Magna Carta by Oliva for Thompson. One of the worst cigars I have EVER had. I thought maybe the first one was just bad, but the next two (with about a week of rest between each) were just as bad. Hard to believe that Oliva made it, as I am a HUGE Oliva fan in general. I still have some, going to give them at LEAST a year rest and see if they become smokeable. Stay away.
All of mine are "double hapiness" versions: Ghurka, Padilla, and the worst the namesake Double Hapiness. They all tasted the same...like ass. At the time, they were the only cigars I owned. It's a wonder I stuck to this hobby after that experience. Yuck.

A Don Lugo that was several years in my humi. Kind of tasted like dried grass clippings with a hint of cardboard that roaches had hidden in until they died. The cello, not yello but a shade of brown. When found, I was expecting a treat. Just proved to me, an aged dog rocket is still a turd.
Did someone go to every cigar forum and post this question? Going through this list I can honestly say you got what you deserved if you're smoking some of the schlock mentioned. I'll never understand why people pay $2 for a cigar and expect it to smoke like a Padron. A $2 cigar will always be a $2 cigar. Yes, it might be enjoyable, BUT IT'S A $2 CIGAR!! Someone wasn't sitting at the bench with $25 leaf thinking "I have all this extra $25 leaf....that's it, I'll make a $2 cigar with it."
I research everything before I smoke it, but every once in awhile one sneaks through that I don't like. There are alot of cigars I'll never smoke again, mostly because they just don't suit my taste.
