Just put in another large order with cigar page.....geez.... sales tax is a killer. $33.00

What is the sales tax rate in your state?

TN is 9.75. But the big HOWEVER, no state income tax.

Since I do not pay retail price on cigars, and buy them exclusively on line, it would be hard to name just one. I've purchased a box of 10 Oliva V Melanios for $55 per box, which equals to $5.00 per stick, and this in my opinion are one of the best cigars out there, equal to Padron Aniversarios (which you will never find for under $10 a stick). I've also purchased AVOs, & Camachos, cigars for under $10 per stick. I normally buy my cigars on Cigar Page and wait for their sales. :)

Now, what I consider my favorite, may not be your favorite, we probably have different taste.

We are supposed to start getting a little snow today as well...just not quite as rare up here though! Its been a decent winter up so far at least as far as snowfall. But that can change in the next couple of months though.
Tucson is getting snow this morning.

Hopefully that will help a little for the dry summers. We only got about 1" inch of some fine sugar snow last night - It was so light I used the broom instead of a shovel on the driveway!
I have a sister that lives in S. CA and she the said the temp dropped to about 40 degrees, needless to say they were dressed like it was Antarctica :LOL:

Most of Arizona is getting hit by this winter storm. I bet the Ski resorts up in the mountains are happy.

Speaking of Tucson: I really enjoyed some local made cigars from a place called Buffalo Crown in Vail, AZ. You used to be able to customize them.

Yeah, I meant $10/stick when bought online, by the box.

Does your city shuts down when it snows? Here in Middle Georgia, any amount of snow, and our city shuts down completely. So, we beg for snow once in a while. LOL!!!

One of my Favorites in that price range, is the My Father-Le Bijou. My local shop charges about $13 a single stick. I buy them online for much cheaper. I just bought a full box, and get them at just over $8.00 each in quantity.

It's a 97 rated Cigar, and took Cigar of the year honors awhile back.

Power just went out where I'm at. All the drivers on the road can't drive when it rains, and they go into "Full Idiot mode" when it snows.

Rough day at work, have two troops who tested positive, and threw a monkey wrench to our 24/7 schedule. So, it’s a two cigar evening, an Arturo Fuentes that burned beautifully, and an Oliva V. Well, you guys know how I feel about Oliva cigars

I really like the AVO Classic @postoak - You can usually find them for around $6-$7 each online. Pretty good price point for a Davidoff made cigar.

I left a, not so flattering comment, on the internet about Cigar pages, slower then molasses, processing and shipping.
Next thing you know, I'm getting calls and emails from the honchos at cigar page to let me know my order is on the way.

Sometimes you have to shake the Sugar tree. At least that's what Pam Tillis told me.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
