If $$$ was no object ?

If cash on hand was an absurd amount, say winning a 50 million dollar lottery.

What cigars would you smoke? Opus X all day? LFD? Davidoff? Cubans? A custom blend from your favorite manufacturer?  Open a b&m to have your pic from the humi?? Not change your everyday cigars, but buy the entire luxury collection from CCOM just to try them??

    I'd buy a few of the luxury collection. I'd buy a lot of Opus X and Cubans but i'd  still smoke a lot of the same stuff I do now, but I'd be buying boxes instead of fivers. And I'd have a few wineadors.

    Multiple boxes of Caldwell, Roma Craft,  Viaje, Crowned Heads, Tatuaje and the like.

    I'd like to think money wouldn't change me at all. I'd like to think I'd be much like Phil Robertson  (without the beard but with stubble) and like Jace Robertson almost get kicked out of Trump tower because they thought he was homeless (but no ambition to go anywhere near Trump or his tower).

    Granted I have a newb palate. But in all honesty I enjoy some $5 to $10 smokes just as much as a $20+. I may be wrong but the only way I don't see me smoking a 5 Vegas miami, A , AAA , tat tattoo, flor de los antilles, four kicks, Jericho hill and new world (just to name a few) is if I quit smoking or they quit making them. Some the higher end stuff I plan to save for special occasions.  Also most my purchases would still be by hawking the deals and such. I hate paying full price for anything.

    I know I'd still work, just the way I'm wired. Would give me the opportunity to do more for charity for sure.

    Im with both of these guys so far... I would still smoke my regular cheapy favorites and maybe dabble in the higher end blends. BUT I would TOTALLY dump a grand lump sum in the Luxury Collection! I love collecting things so for me it would be for more of the collecting aspect instead of the smoking aspect.

    I would by the collection of the Month.  As in @jliu

    As a newb i would be able to try out a lot more of the cigars i've been reading about.
    I would have to think clean drinking water for everyone. That's always tugged at my heart strings. Sad to think about all the people without good water.

    What??  You mean none of you guys would be buying Mr. Hansotia's HMR at $750 each?  I'm surprised...!!

    And while we're on the subject, has anyone noticed that the Opus X gets mentioned a lot but I can't recall the last time anyone referred to a God of Fire. Why do you suppose that is?   B)

    Everytime I wonder past that Gurkha I wonder how many bite. NOWAY in hell I'd drop $750 on a cigar, especially if it had Gurkha on the band.

    I enjoyed a two year old God Of Fire last week, maby the week before, but damn it was amazing.  Any way I would just be able to buy more of what I already do.  Instead of spreading out my purchases throuout the year I would just buy what I want when I want.  I also probably would not get in as much trouble as I do, right @Usaf06?

    The funny thing is, that for a long time it was listed at $400.00 here.  Must not have been popular so they raised the price, probably worked too.

    I agree with @johnnyB, I have a few higher end cigars aging right now but have not had a chance to try many of those.
  • CharlieHeisCharlieHeis Posts: 8,166 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Never had a God of Fire before, Marty, so it wasn't on my short list. But yeah, I'd be buying quite a few of those as well.

    @Patrickbrick .. At one point I believe they had MSRP $1500 on that thing... Like most that brand it's comical to watch them sell at 1/3 or less of MSRP. 1 for sure thing about it is you would be getting a well aged cigar if you did buy it. I will keep my eye on them and when they drop to $10 I may bite, would still feel like I'm getting a raw deal tho.

    If money were no object, I'd try everything on the planet (I wanted to try) and probably end up having a blend made for me.

    Thanks to all for the many replies to my first discussion post. I am a bit surprised that no one has wanted to open their own store and have a personal walk in humi and all the options it entails. @peter4jc would be the only beans served at my place!!

    I just read the half wheel review of HMR. I died, it was hilarious!

    Partagas 150 humidor full
    In Fumo Pax
    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    If money was no object, I would buy a sampler of the highest end smokes I could find... and send them to Loon Lake. :)
    I like the way you think.

    I'd buy a poolidor. 

    Poolidor; a tank type humidor to keep cigars submerged in water for maximum flavorization potential.

    I'd buy Casa Fuente and smoke all the Fuente Lanceros every damn day. I'd move Todd's 20 count there and we'd drink beer and smoke all damn day. You're all welcome to visit and stay at Caesars Palace on me for one EPIC Herf.

    Lots of Davidoff cigars! I'd also have a few boxes in stock at all times of: Ashton VSG, Padron 64/26 & FR, and some La Aurora Preferidos maduros. I'd also fly by private plane to Cuba and sample the forbidden wares they have to offer since I have only had the opportunity to smoke two ISOM cigars and I'm sure one was fake.
