You can only smoke one regular production cigar from each marca... what are your choices?


Recommended Posts

You live in a future dystopian world where Habanos S.A. lets you have access to unlimited regular production cigars from every current marca. The only catch is that you can only choose one cigar from each. Faced with this conundrum, what are your choices?

You can pick one form every marca, but no more, or you can avoid any marcas all together.

Mine are...

Bolivar - Petit Coronas, Cohiba - Lancero, Diplomaticos - No.2 , ERDM - Choix Supreme, H. Upp - Mag 50, HDM - des Dieux, JLP - Cazadores, Juan Lopez - Petit Coronas, LGC - MdO No.2, Monte - Especial No.1, Party - 8-9-8, Por Larry - Montecarlos, Ramon Allones - Specially Selected, RyJ - Exhibicion No.4, SLR - Regios, San Cristobal - El Principe, Trini - Fundadores, VR - Famosos

I like the sound of this thread but not qualified enough to partake as I've not smoked all marcas listed or even enough vitolas to make an informed decision!

Bottom line - I should and will try more over time! spotlight.gif

I can totally understand your position, as I'm not some grand expert myself. I'm just hoping this becomes a fun exercise, especially for our more seasoned members!

My original idea was to make this a pol, but unfortunately a poll can only have 5 questions so I would need to put up 5 posts. I thought that would clutter the forum too much, but don't worry! I will compile everyone's responses and make a few charts and graphs and make a new post with the same title, just with "[RESULTS]" in the front.

Great topic Fumadoro...looking forward to your "Results" post as well

My first instinct was to just put down my favorite from each marca, but then I had to go back and factor in overall vitola selection...after all there are times when can't have a two hour cigar and then times when you NEED a 2 hour cigar :cigar:

Anyway here's my list:

Bolivar - Coronas Gigantes

Cohiba - Lanceros

Cuaba - Distinguidos

Diplomaticos - No. 2

Hoyo - Des Dieux

H Upmann - Sir Winston

Juan Lopez - Seleccion 2

LGC - Medaille d'or Nr 2

Monte - Number 2

Partagas - 898

Por Larragnaga - Petit Corona

Punch - DC

Quai D'orsay - Coronas

Rafael Gonzalez - Perlas

Ramon Allones - RASS

Rey Del Mundo - Choix Supreme

RYJ - Churchill

SLR - Serie A

San Cristobal - Principe

Sancho Panza - Molinos (Non Plus once Molinos dry up)

Trinidad - Fundadores

Vegas Robaina - Famosos

If a brand is missing, I either dont have a lot of experience with it (Vegas Robaina), there's only one vitola to choose from (Diplomaticos) or I just plain do not like the brand (Juan Lopez, La Gloria)

Cool post!

Oh, it will happen as long as we have enough responses to make it feel like a good sample.
