    I have had sooo many different sticks but the Las Calaveras 2015, La Nox, and Davidoff Puro d Oro stood out

    For 2016 I'd like to try new cigars.  This will give me an idea of what cigars to try and broaden my selection in smokes.

    I would also add the La Palina Goldies and family selections are excellent along with the Warped brands. Have you tried the La Colmena

    No I haven't.  The number of brands I smoked this year, I can probably count on one hand lol

    Found a RYJ Anejo in a truckstop humi in MO.. Was pretty good, would like to find some and put some age on em. Seems none of the big warehouses have em. May have to find a mom&pop shop with em online.

    tough call ive enjoyed quite a few this year. but most recently I torched an LFD La nox  that was an excellent smoke. ive enjoyed several San Cristobals , Always enjoy a good Kristoff usually maduro. but I would imagine youvesampled all these .
    no matter where you go, there you are.

  • avengethisavengethis Sorry, I ate all your bacon!Posts: 5,652 ✭✭✭✭✭
    In no particular order I would have to say...

    San Cristobal CC from Jiunn (I forget which one it was but it was incredible)
    Tatuaje TAA 2015
    Crowned Heads The Angels Anvil 2015

    Team O'Donnell FTW!

    For just new releases in 2015, I would have to say:
    angels anvil
    La Palina Pasha
    My Father 5th anniversary
    This was s difficult list to compile due to the amazing selection that came out in 2015.  I'm sure in a couple of hours I will remember one that I forgot about and won't be able to edit.

    I found the Aquitaine and cromagnon much more enjoyable than the neanderthal. But I still really enjoyed the neanderthal.

    I sent you a Jericho Hill lancero, DZR. Smoke it if you haven't taken the X-Acto knife to it yet.

    I have to add one to my list, I've smoked a 5er of the Sobremesa in the last week and it's my #1 of the year, terrific cigar!

    Unfortunately I didn't smoke all that much in 2015. I'll have to fix that in 2016. I'm already off to a good start though.
     
    In no particular order I really really liked: 

    JD Howard Reserve
    Vegas Robaina Famosos(cc)
    L'atelier Lancero
