Curious what box code they smoked for #5. I've had recent Sir Winnies from 8lug Mark and 4Wheel Ray and they were pretty stellar.

Oooh I just stocked a 5er of the JFR Lunatic Habano in the humi...it’s the chiquito though I believe, not sure if that’s the same thing...all these brand specific vitola names make my head spin sometimes...
Good for Aganorsa though!

So far I've had three of the top 9, though only 2 of them this year.

Please don't let #1 be a Rocky or a Ghurka.

Probably not, but who knows. Rocky does spend a lot of ad money with CA.

I am pretty sure it won't be Fuente, My Father, or Padron; they've all made an appearance on the Top 10 list so far. Tat maybe, if they stay with the NC theme. If Cuban, I wonder if they would go for the Cohiba Talisman?

I’m not fishing Mark I’m not that kind of guy. I buy my own sticks just because someone makes a comment like that doesn’t always mean there fishing.

Well, Mark might be pointing out how it looks to others who don't know you, Chayse.

Yeah, I can see how that could be misinterpreted, haha...
One newbie trying to help another, I happen to know that there is an online retailer that offers more than a couple of the cigars on that list in a 5 pack deal (buy more save more thing)
To the older members, is it okay to mention that company in this thread to recommend to Chayse? I can’t remember if we are specially not supposed to do that...

It is fine to talk about specific vendors of non-Cuban cigars

Oh excellent, thank you for that Mark!
Okay yeah, I was referring to Thompson Cigar, I’ll paste the link at the bottom of this post. Now, I can’t gaurantee that all the the exact specific vitolas match up Chayse, but they definitely have some of the same blends! Definitely a good place to start if you want to be able to choose a nice variety.
