What one brand?

I like a lot of different cigars and I seem to go to Torano cigars a lot.
Lately, I've been seeming to tend to lean toward Torano and Camacho.

Which got me wondering. Which brands do you tend to seem to gravitate to, other than AF, Padron and the obvious ones?

To me, Torano and Camacho seem to both have a really good quality to them.
There are those ones that I like regularly, other than those 2, but a lot of them seem to be hit and miss on the quality.

Anyways, was curious (and bored) and figured I'd post it up.
There is no crisis that a good cigar can't cure.

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    Well since padron is out :( I'd go la aurora or camacho. But seem to fit my likings a lot other then that can't go wrong with davidoff even though I have been having some plugging issues with them recently. But yeah always grab some padrons when I can't figure it out so I guess my choice doesn't count lol

    I just thought that Padron, AF, Davidoff and the like would be obvious selections.

    Hahahaha yeah they are...but I haven't really been getting anything but padron,la aurora,davidoff,camacho and lfd recently. It's hard not to grab them since they are great sticks and usually always consistent

    Camacho has been a staple for a long time now for me. It really depends on a lot of things for me and sometimes the old favorites get old but I always seem to come back to RyJ 1875 outside of the ones you have listed.

    davidoff*
    JdN
    LFD
    camacho

    those are the brands that i gravitate to.


    *one thing about Davidoff...
    it isnt so much that brand, but the blending style. therefore, Avo, and the Griffins and other kelner blends seem to work well for me.

    My Father by far. The Le Bijou is my go to smoke. I do love the Carlos Torano signature and I always keep them on hand as well.

    Finally, another who loves the Carlos Torano signatures. I keep the torps on hand by the box and they get better every year. My current is a 4 year old box that is so smooth its like butter. 4 of the 5 packs for 60 bucks to restock has me at hello.

    While I have not tried a lot of cigars yet I would definitely smoke La Aurora Preferidos #2's forever :)
  • bigharpoonbigharpoon Posts: 2,963 ✭✭✭
    I wouldn't say AF is such an obvious choice, it took me a VERY LONG TIME to appreciate their cigars. Now I love them.

    Additionally I'd say My Father, La Aurora and Ashton.

    Have been gravitating to don Pepin a lot recently but I always go back to AJ. I found something out recently from Kuzi of course. These two blenders pre load their smokes at the beginning for that blast of pepper. I love the harsh retro so I tend to like these cigars. I recently discovered that I can burn a lighter smoke and still enjoy as long as the initial retro makes my eyes water. Lil monster perfect example.

    The JDN Celebracion may be one of the best inexpensive cigars on the market (IMO). I seem to always have them on hand.

  • RCY_CigarsRCY_Cigars Posts: 5,492 ✭✭✭
    Camacho, Padron, Carlos Torano, Alec Bradley, Zino, Avo, Drew Estates Liga Privada or Illusione.

    My one brand is a hard choice. I will say Avo, it's the most I have currently in stock. Then Drew Estates and Zino.

    Tony, you do realize that though Davidoff is out but Camacho is also owned by Oettinger Davidoff group.

    Since Cuban, Padron, Davidoff's are out so my next pick would be La Palina 1896, Little Bill, Zino Davidoff Crown and Emperor Edition, Z NY edition, Viaje Oro Reserva # 5 2010 release.
