considering a 10 count of their lower end offerings from overseas...

any clear preferences between the mille fleur(cello) or the deluxe A/T?

been a while since I've had either...short money in any event, just looking for a smaller cheap winter alternative.
Thanks

ever try their culebras? one of my fave Parties...



seriously, for the same price as a 9ct box of Culebras, you can get a box/25 ct of Partagas Habaneros, 3 mm thinner, but just as much flavor as MF...

Obviously Black Labels are the high bar for Partagas.

just gave a box of culebras to someone for Christmas, think I paid $69 for the 9 count, but won't help me in January and February. I smoked one or two from rfenster a while back and like them.

Just been looking at a 10 count of the op vitolas for mid $40's shipped, nothing to store/age, just to smoke up during the winter. I think Ravi has stock from 2016 and up.

I'm a fan of the shorts, knowing you I'd love the CE's too...but just looking at two 10ski offers, not for serious smoking, but I do tend to like that party profile.

so, here's another factor...
I don't always like tubos. a major exception was some Punch petit coronations several years ago. But I just don't always enjoy others. Could be mental.

Always enjoy the Culebras. Found the Partagas - Super Partagas (5.5 x 40 ) to be a similar flavor profile although slightly larger in gauge than the culebra (5.8 x 39)

The Blacks are OK for a domestic, but remember they dye the wrappers, and they are far different in flavor profile from an authentic Partagas

If you are saying that you have gone mental, yes, I agree.

Of what you tossed out there Frank, I'd get the Mille Fleur, although they haven't been packed in cello for about 15 years IIRC.

Given more low cost options in the Partagas line, I'd get the Super Partagas.

Opening it up a bit more for that price range, personally, I'd buy Fonseca Delclias.

makes sense, even in my present state of mind.

Happy New Year Adam, thanks for your help this year.

I always say that you should smoke your cigars...don't know why, but I also "save" a few that I really should smoke...not getting any younger...

I was going to suggest those because I know a lot of people that prefer them over the Party shorts but thought you were trying to stay under the $50 range.

I don't think you'll get what your looking for to include free delivery. $100 is the usual minimum for free delivery.

I was intending to get a 10ski and stay under $50, but this works out better.
Last box I bought was RyJ C en C for about the same price.

Order from Ravi? They will be fine. Great smoke especially for the price at $3.40/sigar. Good ROTT also. Never been able to age them for any significant length of time.
