I keep the bands from cigars I like too. I smoke so many different cigars and even after several years have not really settled on a "go to" smoke so there is no way I would be able to keep track otherwise. I do sometimes wonder though if some of the older bands I have would make the cut now that my taste is a bit more refined. I guess I will find out someday.

There are only a few Gurkhas I really enjoy, but that seems to be hit and miss among the brand. They have way too many different Gurkhas to keep track of. The only place you will actually pay MSRP for a Gurkha is a brick and mortar shop. At MSRP most that I have had a definitely not worth it, but at sale prices many are not bad.

So much of cigars are personal taste and what you enjoy. Taste also changes the more you try. If you like the stick then enjoy it!

I like those two and really like the symphony when I'm in the mood for a mild cigar with some flavor.

I think I've enjoyed just about every Pepin stick I've had. I warmed up with the Cuban classic black and the dpg blue. I've meant to try some of the more expensive stuff too, just don't make enough opportunities to have one.

I'm about at the point I need to go back through mine too. Figure I'll grab 2 of each I have in there(excluding the ones I know I want in my normal rotation) and put em through the grinder again. Then try and filter it down to what I thinks best and keep 5ers on hand of those.

Speaking of Pepin my box of 601 Green Label robustos is almost here. Leathery sweet, spicy, tasty little powerhouses. Can't wait.

I think CA's lists are kinda BS.... but if you haven't smoked a MF Flor De Las Antillas its a must smoke. It landed CA's #1 of 2012. I've kept these in my rotation ever since my first one. Though their not as full bodied as I usually like their definitely box worthy IMO..

One of the nice thing about them is their price. Robusto box of 20 for about $100 normally. From time to time you can get boxes for like $40-50 between sales and using promo codes.

The green labels are a bomb! They make my mouth all tingly! I wish the band stayed the same as the new 601 bands look cheap but make it much easier to distinguish a black from a blue in low light.
