Favorite cigars......Visually!

SleevePlzSleevePlz Goodrich, MIPosts: 6,249 ✭✭✭✭
Hey everybody, 

Since this sub-forum is practically dead, I thought we could "review" some cigars in a way that everyone can participate. With no weight given to taste, what are your favorite cigars visually? Feel free to decide if you want to focus on the cigar itself, the band(s), presentation like a tubo, box, jar, etc. 

My first is a very normal cigar that happens to come in a vitola that most don't even notice. The LFD DL Churchill Especial. Nice oily wrapper with a pigtail cap. I'm a sucker for the little details.

I'll share more of my favs over time, but what y'all got for me?

    I love the band on Caldwell's Long Live the King.

    I've always liked the waxy sheen on the san andreas wrappers.

    The size, proportions, and overall shape of the Fuente Hemingway signature are exceedingly pleasant to my eye. And to my palate, as well. It's what I'm smoking as I type this...   B)

    The Behike is simply cigar porn.  The best part is the the experience matches the expectation to me.

    Maybe some day when I grow up I'll be able to smoke a Behike....  :p

    Here is a neat video showing the detail that goes into making some of the LFD cigars.

    Appearance and name only (can't say by taste as I've yet to try).

    I like the look, flavor, and background of this one (I still have a few left as well):

    I kinda like the Island Jim... shaggy foot and pencil point cap. Rustic, but unique.

    Any good? I passed on a deal on those a while back but was going to grab a couple sometime in the future.

    Send me your addy @CharlieHeis and I'll gladly send you one to try.

    I like them. Similar to the Leaf by Oscar. Nice smoke.

    I think my favorite cigar to look at is a Behike. Just such a smooth wrapper.

    I really like the look of the Man O War Armada Warhorse. Or the MUWAT. They are some huge cigars. Didn't realize they came THAT big until I saw em. xD

    I think the Oliva Master Blend 3 is a gorgeous cigar. The wrapper and the band combo is just visually appealing to me.

    You should check out the MB1 and MB2. They used a laser to etch a symbol onto the wrapper leaf. Super unique.

    this gives me a good excuse to rummage through the humi's so i can snap some pics....


    but off the top of my head:

    favorite cigars based on the shape appearance alone (not taking band into account): 
    1) anything with a pig-tail cap  2) lfd chisel vitola   3) most box-pressed cigars 
     
    favorite bands:
    1) san miguel, absolutely stunning.  2) man o war pa, simple but cool.  3) laranja, love the orange color.

    I had one. Gone... (smoked) but I searched the net and found a picture of it. 

    Cuban Stock Exquisito Bleicoso Limited Edition

    I found a box the other day on a website. Ordered it and they called 20 minutes later to be say the stock was not correct. 0 balance. This was a very good cigar. I wish I could have aged some I bet they get even better.

    Thanks for the pic. I don't have any left of either and I didn't feel like digging for an old pic. I managed to pick a few boxes of those a couple years ago and shared a bunch with the fellas here. Really nice sticks and definitely worth the cash if you come across them.

    Oh crap. My memory must be going cause I was going to ask where you found them. Lol. I know the MB1 didn't come from me because both times I found them they were churchills.

    Lol it happens it was in the summer of 14 so that was a while ago.  The one did not come from you, but they only had a couple and I cleaned them out.  that one is my last, sad face for sure.
