Cusano M1 (Macanudo knock-off)

transplanttransplant Posts: 111 ✭✭✭
I've gotten into cigars over the past couple years.  I've been walking my daughter's bassett hound (Buford) 3X/week for much longer (he needs the exercise and it doesn't hurt me any either).

Recently, I decided that an old guy like me walking a bassett hound probably ought to be smoking a cigar when he does it.

If I'm having a smoke with a brandy after a fine meal, I don't mind doing a pricey stick, but walking the dog?  C'mon.  Anyway, I like Macanudos so I tried the M1s.  They're OK, but have much rougher edges than the Macs I've smoked.  This said, the last M1 I had was the best of the lot so I wonder if they benefit from some rest.

Anyway, if you were an old guy who was walking a good lookin' bassett 3 times a week, what would you smoke? Thanks in advance.

    I'd probably go for a NUB they last for ever and taste good and aren't too heavy to hold in my mouth if the pup requires two hands. There is also great deals on them often.

    Thanks...I wouldn't have thought of Nub. They look so small in their ads. I'll give 'em a try.

    The Nubs are short but fat and, they don't smoke all that fast. Unless,... you're smoking too fast anyway.

    Us former cigarette smokers have a tendency to smoke cigars too fast.  I'm working on this.

    Basset hounds are the best.

    Nubs are deceiving. Picked up an anthology sampler to check them out thinking they would be a quick smoke, but they turned out to be a nice, mellow stick, perfect for the 25-30 minute drive home after work. Try the Habano 560 for a longer, slightly bolder smoke.

    Nolagizmo, I almost forgot to thank you.

    At your suggestion, I bought 10 Nub Habano 464s.  Positively awesome.  Thanks.

    Gentlemen, I am glad you enjoy the Nub! 

    I feel it is a consistent enjoyable smoke and it does not break the bank. It is a keeper!

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread but have a follow up question to the op's.  
    Anyone know of a good knockoff of the Mac lines?  I bought a bundle of clones a while back and find them to be too tight, wrappers too delicate and every 3rd stick tastes extremely bitter by the 2nd inch.
