I too am a fan of a good stogie and a fine glass of single malt scotch. +1 on the CAO MX2, great stick. one of my favorites is the Punch "rare corojo" in the rothschild (little robusto) . Baccarat's are pretty good also. I haven't ran into many CAO's that I didn't like (besides the Italia), An underated stick in my opinion is the Hoya de Nicaragua, or Padron. as for Bourbon, I'll take a glass of Bullet anyday (and twice on Sunday). Got a few Cuban's in my humidor as well, but the supply is dwindling since I got out of the military. Some of my friends have recently turned me on to some of the Ghurkha's and they're not a bad stick either. Anyway, good to see some folks who like to burn some fine tobacco with their powder on here.
