am willing to give the Obsidian another try.

    I was also wondering the same thing. I have only had the Obsidian - heard some good things about the Miami. Would anyone care to elaborate - perhaps compare/contrast?

    You've had the Obsidian, so I'll skip that one. The Habano is a medium bodied cigar with a good flavor profile...honestly, I can't recall much more than that, suffice to say I thought it was pretty good. The '68 is more medium-full with some cedar and spice, more towards full than medium. The Miami is another medium-full tending towards full, has a classic Nicaraguan taste, peppery, leathery and oh so tasty. The Achilles...well, I don't remember too well, I recall it being medium-full, but more towards medium with a good, if somewhat not complex flavor profile.

    For $3 a stick, this is an excellent deal if you like Padilla cigars, or even if you think you might like them, they all retail for a higher price, some of them double. I'd recommend the sampler myself.

    Jumped on that like a fat kid on a cupcake. Ordered the $15 Boutique sampler to go along with a few of the 3 for $5's as well.
  • rwheelwrightrwheelwright Posts: 3,296
    I just ordered the 3 of the $5s. I got myself that boutique sampler somewhere else about a month ago. Same deal however that $15 for it is cheaper than I paid. I think I got 2 5 packs for $35. It's a great deal but I have multiple of each stick except the Bahia Blue and the La Herencia Cubana.
  • madurofanmadurofan Posts: 6,152
    That La Herencia was pretty damn tasty.
  • rwheelwrightrwheelwright Posts: 3,296
    I haven't had it yet. Soon, though. Very soon.

    What size did you have? I really liked the La Herencia as well when I first had one, and it has continued to impress. I've had the lonsdale and toro.
  • madurofanmadurofan Posts: 6,152
    I had the Lonsdale. Excellent stick. Its the only one I've had but I loved it.
  • rwheelwrightrwheelwright Posts: 3,296
    I have a Toro resting about a month. I'll try and knock it out this weekend. So many to try. Seriously, I have so much new *** that I haven't tried yet. Gurkha 101 Signature, Monti Media Noche, Gurkha Sherpa, Gurkha Gold, La Herencia, Ashton regular, 5 Vegas Series A, DPG JJ, and more I can't think of. ***, I better get smoking!

    Which Fuente is that La Herencia supposed to be almost identical to? I read it the other day, but have forgotten.
  • dutyjedutyje Posts: 2,263
    The first La Herencia I tried was a Lonsdale, and I found it very disappointing. I didn't care for it at all. I had another Lonsdale more recently and it was fantastic. I've had 2 or 3 of the La Herencia Robustos, and they all were excellent. I had one Toro, and it developed a horrible plug, and couldn't be saved. I couldn't comment on its flavor. I had one Torpedo, and the flavor was very good, but I liked the Robusto better. I'm still sitting on a Toro and a Lonsdale. The rest have been shared with friends, and a couple through passes here. Burnt through that 20-cigar sampler pretty darn fast.

    I wish I had another Torpedo on hand, because I smoked that one at a party and couldn't give it my full attention. I've had enough of the Robustos to know that I'll definitely order more. They're perfect for tailgating or sharing with friends. The next Lonsdale I sample will actually help me decide whether I want to do the same with it. Jury is still out on the other two sizes. It'd have to be outrageously amazing to buy in quantity, because I normally share smaller sticks with company. I hate seeing half-smoked cigars laying around.

    The lonsdale is very good, I'd also recommend the toro. It had a different flavor, less strength but with a more rounded, sweeter finish.
  • I just jumped on today's deal.  Picked up the boutique too.  Haven't had most of those in the boutique.  Only one I have had is the graycliff.

    I'm not a fan of the Acid line, or pretty much any infused cigars... I want to taste and enjoy the natural flavors of the tobacco. If I wanted flavored smokes I'd light up a menthol! lol

    I've never been a fan of anything CAO has put out...it's like Google or Apple...I think I just hate the branding.
