  1. Are they willing to add a Boveda pack to the package before re-shiping them? If so, they should be right when they get back to you.
  2. Online prices for Partagas 898 have gone up recently as high as $300 or more. At $225 in Cuba, I would consider the 898. Also, as mentioned, any Trinidad are a good buy in Cuba. I would also add La Gloria Cubana if you can find them.
  3. Bit off topic, but... Hananos SA Website: "They are made with filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone." Cuban Cigar Website: "The range consists of full strength cigars, using a blend of tobaccos from the Vuelta Abajo and the Semi Vuelta regions." Can anyone confirm or deny whether tobacco from Semi Vuelta is used in SLR? To answer original post, I have tried and very much liked the Serie A. Sent from my SGH-I337M using Tapatalk

  6. I'm surprised no one has mentioned psychoactive medicine. One does not overthink the cigar but rather becomes one with the cigar. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. This. Thanks to FoH for facilitating!
  8. It's the cost of Coloniales
  9. I feel like Eagle Rare should get a mention here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. According to the theory, we do not expect to see LUB in 2012 because it's from tobacco grown, cured, aged and ready to roll in 2013. I haven't seen any 2012 or earlier LUB. I haven't seen any 2014 UPE, probably because it was all rolled by the end of 2013, but that doesn't mean it's not possible. An interesting point can be made with the AME box code, which we see in '12, '13' and '14. According to the theory, the tobacco for the AME box code/growing season was sufficient to roll enough cigars spanning over 3 calendar years. As Hutch says above, we can expect to see some exceptions, but generally new box codes appear in May. It makes sense to me.
  12. What about "Opulent"?
  13. I believe that factory codes change with each tobacco growing season. From what I understand harvesting begins in November and runs until April. Then curing lasts 40-60 days followed by 5-6 months of aging. So, the first bales from a tobacco growing season will arrive at the factory in May/June. From what I can tell the earliest new box codes are MAY. The tobacco rolled from the same growing season would keep the same box code until done. That's why we see box codes rolling into the new year and even past into late in the year. (And, in some cases, even longer). This also explains why we see two box codes from the same factory. For example UPE MAY 13 and LUB MAY 13. UPE being the last tobacco from the previous growing season and LUB being the earliest tobacco from the current growing season. This only addresses the first part of your question, but there you go. NOTE: This is just a theory I have, so if someone knows better please chime in. Thx, Rob Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. On CCW it's listed as a Marevas. I guess we have to follow the Habanos SA listing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
