I am a cigar novice. Only have one favorite cigar, the one I most enjoyed from that $9.95 sampler AK told us about some time back. Oliva Master Blends 3.

Like Goose, I'm a cigar novice as well, but out of the 6-8 different cigars I've smoked there have been two that I've really enjoyed far beyond the others:

1. My Father Flor de las Antillas
2. Padron 3000 maduro
I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books.... I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a rough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.

Where do you find these? A quick perusal of a couple online retailers, plus a Google search and a Bing search, and I can't locate this stick.

Best cigar I've ever had was a 2001 H Upmann Churchill from Cuba. Everything since then has paled to that.

I can only imagine cheap cigars are custom rolled by a man who has his own desk and wears a tie to work.

Macanudo Prince Philip Cafe, is my number one cigar for the past 25-or-so years. When I first bought one it cost ~$2.
All others vary. I like the por Laranaga, Romeo y Juliet, Upman, and Partagas cigars. They're my go-to whenever I smoke a cigar these days.
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)

Is that the panatela? Fantastic smoke. I like Upmann Vintage Cameroon and the RyJ’s, as well as Hoyo Excaliburs. I’ll try the laranagas and the Partagas. We are showing our ages, I’m afraid.

I used to enjoy Hoyo Excalibers back in the day. Fuente Short Stories are fun.

Sure are. I think my comfort zone crystallized about 15 years ago and my pants started their upward climb about the same time. Only really new cigars I’ve had I’ve liked, though. Mi querrida (fuggin dumm name) and the Monte Cristo White and the L’Aranja.

Yes, I've had some very good Monte Cristos. And I forgot about the A. Fuentes. All very good cigars.

Never liked them, sir, and not because of the name. Good point, though—I retract my I’ll-spirited attack on the mi querridos. :D The Te Amos were immensely popular, but didn’t agree with me. I only tried a couple and could never finish one. People seemed to love them or loathe them.

I’m no cigar expert. I admit to having a couple of faves but not knowing jack about the industry or brands. This has been a thread I’ve watched with curiosity.
