There is a Man O' War puro authentico (AJ Fernandez blend) in the package coming your way. I think that fits the bill. Dont let the small size fool you, it's an asskicker. Wouldn't call it a complex smoke though.
Edit: it's the corona with a black band and spartan helmet. No words

Tried the Man O War tonight and it was definitely a nice stick, adding to the list. Price is good on these @ $95 for 24 robusto's on famous with the code. If only I had some humidor space, they have 20 LFD double Ligero for $75 and free shipping as well

Ezra Zion Tantrum. It's only 4.44x44 but I smoked it for almost 2 hours (I am a slow smoker so that's probably not typical). The website says it's loaded with medio tiempo and I believe it. Very full bodied and flavored.

Definitely try the Roma Craft sticks again. The Cromagnon is one of my favorites, and the Cromagnon Aquitaine blends are supposed to be a step up in strength.

The neanderthal is also quite good.

I think most any of the Viaje stuff would probably qualify!
@BasicTek the Litto Gomez Small Batch is a yearly release, so it’s not likely that you will find the 3, this years release is available now and is unnumbered.
I sent Tim a Litto from this year. He probably didnt know that's what it was.
Have you tried them yet? They smell pretty fresh. (Lots of ammonia) Gonna rest them for a few months

I'm adding Daughters of the Wind Pony Express to the list. I didn't think this would be a bomb but it was almost too strong for an after lunch smoke.

After today I have the following on the way. Thanks for all the great suggestions in this thread. When I get more humidor space I'll look for some more that i missed

Stolen Throne Crook of the Crown Robusto
Viaje Skull & Bones 2019 Johnny Blaze
1502 Cigars Black Gold Toro
Daughters of the Wind Pony Express
FQ Proper Corona Gorda
Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder Brimstone
Tatuaje Fausto S.Churchill
Man O' War Toro
601 Green Label La Fuerza
Oliva Cain F 550

LFD Litto Gomez Small Batch. If you’re looking for full bodied and lots of flavor, these are the gold standard!!!

Tatuaje RC series! 184 and 233, but if you can get the Euro exclusive!

Tatuaje Brown Label Havana Cazadores (they’re wet packed from the factory so it intensifies the flavor above the rest of the line)

The Tat Cojonu would fit the bill as well.

My Father The Judge

Others that fit the bill but I didn’t see listed...

Fuente Don Carlos
DPG Black Label (pepper Bomb)
Illusione Ultra (OneOff and OG Documents are better, but not as strong)
Jaime García Reserva Especial
LFD Andalusia Bull
L’Atalier (several things there, but I like the Selection Especial and some of the Surrogates)

I'm just finishing my 1st Muestra De Saka Nacatamale and it definitely should be added to this list

I took inspiration from this thread and grabbed some of these sticks since I'm in the same boat. The 601 La Bomba and Green I didn't think were that strong. Was really looking for something that would make me sweat and give that tickle in the back of my throat.

The Hoyo blacks were pretty good in the strength area, but lacking the spice I like. I was very impressed by the rolling job on those though. For all 5, the draw was perfect, tobacco was packed dense, gave lots of smoke, and were long smokes as well. For like $18 for a fiver, I'd say these are a pretty good steal.

The JDN Antano 1970 felt like a medium to me and the body wasn't what I expected. However, the My Father Le Bijou was amazing. I think it could be just a smidge stronger, but the flavor profile was perfect. If only they didn't cost so much :(.
