There is no crisis that a good cigar can't cure.

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    Kind of a toss up between perfecto and robusto for me.

    Robusto
    Robusto for most cigars, but it does depend for me.  There a few where the toro is better, or a corona, or a short Churchill.  For the most part though robusto.

    If they're made correctly I do love lanceros, but typically robustos are a good standard.

    Corona
    Corona, then toro and Robusto. I like a lancero every now and then. Never a gordo.

    ...Corona Gorda...

    Corona
    Corona gorda, or Corona grande or lancero, my 1st Choice is a 50 ring or less, but it's also a mood thing.

    Torpedo
    Torpedo, if it's a true torpedo such as a Presidente, followed by Churchill and Gran Corona.

    I prefer a medium ring gauge. It would seem everybody is competing for who can make the thickest these days. It's not about the size boys, it's how you use it  ;)

    Robusto
    I dig a closed foot. I like how easy it is to get it started and they burn evenly from the get out.

    Corona, Lancero, then Robusto for me
  • Amos_UmwhatAmos_Umwhat West TNPosts: 4,787 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Perfecto
    I really like Perfectos, followed by Toro and lancero, which are about equal, depending on the blend.  I like churchills, if the ring gauge doesn't get too large.  I don't dislike robustos, they just leave me wanting.

    Corona
    I have come to prefer the 1/2 corona. Great flavors and I am done in one hour. It's hard to set two hours + aside to enjoy a cigar.
  • First_WarriorFirst_Warrior N.C. MountainsPosts: 1,894 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I like all vitola's. Sometimes i want a small smoke and sometimes I want a large one. After a steak i like a full strength toro and after fish a medium strength robusto. A corona in the morning and a big torpedo as the sun sets. I don't care for jumbo ring sizes so I like most anything well built and well flavored in 36 to 56 ring.

    ^^^This is a good description^^^, I like it.  I realized after voting above that on long winter nights I'm more prone to Churchills and figurados. 

    It's like music.  My Pandora profile includes John Prine, Beatles, Poco, etc., but also YoYo Ma, J.S. Bach, Boston, Aerosmith, Lucinda Williams, and on it goes.  So, I tell folks I like anything done well.  I used to say I didn't like RaP, but then I heard Santana and the guy from Matchbox 20, well, It was well done!

    Corona
    Its a mood/time thing for me.
    I generally shy away from away ring gauge over 56
     but it also depends on how much time I have to smoke.
    If I don't have much time I will choose a robusto or a small Corona.
     if I've got all night I will generally choose a Toro or a torpedo.

    Churchill
    This is dependent on whether I'm trying a cigar or already like the cigar. If I'm trying, I'd prefer a Toro. If I already like a the cigar, then I'd prefer a Churchill or Presidente. I take the time to actually smoke it out and I want something that's going to last and last and last.

    That said, I'm not uppity about it either and definitely been surprised at the time it takes to smoke certain brands of the shorter lengths. Like Nubs for instance. Those blew me away. But in general, I just like a Churchill length cigar. Ring size? 54 and up preferred. And I don't think I've found a ring size too big quite yet. Though it would depend on what I'm doing.

    If I'm sitting around, hell give me one 12 feet long and 6ft in diameter and I will find a way to puff at it. But if I'm up and walking, then something I can carry with ease is preferred. xD

    Perfecto
    I agree with everyone that mood, time, cigar/make and atmosphere all make a difference.

    I think I tend to favor perfectos, because of the Hemingway cigars.
    My next preference would be robusto.
    Then corona or Torpedo, depending on what it is and how much time I have.

    I find it interesting on what people prefer. 
    A long time ago, my preference would have first been toro, but as time went on, I discovered that the smaller (perfecto, robusto, corona) were more to my liking.

    The figuardo and gordo are ones that, while I will smoke them on occasion, they aren't my favorites and will buy an alternative size if available.
