Gentleman Jack is really good but I like the single barrel better. Mostly I drink Makers Mark and Knob Creek if I'm in the mood for bourbon. Though I always enjoy a nice aged scotch like Glenlivet or Johnny Walker.

Had a Punch Rare Corojo tonight. It was so-so. I used to really enjoy Punch cigars but lately they haven't been doing it for me. Next up will be one of the Gurkhas from the deal I just got today. Not sure which one I'm gonna bring in Friday.

i just got a 10 pack of Gurkha XO Titans off cigarbid.com for $22.00. They said they normally sold for $325.00... not sure how much to believe that, but I hope they're good.

I wonder about that stuff too. I used to look at CigarMonster a bit. Some deals look too good to be true. Are they blends that they were hoping to push at $15+ a stick and nobody would buy them? Because they were $$$? Didn't know the brand? Etc.

Ron Zacapa is the way to go in my opinion... SO smooth. Also, Diplomatico and Appleton Estate 12 yr are decent.

I have to agree. Ghurka is a hyped up and extremely overpriced name thats becoming more recognized for the mediocrity of their cigars than the quality they attempt to portray with their price. Grab some Diesel Unholy Cocktails they are the best budget smoke by far IMO and are far passed the quality of any Ghurka I've ever had. Taste of course is highly subjective but more and more stogie lovers are finding Ghurkas to be a let down. But if you like em, enjoy em. Always like what you smoke and smoke what you like.
