I am buying a box of cigars and have it down to these 2:

Tatuaje Havana VI Verocu No.9 Petite Robusto

or 

My Father Le Bijou 1922 Petite Robusto

Which would you grab.  Both are the same price where i am getting them from the MF box has 23 cigars where the tat box has 20.

    I would go to the Tat Verocu.

    Depends on how fast you plan on smoking them.  In my experience the Verocu 9 did not age well, only were "good" for about 18 months. The MF fair much better as I usually don't start smoking them until they are about 18 months rested.

    However taste is very suggestive and you should buy what you like.

    With them being the same price you could always look into splitting the boxes and having both.

    i don't have a cooler and therefore don't really age things for more than 18 months other than Opus singles and things like that. Based off of other box purchases i bet these are smoked within 12 months.

    no splitsville for the same price.  have to get them from a specific sister site due to gift cards given to me and specific discounts so it is one box or the other.  

    i am pretty sure i am going with the Tatuaje.  my greedy brain was just saying "but i could get 3 more cigars for the same price, and you love both of those cigars." but  don't have any verocru in my humi and i have at least a 5er of the le bijou so ill go with the tats.

    thanks for the input guys.

    I've had the Havanas VI Victorias (a petit lancero in that same line) and found them to be creamy and delicious, with subtle honey tones. The other of course needs no introduction. 

    Both fantastic choices. Ain't life grand?

    I think you go with the Havanas and follow Ro's lead. :)

    Brian, I think Todd was saying to buy both, and split the boxes with a couple members.

    I was going to say I would like 1/2 a box of the tat if you did split.
