My standard favorite is the Ashton Cabinet Selection, especially the 6x52 Pyramid, the 5.25x52 Belicoso, and the 7x49 #8. I also like the Ashton VSG series, and my all time favorite is the 7.5x52 Maduro #60.

The very first year boxes of Camacho Corojo, made from 1997 corojo seed crop, particularly the Lone Star flag-banded Texas Edition, are among the best smelling and tastiest cigars I've ever had. I'd love to find a few more boxes, but I suspect they are all now long gone. The four of them that remain in my humidor may be the last that I'll enjoy.

Too bad I don't still live just south of Baltimore or we could get together and smoke and drink a few

thats where i buy unless im buying a single stick. sadly my humidor only has some cheapy Consuegra cigars in it. not too bad for the price(very cheap). but my regular favorite is usually a normal punch Double Corona, although i have been wondering bout the Slim Panatellas (4X28) that come in a tin) for no other reason then to try them out. but i feel i should point out I'm new to most of this stuff so that is why I'm looking for suggestions.

Hey, those are a great lawnmower cigar! They come out of the Villazon factory and aren't bad for the price. Like a lot of "bundle" cigars, they call them "seconds" or "factory overruns", but this is generally a misnomer. They are really "practice" cigars rolled by novice rollers. It can take 20 years to become a master cigar roller.
