Rate my 'Grab Bag'
I have only been here a few weeks but this city contains some wonderful tobacconists. One that I think will become my favorite has what are called 'grab bags' loosely translated in English. They are plastic bags of 8 sticks. You can see what is in them but they are all thrown into a barrel and you have to kind of dig around for them. Today they had them on special as a holiday sale item. I grabbed one that looked appealing on first look. Here is what it contained. Give your thoughts on what I got. Most of these I have never tried so it should be interesting. I love these types of things because it lets me get a wide variety of flavors and styles. Here is what my bag contained. CAO Brazilia - 5x56 size CAO Italia - 5x56 size CAO LX2 - 6x60 Rocky Patel Sun Grown - 4.4x55 (I love Sun Grown sticks) Gurkha Estate Selection Vintage Shaggy Presidente - 8x52 (this thing is a beast, probably a two hour smoke) Los Imperialista - size is probably 7x50 (I know nothing about this one? Never seen one before, the band is kind of cheap looking. It could be a cheap throw in) Graycliff Profesionale PG - 5.2x50 Small cigar that I don't know anything about. Any good? Partagas Sabroso Rojito - 5.7x44 Not sure about this one either. So how did I do? In USD I paid about $56 for the eight. Zurich though is one of the most expensive cities in the world though, so keep that in mind.
