In the last couple of weeks I've gotten on this perfecto kick. I've only tried the AF Hemingways. Seems like I don't hear alot about this shape. Does anyone else smoke these and if so do you have any recommendations? I would really like to find some that are full bodied with a maduro wrapper. Thanks for your help.

Looking for perfecto with full-body and maduro wrapper. I would recommend some of the following:

Onyx Reserve No.2 Belicosos
Trilogy Exotic Maduro Torpedo (not quite full-body, but tasty)
Avo Maduro Belicoso

I think those are some good ones to try out. Let me know what ya think.

One of the first cigars I used to smoke way back in the day was the Philly Perfecto. :r I'm almost embarrased to say it. Its on a par with White Owl. Isn't it a real eye opener the first time you have a good hand-rolled cigar after having cheap machine made ones?

All DOM Partagas Serie "S" are perfecto shape. I'm not a maduro fan so I don't know if they come in maduro. It the shape that's different but the blend is the same as the regular partagas.

Forgot about that line. Good call. I think you're right in that I don't think i've ever seen them in maduro.

Nicaraguan Selection Sun Grown Maduro Double Perfecto
Honduran Selection Blend 1945 Duck
Honduran Selection Blend 1945 Duckling

another Torano:
Toraño Nicaraguan Selection Perfecto

Matt is a mad man! That's quite the list. I'll second the Gurkha Legend Anniversario...it's quite a smoke. I know you said the Hemingway line but if you have not had the Work of Art maduro, and you can find one, grab it.

Well, they weren't listed at CAO International, but it was a short perfecto, box pressed, 4 3/4x52 (is listed in the database as 4 3/4x46) & is only offered in the maduro that I can find anymore.
CI has them listed with the maduro with an eta of 7-10 days, which means nothing.
I could have sworn that a year or two ago, you could buy them in the Cameroon & the Extreme lines. I may have to look back in a catatlog & see what I can find.

I would stay away from the Napoleans.. I had a box and all of them were plugged.. CAO is aware of the problem and quit making them quite a while ago..

That was my experience also... tried a few a couple of years ago... they were what a creative cigar salesman would call a FIRM draw... :r

Nasty little buggers....

I think that I finally just gave the rest of them away to unsuspecting coworkers... they don't know anything about cigars anyway... except that they were FREE!!! :w
