Premium Cigars

Hi all,
I am going to the local cigar shop today and wanted some sugestions on out of the ordanary ultra premium cigars to look for. I have several padron both 1926 and 1964, and several of the Opus X. Any sugestions, looking to spend no more than say $30 per stick, only going to buy 2.

Thanks for your sugestions,
Craig

No need to spend that kind of money to get a super premium. If you like the Opus, I highly recommend the Matasa 30th Anniversary. I will also second the motion for the La Aurora 100 Anos.

Thanks, They both sound great. Will go to the local shop in a couple of hours. Need to pick up a golf cart cigar holder at the same time.

the best cigar clips for golf cars are the ones cigar.com sells. They also clip on to your golf bag, which I like because if I put them on the cart I forget to take it off.

One of my favorite super-premiums is the Perdomo Edicion de Silvio, particularly the maduro.

look for the J.F.R. ( just for retailers) by Tabacaleria Tropical, , under 10 bucks a stick , unfinished foot & no band, GREAT SMOKE , they come in a Box of 50 , & it is the "closest thing "to a cigar from the "forbiden" Island .
