What Is On Your Radar Right Now?

I am just curious as to what my fellow BOTL are interested in at the moment.  Many of us smoked better sticks over the holidays, may have been given something new from your Secret Santa or a Cigar Pass, or just picked up a new fiver to sample.  What is something different that you are contemplating on an upcoming box purchase?  This is not your favorite stick(s) or something from your normal rotation.  This would be something new that you are considering on adding to your rotation.  Just interested in what the rest of you are smoking, and looking for suggestions for new fivers I should sample for box purchase consideration for the future.
 
Here are a couple I am considering:
 
Jericho Hill Willy Lee.  jsm11 put these on my radar last fall, and I have just recently tried these.  Really pleased with the smoke.
 
Padron 1964 Anniversary Maduro.  I have liked and smoked these for years and smoked them as a special occasion stick.  I find myself finding more and more occasions as "special occasions".  LOL!  I do not think that buying these as fivers will suffice when the weather turns warm again.
 
Tatuaje Reserva.  I have only sampled the the 7th and Cojonu 2012 but like these for something different in my stash.  Variety is a good thing.
 
Thanks.

Shorter smokes in general, Habanos minutos/petite coronas in particular.  I'm finding larger smokes taking up too much time as family time & obligations increase, and I'm well stocked with robustos, corona gordas, belis/torpedoes, etc... plus Habanos' shorter formats are smoking excellently lately.  For the price, you can't beat them.

Any specific brands or sticks?

Partigas Shorts or Bolivar Corona Junior are my 2 favorites.

Outside of my normal rotation, I'm looking to pick up some JD Howard's by Crowned Heads. They're one of the few NC's that I'll smoke.

I've also resolved that I'm going to foray into the deep end soon and see for myself what all this Opus X stuff is on about.  Though I was on an easy listening kick for a while, my preferences have swung back up towards M-F as far as strength and flavor go.  The Opus will be testing those outer limits of head and stomach, I'm sure.   I didn't want to drop that sort of coin before now because I really didn't think I had the cigar experience to fully appreciate that sort of stick (or be able to legitimately compare it to others I've had and decide that it is simply not for me).

If you'd like an ass kicker with full flavor, which is actually quite legit... Norteno' is among my favorites at the moment...

I hate to sound spoiled, but I've smoked a ton of cigars of the last year (first year I've really committed to smoking other than occasionally) and I'm settling into what I really like.  I've tried from various manufacturers, blends, vitolas all year in an effort to establish what I really like.
 
On my Radar right now, I'll be buying at least 5er's of, maybe boxes:
Four Kicks - Piramide
Headley Grange
JD Howard Reserve
Padron 6000 Maduro
Norteno'
Illusione Annunaki 
 
NC =
H. Upmann No.2
Trinidad Vigia'
Vagueros Tapados
Romeo y Julietta Wide Churchill
 
What I'll really be out to do is find more cheap sticks $5 that fit the bill... I can't keep burning $10 sticks regularly...
 
This year I discovered the Tatuaje P Series, mixed filler, but awesome flavor IMO... and well, well under $5.  My old standy is the CAO Brazilia, I still love them...

I don't think DE has made a "traditional" cigar that I didn't like.  I haven't had a Norteño, but I'll definitely look into them.  I don't make it a habit to intentionally go for stuff that makes me want to pray to the porcelain gods, but I think I have now figured out how to enjoy a stick yet recognize when to put it down before that line is irrevocably crossed.  Thanks.

When the weather turns nice I'm going to grab some Illusione Rothchildes. Seems to be a lot of good talk about them on here and I'm curious to see how they are.

Weather around here as been so amazingly nice, I've been buying larger smokes in general, anticipating some great time out on the patio in the sun.... :thumbs:

You are kidding right?  Good weather?  Throwing that in the faces of all of us stuck in the 20's with snow sleet and ice.  Thanks for the pick me up.  :laugh:  I am still stuck in the short cigar territory.  I for one am happy for you.
 
HUHC and Asylum 4x44. 
 
Things are looking up a bit though and the bigger smokes are coming, can't wait.
