    Excellent. One comment. The Onyx mini you refer to is, I think, the Mini Belicoso? This used to be my cigar of choice, but with the 40% "fee" they got too pricy. I still cop a feel now and then, I confess. Strangely, the other Onyx sizes weren't as good I didn't think. Not even close, actually. What's the story on that? Anyone know? My imagination?

    I'm not too sure about this as I have not hit very many of the OR. I've had a couple i think but they were not the mini, more robusto sized if i remember correctly. Quite possibly, it may be the wapper to filler/binder ratio. If it is a smaller ring gauge, there would be more wrapper in the ratio, which is supposed to give the cigar the most flavour and really plays a role in strength. And by the way, good use of words here, "I still cop a feel now and then, I confess." Made me laugh a little. Hopefully some more informed BOTLs here will be able to answer your question better.

    Thanks for the list Adamh_25!

    I have saved and printed the list.

    As a newbie, I have smoked a few cigars in the past 2 weeks and have written some notes on them. Mostly negative

    Two days ago (before seeing your list) I smoked my first Carlos Torano Exodus 1959 and really enjoyed it.

    After looking through your long list of recommendations and comparing it to my short list of what I have already smoked... the Exodus 1959 is the only thing on my list that matches

    I'll be going through your list and picking up a few here and there in the next couple of weeks! I'll post again as soon as I've sampled more from your list.

    Awesome, I'm glad you are liking it. I hope it can give you a whole bunch of favourites.

    As for the mild add on to the list, I'm still working on that, but hopefully I'll be able to get it up soon.

    well, I'm a hell of a newbie, but I recommend Sherpas for the list. They are cheap from CI and a great value in my chimpy opinion. I like the robusto size, and won't let my humidor go without these. I have gifted probably 40 or 50 of these to anyone from a "cigar snob" to guys that just want a gar for hanging around on my deck. Even the seasoned gorillas like them, and the newbies experience what a nice creamy smoke can be. The wrappers are a bit fragile, but that is my only complaint. They are a small enough vitola so you can chuck it if you tend to get "busy" without warning, but have enough flavor where you can drag about an hour out of the robusto, a nice burn time. Did I mention they are cheap?


    Now don't bid against me on the devil site when I restock as payment for the recommendation.

    Will this smoke be from a cigar or your ass burning? .

    Always good to see another Tarheel in the forum! I'm out of the Fayetteville-area.

    Not sure if you're aware, but VOLFAN is putting together a mini-HERF in Raleigh next Thursday evening, 26 Oct, at the Fox and Hound. Hope you're planning on being there. Right now it looks like I should be able to attend. Hope you'll be around as well. Always good to put faces with names.

    This will be my first formal herf. Although, over the years I've gotten with buddies to drink beer, smoke gars, check out the eye candy and scenery...but, we didn't know we were "herfing". Back then we called it "trolling" !

    Thank you for compiling these lists for everyone. I was directed here based off my intro thread, and this is exactly what I was looking for in terms of a listing with many different types to select from.

    I've read about a few of the ones on the list and many I can find at work for an affordable price.

    Thank you,
    Dave.
