im waiting for a box of R&J short churchills.

 

Nice! The Cohiba Maduro 5 Genios is a definite candidate for best cigar out there. $15 is a pretty good price.

 

I also am a big fan of the R&J Short Churchill. In fact, I have a box of them that I am enjoying right now.  smile.gif

Glad to hear it. I am amazed that they suddenly are carrying Don Pepin Garcia blue labels which are one of my absolute favorite non-Cuban cigars. Before their non-Cubans were all fairly low end. I just ordered two boxes.

got a box of oliva serie v torpedo. My first exposure to Oliva.

Perfect construction and burn.Quality is amazing.Beautiful.

I like my cigar to be rich in flavour,chewy,oily with lots of smoke. 

The oliva is peppery,long finish, a bit of a zing on the mouth,nuts and a hint of roasted coffee. Not complex which was a bit of a surprise considering the reviews i read.Medium to full and i had a nice latte with it.

not too impressed since i smoke cubans 95% of the time and i thought this would be a cheaper alternative for my cohiba maduro 5 secretos(my all time favourite) but no.

i will let them settle for a bit in my humidor hopefully they will improve a bit.

Went to my friend couple of nights ago and tried his oliva v torpedo that he had in his humidor for 7-8 months. Still the same crap to me.very dry,peppery with a distinctive burned coffee flavor.i put it down before the band point.one of the worst cigars I had flavours wise.too bad the construction and burn are excellent.
I'm definatly giving him the rest of my box.i only smoked one.

Reviving this thread...

 

I've been really getting into cigars in the past year.  I'll have about one a week.  Sit outside, poor some liquor to sip on and enjoy a good cigar.  I don't have a favorite exactly, but I've got numerous that I love.

 

I will say, has anyone had Gran Cantidad?  It's one of my favorites in a robusto and they are quite inexpensive.  I think you can get a box of 20 for like $45.  Great medium body that burns well and keeps the flavor to the very end.  Just giving a recommendation :cool:

Thanks. You reminded me to order some cigars. Double Chateau Fuente on the way.  :-)

post #1361 of 1363

You're welcome.

 

Where do head-fi'ers purchase?  Local shop, online?

 

I've bought previously at local stores but refuse to now because that gets way to expensive.  I may buy one local in case of emergency if I'm craving a specific cigar, otherwise bestcigarprices.com and jrcigars.com are where I prefer to go.

Even though our local taxes are tremendous, I typically buy locally - I want to support those businesses if I can. And we have some good shops here, I always appreciate the suggestions of the proprietors.

Over the weekend I had a Romeo Y Julieta Reserva Real Maduro... boy was that smooth.  It had a lighter body than I thought, and had hoped, but still had the great RyJ Reserva taste.
