Cigar Bucket List

Or is it a bucket list of cigars?

Regardless, some interesting choices, some I am sure will cause some of you to clamp your rump

San Lotano Habano?

Those were good "cheapie" cigars in Saudi. It was one of the few NC's that I could find.

Well I've only missed 4 of them. (on this list) In fairness several were not what I would call limited, exclusive or hard to attain. Not really Bucket List worthy. They may be good smokes, but not Great Cigars.

If you want Real Bucket list cigars, they need to be something you cannot reasonably expect to find in the regular run of the mill B&M. Things like vintage or limited production cigars and of course the aged CC's. I would say 3 of the 10 on this list qualifies. For me I have been truly blessed by the CW Brothers and other cigar folks, because several times I was humbled by gifts and shared cigars.

My Bucket worthy List? I would think of Mouton Rothchilds, Farm House Trinidad's Laquito #3, 70's Monte #2 and #4's, Davidoff Dom Perignon's, 50 Habanos cabinet cigars, Cubatobaco 1492 cab cigars, H. Upmann Jar Cigars things like that. Plus, there are a number of Domestic Ltd cigars that are nearly as hard to put your mits on. Things like the first run of Tatuaje Blacks, in fact they were not even named or labeled when Pete Johnson gave me a handful to try. The original Oliva Masterblend. How about Original Paul Garmirian cigars, Real Camacho 11/18's and original release Liberty's and for Sir Gumby '94 Vintage Opus X.

I've had all of those Domestics, but If you haven't and you run across some, simply buy them, you will not be sorry. I've only had a few of those listed in the CC list, but they and others have been Amazing.

I remember one time back in Anchorage Alaska. An old Friend, that I had never met before, was in town and we met for dinner and chat at a place where we could smoke. He brought some "Shitty Old Cigars" as he put it ( they were 70's vintage CC's ) then we burned them down and it was Fantastic. Sometimes the cigar is the Star and sometimes it's the People. If you live right, every now and then you get Both at the same time, that was one of those nights.


Cheers, to you and your very own Bucket!

what makes a bucket list a bucket list? Not sure. Is price an issue? I can think of personal lists that have items that are not all that pricey.

I was surprised it had cigars you can actually find rather than just stuff you have to be a millionaire to buy.

But that is my opinion, attach whatever value to it that you desire
