    Tonight I had a Alec Bradley Prensado Churchill. This cigar was rated 96 by CA and chosen as the 2011 Cigar Of The Year. I can see why. This cigar was absolutely stunning.

    Just smoked two Cohiba Pequenos little cigars. Not sure what the consensus is on these, as I'm far from an expert, but they're not bad.

    Like it is with Bourbon, nobody is more of an expert in what you like than you are.

    That being said, it really depends on which Cohiba it is... as there are three.

    1. Cuban Cohibas - difficult to get in the US, usually a very good cigar, but has some quality issues and the risk of fakes is high. Expensive... but when you get a good one, they are damn near perfect.

    2. Dominican Cohibas - similar band as the Cubans, very light taste, almost boring. The only time I smoke these is when somebody gives them to me thinking that the name Cohiba means it is a top cigar, and I don't want to appear ungrateful.

    3. Honduran Cohibas. Made in Honduras (obviously) by General Cigar. Easy to spot because they have a red dot in the "O" in the name on the band. Also the band is completely different from the other 2. Rich flavor. Much better than the Dominican, not as good as the Cubans, but far more consistent and without the risk of fakes. A bit more expensive than I care to spend, there are other things I would be more likely to get for the price.

    To put it in bourbon terms, the Cubans is like Pappy 20, the hard to get standard that all others are measured by, but you aren't sure if you are getting S-W or BT juice. The Dominican would be more like Rebel Yell, a weak watered down replica and the Honduran would be Maker's Mark, a quality product that while not up to Pappy is good in its own right, if a bit overpriced for what it is.

    But, cigars like bourbon has a high YMMV factor to it. So smoke what you like and like what you smoke.
