Anyone know what this is?

I need help ID'ing the middle cigar. Sold some stuff on offer up and the guy paid me in stogies instead of cash. Got some really nice smokes and he threw that giant in. It's sitting next to a standard Toro and a Perfecto. The length is the same as a Churchill with about an 80 ring gauge. Are these common or are there only a few people who make these?

Good luck trying to identify an unbanded/unlabeled cigar. Maybe someone else here has the same one, but even then, knowing conclusively from a photo can prove daunting. Have you asked the guy about it?

Edit*
Hard to tell from the photo, but is the light colored (claro) wrapper tan (Conecticut) or green (double claro or Candela)?

It looks like Connecticut and Maduro. No green in it. I fully intend on smoking it, lol... Just need to set 2 or 3 hours aside and get comfy. Seems like it will be a long ride. Thanks for everyone's help. I know it would be almost impossible to ID without a band on it. Was just hoping these things weren't very common. I've seem barber poles by diesel and asylum13, just never one this size.

I think it may be a Taboo cigar from back in the day since it has no band. At least that’s the last time I saw something that looked like that. When they first made them they had no band at all

Not a bad cigar they used to have a great following back on the day but then interest fell off when quality went down.
