The Miami P1 and P2 are (http://www.tatuajecigars.com/sizes.html), but the Nicaraguan variety are very much alive.

i'll admit to be a little homo here and actually enjoying a bundle of #18's once upon a time.  belindas?  what was i thinking?  oh the times they have a changed. Tongue

I wont pick up a bundle unless im about 99% sure that I will like it. that being said, one of the local B&M's has a few house blends that (i think) are phenominal for the price. One of them (to me) tastes just like a CAO gold, and another that will rival an AVO for flavor and construction (it should, as it is rolled by them, or so they say). I also get some of the Flor de Oliva's but have had some issues with construction and burn on them. ( had a wrapper come completely off on one). I consider myself in constant search for that perfect smoke at a price point that I can afford, so that typically means searching for discounts, bundles, and of course outright begging at times.

I bought a bundle of Flor De Oliva's. Not bad but they have lost their appeal for me. I smoked one today at lunch. Still not a bad smoke but you can pick up better for cheap if you keep yer eyes open.

I just ordered some Onyx reserve for $50 bucks for a 20 box. Box of 25 punch elites (5.5 x 44) for $42.

I have thought about the Benchmades by Ashton which are cheap and also the Davidoff bundles. I've had the 4x4's and they are not bad.

Two B&Ms that I frequent also suggested Benchmades. They were really good and the price was excellent.
