    Does anyone remember Big Butt cigars? I used to order the Gordito (4-3/4 X 54) back in the mid-90's. Apparently it was a Nicaraguan, and sometime in the late-90's it was sold to another tobacco company, possibly Altadis. I was never able to determine if the blend changed when that happened, and now they're not easy to find (especially in singles).

    I loved them at the time, but I have no idea if I'd like it today (tastes have changed, and they could be a different blend now anyways).

    Just wondering if anyone has had them (long ago or recently).

    I haven't had one since the 90's. Mild blend for a Nic and an easy smoke. Michael Richards (Kramer) from Seinfeld smoked them on the show. I haven't seen one in ages.

    I had a t-shirt back in the day when i smoked during the boom in the mid-90's. I wore it out. I remember smoking a few, but not regularly. So, I probably didn't like em too much, but I don't recall.

    Cheaper cigars.com stills carries them, as does The Cigar Store.com

    I had one last year, nothing to write home about in my opinion.

    I have an ashtray from them. Until you posted this I just thought it was some knock off name.
