    Anyone here enjoy the 601 Blue Label box-pressed Maduros?

    I'm thinking about grabbing a bundle of 10 while they're on sale.

    Saw that sale but they are not a want to buy cigar for me. The green I enjoy but that is about it. So many other cigars at the pricepoint that I enjoy more.

    Do tell. What's a good, spicy, med-full cigar at that price point?

    My top three these days are Tatuaje 7th Reservas, My Father '22 Petits and Undercrown Corona Vivas.

    I am not up for spicy, but med full I can do at that price point easy.

    Diesel d.x $3.50 ea
    CAO Cameroon L'Anny $4 ea
    CAO maduro L'Anny $3 ea
    CAO America Potomac $3.50 ea
    CAO La Triv (if you want a little spicy) $4 ea
    Cain $4 ea
    Oliva V $4.50 ea (depending on vitola)
    Est 1844 $2.50 ea

    The $3-$5 pricepoint is crowded with awesome cigars.

    Thanks a lot for the list Marker. I've been curious about the Diesel and Cain line of cigars for a while now. I'm off to do some reading.

    Where are they on sale? I have a fiver of them in the humi, but I haven't gotten around to them yet.

    Having another Tempus Maduro, since that other one was so great. This one is great as well. These things sure can hold onto an ash, too! Smoked literally half the cigar before I ashed it. Alec Bradley has a hit-or-miss thing going on for me, but the Tempus (both Criollo and Maduro) and the Prensado are fantastic cigars. Really fantastic. Which reminds me, I need to get more Prensado's ASAP.

    Had surgery to put a bone graft in my wrist. Look up Kienbock's Disease; I have it. They also had to shorten my radius bone in that arm, I guess that's where they got the bone for the bone graft. Also had carpal tunnel release surgery on the left wrist at the same time! All this from playing mandolin and bass, and all I wanna do is play again. Haven't played in weeks and it's driving me nuts.

    cigarsprintsale :punk:

    Those '22 Le Bijous are elusive little turds but I did manage to get a heck of a bargain on some La Riquezas 4's and Man O' War Puro Authenticos.

    Hmmmm,,, this slope feels a little slippery...:confused:

    GlassSculptor. If you have the patience that site has some of the best deals. There is a wide variety they normally cycle as well.

    I hear that!!.. I was on it earlier today watching for the Le Bijous and didn't see them. I turned my attention to something else for a few minutes and missed them again......Doh!....Sooner or later I'll score of box of them.

    I did grab a ten pack of the La Riquezas for a little over $3 a piece though. That's a heck of a deal.:hbang:

    The Partagas Spanish Rosado is off the hook! IMO of course.

    Hadn't had a stogie in quite some time. I really like Parodi and De Nobili, and I really love the Avanti cigars which are exactly the same smoke but with a very strong anisette flavor to them. So since I like the anisette ones so much, I figured I'd give the cherry vanilla a shot. It doesn't sound so good, but neither does an aniseed cigar, and those are freaking awesome.

    So I'm having my first Cherry Vanilla Parodi. Not very good, but smokeable. I probably wont get these again.

    I wish it could last forever. This one is from 2010, and it makes me one happy smoker. Just phenomenal. Whenever I get around to buying a high dollar box of cigars, there's no question it will be AƱejos. Probably even over Padron '26's. Definitely a personal top five for me.
