Tony, I couldn't agree more on everything you said.

Very mild, almost top mild, but still trying new smokes. I prefer maduros and some (heat) pepper. Won't be revisiting.

Smoked a few bundles of those several years ago in the corona size(6.5x44). Not bad for a cuban sandwich type. Don't know if the churchill would be as good or better.

I smoked my first Don Pepin Garcia blue toro yesterday. Not as good as I was expecting. I will be giving them another shot.

Man O'War Puro Authentico from a college homecoming cigar jamboree. They lost, but I won.

A maduro, which was a step up from the yard gars I've smoked recently, full bodied and spicy kick at first and it settled in for a good, not great smoke. The pigtail and wrapped foot was cool.

I like the pigtails too. A few of my PDR favorites have them.
Have you tried the Bahia Maduro yet? Fairly inexpensive and our own Sunday morning Vince likes them. Not one of my favorites, but I still have a few of them and would buy more if the price was right.

Hi guys, I've just started to smoke cigars last year.
I smoke occasionally, what would suggest me?
I look for some smooth flavors like vanilla, chocolate...

Marley, are you looking for flavored cigars or unflavored cigars with flavors ?

Smoked a Graycliff Platinum Series Presidente this afternoon. No flavor- not even a tobacco flavor. Worse than other Graycliffs I've smoked and I have yet to find a decent one.

Ok, sitting w two guys after hours drinking fine scotchs and good cigars at my BnM. My bd present a day late, but I've very drank some great scotchs and whiskeys-one guys a distributor for Glenlivet. I'm having a ball. Smoking new cigars Flor de Las Antillas, San LaTano Oval and Alec Bradley Post embargo. BOTL is a culture.

Padron makes a good cigar, but there are less expensive cigars that fit my wants better. Similarly the Oliva Serie O maduro is a nice smoke that may never have a steady place in the humidor for the same reasons.

I didn't smoke anything special on my recent birthday. A good smoke makes for a great occasion.

Groucho, I thought you were having a groundhog day experience until I noticed different Scotch and cigars. Glenfiddich was one of my favorites- now when I look at the price I get sticker shock.

Smoked a Lattutude Zero Tortas robusto yesterday. Bottom of the line cuban sandwich type cigar, a bit on the strong side and lacking in any flavor other than tobacco. First try and not long off the truck.
