What's your pick as a gift? Unfortunately, I have no idea what this person likes in a cigar.

Most of the cigars in your pics are great cigars. If you are not sure I would stay away from the not for wussies sampler. I love them personally but I love bold and strong cigars but you could not go wrong with the other pics.

Yea, thats a great one! I've bought that one twice. The last four on that list, the IT, Perdomo, Slow-Aged, and the Torano are great smokes. And the ones that they show you in the picture, some of them are not the ones in sampler, just so you know. There is also this one http://www.famous-smoke.com/cigars/m...m3/kws/ZWW2571 I order from famous a lot so, no worries.

Any prefered ring gauge? I think 50 or 52 draw and taste the best. Anyone smoke cigarellos? I would like a suggestion for a good quick smoke...I have tried Macanudos and find them a good flavored quick smoke but would like to try others. Thanx!

Okay guys, I'm a little ashamed to do this, seeing as how we have been mostly sticking to premium cigars in this thread, but looking back on my first review, I did say that a 1 was phillies blunts, lol. So, anyway, I'm reviewing a sub-par cigar tonight, namely the Backwoods Honey-Berry cigars. I believe they are made near my home town of Douglassville, PA, but they are very well known around the campus too. Well, down to business.

Backwoods Honey-Berry cigarillo(?), handroll: 2.3
Taste: 3
Construction: 0
Draw: 2.3
Aroma: 4.2
Finish: 2

This cigar is available in an 8-pack for less than five dollars. This should clue everyone in on its quality right off. However, there are some very good things about this particular smoke that should be mentioned. Even as a person who usually considers himself to be a tobacco purist, I find that every now and then a flavored cigar is worth my time. This is one of those times. The aroma is delicious, the taste, while nothing compared to say, a padron(again, my favorite) is very sweet and extra mild. That is where the good points end. The construction is terrible, and the cigar falls apart three-quarters of the way through the smoke. It is handrolled, but not in the way you are thinking. Think hand rolled like a hand rolled cigarette. It looks a lot like I'm smoking a marijuana blunt. The draw suffers due to the construction and the finish has no hint of a buzz and leaves a sour aftertaste. Overall, not a cigar I'd recommend to those of you who stick to $5+ cigars.

I like 48 to 54 ring gauges and I perfer 6 3/4 to 7 1/4 in length. I can get a good hour and a half off this size.

Hey guys,
I need a little advice here. I gather from a lot of the posts here that you guys are into buying cigars over the internet. Would you say that its a good way to go for me? I know I've heard of some people getting stale cigars in the mail, and not being able to get a replacement box. If I'm going to be spending 50+ dollars for a small box of cigars, I'd like to know that they're going to be fresh and delicious. Any thoughts on that?

I don't know where they bought em from, but I've never had stale/dry cigars come from anywhere. But even if you did, any reputable cigar store will definitely replace your box (and sometimes will send more) if they are dry or moldy or worse (beetles ).

With Thompson Cigar each order is shipped with a return label. If for any reason you are unsatisfied you can return your order. They do charge $8 on the return but if it was a quality problem you can contact them and am sure it would be replaced at no charge. Zara....if santa brings me the humidor I asked for I will send you my current humidor, I will keep you posted.

All the cigar stores i posted on will replace the cigars for free if you are not satisfied. I ordered a box of cigars from JRcigars and they were not burning correctley and first thing they said was send them back and they would replace them.
