    Cubans

    All

    I'll be traveling to Ireland in a few weeks and was wondering what Cubans I should pick up. Any specific brands that I MUST try?

    Cohiba, if you can find the real ones. I saw a thread on here not too long ago about how to tell the difference.

    I tend to smoke smaller, medium to full bodied cigars. These 10 or so are some of the best I've ever had.

    Coronas Gorda: Punch Punch and H. Upmann Magnum 46 (both better than Cohiba Siglo IV IMO and significantly less expensive)

    Robustos: I love Ramon Allones Specially Selected, Partagas Serie D #4, and H. Upmann Connoisseur #1. Cohiba Robusto is muy bien, maybe the best of this size, but close to twice the price of these three.

    Coronas and Petit Coronas: Bolivar Corona and PC, Punch Royal Selection 12. (better than the much more popular Montecristo #4)

    Minutos (4x40): Trinidad Reyes and Partagas Shorts


    Hope this helps,

    Jeff

    Any information helps. I had a box of 'real' Dominican Cohibas. The first one I had I didn't care for, the second one was very nice though. I'm a newbie when it comes to puros so maybe my palette is maturing a bit.

    The Cuban Romeo & Juliettas are just as good as the Cohibas IMO and a lot cheaper.

    Ed,
    Try the Cohiba Esplendido. Make sure it's not a counterfeit.

    Monte Cristo # 2, expensive but the pyramid all other pyrmaid's are measured up to.

    MonteCristo #2 is my favorite cigar of all time. You definately should try it.

    I don't know, my buddy told me they run about $40. I don't think I have enough cigar experience to appreciate something like that yet.
