    I haven't counted. But how does one navigate all these brands!?

    I think I may finally have this CAD under control...

    I was having similar thoughts browsing a NC shop yesterday. All these brands can also have loads of different lines which are very different blends and flavours so the choice is huge.

    I spend hours browsing, always buy singles and rarely get the same cigars twice.

    This is why I like NC's; you never know what you're going to get. With Cubans you usually have an idea what the flavour profile will be based on the brand.

    That's like going to a friends house and finding it full of strangers...

    Isn't that called a party?

    Oh I'm with you on hating parties, it's definitely not like a party; I see it more like being a kid in the sweets section of woolworths in the 90s.

    I wonder how they manage all these blends, the majority of the cigars are made in 3-5 factories .

    Ha. The pic'n'mix. Do they have a broken cigars section, like they did for biscuits? Fill a bag with sticks, five Bob.

    Haha, never saw that; I never ventured into the biscuit section.

    There used to be a certain cuban vendor who did a random seconds pack of sticks which had various wrapper damage. They were a serious bargain if you were handy with cigar glue and wrapper repair. Used to get Siglo 6's, Coros, all sorts. Most just had cracked feet, but all were repairable.
