Boutique recommendations

TexasToastTexasToast Posts: 37 ✭✭

Been really liking the my father stuff as of late (le bijiou, Antilles, aroma de Cuba mi amor, mf Connecticut). I’ve liked these more than others recently but want to try some good “boutique” brands that produce a lot of good flavor. Any suggestions will help also buying the Coleman xtreme for my cigars has been a god send lol

    @Vision Been hearing about that morphine quite a bit. Any suggestions for other cigars by black label? Same with crowned head and far as Steve saka goes I’ve been itching to get my hands on one of his blends. Been hearing a lot about room 101 as well

    I still enjoy the Ezra Zion stuff, but they’re overpriced and overly gimmicky. I stopped buying them when they stopped the blessed leaf stuff, but every time I get one they have been tasty.

    I would add San Cristobal to what's already been said. Also, took me awhile to realize that Steve Saka translates to Dunbarton etc. on the list of brands here at CCOM.

    Oh, and if you're wondering why they'd name a cigar Morphine, try one and hold on to your wallet.

    Their core lines are great sticks as well and never talked about.

    The NBK is probably my favorite black label stick, but more than half of the ones I've ever smoked have tunnelled on me so I'm done with them.

    A lot of people seem to be mad at Ezra Zion for their emails more than for their cigars. The emails suck, the cigars are awesome! That is the true boutique type stuff right there. Small runs, lots of variations, etc.

    Dude also just look And the what are you smoking this morning this afternoon and tonight threads. That's where we share all the stuff that we're smoking.

    Don't look ↑

    Ezra Zion used to come “ready” to smoke. Now you have to sit on them for 6 months. **** them and their pump and dump, we found more stock antics. This is only and simply my opinion. Also they shipped cigars once with glitter on the packaging. What cigar smoker wants glitter on their ****!
