I prefer flavored stogies. Discovered the "Groovy Blue" at an Alabama cigar bar, and can't rate them high enough! The flavor actually lasts through the entire smoke- not just the first couple of puffs. (They'll also make your humidor smell awesome.) While the Rum is not as "pungent" taste-wise, still a very mild smoke with no aftertaste. First time dealing with Tobacco Stock, and very pleased- super-quick shipping, and best prices around. I'll be back!
