Re: Cigars!

hmmmm......anniversary


I buy from multiple sources local as well as internet. its always great having good relationships with local vendors when they get the select few in and they hold it for you.

If you ever get to the feunte shop in vegas, would highly reccomend the casa fuente's and the mojito along with the atmosphere of a beauty slushing the ming bent over in front of you as she makes it.

A great plan if you buy two cigars a year. We go through 2 boxes a month.

To the OP, we use JR as you do and also: http://www.bestcigarprices.com/

With that kind of volume, I see your point.

I pay an annual membership at my local lounge which gets me 10% off cigars and 15% of boxes. They have tons of events with killer deals, good owners, and good customers. And, my wife sends me up there when she's tired of my shenanigans!

Going to Vegas in March. Tell me of this shop you speak of! Me needs to see a hottie bent over whilst enjoying a cigar and imbibing.

Re: Cigars!

When I was in Afghanistan cigars international shipped a $200 order and it didn't show up. I sent them an email and about 10 minutes later I had another shipping confirmation notice. They shipped a replacement order the same day. The following day, my original order showed up so I emailed them again and asked that they cancel the replacement order. They told me that it already shipped, share them with your buddies and thanks for your service. Customer for life now. It's the little things like that.

Re: Cigars!

You can all have all the Romeo Julieta;s you like. I'll keep what I like, really like, a secret so's none of you go buying them and get the prices all jacked up. Shoot when I went and opened my mouth about the Camacho Triple Maduro, that sucker jumped to over $10 a stick in less than two months. One of my current favorites is sky high, but the standard list is still fair enough(yeah, list of about ten, nothing else really matters, and yes Padron 40th Anni '26 is on the list too)

I heard stories like yours from other guys Casey and that's why I went with them. Not a single problem.

Wow that's an impressive list.

My favorite overseas was the Cohibo Siglo Series but here stateside I like:

Montecristo white, unfortunately these have gotten expensive
For cheaper good smokes check out specials on CAO black, and the cigars international brand (5 vegas gold) is usually constructed pretty well with a good draw which is a must for me. 5 Vegas gold you can get deals on for about 2.50 a stick.

Now that shooting is more expensive I keep to cigars that are 3.50 or less for the most part. You can still get good smokes for that and paired with some Eagle Rare 10yr old can have a nice relaxing afternoon that won't break the bank.

    Wow, nice taste in cigars. You don't see many folks with Cohiba Behikes in their humidors. That's a nearly unobtainable stick unless you travel internationally.

    Kudos on the feral flying pigs. Those are some of my faves but so hard to find.

    We are lucky here, we have a few nice shops that are better priced than most of the mail order shops around. I get nice Padron Churchill Maduros about $5 each. Buy em by the box and they give good discounts. But like I say we are lucky. ITs fun to see all the cool doodads. At one shop local here, they have $3000 lighters and stuff, high end, fun to look at lol..

    I'm interested in your Cuban Diplimaticos, Davidoffs and Montecristos you have in your singles section. How many? How much and what ring gage are they?

    Monte Cristo's, Arturo Fuente and a great collection of cuban's from my european friends keep me smokin'. Now trading a stick for a tobacco stick (s), I love cigars-but not that much!!! Good Luck though.

    Not enough to trade my GAP/AI, but I would trade my Remington PSS/McM A5 with USO 15MOA Base in .308, for the lot to include the shipping to me.
    I say this in all honesty and am using the correct value to assess all of it based on experience. I do not see that collection being worth more than about what my aforementioned rifle is worth or about $1800 or so, or < $2000. I also refuse to value any cigar beyond it's wholesale cost, because in the end it is worth no more than that regardless of what the shop selling price was.

    I read this thread yesterday whilst sipping a glass of Jamesons. I haven't smoked anything since 1980, but the thought occurred to me that it might be nice to try a good cigar with that Jamesons.
    I am not poverty stricken, but still, on my retirement I barely have enough money to buy all the guns I want. So,I think that at the rate I would smoke, I could maybe go as high as $10.00 for a good cigar.
    What would you experienced gentlemen suggest?

    San Lotano is NOT a great smoke. It is at best mediocre and not much more than training wheels for the young.

    For your ten, you could find a few really great cigars, and many really good cigars for even less

    Medium body: Gurkha Shaggy Maduro is good, Xicar's is good, La Flor Dominicana Especial line is good
    Full body: 601's, Padron, LFD Double Ligero line, just to name a few

    You want a really good cigar for your ten buck's? Look for a Camacho Triple Maduro. For $10 that is about the best it gets



    You want to sell single boxes or five cigars at a time, use the cigar bid website. You can potentially make more than MSRP, or break above WS

    To me San latano is great for price. Really enjoy and being that it received a 96 others may agree.
