Stick to sticks in the mid range of pricing until you figure out what your preferences are. I like Alec Bradley, Perdomo, Oliva, and Drew Estates Undercrown for nice cigars that won't cost you a ton.

Cigar smoker here.  I smoke 1-2 times a week.  My favorite cigar is the Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 Fina Maduro.  Great $5 cigar.  Tasty, medium body, smooth draw, not too overpowering. Another go to inthe under $10 range is a Rocky Patel Decade which is a few bucks more at $7.

As Vincent mentioned, the Liga Privada (Drew Estates) are damn good cigars.  My favorite from that line is the No. 9.  I usually keep 2 in my humidor at all times for the occasional good cigar night.  Those we sell for $13.

I work in a humidor part time so I have access to a lot of great cigars for really cheap.  I just got my first ever Cubans from a customer who came in on Saturday.  I will fire one up for my birthday in November.  Here are a few pics of my 25 count humidor which contains a little of everything.

Just smoked a Flor De Las Antallis tonight. Amazing Cigar. Best deals are usually from Cigar International (CI) or Cigar Bid. My suggestion is to get a sampler and try different brand names, blends etc and go from there.
If you dont like the cigar put that shit out and try another one. Phone Post 3.0

Big EP, is that a Alec Bradley "Fine & Rare" in the middle of your picture? If so, I had two of those and enjoyed them immensely. You'll enjoy that.

Romeo y Julieta, Camacho, Rocky Patel are my go-to brands.


Acid.... I've never smoked an Acid cigar that didn't make me want to scour my tongue with steel wool. Yuck. Phone Post 3.0

I'm not a big fan of Acid but I do like Drew Estates Undercrown, Liga Privada and occasionally I'll burn a Cold Fusion Tea.

I wish.  It's a Gurkha Cellar Reserve.

Great smoke as well.  We don't carry the Rare & Fine by AB; we do however carry the Prensado line.

Just tried one of these over the weekend in Austin.  Not a bad smoke, and I like the belicoso size.

Those that said Liga just clipped, lit and smoked for 2 hours the correct. Great cigars. Padrones are great for the price. Maduros pref. Prensados are great. And just about anything by My Father C I  has a special on their sampler......10 cigars for $34 when in stock.

The Le Bijou, La Duena and Flor de las Antillas are all fantastic! The have a similar 1 for 39 for 8 that is in stock right now. Def keep an eye out for this sampler, tho.

Hell yeah buddy! I'll be keeping my eye out for more of those.
Ordered a bunch of the Ave Maria Immaculata's a few months back. Tasted different, kinda creamy if i remember correctly. Those would pair nicely with a coffee for a morning smoke. Phone Post 3.0
