SJ-9

Susan or anyother Cigar Aficionado,
Has anyone tried the Sonny Jurgenson #9 (SJ-9) cigar? Very good cigar for about $9.

For the small amount of cigars I smoke, 1 maybe 2 a weekend I don't mind that price. I'm picking up some tonight, I'll ask who makes them. It's a very mild cigar compared to the LaGloria Cubana Maduro's I normally smoke. They were making me see things, so I had to switch. 8-[

I'll have to check that out WoodPuffer! I'm hooked on the SJ9's though.

And you thought the SJ-9 was expensive????? I've always looked at the Davidoff's and Cohiba's but haven't tried one yet. I have a hard enough time spending $10 a pop. Susan, buy two I'll come over and smoke with you! 8-[

If you like Davidoffs, try Diamond Crown. Very similar, unfortunately in price as well!

Susan, don't like Opus?????? I found them exquisite! Only thing better that does not come from Cuba is a Padron Anniversaire Exclusivo! Box pressed and packing a punch!!!!!

I think Fuente made Diamond Crown originally for West Coast release while they were releasing Opus in the east. It is a great looking medioum body cigar in some thick sizes. Susan, have you ever tried the more exotic Lars Tetans or Acid lines? These are the perfumed cigars. Woodafficionado

No, They are more like incense believe it or not! On the Opus, I remember the first one I was able to "find". It blew me away! Very spicy. Very well made. I hope they haven't screwed them up! The band is awsome regardless!
