    1) The Fratello in robusto or corona. Found out about this cigar from this site. Had trouble fining it until I tracked it down to the Nat Sherman Townhouse here in NYC. It was worth the effort. Great construction, great smoke. Big flavors of pepper early on, moving towards earth and chocolate. My first experience with Peruvian tobacco and there were some flavors I couldn’t quite recognize.

    2) The East India Trading Company Rogue in Rascal, Tyrant, or Ruthless. This cigar just poured rich smoke out of both ends. Full bodied flavors of pepper early on, and gets sweeter as it goes on. The thickness of the smoke is very creamy. Although advertised as a full strength powerhouse, I found it to be quite reasonable in strength.

    3) 7-20-4 Dog Walker. This cigar is exactly as advertised. For the person that wants a quality cigar, but doesn’t have much time. You can finish this in 30 minutes. Generates lots of smoke for a small cigar. Trimming off the pigtail makes a perfect punch-type cut that directs flavors of pepper and then coffee and chocolate directly on the tongue.

    • Jared

      Fratello is brand new this year and is EXTREMELY hard to find. Just so happens Nat Sherman is one of the places that carries it! Lucky you!

    1- Lou Rodriguez Connecticut Pantela. This is my cigar of choice. GREAT with a cup of coffee in the morning!

    2- Padron 1926 No 2. I had one at my local BnM and it was a great smoke. Great transitions and flavors.

    3- Danger Cigars 1100. Bought at local shop with ties to the guy whose name is on the cigars. It’s a medium body that flows into a nice full-bodied flavor. No bitterness.

  • lazyboy

    Any other top 3 list would be easier than this.
    – rocky Patel vintage 2nds
    -90+ rated 2nds (on ci)
    – perdomo champaign noir
    Yeah I’m cheap most the time. But why waste money on bands.

    It really depends on how I feel, but if I had to…

    – Ashton Aged Maduro Robusto
    – Zino Platinum Z-Class 550R
    – Padron 1926 Maduro #9

    These are some really smooth cigars w/ really great flavor.

    1. Liga Privada Feral Flying Pig. I swear it’s not just psychological, with my brain buying into the hype!

    2. Wynwood Factory Fresh Rout Toro (the one with the black band).

    3. Rocky Patel II-XXVI in toro. I’m not usually a huge fan of Rocky’s stuff, but this one… oh, this one…

  • VWCC2013

    This is somewhat of a hard one. I like a lot of cigars. However, my top 3 as of right now would be:

    1.) Drew Estate Liga Privada No.9 Parejo Oscuro (Toro. My all time favorite cigar. It is expensive at $13.40 where I live, but I always keep a few in my humidor.
    2.) Padron 2000 Natural. Phenomenal cigar, especially for an everyday smoke. Very budget friendly.
    3.) Rocky Patel Edge Corojo. Also, a phenomenal cigar for an everyday smoke. Very budget friendly like the Padron 2000.

    1. Diesel D.7 – great cigar when I have a few hours actually sit and relax.
    2. Alec Bradley Nica Puro – my go-to morning smoke. Goes great with coffee and has a perfect burn that requires no attention.
    3. Ghurka Ghost – strong evening cigar when I feel like a little liquor with my beer.

    Shared on Facebook

  • Jared

    Will have to think hard for top three…

    1. Joya de Nicaragua Antano Dark Corojo: BOOM, BIG big flavor and smoke. Literally the most flavorful smoke I’ve ever had. AND easy to get a hold of.

    2. Alec Bradley Overture: Famous Smoke exclusive, full body, relaxing musty aged tobacco flavors. Can get cheap.

    3. Crowned Heads Four Kicks: Excellent go-to stick, great for the driving range, grilling, picnicking, whatever. Very reasonable price.

  • Pilotdude3407

    1:) Oliva V Melanio. Best smoke to date. My go to for special nights on the porch.

    2.) My Father Le Bijou 1922. Right up there with the Melanio and another special occasion favorite.

    3.) 5 Vegas Gold Maduro. Great everyday smoke, and mild enough to have throughout the day, even on an empty stomach.

    I am brand new to this whole cigar thing and I am trying to learn what I like. I have had a lot of diff people tell me what I would like?? But I find that I like a mild smoke so far but there are exceptions. I like the RP Connecticute , VS Legacy Box Pressed, But my fav is Ashton Heritage puro sol. Even though I can not afford to have them.
