If you were to buy ten non-cuban cigars (<$30 each) to store for special occassions, what would you buy?

So far I have been thinking I'd go with these for starters:

2x Arturo Fuente Anejo Shark No. 77 (probably wait till 'round xmas for these)
2x Padron 1964 Anniversary Imperial Maduro
2x Padron Padron Serie 1926 No. 1 Maduro
2x Opus X Forbidden X (Gift set, I've had them before and they are amazing)

As for the other 2, I really am not sure.

I'm going to buy a box of the La Gloria Cubana Torpido No. 1 Maduros, otherwise those would be on the list too...

Ok here goes.

1. Padron 1964 Anni Maduro Torpedo
2. Perdomo Edition de Silvio Torpedo
3. Perdom Estate Selection Torpedo
4. Padron Serie 1926 Torpedo
5. Fuente Fuente Opus X XXX
6. Ashton VSG Torpedo
7. Oliva Master Blend Torpedo
8. Oliva O Maduro Orion Torpedo
9. Oliva O Bold Orion Torpedo
10. Padron 1964 Anni Torpedo (Not Maduro)

I actually have all of these in my humidor for special ocations. With the exception of the Ashton RIght now. All of these Cigars are under $30 in my area. The most Expensive is the Edition de Silvio Torpedo at $25 a piece.

The least Expensive is the Oliva O at around $6.10 a piece then the Opus X at around $8.25. These are authentic I bought them from and authorized Opus X dealer. Then the Master Blend at $10.50. Then the Estate Selection at $11.00. The 1964 Anni Both natural and Maduro for $15.00 and the 1926 for 16.00.

None of them are even close to $30.00/each, but damn good doemstics, especially at the prices.

Camacho Diploma
Camacho Corojo Monarca Maduro (best of the 3 recent maduro releases, IMHO)
Camacho SLR Rothschild Maduro
La Aroma De Cuba
Padron Cortico Maduro (only domestic "small" cigar that I think still delivers flavor like a bigger size cigar)

La Aroma De Cuba Robustos are one of my all-time favorites, partly because of the quality:price ratio. Smoked one last night actually.

kamikai, you wouldn't happen to be a fan of torpedos would you? :rolleyes:

I love topredo's. They seem to me to be just better made cigars. I prefer to smoke them.. I laso like other types. For Example Pyramids :r

3 - Padron 1964 Anniversary Maduro Exclusivo
3 - Opus X Forbidden X
2 - Rocky Patel Vintage 1992 Churchill
2 - RyJ Vintage III

Not a very fancy list I admit, but would serve my purpose of satisfying different "cigar moods" I find myself in. Not to mention this list would probably change tomorrow, haha.

If you had to pick one of those Graycliffs, which would you get. :D

my go-to is the crystal pirate - smooth and creamy, great smelling smoke... ohhhhh.... be back in an hour ;)

Espresso is a "special" thing - think: "Do I want to be knocked on my a** right now?" before picking one of these up.

Okay, here I go! I think these will reflect my eclectic tastes! :D

2 Sabor Cubana Torpedoes
2 Don Diego Robustos
2 Gurkha Robustos
2 La Tradicion Churchill
2 Maria Mancini Magic Mountain

Picking out cigars one really likes is such a personal preference, but I like all of these and would not hesitate to recommend any of them!
