I like to enjoy an occasional smoke in the evening, especially after a long day at work. My favorite everyday cigar is the Flor De Copan Gordito. It is a spicy, flavorful smoke, and complements a Woodford Reserve on the rocks very well.

J&R is your friend.

They have a store right up the road from me

You know, I should actually season the humidor I bought from them a couple months ago and start using it...

+1 on the Portofino, the J&R knockoffs of Portofinos are pretty good too.

Even though they are on the high side I like anything from CAO

For the taste and $, Oynx, and I have tried many. When I travel Mexico Cubans are legal so I smoke them when there. I still enjoy Oynx, just as good IMHO. Great cigar for $5.

I love cigars. I have coolers full of them aging, since I can't control my obsession. Kinda like my gun collection, it's completely out of control! I smoke one or two a day.

Lots of good suggestions here. I smoke mostly Fuentes, Padrons, Camachos, and Habanos. Email me your address and I'll send you a sampler.

my handle at hotmail dot com.

Consuegra from JR Cigars. They are Punch Factory Seconds.

I am a notoriously cheap bastard, but I cherish a good smoke. These cigars are around $1.10 each shipped (bundles of 25) and they aren't Philly Blunts....

SMOKED MANY CIGS, CHEAP AND EXPENSEIVE. I ALWAYS COME BACK TO "AL CAPONE" RUM CIGARELLOS. I ENJOY SOMETHING NEW NOW AND AGAIN BUT THESE CAN'T BE BEAT.

Usually they are trimmed to short or they have a chip in the wrapper(very small). They smoke just as good as the firsts IMHO. D.

Gloria Cubana Serie R #5


A favorite of mine. #4 or #5 in Maduro wrapper. ~$5



Also, Carlos Torano Exodus 1959. Slightly cheaper gar. A great choice for ageing.~$4

Trinidad y Cia. Buy em on the net cheap. Not a bad smoke for .75 each (included shipping).

Davidoff No. 2

So far it's my favorite cigar, very smooth & creamy. I've been hit or miss on some of their other cigars though. I've seen them for sale anywhere form $10 to $15. Boxes come in 25s.
