Lafayette Reynolds cigar aficionado

In True Blood Season 3 Episode 5 Lafayatte share a cigar with Tommy Mickens and he also shares his choices for a "good cigar"

They smoke a Macanudo Ascot, both brands cost about $20 bucks for a tin if 10 cogars but there are Ascot Gold's which run $100 for a tin of ten.
Lafayette says his favorite brand is Schimmelpenninck  Panatella

Macanudo use to be the #1 selling cigar in the United States.  However, over the last few years, a lot of Macanudo smokers have switched to more popular cigar makers like Rocky Patel and to better value brands like our Corona Dominican Selection cigars. Macanudo cigars are hand made in the Dominican Republic withcarefully chosen filler tobaccos from Jamaica and the Dominican Republic, the binder is from Mexico and the cafe wrapper is a twice aged Connecticut shade-grown leaf or a sun ripened Maduro. This blend creates a smooth, mellow taste that is consistent year after year

Schimmelpenninck Duet Panatellas, Cigarillos and Media cigars were created for those who enjoy a mild taste. Machine-made in the Netherlands from dry-cured imported tobaccos, Schimmelpenninck cigars are named for a famous governer of Holland, Rutger Jan Schimmelpenninck. These cigars mostly feature Sumatra sandleaf wrappers and a java binder, combined with filler tobaccos from Brazil and Indonesia.
