I ordered some as special occasion smokes. I got lucky last week and got a Fuente Fuente Opus X in a 1 of 4000 sampler specially made for CRA. For $100 I got a year script to CRA and these 10 beauties

The Maximus is a favorite of mine as well just a little over priced. I love Maduros with a dark beer or bourbon. Carlos Torano, Gloria Cubana, Cusano, Oliva, Patel, Padron, Punch, San Lotano. Lot's of pics on Instagram zachattacksphx

Cool, stogies and brew, two of my favorite subjects!

I first seriously tried Cigars while in Cuba. I was not a smoker, but it would just not be right to visit Cuba without trying their famous cigars (same could be said of Cuban women...but my wife did not buy that argument! \"\"). A Monte Cristo #2 and a Mojito became our regular evening cocktail combination....after which I usually nodded off in the cockpit of the boat and woke up in the wee hours of the night.

I did not know jack about cigars when I first tried them, but in Cuba it was hard to purchase a bad cigar...even the counterfeit/contraband smokes you can buy on the street were pretty damn good. But, I soon discovered that it was easy to buy crappy cigars back in the USA...and thus began my eduction.

Now, my personal preference is very dark robustos. I like the dark rich taste and the typical smoke time (2-3 beers) of the robusto size.

My overall favorite is the Partagas 1845 Black Label....although there are lots of second place contenders.

I've lived in Central America (Belize & Guatemala) since 2005. Ironically, it can sometimes be a challenge to find a good cigar here because most of the good stuff is exported. Although, I did find some very nice cigars on a recent trip through Grenada, Nicaragua at Dona Elba's cigar factory. They gave me a very good maduro to sample and a nice glass of Flor de Cana rum to go along with it. See http://www.elbacigars.com/. And, it would be hard to find a more suitable venue to partake of a good puro and a cocktail than scenic Grenada...a still beautiful colonial era city on Lake Nicaragua....like a nostalgic trip back in time.

So I finally got to check and I didn't have the Serie R just the Serie N. I remember liking it but not being blown away compared to some of the other sticks I have.
