Add Fox Cigars to that list in the OP - I just got my first order from them and I'm super impressed.

So I checked out Fox Cigars after seeing this post, and noticed they had Oliva Connecticut Reserve boxes for 35% less than any other site, and free shipping. Ordered on Saturday, they show up Monday with an Oliva Series O and two Series G thrown in as well.

gently caress my wallet.

Anyone had a Partagas Benji Menendez Master Series?

It was a limited release in 2009 and 2013, if my memory is correct. I picked up a few in the majestuoso vitola ages ago at my local shop and really liked it. I was able to pick up a box of the prominentes before they all went out of stock, but Iím on the hunt for a cigar with a similar flavor.

Very solid medium body smoke. Everything MF makes is decent imo. Worth picking up a couple for sure.

Smoked one I found at the bottom of my humidor just yesterday and I concur - very solid.

What are the threadís thoughts on Plasencia? One of the guys at my B&M was talking them up. I got those Curivari and Warped samplers that Iím giving a couple of weeks to settle and then I want to try more Illusione if I can find a decent sampler. Whatís everyoneís lesser known brands they like?

The last cigar tasting / dinner I went to before COVID was sponsored by Plasencia and I smoked two at the dinner and took three home and I enjoyed all of them. Iím poo poo at tasting notes but I remember them having medium to strong flavors but not too hard of a nicotine hit.

With the increased traffic in the thread, I'd like to resurrect this question and also offer to trade a stick or two of these with any of you more frequent/experienced smokers who thinks they could offer some recommendations.
