    I bought my fist full, unopened box the day before yesterday. I was torn between the Fuente Churchill Maduros and the Double Chateau Maduro. I got the Chateau, though I would probably be better off with the slightly leaner Churchill for a frequent stogie. It felt nice to be the one to first open the box... usually when I buy that many I've gotten a box full of mixed since whatever I was looking for wasn't in stock unopened.

    BTW, I'd actually forgotten about this link http://www.herfersparadise.net/porta...hp?name=Forums Herfer's Paradise. A real nice cigar forum.

    Default A great new Cigar !!!

    Gents, My local shop, JR Cigars, Marchwood, Pa just got in a shipment of a Nicaraguan Puro called 'Perdomo' (lot23). These beauties might just be the best buy of the decade !! The marriage of Nicagraguan filler, binder, and wrapper on this cigar is superb. The tobacco was grown in 2000, harvested in '01, fermented till '02 and then aged till'06. Sizes range from a Robusto, Belicoso, up to a Toro and Churchill. All sell for LESS than $5 a stick here in Pa !!!

    Out of the box my Churchill was absolutely delicious, a med to full bodied smoke with plenty of interesting flavor right up to the finish. I've bought another box put it in my locker to age even further for a few months.

    By the way cigar lovers, now is a good time to stockpile about, oh,
    10 years worth of stogies. I will put away a few hundred sticks in a
    cooler converted to humidor before January.

    In a rare Bush veto, a 256% tax increase on cigars was narrowly
    avoided last month. That would have equated to about $3 per cigar
    on the top-end types discussed in this thread. It's pretty much a
    given that this tax, or an even higher one, will pass next session.
    The original SCHIP bill last June proposed a $10 per cigar tax.

    Which brings us to the ol' "Desert Island" / "End of
    Civilization" list. You know the drill. You have 30 days to
    collect all the cigars you will smoke for the rest of your life.
    What do you buy?

    Okay, I went through my cigar band collection to refresh
    my memory. Here's my first draft...

    • Arturo Fuente King B 6x55ring ($120 box of 18)
    • Ashton VSG Spellbound 7.5x54ring ($300 box of 24)
    • La Flor Coronado Double Corona 7x50ring ($162 box of 24)
    • Padron 1964 Anniversary Pyramid 6.7x52ring ($340 box of 25)
    • Padron 1926 Pyramid Maduro 6.7x52ring ($340 box of 20)
    • Perdomo Cabinet Series Torpedo 7x45ring ($180 box of 25)
    • Rocky Patel Vintage 1992 Torpedo 6.25x52ring ($160 box of 20)
    • San Cristobal 7.25x49ring ($212 box of 22)

    That's about 178 cigars and costs about $1,800 (owie!).
    But such a stash should last me about 7 years given that
    I only smoke about 24 cigars a year.

    I'll probably forego the top-end Padrons and triple-up on
    the La Flor Coronados. It's such an awesome cigar at an
    unbelievable price.

    Then again, premiere stogies are hardest hit by punative
    100% tax rates. This list should probably be only the best
    of the best. The average smokes will be expensive, but not
    insanely so. Hm, this requires more thought.

    Okay stogie lovers, what did I overlook?

    I gotta feelin' this list is gonna grow faster than my bank
    account. I forgot one of my favorite milder smokes which
    will have to go in the cooler...

    H.Upmann Vintage Camaroon Toro 6x54ring ($125 box of 25)

    Twitch, is this the 11/18 your prefer?

    Camacho 11/18 Maduro 6x52ring ($145 box of 18)

    I've not tried it yet, but I'm planning to head to the cigar
    shop tomorrow after a fill up at the assault weapon store.
    I hope they have some Camachos in stock.

    That's the baby, it's a figurado and downright tasty ! Camacho is now offering them in boxes of '21'.

    Brian, I concur with your choices, the Pedrons are excellent cigars and with respect to the Perdomo's, try their 'Lot 23's', a Nicaragua wrapped beauty with the body and soul to die for. Get them out of their cellophane and let them age for a couple of months and you will be further impressed !

    I worked at a cigar store for 3 1/2 years I have had almost every cigar and enjoyed almost everyone. like others I would love too smoke in my listening room but just can't bring myself to do it even with a vent system I think it would still smell and I know the smoke is not good for av stuff. I have found this is a good find lately it's called the CAO America.I also like to smoke a pipe.
