For my American friends, here is a recommendation for a non-cuban cigar that is made in the USA.
I've not tried the Westside 711 above but I have tried Nat Sherman's Metropolitan Maduro series and it's one of my favorite non-cubans (I have a box in my coolidor currently). Everyone who's tried it has had only good things to say about it.
"I drink a great deal. I sleep a little, and I smoke cigar after cigar. That is why I am in two-hundred-percent form." - Winston Churchill
