I have a small problem, I have smokers block. I don't know what my next batch of cigars should be. So I would like some sugestions. What I'm looking for is a very full bodied cigar. I'm not going to list them all but I will list my top 5 not in any order

1)graycliff Espresso
2)Partagas Black
3) La Flor Dominicana DBL Ligero
4) Diploma
5) Xanadu

Thanks
John

I have only tried one of the cigars you have listed, that would be the Partagas Black.

Take what I say with a grain of salt( I've only been smoking cigars since 12/04)butI really enjoyed this one.

This cigar is on my list of must buys.

I highly recommend the Partagas Black. Also, I think the graycliff's are great, although rather pricey. It is a great smoke though.

OK, so I'm new...bear with me. Is Diploma a brand of cigar, a type of cigar from another brand, or what? All I know is it sounds really good because you guys talk about it a lot. What is it like?

That sounds like a great cigar...my humidor's already pretty full, but I think I can put in a couple of those. As for suggestions, I'm still pretty new at this, but I like the Punch Rare Corojos, CAO Extremes and Sancho Panza Extra Fuerte. They're pretty good full-bodied (to me) cigars.

If you like full bodied cigars, this is one of the best. In fact you may like them too much and become addicted for life!!!!

Also it's not a bad Idea to have some food in your belly before you smoke.... they are potent!!!.....but damn tasty!!!

Opus X and the Double Ligero are fairly potent.

I have a fairly unhealthy diploma addiction of my own going. You might want to try 5 vegas A. It is cheap and a great counterpart to what you usually smoke. I highly recommend for anyone that likes the Partagas Black.

These guys will tell you that I dont often speak so highly about cigars. But I REALLY REALLY REALLY liked this one.

I suggest the Camacho Diploma and the LFD Double Ligero. They are both great cigars.

Both full strength, yet completely different smokes.

I would go with...diploma...but it's a smack you in the face stick, from foot to nub, the whole way through the flavor and body spin eachother around and take over...it's definatley a full experience...

I have a box or two, and the LFD double Ligeros, Bulz said it!!! Very similar, but very different! Both great smokes...
