Re: Another boom?

Fuente has always used deliberate scarcity as a marketing tactic. I wouldn’t try to draw any general conclusions.

I remember going to a B&M and being told I had to buy 2 other cigars for the...

Re: Southern Draw Rose of Sharon - Robusto 5.5x54

Southern Draw has their cigars rolled by AJ Fernandez in Nicaragua, tho this one does have some Dominican leaf in it. Try their Kudzu, which is much stronger.

Re: Aganorsa JRF Maduro Super Toro

Thanks for the review!

Try some of the Aganorsa Miamis with the corojo wrapper. You’ll be happy.

Re: Drone Anyone?

For a CA inmate, wouldn’t the natural thing be to use the drone to bomb members with cigars?

Have fun!

Re: Am I weird?

CI sells 2 different AJ Fernandez perfecto samplers. Probably cheaper on Cbid.

Re: Quoram Shade - Robusto

Many years ago, JR cigars started a new cigar magazine. They asked for volunteers to do taste tests of a large group of different short filler bundle cigars. We had to smoke 3 of each cigar and file...

Re: Good bundle cigar

Since we’re dredging up all the usual suspects, the Old Fashioned cigars sold by Mikes are acknowledged to be seconds of Macanudo and Partagas. He’s also got Honduran Old Fashions now, which I don’t...

Re: AJ Fernandez Bellas Artes - short Churchhill

Are you asking me? I prefer the habana Enclave. Iíve only had the Upmann torpedo and it makes me happy.

Re: AJ Fernandez Bellas Artes - short Churchhill

He makes a lot of catalog cigars and maybe a few of those are stumbles. That said, the Man O War, sold by the Cigars Intl / Cbid is a solid and inexpensive choice.

Re: Padron 1964 - Principe Maduro

Thanks for the review! I like reading Heisenberg’s blog, but I’m often stymied by the lingo. Maybe you need to smoke a cigar while you read it? ��

Re: Oliva Series G

Oliva is hard to beat for quality / price. My personal favorites are the O and V Melanio. I prefer Olivia’s natural wrappers to their maduros, but to each their own.

Cbid sometimes sells their...

Re: AJ Fernandez Bellas Artes - short Churchhill

Since you’re in AJ mode, I’d recommend the Enclave, which is a classic in-your-face AJ cigar and the H Upmann that he blended (more refined).

Thanks for the reviews!

Re: Need an alternative....Habana Leon

When I see corojo wrapper and Nicaraguan filler, I think of Aganorsa Leaf, which used to be called Casa Fernandez. They make some cigars in Miami still, like Miami Reserva.

Re: Xikar lighters

Basically, the more you spend on a lighter, the more disappointed you will end up. I'd buy a nice punch and stick with cheap lighters that you understand won't last long.

Re: Jfr lunatic loco el Gran loco

I'm a big fan of the Aganorsa Leaf cigars but never got much from their JFR line. Try the Miami Reserva. Or, on the Cbid cheap side, try the Nica Libre by Aganorsa.
