Advice about a gift from a coworker

bacon.jaybacon.jay Posts: 720 ✭✭✭
I had a coworker walk up to me and give me a La Aurora Preferido Platinum #2 Perfecto out of the blue today, and i really want to give him something in return for such a nice cigar, but i'm not sure what? my current stock of multiples...

Gurkha Doble Maduro
Gurkha Titan II
Oliva V Maduro
Camacho PE
Camacho 1962
5Vegas Limitada '08
5Vegas A

I'm thinking maybe a Titan II. I like them a lot and they're a great cigar. What do you guys think?

    I'd go with the Oliva V Maduro or the Camacho PE, just based on the "equivalence" factor.

    If it were me, I'd follow what Tony said. However, I'm sure he gifted it to you with no expectation of something in return, so he'd probably be happy with any of those.

    If given the oppurtunity I like to return an act of kindness with an even bigger act of kindness. If it wouldn't kill your stash I'd hit him with one each of the listed sticks. Or as many as you can part with.

    Good ole maddy and his "Untouchables" approach. "They pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. "

    Thats my general approach. However, sometimes they just hit too hard and you have to be happy that you limped away and try to snipe away at them as you can ... "You got a worldwide crime syndicate now. There's no rules. There's no parameters. There's no feelings. There's no feelings for this country."

    Well, I know that he's never smoked a Gurkha before, except MAYBE one of those newer-blend Black dragon robustos.... that's why i was leaning towards the titan II.

    I'm thinking one of those, one of the oliva V maduros, and a camacho PE. go middle of the road with what maddy said guys?

    Since I love the the aurora preferidos line so much and of the ones you listed that I've tried the PE was my favorite, I'd say go with that. However, those preferidos are quite pricey so you could lean a little more towards Maddy's idea and give him the PE and something else you think he might really enjoy. Maybe the PE and titan?

    Sounds like a good idea.

    Oliva V maduro awesome stick, if he is a good friend I'd go with that.

  • I agree with the Titan and the Oliva "V".....but the bigger question here is how does one get on Maddy's "friends" list.....lol

    I have no friends, only people I know who survived the bomb.

    Of the sticks you list I have only had the Camacho PE and the 5 Vegas A. Of those two the PE is certainly the better of the two, not that there is anything wrong with the A. It just happens that in my young cigar smoking life the PE is one of the best I have had.
