Nice. Thanks for the contribution! Could you try to put them in order if you can? It will help get their ranking correct.

I’ll have to dig out box codes and I might go back and edit this once I can look and see what I may have missed.

1. Partagas E2
2. Quai Dorsay 50
3. Cohiba Siglo I
4. Partagas D4
5. Wunderlust petit belicoso

Trinidad Reyes
Punch Punch
LFD Andalusian Bull
Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial
Fuente Anejo Shark
I edited mine a bit. I had my first Andalusian Bull today and it was certainly not my favorite flavor profile but one of the most interesting smokes I’ve ever had. Appearance, construction, draw, burn, flavor was all perfect.

I had also forgot about the wunderlust I smoked earlier this year.

Well I didn't really want to muddy the waters with my noob interpretations and lack of variety....but Jeremy is insisting all data must be entered (fukin mentats) so here's my NOOB list:

1. Laranja Reserva Corona Gorda - got this in a bomb so, definite budget smoke (for me anyhow) and it had everything I like in a smoke. Sweet, mellow, and full on freight train each pull. Never got bitter.
2. My Father LeBijou 1922 Petite Robusto - This was the first NC that made me continually look at it and wonder why I haven't been smoking cigars since I was 3.
3. Warped Maestro Del Tiempo Lonsdale - Another bomb stick, and both I received were precisely the same. I wondered if being from different folks if they would vary, so I smoked one each day, and they were great.
4. La Careme Belicoso Fino LE - I absolutely love these. I don't know if I get tricked with cream basically being in the title, or if its just a damned fine stick...but I nub em each time.
5. Sobramesa Torpedo - I've had a couple different Sobramesa, but the Torp was my favorite...again from bombs.

For my Ballin on a budget favorites for us less fiscally endowed gentlemen I will give you my favs (and screw you Jeremy) including ones Jeremy thinks are shyte.


H. Upmann AJF Robusto - Can be found regularly for under 5 a stick. Excellent stick IMHO
Tatuaje P series Robusto - Caught these for 13 bucks for a 5er....yeah. I bought em. They smoke great! Excellent quick smoke. Thanks to @irratebass as usual for advising me.
Romeo Y Julieta Mille Fleurs - Got these for under 4 a stick. Awesome sauce.


Anyhow thanks for putting this together @Glassman so I can use it for my buying guide going into winter sales!
