Worst: Thompsons Phoenix. :bigpuke:
Pre-lit aroma: smells like poop
Decided to light it up anyway and give it a try.
Big mistake of my life! :bigpuke:

Next on my worst list is the Baccarrat. yuck.

Can't remember any more this early in the morning.

These are just my opinions.

My worse is the Arturo Fuente Hemmingway. It tasted like metal. I had two, they both tasted the same. Bought a third from another store, same metalic taste. I also got a couple La Finca in a sampler pack from JR's that sucked too. The NASTA churchill sampler from JR's really sucks. It was my first sample pack and I really didn't know any better.

So the :
A Fuente hemmingway sucks 1
La Finca sucks 2
NATSA Sampler sucks 3

The only Hemmingway I've had was a Short Story. And I loved it.

You folks gotta remember, everyone has a different palate. Remember Opus X? Some folks love it while others don't.

Duke, if you don't want the Short story, send it my way. :D

That is an interesting reaction Jesse, I don't think I have ever heard anyone describing a cigar as tasting like metal.

As for the NATSA samplers, I have heard that before about them, but I would still like to try their corona if I could. I mean you cant judge untill you'v tried it right?

i think i might keep it...its on order form c.com but where i got sells them individually for like 8.75 i think something like that im dying to try it but i cant see spending more money on a stick when i have one coming in. i think my worst sticks were Thompson's, And i had a fonseca from a sampler wow was that thing terrible i smoke it for a min then threw it out and went to a TTT.

Bikeman, thats the only wording I can use to describe the taste. I grew up in a family of plumbers. over the years I've cut, threaded and soldered all sorts of pipe. You know how you can "taste" the leather in a leather shop? And thats one of the tastes a cigar gives off. I can detect a metal taste with some cigars. The Hemmingway is one of those cigars, I had a A. Fuente maduro cigar. It was 46x 61/2. That cigar had the same metalic taste to it. I've only been smokig cigars for 6 months, so I'm still learning tastes. As far as the NATSA samplers. I didn't care for them , but a friend of mine loved them. So I gave them to him. You should try them. I'm going to keep smoking for a while then I may re-try some of the cigars I put in the "sucks" file. Purhaps, after developing my pallet abit, those cigars may taste different to me. :D

I think you are just full of heavy metals Jesse, and the cigar is triggering that. LOL, LOL, LOL.

But seriosly, that is a very strange reaction to a cigar for sure. But I am in agreement with the Fonseca comment. I got one in a sample, and it was not very good at all. People rave about them, so I might try one again, but there are sooo many others out there, you should never have to revisit a bad cigar untill you run out of good ones thats for sure.

Keep it coming boys, this is a good one!

Smoked a La Fontana Vintage today. Now I have not been smoking cigars for very long, but this was just a pathetic stick IMO. The "sweet gum" tip was novel for the first two or three puffs, but any flavor ended with that. The rest of this cigar was what I imagine a stick of balsa wood would taste like if you tried to smoke it.

I bought a few Fonseca's when I was In canada. They were 44x5" cedar wrapped. I thought they were great. Then I bought a few here in the states (Dominican) and those were....not as good.
