Ever get one of those that you didn't want to end?

0patience0patience Posts: 10,665 ✭✭✭✭✭
Ever get one of those cigars that smelled great before you lit it, then the draw was as near perfect as you like, good smoke out of it and you wished it would stay like that for ever? I'm not talking about real high end cigars, but everyday premium cigars that you weren't prepared for them to be THAT good.

Now I realize that taste, preference and all that is subjective, so what was the cigar you had that you didn't want to end?

Mine was a Torano 1916 (imagine that) that had you blindfolded me, I'd have sworn it was a ultra premium cigar. The smell, to me anyways, was heavenly. The cigar construction was a work of art, it was as flawless as I could imagine. The draw was just right, it pulled smoke as I could ever want. The ash held on so much that I was well into the cigar that I was concerned that it would fall off, so I tapped it off. The ash was dark and sturdy. It was the last of a box, that I wish I would have gotten more of, cause I'd like to think the rest of the box was that way.

It's rare that you find one that just blows you away, especially when it's an "everyday premium" cigar.

    Padron 2000 natural. I always feel that way- wish I could have smoked little longer.

    I like the JR Ultimate Maduro in a toro size. I know...not what most of you would call an "everyday premium cigar", but it smells great and the burn/draw/construction is always perfect. I have had many compliments on how good that cigar smells and how much I look like I am enjoying it, and I do enjoy them.

    Most recent was a Diesel Unlimited d7 with about a year on it; super smooth, delicious - just didn't want it to end (but when it did, I had to light another up immediately; glad I bought a box to age)

    Ave Maria corona that greg2648 chunked at as part of a bomb. Super smooth, perfect draw, beautiful construction. As much smoke as a big gauge. Nubbed it down until I burnt my fingers. Never harsh, no tar.

    Couldn't agree more Matt, that is a brilliant cigar and the price point just makes it that much better for me as well. I'd say the same thing regarding the MoW Little Devil and Ruination as well along with the regular line Ave Maria's. They just are phenomenal and just make it a brilliant cigar experience every time for me.

    Padron 1926 #9 Maduro, one of the best sticks I've ever had. Whenever I smoke one I just can't get enough. Im so bummed when it's done that Im almost tempted to roll up the ash and smoke it. ha ha

    My very first LP9... oil, fresh, smelled so sweet and juicy... it billowed a creamy blue smoke, drew so well that even the tiniest pull filled my mouth with robust flavors of molasses, sweet roasty coffee and gobs of cocoa. Smoked it till i burned my fingers... and still tried to keep going! They are never as good as when they are fresh.

    i had a Man O' War Ruination the other night that was rockin. I even tried to use my cutter as a glorified roach clip to get every last puff out of it. (that's what I've heard roach clips were for anyway.)

    I was really surprised by the RP Thunder I smoked a while back. Picked it up from JJ's in Seattle and smoked it the same night. It was pretty great down to the nub. I think I only paid $6 for it.
