So if you were to pick up one pair of Shell LWB which would be preferred:  Whiskey, Cigar, or Ravello..  Wife has said if I purchase a pair, I am done for a while, so want to make a educated choice.

I'm pretty sure most people would say ravello but cigar might be more versatile.

What color would convince her that you need another?

Managed to get some rare shells in last 2-3 months. Somebody asked for comparison of Whiskey Shell and Ravello Shell from the recent run so here they are! Cigar LWB from AOC, Whiskey  LWB from TSM, Ravello LWB from Alden DC and Ravello PTB from Alden SF. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Very nice collection. The colors have great contrast.

The best LWB color is Cigar IMO.  In fact, there are only 2 makeups where Color 8 is not King: LWB (Cigar) and LHS (Whiskey)

Do you already have color 8? If not, that would be my choice. Of the colors you listed, I would go with cigar.

So should I pass on the Whiskeys if given the chance to purchase... Would love all three, but that might require a Powerball win... Anyone have Cigars in the pipeline as my wait on the Whiskey list was all of about one month...

I would do Ravello personally kind of the happy medium. :-)

They may be ravello, but they also might be lighter than the whiskey LWBs that just came out. :D

some of the new whiskey shell looks verry close carmina's "dark cognac" shell (not the shoemart lwb's though)
