As a fan of Ultra Power stogies, I am always looking for ones I have not tried. I was recently introduced to the Diesel by Randy (Rain). Wow, impressive! Let me know which are your favorite power sticks!

    Not my favorite, but I had one pvnisher...ouch. I had just started smoking and thought my lips were chapped or something.

    Try some La Flor Dominicana's... the colorado knocked me on my butt, so did the cameroon cabinet chisel.

    Tatuaje Fausto is a gpod, earthy powerhouse.

    Joya de Nicaragua dark corojo "strong as balls"

    edit: I remembered another. Although not as strong as some of the others, Jaime Garica Reserva Especials are quite full flavored and pretty strong when fresh. I have turned green smoking one before. Theu age great and remain very flavorful, yet smooth out a little. Very good smoke. Rich, earthy, cocoa, and lots of smoke.

    One more, Camacho Triple Maduro. I think it was kuzi who described it as "refined power" and I think that nails it. Definitely full flavor, and you can feel the power near the end, but it is a balanced, smoother smoke. I am smoking one now, and they are just really damn good.

    JDN DC is a sure contender... Your eyes will start to droop and you'll feel a little buzz. Another one is the Cu-Avana Intenso original. That sucker knocked me OUT!

    I will agree with the jdn dark. I will also note that this cigar has a lot of flavor to go with that power. The regular jdn is also a very good and balanced cigar in my opinion. Both are worth a shot.

    Jim, you you know that I am not a big fan of strong and overly strong cigar but I will drop a name because you have asked- Warlock blended by Omar Ortez. However, it has good flavors and aroma. It has a strong and zesty sun- grown Ecuadorian Criollo wrapper, Nicaraguan Binder with Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. Omar used a lot of ligero in it.
  • rzamanrzaman Posts: 2,650 ✭✭✭
    IMO, it is better than JDN Dark Antano in terms of balanced flavors and aroma with decent complexity.

    Thanks, sounds awesome! I don't like them all the time but every now and again, I need a kick! A good time to pull one out is after a marathon herf... after the taste buds are just about shot! I really like a stong cigar in the sense of strength, flavor, and aroma.

    Camacho tripple Maduro is a beast! or a Cain F or NUB Dub. these two are just a consitant BAM of ass knocking the whole time

    The Opus #5 killed me on an empty stomach. The Opus **** Power Ranger kicked me in the face on a full stomach. Last summer I thought it might be a good idea to try a Tat M80 on a fairly empty stomach....after going for a jog. REALLY bad idea. After that, I was on the couch with a cold, wet cloth on my head for about 15 min.

    Lol! My same story except I had a Gurhka Titan and man, I felt dizzy! I kept thinking, "I have got to get rid of these!"

    CuAvana Intensus is a good one. And don't forget My Father.

    Rocky Patel The Edge is pretty potent. Make sure you eat first. Then smoke it real slow.

    I had a Padilla 1932 a couple of years ago, the flavors were so intense I couldn't take it and had to put it down less than half way through. Way over my head. Don't know if that was a consistant profile for them or just my experience.

    The Cain Double FF was an ass-kicker, to me at least.
    Light 'em up.

    The MF LB 1922 is definitely one of the best stronger cigars on the market. I find the petite robusto (4.5x50) to be very enjoyable...it's slow burning, so I usually get about 45 minutes out of them. The larger vitolas are great as well...after a meal of course. The MOW Puro Authentico is also one of my favorite pepper bombs. I'm not a big RP fan, but the Edge Corojo is great. Don't overlook the Camacho Corojo. It's known for its strength, but it's also very balanced. The original JDN Anta

    When I was newer to the hobby I had a La Gloria Cubana Serie R after work that did some damage.
  • StsepasStsepas Posts: 475
    I tried a punisher and had to put it out. Now mind you I smoke LFD DL-700's by the box! That punisher was brutle lips and tongue were tingling like crazy!!!

    Friday I had a Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Maduro and it kicked my butt! It was after working out, had a protein shake and then went sit out in the sun with my stogie and a book. I started feeling weak on the final third, so I went inside and had to lay on the floor with a cool wet rag on my head.
