Default Your BEST Maduro / Oscuro

Ok...we've had the top 10 favorites, but let's think this one out hard. Offer up your absolute, número uno, can't live without, willing to trade your kids/ grandkids for, favorite stick. To make this something that most of us can have a chance at getting our mitts on some of these, try to keep a ceiling of $15 greenbacks on it. If it's that special, go ahead and let the sky be the limit.

If I have any of the sticks you want, I would take 1 kid, or 2 grandkids, for a 5'er.

One? If I have to nail down ONLY ONE...let's think which maduro has it all, makes me cocoa for Cocoa Puffs...

Don Pepin Garcia JJ Series Maduro Belicoso

It has everything I love in a stick, full bodied, spice, a touch of sweetness, and plenty of cocoa.

Mac and I are brothers separated at birth. This is also numero uno for me. Doesn't get any better.

Call me crazy, but a Cubao Maduro. I don't even think they still make 'em, but they're not too hard to find. They're just smooth and spicy and chocolatey all at the same time, and they never fail me. Best part is I recently scored a bunch more at Famous' Cigar Monster for $33.00 per 10 pack.

I'm actually shocked it wasn't the 601 Blues. You've got cabinets dedicated to those bad boys.

For me, either HdM Epi2s(CC) or Tat Black Culebras(NC). Either I could smoke all day, every day for the rest of my life. I'm actually surprised with where I went with this when I thought about it. Normally my habits would err on the stronger side and I'm surprised I didn't go Padron either.

Aaaaaand, I apparently suffer from severly short term memory loss.

Since this was supposed to be a Maddie/Oscuro, I'd say LP No. 9 Belis.

Excellent stick Tim. Made by the folks that make my beloved 601 Blue...go figure.

Almost Bear...but the DPG gets the nod. The original release 601 Blues are an extremely close second.

Any Padron maduro but I particularly enjoy the 1964 Monarca, Principe and Exclusivo.

Well aged Padron 2000 maduros are divine. Smoked an entire 2008 box in less than two months...

I hear that Robert! Once you tear into a well aged box of those, it's impossible to pace yourself.

That's for sure...I miss those suckers real badly. ROTT ones are good, but the age makes them even better and amazingly smooth without losing the flavor.
