What should I buy next?


Recommended Posts

Hi Friends,

I've been into cigars for about ten years now, and I was into CCs from the very beginning. Only recently, though, do I now have the means to begin some serious collecting. To that end, I've been working the past few months to build my collection. Below is a list of the marcas and vitolas that I have so far.

What do you recommend that I add to the collection next? I have to say that I really like every marca I've tried, so don't limit your recommendations to any particular brand. For me, theres a time and a place for every cigar.

I appreciate your help!

I would second the call for some DCs. It’s hard to go wrong with a Lusitania. Alternatively the montecristo especial or especial no.2 are some of my favourites and definitely worth a look.

IMO, you need some churchills and DCs. There aren't many left. Get 'em while you can. 

Thanks! Will be on the lookout :D.

Lusitanias had been on my list. But I wasn't familiar with these two Montes. Added to the list! Thank you.

I know the general feeling towards double banded cigars but I would recommend Ramón Allones Club Allones Edicion Limitada 2015 and the Romeo y Julieta Capuletos Edicion Limitada 2016, both being reasonably priced, especially the Ramon Allones, and neither is that hard to come buy.

I actually already have a box of the Club Allones! Got them from a 24:24 a few weeks back. I haven’t tried the Capuletos, though. Adding to the list. Thanks!

Oh sorry, I missed that. And I read your list three times...

Ha no worries! It’s a long (and growing) list.

I'd suggest buying depending on what's good production coming out of Cuba at any given moment.

As you say you haven't got any particular strong preferences, and given you are already fairly broad-based, I'd really take it from there and you'll be served well. Buy what's good and buy good value when on sale.

Thanks for all the recommendations so far! You all are such a wonderful resource. I really appreciate it. Let’s hope that the 24:24 gods will smile down on me and bring me some of these beauties.

A doghouse. You'll soon be in it:P

 

Well, unless you're wife is like mine. Unicorn farts and all!

I’m single!

While the single life has its downsides, an unlimited-sized humidor is not one of them. :lol:

Have you tried the Fonseca #1’s? Highly recommended if not. I picked up a box on 24:24 a few weeks ago (2015) and they are outstanding. 

I have not--added to the list!
