Your daily cheap and cheerful

Recommended Posts

I am new to this forum and started posting to the daily smoke post in the watering hole but it seems everyone posts their fancy cigars so I followed suit. PLMC seems the only cheap and cheerful I see.

I thought maybe start a daily thread here if others think it's a good idea.

My c&c of the day: Partagas mille fleurs.

Light rain so I'm on my front porch...

Smoking well 25 minutes in. This box had some tight draws but this one is just right (after a tiny touch of perfecdraw).

Edit: 60 minutes to the nub.

Quintero Petit Quintero.

Half hour smoke time. Light pleasant smoke.

Had a Quintero panetela yesterday. Not enough smoke output for me.

A Montecristo Purito that wasn't harsh as it tends to be but actually had some cinnamon or spice flavour.

And a Fonseca Delicias. First one I've had. Didn't make much of an impression.

I have changed my daily from JLP Brevas to Por Larranage Panetela. I got two boxes last week for $58 each and I love them!

I have had plenty of PLPC and just received some well aged Panatela's. Going to let them sit for a few months. They look great

I bought some Fonseca KDT Cadetes (recommended on a C & C thread here a while back) and got a 2015 box.

They are surprisingly good--not complex but just a consistent, relaxing and pleasant little morning smoke with black coffee.

San Cristobal El principle '18
Pre light was a bouquet of light coco and a heavy floral scent. Almost wanted to bite it and eat it. Such a good smoke especially since it's been a while since I smoked one.

I am in the same boat, love them but have not had one in some time. Another to put on my list. 

 

Good thread, I need to add some cheap and cheerfuls to my rotation. 
 

I am pretty sure I will go with the PL Pantelas.

Du depute ROTT and a Nespresso. Just got a box for $105.

Have two boxes of Partagas Shorts on the way for under $200.

Trying to keep it C&C as it looks like I may get burned on customs for some not so C&C cigars... 🤞

Por Larranaga Panetela.

Pretty badly plugged. Perfecdraw most of the way through reduced it to merely tight. About halfway through the draw opened up and it improved a lot. On the other hand tight draw have me a one hour smoke time 🙂 and I stayed out long enough to get a visit from my late night backyard skunk.
