Finally getting back to the point where the occasional cigar won't break the bank, so yay.  In any case, smoked two Rocky Patel 1961's, a La Aurora 107 and a Gurkha Assassin and an Illusione petite corona in the past month or so.  Of the four lines, I'd say the La Aurora took the cake, followed closely by the Illusione.  Actually, the Illusione was reminiscent of a Cohiba Siglo I.

 

Cheers all,

Zach

Anyone wanna recommend a good, cheap cigar? I'm done with cigarettes for a while (or possibly for good).

What is cheap?  For some people, $50 a box is cheap, for some $200 a box is cheap.  It depends on your threshhold for pain...much like head-fi

Just checking in

Smoked some good stuff the day before my birthday:

Padron 45th Maduro
Liga Privada T52 belicoso
Tatuaje Reserva J21
Liga Privada No.9 robusto

 

and a 2005 Opus X double robusto and Ashton ESG 22 Year on my birthday

 

 

Got a box of Tatuaje 7th Reservas coming Wednesday, they are supposed to be incredible.

 

Smoking a lot of the Liga Privada stuff now that I can get them around $200 a box.

 

Oliva V is still a favorite as well.

Montecristo Edmundo poses with my Slim Solo ES5 rig and a four shot ice latte. Life is indeed good.

Isn't THAT the truth!!

 

As an FYI, once upon a time a the Casa De Habanos store in Windsor CA, one could get "seconds" of a variety of Cubans.  I expect this is probably the same in other CdH stores too.  They were less than half the price of a comparable smoke (e.g. A Partagas Lusitania cost $40 US at the time, and a comparable second was less than $20), and the quality was IMHO pretty good.  They were bundled in runs of 50, and available as single smokes too.  You never knew what it once was destined to be before a funny spot on the wrapper or something similar sent it to the "seconds" pile, but sometimes the proprietor would know what it likely was (e.g. we smoked some that could have been Bolivar Royal Coronas). Once in a while we'd get one that didn't draw so well, but I've paid full boat for the genuine article and had that problem.

 

It's been a few years since I've been back (travelling accross the bridge into Canada is a hassle since 9/11) but for our regular travellers into Canada you might find a nice bargain.
