    This is motivated by my listening to old cigar podcasts and hearing of Cigars which I have smoked and enjoyed but haven’t seen in shops in a good long while.

    What first comes to mind is a Nicaraguan brand called Elogio. Liked them. Bought a box a few years ago but hadn’t seen them in a few years now.

    What are some brands/lines that you miss?

    Don Lino Africa Kifaro---before they turned to crap they were like a big juicy beefsteak of a cigar.

    Escencia Corona Gorda---hit all the right notes then disappeared forever.

    Royal Jamaican any vitola. Winston Churchill smoked them between H. Upmans. Made with real Jamaican tobacco and Cameroon wrappers. Haven't been any since hurricane Gilbert did in the Jamaican tobacco industry in 1988

    Lots of great ones listed here.

    For me, it is the Berger & Argenti Entubars, original Cabaiguan Guapos, and Camacho 10 Year Anniversary.
