None!  If only I could find some non-Cuban panetelas but they seem to be as hard to find as a box of 2010/11

Behikes 52's.

To all the guys who picked Padron, I have to ask - do you find them to have a heavy dose of Our Lady of N?  I love the taste, but my last few Padron 64s have almost left me crying in the fetal position, lol.  No other cigar impacts me that way.

In order of my most frequent: LFD, My Fathers then DE. Padron is good but pricey and I refuse to purchase anything Rocky Patel after I saw his stupid lifestyle of Rocky Patel video.

My Father is definitely my favorite. I also dabble in LFD. La Aroma de Cuba (made by My Father for Ashton) is a very reasonably priced stick and is quite good.

Warped La Colmena, Mbombay and Maya Selva Flor de Selva some of the only few NC I've purchased of late

Tatuaje.

Could be rose colored glasses though because that was my first favorite brand when I just got into cigars. Nabbed a box of Little Monsters and it opened my eyes.

The pardon 1926 #6 and #2 are both rock stars. Perfect construction every time Available in natural and Maduro wrapper. 13.50 and 16.50 in USA at my store. If you have not tried one do yourself a favor and grab a handful

I still have about 40 NC's... Alec Bradleys, My Fathers, Don Tomas, couple of CAO's, Avro,

They're tagged for when I absolutely have no Cuban's that I can smoke. All told, I'd probably reach for the My Father (1922, TBP).

Then again....

I have a few My Fathers left in the NC humi that I dip into from time to time.

Illusione is my go to NC followed by Tatuaje.  I recently enjoyed a La Mission du L'Atelier  at a Pete Jonson event and might try another one when I'm at my local B&M.

Yep. Those Serie 1926 and 1964 Aniversario can definitely sneak up on you.

I think for me it's a split between Davidoff, L'Atelier (I don't know if that falls under Tatuaje or My Father), and Herrera Esteli (which is a Drew Estate product). I have three boxes each of the L'Atelier La Tache and the Herrera Esteli Lancero and those two are what I will lean towards if I am smoking a NC every time, save for when I have Davidoff Grand Cru or regular No.2s on hand, or Millennium robustos.
