OT- Need a Cigar Reccomendation

I like cigars.  I usually smoke the following:  Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story's, Rockey Patel Connecticut Robustos, 5 Vegas-Golds, Romeo Y Julietta No2 Tubos (Cubans). 

Looking for a small nice stick for later tonight before cooking the NY Strips.  Planning on stopping at the cigar store on the way home as I am out of small smokes.  By small - 30 minute smoke.  Looking for a medium bodied cigar with good flavor.

What ya got?

  • Nub or 5 Vegas. Not much of a cigar expert here, but those are good. Acid makes some good infused sticks, if that interests you.

    Just had a Drew Estate My Uzi Weighs a Ton. Strange name but a good stick. It is a 60 ring gauge so it might be a bit much for your time constraints. 2 of my other favorites are CAO Americas or Alec Bradley Family Blend. The Alec Bradley is probably my favorite.

    All of these are medium bodied. They have a sweet flavor at the start and finish bolder but smooth.

  • Man you guys are killing me with this cigar talk. I've not had one for a couple years and with it being cold outside I'm not sitting outside to have one now.

    It really sounds nice right now! Enjoy!

  • My all time favorite is PG or Paul Gamirian. He is a boutique cigar, but not too expensive. Best smoke ever. He does not advertise like some. So it may be unfamiliar to some. Excellent. I also live AVO maduro. The Churchill brand (not size) are excellent but very pricey. I think the overall best that I will smoke till my fingers burn is a PG any day!!!

    Why would you switch from the Short Story? One of the best 30 minute sticks ever. We do Xmas eve dinner at a steakhouse every year. Pay way too much for a big tomahawk steak and then hit the cigar bar for a smoke and a couple Obans. Got a nice Opus X torp for the evening...should be good for an hour or more. Giddyup and merry Christmas.
