I made a comment to Sketch this morning regarding La Palina and it being one of my favorite companies and it got me thinking. I will smoke and enjoy about anything that comes through my humidor especially when it’s bombed or passed or won and sent to me etc. But when I actually go to spend my own money I notice that I tend to only buy from a dozen or so companies and those are my favorites. I enjoy about anything sent to me and will smoke it and likely enjoy it, but when I spend my own money I notice I have expensive taste lol. What are yours and who do you normally gravitate towards?

mine are:

Tatuaje (and sub brands)
Fuente (mostly Opus X, Don Carlos etc)
My Father/DPG
Davidoff (and sub brands like AVO, Zino)
Viaje
Black Label (and sub brands)
Crowned Heads
Caldwell
Matt Booth/Room101 (what’s left of it I guess)
Roma Craft
La Palina
Padron
Cuban (Bolívar is my fav but like all of them)

    Basically the same list as yours with the addition of AJ. Mainly for me the Ave Maria line and Foundation Cigars

    I'd have to add Oliva to the list.  And Partagas, at least the #1 and #2 Cameroon, some of their others I could do without.

    I forgot to add Warped but for some reason I always see them as associates with Caldwell even though I know they aren’t. 

    I like AJ stuff and some of the Oliva and Partagas mentioned too, I just don’t find myself buying them often either though. That said I do still very much enjoy smoking them.

    To be honest I only “buy” MF/DPG, La Palina and EPC.

    but of course I have purchased other brands but not as frequent as my top 3.

    Marcas.  LOL.

    I guess it's good to expand our vocabulary.  Then we can talk like Steve Saka, and pretend we're in the know and use words the ordinary smoker doesn't know.

    I'll pivotize my cigar database and get back to you. :D 

    Off the top of my head the following stand out in no particular order

    Warped
    Espinosa
    BLTC
    Cuban Bolivar
    La Palina
    Dunbarton/Saka
    Foundation
    EPC
    DPG
    Roma Craft
    Illusione
    Viaje
    Crowned Heads

    It may not be politically correct to like some of these brands, this list is based on cigar taste and consistency alone.
    I'll gladly bomb you Tuesday for an Opus today.

    I’m surprised that I had forgotten about Dunbarton tobacco and trust, but I really like Steve’s products as well, just forgot to put it in there. 

    Seems that so far for the the most part there’s a lot of overlap, though I don’t think that’s all that surprising.
