After dinner (5 oz. USDA prime cut steak) last night with my girlfriend, we went outside so I could have a smoke. I had gotten a "Lino Mouton Cadet No. 1" from the cigar shop in town.

Lino's are made in Honduras.

Cost me 7.42. Not too impressive.

The taste was a little harsh for me.
Any one else have any expierience with Lino?

Want to recomend me something better - non-cuban cigars.

Don't you just love it when someone gives a cigar a pouffy name that matches that of a top shelf wine and the cigar does nothing but disappoint?

I placed the yearstamp on the two LVH's as they are slightly different blends each year of production

If you like the zino, go for the AVO classic. Nice medium body and great aroma. Although, there still is nothing quite like a good ashton

I heard that a soldier from Fort Drum, New York has a small company called Distorted Services. He gives pretty good deals on Great Cigars. Ask Switchblade, he knows him really well. Rumor is that with every purchase, you get free stuff. I think you can contact him via e-mail from his profile.
