I've always been mostly a Nakhla smoker since it's inexpensive and has is one of the few non-washed brands that I can find. Lately though, I've been finding it to be a bit bland.

Tangiers brand is outstanding but has to be ordered online.

I don't know - I order it in cafes, I usually ask for Bahraini, cause it has a good reputation, and my favorites are grape, double apple and mango.

Punch are wonderful. I knew from my first one that they'd become a favorite. I've got a Punch Corona waiting for an occasion to smoke, and would have it tonight if I hadn't overdone it on the weekend.

Last night, I smoked a Bolivar Coronas Junior that was an amazingly flavorful cigar for one so small. The best way I can describe it is as a rich mocha. It went beautifully with the nip of Meukow XO I'd chanced upon earlier in the evening.

What are good cheap cigars? Like <$10?
post #141 of 9932
Where's a good smokeshop in NYC? I want to hit it up with my girl and check it out. I have only smoked cigars a couple of times before but have always wanted to indulge myself into the cigar world. Any tips on where to go and what to smoke?

cant give you advice on where to smoke, but i can on what to.

for starters i would recommend:

Padron 2000 or 3000 - try both the natural and maduro wrappers
Rocky Patel 1990
Perdomo Reserve Cameroon
CAO Brazilia
Macanudo Gold Label - these are a lighter tasting cigar, not my pref, but i like them every once and awhile.

that should give you a good base to start. i don't have much experience with the extreme high end cigars and i feel like it would be hard to justify spending $20-30 per stick. i do have some Fuente Opus Xs that i am saving for that special occasion, but thats about it. i have heard great things about the Padron 1926 and 1964 series.

I wil smoke $6 cigars, and I try not to spend more than 10 in a duty free, espetially if that is priced per box. you can get pretty damn good cigars for 9-10 a stick by box in duty free stores

Best Cigar Lounge: Club Macanudo
"Club Mac", as it's better known, is a restaurant, bar, and cigar lounge on the Upper East Side.

Never been to either, but it'd be worth a look I imagine.

Don't even bother with the Maduro 5...it's pure hype. The only Cohiba worth your buck these days is the Siglo VI. Heading to Tokyo tonight at 3AM and coming back on Sunday, hope i'll enjoy some good smokes while i'm there. Staying at Oakwood Shinjuku.

I had one a few weeks ago (or, to be accurate I had a cohiba maduro of about the same gauge, but I wasn't sure what it was called) and loved it. but I paid less than $20 for it.


what large gauge maduros do you like now?
post #149 of 9932
well the term "maduro" is used very loosely...often times people just refer to a darker cigar as that. The thing with the Cohibas is they used a darker wrapper but that's about it...put some black band on the regular cohiba band and package it in a nice grand looking box. Pure marketing... I am not particularly familiar with the maduro sector as it seems most non-Cuban cigars are marketed as such and my expertise does not extend there beyond a very superficial understanding from what I smoked in college. Large ring gauge cigars that are good: Cohiba Siglo VI, Cuaba Diademas (well not exactly large ring gauge but the middle part is phat), Montecristo Petit Edmundos, Ramon Allones Specially Selected. Generally with Cuban cigars you don't really see many large ring gauges like you do with NCs.

yeah, I usually either smoke nicaraguan maduros or cubans - mostly MC 2's and cohoba robustos. I was intreged with trying cuban maduros, but I can live without it.

I really want to get a box of pitit edmundos - I have enjoyed edmundos and saw PEs at about 7-8 bucks a stick in a duty free, and they look like a reasonable time to smoke.
