    OTOH, I've tried the Graycliff G2 and Turbo & found them both to be excellent.

    Thank you Bruce and Patrick for your input - I will give those Graycliffs a try. Honestly, I can't remember which one it was that I smoked, maybe the G2 but definitely not the Turbo or 1666.

    Lord help me for buying a box right off the bat believing the marketing BS description about overuns. First one was rott then a week and then I cracked the cello off a quad and at three weeks the same but way more pungent like the burning swamp. The rest are awaiting target practice with my twelver. No doubt it is from some kind of bad storage like maybe the sanitary facility?

    I've never personally bought overruns but I'm always wary of bargains that sound too god to be true...

    I would have to say Quorum. Can't believe so many people didn't enjoy the Brickhouse. I found it to be pretty good.

    Yeah I find Brickhouse cigars to be hit-or-miss though

    I like to drink miller lite, others like bud light. Some prefer a craft beer and will not touch either one. Some don't like beer at all and only drink rum... Some hate rum and only drink whiskey... Some love it all, and others don't drink at all...
    This is a good way to put it.
    Excluding swisher sweets,
    mine was a cao Brazilia. Maybe I'm not accustomed to what it was going for, but the first word that came to mind was sour. I felt nauseated half way through it, and threw it out. To me it was like taking a gulp of what you think is Bud, but ends up being Miller instead but worse, it just didn't get better after the realization. Gross!

    I've had a couple, and I'm pretty sure they were over humidified. Tight draw and bitter nasty flavours. I'd recommend keeping your smokes in a comfortable smoking humidity, user error is a terrible reason to ruin a smoke.

    I dunno about the worst (spent high-school years smoking Swishers, Phillies, etc) but I had a pretty awful experience last night while mowing. Grabbed a stick from my tupperdor. Can't really remember what it was, Don Gasser Del Polecat or some such from the first online sampler I ever bought. Toro, not bad looking, a little reddish hue to the wrapper. Head felt kind of squeezy like a dry kitchen sponge, not a great portent. First inch wasn't so bad, bland with a little pepper. Then it got worse - sourness creeping in as the flavor crept out. The burn got terrible (not an RH problem, others in the tupper were fine) and the wrapper started de-laminating from the binder - weird.

    When there was about 2/3 of the cigar and half the yard left I though "well, I paid for it so let's try something else." I don't mind a good chaw so I cut off the foot and figured I'd gnaw on it a while - if it worked for Curtis LeMay, it's good enough for Alan C from Hilliard, OH. After about 20 seconds my mouth tasted like a full ashtray that'd been rained on - not working.

    So I gave up & pitched the slobbered-up leavin's into the garden, only I missed. On the way back I got it with the mower, which (incredibly) spit it back out almost unharmed - even my Craftsman HCV160 didn't want it!

    That's pretty funny - so bad the lawn mower wouldn't even take it!

    I just tossed the 2nd half of a "double happiness" 2 headed monster into my cigar graveyard (English Ivy - it eats everything). I came across it while doing a little cigar inventory this morning and asked myself:
    1) will I ever smoke this piece of shite?
    2) would I give to someone else, even someone I didn't like?
    3) am I planning any science experiments that require a sample of really crappy tobacco?
    A yes to any of these would have saved it.

    Sounds a lot like every backwoods "cigar" I've had...

    a beetle experiment. i had a shitey barberpole corona that i put in a tupperware with a wet papertowl and in the sun of my porch for over two months. it being hawaii outside temps get higher than 80. after two months no beetles. just a little discoloration. i gave up on it. maybe beetles didn't like it either.
