Latest Cigar Purchase

Had trouble location Por Larranaga Monte Carlos for awhile now. Ran out early this year and they’ve been scarce. They’re a rare example of an old vitola that can be smoked fresh instead of waiting through a “sick period”. When they were available, they’d crept up to the $5/stick range late Spring. That may not sound steep, but I was getting them at $3.50/per late last year.
Found some on sale for a reasonable $3.70 ea. Ordered two boxes to satisfy my occasional cigar cravings (mostly smoke pipes now). Should be here in a few weeks.

Most of the cigars I still smoke now are Lancero, Panatella or Corona size sticks. Sadly, these sizes are becoming quite rare due to the “per cigar” taxes in most States - everyone wants as much tobacco per stick as they can handle, which explains 60-ring cigars.
I’ll be looking for La Gloria Cubana Medaiile d’Oro #4s next - also tough to find at a reasonable price, if at all.
