Help Me Choose

My wife and I are expecting a baby boy at the end of June. I would like some help choosing a couple of cigars for my father-in-law and I. We both like Church Hills, Long Filler and Mild. Although we do change up alot, I am looking for suggestions on a very good cigar. Not too often I treat myself to anything over $20.00 but for this occasion we will treat ourselves to the very best. Give me yalls best choice.

Thanks,

Lance

    Congrats on the little guy. I don't really know any quality mild smokes that would run $20, but a couple of suggestions on ones you might enjoy are:

    Perdomo Champagne or ESV 91

    Rocky Patel Vintage 99

    Avo (might get close to $20 in a B&M)

    Cusano Exclusivo (if you can find them)

    Gurkha Symphony ( there some's great deals on these right now. PM and I will let you know where)

    Premium milds eh...hmmm


    Well, fortunately for you, mild cigars dont get pricy..its the medium+'s that do.


    That being said, I pretty much have two options to suggest: Ashton Classic or Ghurka Symphony. As a matter of taste i consider the Ashton classic to be the best premium mild out there, but the ghurka symphony comes darn close. If you want to buy from here, youd have to choose the ashton anyway, ccom doesnt vendor the symphony.

    Well, the one I'm going to suggest is not $20+, but it is a pretty good mild-medium smoke. I'd recommend the Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real churchill, it's the best size in that blend that I've had. Utterly smooth and creamy, the cigar practially melts on your mouth. Can you tell I like it? :)
  • Ashton Classic was my very first smoke and you are right on it is very good. Now I wanna go crazy and buy 2 smokes price is max $100.00 ea. If I understand yall are saying its hard to spend $20.00 + on a smoke I got a lot to learn I was thinking when I go and grab a $19.95 smoke of the rack I was being cheep??

    Vid, when I read churchill and mild my first thought was Ashton Classic. That was the first good cigar I ever had. You definitely should go that route.

    You can easily spend $20 on a cigar...look into Davidoff. My opinion, and I think the general consensus, is that you don't need to spend that kind of money to get a really awesome cigar.
  • Its a good thing I asked before I walked into the B&M and said I wanna spend $200.00 bucks on 2 smokes I am willing to bet they would have found me something LOL.

     

    Thanks Lance

    We have decided to go with a few Ashton Cabinet for the smokes. I smoked one on my honey moon and thought it was good (but was kinda drunk) so will try it out again. Guys thanks for all the help.

     

    Thanks Lance

    I'd go with the ESG or VSG myself. Or even some AF God of Fire's.. Ashton cabinets are good but not good enough for this celebration..

    I agree too but I would go with the VSG. Didn't like the one ESG I had. I'll have to give it a another try but the first VSG I had was great.

    I don't know if it's me or what but it seems that a lot of 6.5 or 7 inch long cigars with a 50 ring usually go out on me at least once... One reason why I don't like the ESG's or some of the gurkhas, I feel it's a bad size.. Now if it has a large ring like 56 that's ok. I personally have a deep love for the 6x60 vsg..

    So do you think the 6x60 vsg would be a good choice?

    Am I wrong in saying the bigger the ring the smoother the smoke compared to the same smoke with a smaller ring?

    Now we're talking. In my opinion, one of the best cigars money can buy is the Padron 1964 Anniversary Imperial in the habano wrapper. With a $100 limit, you're way under too since they come in around $17. Hands down the best cigar I've had. For a little more coin, the Camacho Pre-embargo is also a very tasty smoke, in my top 10 list. So many choices, but those are my picks.
