The Anejo shark and Gof Serie B are my favorites of the bunch. Though I'm still waiting to see how I like an Opus with a few years age on them so that may be my new favorite.
Well, your cigar budget is much healthier than mine...as best as my humi has is one Opus X. As they say, every humi should have one Opus X .

As for me, I always have wanted to try the Hemingway Between the Lines...yeah its rated only marginally better than the Short Story and three times the price if you can even find it so I know I'm just giving into gimick barbershop pole stripe wrapper, but like they say, when you turn off the light all girls look the same...I'm just a lights on kind of guy, so call me a sucker for looks too.

I was able to get everything for a good price. About $9 a piece for the Anejos. The 3 of the Opus were gifted to me and I bought a tin of 3. I also bought a CRA sampler a while back with the 10 cigars below and a year membership for $100. So that Opus was basically $10.

Those look like nice sticks. Are those CRA special sticks?


If you love fuente you have to visit Casa Fuente in Vegas.

Kinda. They only made 4000 of the samplers for CRA and banded them with a CRA band.

I know I enjoy them both! That la flor dominica you got there looks just like the double legaro I've been hoarding in the bottom of my humi for a while. You tried them before? I'm sure it will be good but I haven't lit one up before.
