"My top 5 cigars from 2009:
1. Padron 45th Maduro-hands down one the best cigars I have ever smoked. So much flavor and body from the 10yr aged wrapper. The burn and draw was exceptional with this cigar. Strong but refined, a must for any…"
"I agree with Brandon's number 1 and number two pick because I too have smoked both of these and they are fantastic cigars. I disagree with his number three pick and would put anyone of the Nestor Miranda smokes at number three especially the…"
1. Padron 45th - This stays at number one for me, I have only smoked one, but it was an amazing smoke and deserves this year's Cigar of the Year.
2. Cohiba Siglo Tubo (Cuban) - I have also smoked one of these, and I agree with Chris,…"

Additionally, for those of you that tried the Winter Blend of 2008 and loved it (most did), and for those of you that never got to try it, the new Patel Brothers Cigar is a very similar blend and those attending will be among the first to sample it. Also being tasted is our very own 1939 Reserve, a kind of cross between a 1992 Vintage and an…See More
"I tried this cigar earlier today. This is the first Nub I have tried and I was actually reasonably impressed.
The cigar is a little bit spicy and has a somewhat sweet and cedary draw that does in fact turn into a sort of cocoa flavor on the…"
"We just got in the El Baton cigar from the JC Newman/Fuente group.
We sampled this one a few months ago and looks like the decision was made to bring it in. Its a good addition to the heavy medium to full bodied cigars we already carry. Its been a…"

Nice To see you like guns , I'm too old to play with guns , just cigars
I like medium to strong with a glass of wine. However I fall back on

Llaneza 1961 I bought at The Cigar Dave Event is great also.
