Anyone have any reccomendations for Cuban singles? I have increased my collection but still only buy singles (for now). I rarely smoke my cubans (relying on domestics for the everyday smokes) but love to look at them *drooling* and have them in my humi waiting for just the right occasion. Reminds me of collecting baseball cards as a kid i guess... Thanx...

Yeah I do have some recomendations..
Quit drooling and try um...

Really go for it..
There is one thing we can all count on. There's always more cigars...

Try one or two and post a review..Let us know what you find out that you like. Once we have an Idea of that we can suggest a few that would meet your tastes..

I enjoy the hoyo dbl coronas... and partagas d4 from what I have tried. I tried a couple of monte's but the seem a little too floral (does that seem right?) for me. As far as size goes, i prefer a 50+ guage and 4.5-6" in length although I am open to anything.

I'd recommend buying one of every size produced under every brand:w

Honestly, I would buy some singles from each brand to get a taste of what you like. Also try different sizes in each brand. Here's just a few of what you could start out with:

Tres petit coronas
-San Cristobal El Principe
-Cohiba siglo I
-Partagas short
-Bolivar corona junior
-Ramon allones small club corona
-Monte 5

Petit coronas
-Bolivar PC
-Partagas PC
-Punch royal selection #12
-Romeo y Julieta PC
-Monte #4
-H Upmann petit corona

Lonsdales (and sizes similar, but not technically lonsdales)
-Punch Super selection #1
-Partagas 898 varnished
-La Gloria medialle d'oro #2
-ERDM lonsdale
-Rafael Gonzales lonsdale

Corona Gordas
-Punch punch punch, and super selection #2
-H Upmann Magnum 46

Robustos
-Partagas Series D #4
-H Upmann series du conniseur #1
-Juan Lopez #2
-Hoyo epicure #2

Now I didn't cover all the other sizes such as churchills, double coronas, panatelas, coronas, etc., and I missed a whole ton of other models; but this should give you a good start.

I can relate to what you are trying to do because I find myself going through them BY THE BOX once I get on a roll.

If you are wondering where to start, for what its worth, its hard to go wrong IMHO with the Partagas Short Cab or the Mag 46. Both those cigars only bother you when they're gone.

Get some reasonably priced sticks for everyday smoking and drool on the really rare stuff.

Recently did a box split with a good friend for H.Upmann Sir Winston's which I thought were good smokes, and will probably age very well.
Just my two cents.

nero- my suggestion would be to sample by size... start with your favorite size, e.g. robustos, i think you said. so try all the robustos... this way you can find your favorite brand or 2 or 3... then work within those brands going up or down in size depending on what you like. send me anything you don't like.


filly- do you know how van nuys got its name? a long time ago, before all the people from ohio moved into the valley :p a bus load of old jews from boyle heights were touring the then undeveloped valley... they made a stop and when one old lady stepped out of the bus she said, "my, dis is van nuys!" (translation: very nice) :D
