dream cigar

if money was no object and u could have any cigar you wanted what would it be?

for me it would be a padron 1926 anniversary in the 40th anniversary size. i had a no.2 once and it was great.

I haven't had the opportunity to try many sticks from "that" island, that being said, my very favorite cigar is the Opus X and thankfully they are not out of reach, price wise.

I have not had any Cubans that I know of, but I have tried the Opux X, Padron 1926, and the 5 Vegas that I am presently enjoying if just fine. Maybe I'm a looser, but I can't say the the "expensive" ones are that much better than this 5 Vegas A Churchill.

You're right, the 5 Vegas A is a kick-ass smoke.

But I would love to try a Monte #2 with a significant amount of age on it.

Well many people feel the 20 year old DP are stating to go past their
prime and should be smoked now.
Often I think storage comes into play, but at 40 years old -
I'd look for 20 years and expect a btter cigar.
I'd say $300 a stick is closer to the price - about 7K a box,
if you can find one.

Best cigar I smoked this year was a Hoyo 109
they came in these fancy boxes that look like books.
I think $1500 a box or something.
I'd love a box!

Since the oldest #2 I've had thus far was 5 years old, I would say anything older than that would be nice.

I think I would have to try one of the God of Fire cigars.

One shop had some singles they were selling for $100. Just too high for me to justify for one cigar.
