    I'm assuming you don't mean this...



    But since cigars are so subjective, I'm not sure you'll get a clear answer... depends on what you like.

    There's a lot out there, what do you like right now and we can point you to some new ones?

    100% this--tastes can change. I loved Nub's Connie 464 when I started out, now not so much! 

    If if you want some fuller stick reccomendations; Viaje (any), Don Pepin Garcia (if his, his daughter, or for Tatuaje), any of the Liga Privada line, el Geugenese, or Black Label Trading Co.

    But truthfully, I am already wandering into the weeds. It's all relative to your palate. Right now, I would be so bold to recommend any Maduro or even any Ligero stick, because those are the ones I have been enjoying. Hell, I would even recommend any stick from the ISOM.

    If you wanna glean some fantastic recommendations, check out the 'What are you smoking this [morning/afternoon/night]' threads. 

    Hope me this helps a little!

    People ask me all the time, "What's your favorite coffee?" because they think I know coffee and if it's my favorite, it'll translate into their favorite too.  So I always answer, "Whatever is in my cup, that's my favorite".

    The same can hold true similarly to cigars.  Until I realized that my cigar tastes ran closer to @avengethis' or @Stubble's and not so much to @Patrickbrick's, I was frustrated buying or trying sticks based on Patrick's recommendations... not entirely, but he likes cigars full of pop and impact, and I like a med-full.

    Hey 0,

    Maybe we can convert this fella. 

    After all, the Chevy Bel Air is a classic for a reason.

    What are your classic stick suggestions?

    Well, I like Torano's.
    The 1916 is one that seems to be likable to most folks.
    There are a ton of Fuente's cigars that are under $7 at B&Ms and really reasonable online.

    The problem, as was stated, is that just as someone likes a Filet mignon, others like a well grilled hamburger. 

    And then there is the problem where one chef makes a killer Filet mignon, another ruins it. Same with cigars. You can't always assume that because one cigar has a certain wrapper, they will all be good. 

    To me, buying a cigar because it's expensive and WILL be good is fooling yourself.

    Price and taste Illusione Rothchilds or anything My Father.

    Pricey range Opus X Angels Share or you can dab in anything on the ISOM. Unless its a Churchill I stay aways from RYJ's. 

    However before you buy anything i would get a sampler or trade for some of them. You may not like what others recommend. Make friends, it seems everyone here gives cigars away lol.

    You should sign up for the newsletter also. There is thread about it.

    You want the best NC IMO.

    Casa Fuente Lancero. GL getting them though.

    Yeah, also drinking the same type of coffee day after day can get old... I like variety.  Some go so far as to drink different coffees based on the time of day (a morning cup, afternoon, etc.) just like some people like to start their day with a milder Connie cigar and savor a stronger cigar later in the day. 

    The Italians can be strict about coffee, cappuccinos are reserved for the morning cup among purists, almost a breakfast in itself and it's mainly espressos for the rest of the day.

    That said, it's worth figuring out what are your go-to sticks, I'm in the process of that myself and I'm wondering if it's worth laying in some La Palina classics for an everyday stick.

    I like the looks of this cigar quite well. Looks like it would be very tasty. However, that wrapper (Connecticut?) looks a tad wrinkled (toothy?) and it can't be a Cuban since it has only a single cap. Other than that I'd say it's a keeper....  B)

    @peter4jc

    LOL. I had to borrow that pic. I have had one of the Lances before and getting another is way out of my price range or I need to be in Vegas. But I will always remember smoking it for sure.

    If you want the newest and best you must try Rocky Patel and Gurkha.  They are constantly coming out with new lines that are all amazing!!!!!!!!!!  (This post is meant to be sarcastic).

    I agree! Gurkhas comes out with so many different cigars, it is hard to smoke all of them. (Not because they make too many, but because they suck a$$ lol).

    @Yakster You know where I can pick up one of those for myself?

    5 Vegas Classic, very reasonable and always good.

    I find myself leaning more toward the golds or the Series A in terms of what I would choose for a daily smoke. Classic is good but I only taste straight tobacco on them.


    And I wouldn't bet on the "Highest" price as the best cigars either. I've had a bunch of different Gurkhas and I'm not sure I would buy a box even at 90% off the retail price. Most of them are 1 note. Cedar. So if you like the taste of cedar and like blowing money, have at it.

    @Loyalty On the top end price wise (for my price range) I'd have to recommend "Undercrown Shade", easily one of the better tasting cigars on the market and 200+ a box. Have at it.
