I got a $25 gift certificate to CI for Father's Day and it's burning a hole in my pocket. Help me decide what to do with it. I'm thinking of:

a) This sampler:


or b) Ten Fonsecas


or c) The More Cowbell sampler:


or d) Twenty Arganese


or e) just saving it waiting for something I already know I like to go on sale.

Feel free to add your own ideas, too. What do you think?

I'd say C, I've had the Morro Castle & while it was good I don't think I'd go out of my way to get one again.

The La Gloria and Morro Castle is already on my radar. The More Cow Bell sampler has some very good sticks as well. Aganese Maduro cannot compare to any. Fonseca is mild compared to them, not a good choice if you want bolder flavor.

My choice would be either c or e...

I have not had the cigars on the far right, but the other ones are good to solid. The GH 2002 and Sancho Panzas are PROVEN sticks.

The Padilla Hybrids are very decent after rest 5-6 months of rest. The 5 Vegas As are decent-- not bad.

I have some one year old Bahia's I have not sampled yet.

+1

The GH 2002 and Sancho Panzas are solid sticks, both are staples in my rotation.

The 5 Vegas A's are pretty decent. Bahia's are OK. I haven't tried the Padillas.

LGC has gone way downhill, or I'd say A. Given that I'd +1 to what most others have said on here, E if you can wait, C if you can't.

E, definitely. GH2002 bundle. Padilla Achilles or 1968, el truinifador, DP JJ, CAO Brazilia, Oliva G/O/V... among others that go on sale on a semi-regular basis at CI.
