What is in your rotation?

In the vaunted golden days, the first few years of this forum, we often asked each other this question.

For the last, most recent years, we have our "What are you smoking today" threads. I found a few of these today in searching for for information. I sometimes found the "rotation" posts beyond my abilities and thus had a bit of disdain. I had some nasty ideas and a distinct lack of charity at times in those days.

No longer; I look back and remember them now fondly.
In addition, in those days money was tight, as it is now, and SO MANY DAMNED GOOD PEOPLE bombed me into oblivion so often. Winning contests helped me for years. Now, circumstances of life have me away from my home and my family on an almost permanent basis living with my aging mother; and my refuge, now, is my routine of sitting outside every night with a cigar. I am nearly at my wits' end.

So I have been buying cigars a good bit more these days.

Thus, my rotation includes:
  • Villazon maduro toro and belicoso
  • Cusano Nicaragua Churchill
  • Cusano Maduro Churchill
  • Don Rafael Churchill
  • Ave Maria Immaculata
  • Ave Maria Divina
  • Ave Maria Lionheart
  • Ave Maria Argentum
  • Alec Bradley Coyol--although I save these a bit as they don't go on sale as much, but they rock my world right now.
  • Old Henry
  • Gran Habano
  • Carlos Toraño
My buddy Stan sends me smokes and I work these in every few days.
My posting of daily deals also helps me to know what's a good buy and when to pull the trigger.

So, how about you? What's in your rotation?

90% of the time I'm smoking an Oliva MB3 Churchill. Others that I smoke frequently include: Punch Pita Maduro, CAO GOL Brazilia and Samba, Flor de Oliva Gold Churchill, and Punch Rothschild Maduro and Rare Corojo. I smoke others as well, but those are on the "top" of my list and rotation.

Been on a run of Cain F toros and Cain conn. toros. Oliva V lancero also in the mix. Holts always seem to have the Cains on sale when I'm ready to order.

To be honest, the Ave Marias I purchase in fivers and tenners when they are on sale. So, even though they are in the rotation, I smoke maybe one of each per week at most to save them.

I tend to smoke the value sticks (Regional Primeros Nicaraguan toros and Nicaraguan Cream torpedos and robustos) more often lately because I've got more of them. They're also nice when spaced between the more costly sticks.

Actually I do not have a definite rotation. I look at my collection and choose whatever looks good. It's just whatever suits me at the time.

Past couple of years I have been smoking either a Black Works Studio Killer Bee Petit Corona or a Cornelius and Anthony Aerial Corona Gorda daily. Since C&A is apparently gone I'll need to find a substitute when I run out of those. Fortunately I got 2 boxes on closeout before they were gone. Otherwise something Warped or something else Black Label Trading fairly regularly.

I forgot to add Mombacho. They're kind of a pain for me to get, but so worth it.
