One of my faves is the Fallen Angel by AJ Fernandez. It’s probably a CI house blend. It’s got a bit more finesse than some of AJ’s stuff and can usually be had for ~$3. Don’t bid against me!

There also appears to be 4 vitolas, all of which I plan to smoke except the Gordo :-)

But yeah at the end of the day, it is an excellent (and affordable!) cigar l! :-)
That's a Tabasa made by Aganorsa Leaf. Tabacalera Casa Fernandez recently changed their name to "Aganorsa Leaf". 10 years ago or so Casa Fernandez released a cigar called "Aganorsa Leaf".

Na, wasnt any of those but I do remember the famous nice 3ks. This is gonna bug me now. They were unbranded and you could only get them from the manufacturer. I wanna say they were down in FL. Everyone bought them in wheels of 50 cause they were so cheap.

The name CFO (Cigar Factory Outlet) comes to mind, although I can't find anything about them online so I could be wrong. I 100% remember the same thing as you, but it's been 8-10 years since ever seeing any of those around

I forgot all about them.... Yeah, CFO was the direct sale place I remember too for bundles of Quroums for like 50-cents a cigar and other cigars for about a buck.

What I don't remember was if the cigars were that good, or we were just young and stupid looking for decent cigars at a bargain price.

Me too!! I love the Fallen Angels, I noticed them being really well reviewed, just not reviewed very often. Certainly not nearly as often as AJs other stuff anyway. To date I've only smoked the perfectos, thanks to some jerk that recently outbid me on Cigarbid. :-)

And T.G./ The other Adam - thanks for the info, that clears it up much more. They've seemed to have switched a lot up at Casa Fernandez in the last 10 years or so, which can make their stuff a bit convoluted at times!

I distinctively remember their busted old 90's website and their "CFO #3 tastes like Tatuaje, CFO #5 takes like X" and enjoying pretty much everything I got. But I also used to be pretty dumb, some would argue I still am, so who knows :-):-)

AAYYYEEE that's the one!!! I remember being blown away for the value of them. Were they as good as a $15-$20? No. But I'd put them in the $5-$8 dollar category all day long... and for only .50!?

Yes, that website was a mess. :-) I remember Dougie and Knugget always saying "just call Barb forget the website...."

Yeah, that's the NC cigar industry for you. Padron and Fuente seem to be the only stable independent ones. Everyone else is always dicking around with something it seems.


Actually, Perdomo is pretty even keeled too now that I think about it.

Glad you guys figured it out, my next thought was the Tampa Sweethearts.

Back with another recommendation!

Ramon Bueso Genesis Habano - this one *has* to be included in the list, full bodied and full flavor, but I don't see lots of people reaching for these, probably because their price falls more in the budget category? If you've smoked one though, you know what time it is.
Beautiful, and I mean really - beautiful oily shiny wrapper that is definitely indicative of the flavor within. If you are a fan of full bodied smokes, do yourself a favor and check this one out. :-)
