    big fan of cao,macanudo,partegas,and punch..gurkha makes a great smoke. i have about 1000 in my humidor of many different brands,a lot of the "every day smokes".the ones that are around a buck or so a stick are some of my favs,i.e"villar''villar,ciglo..opusX is a great cigar,but a little over rated.I have a friend that hooks me up with cubans,and there good and everything but theres too many dominican's that are just as good if not better,and of course easier to get.

    Henry Clay PGM of Kentucky was among the few politicians that did not renounce his membership during the anti-masonic movement of the 1800s.

    Rocky Patel is winning me over. I tried 'The Edge' once & soon after bought more to age in my humidor. I would suggest Rocky Patel's "The Decade". Very nice.
    Padrón 1926 & 1964 Series are great.

    Another good smoke is Kinky Friedman's cigar line. I began with 'Willie' & 'Kinkycristo'. There are always a few of these in the humidor.

    I like everything I have smoked from Carlos Torano. I haven't smoked a lot of the more expensive cigars but this is a medium priced cigar that tastes good. I get the different varieties from 4-10 dollars a stick. I smoked a couple of Virtuoso's over the weekend and it was a very smooth smoke for a full bodied cigar. Like most other good cigars it's cuban seed and cuban rollers who no longer live in cuba.

    Had a Padron 2000 Maduro yesterday. Not bad. A little rough to start but smooths out for the second and last third. Also smoked a Romeo Y Julieta Habana Reserve this weekend. That one was a very nice smoke. These are cheaper sticks 2-3 bucks. Trying to find a good inexpensive cigar I will like smoking to stock my humi with.

    VILLAR Y VILLAR CIGARS
    Handmade NIC
    Wrapper: ECSU Binder: HON Filler: NIC/HON/DR
    Medium Bodied

    Handcrafted in Esteli, Nicaragua, the Villar y Villar is a classic medium-bodied blend comprised of tobaccos from three nations and wrapped in a Colorado Ecuadorian Sumatran wrapper. It is a solid, no-nonsense cigar, packed with flavor and very fairly priced.

    these are very good smokes for the money,and might be what you are looking for......

    Rocky Patel consistently has excellent cigars. I think Montecristos are the Cadillac cigar, though.

    I also enjoy pretty much any of the AVO brand, and the La Gloria Cubana Serie R.

    My preferred beverage to go with a stogie is Elijah Craig bourbon or George Dickel whisky on the rocks.

    Macanudo Robust is my consistent favourite.
    I have to agree that Cuban cigars are vastly over rated because they are “the forbidden fruit”.
    Most individuals I have run into that “thought” they had purchased real Cuban cigars were duped. I didn’t spoil their dreams. (I’m not a total buzz kill).

    my bro in law got me hooked on a great cigar called Camacho, they kicked my butt the first time I tried them and I am not a novice cigar smoker by any means.

    great buzz and excellent with crown and coke
