    Havana Whispers : The Rumour Mill

    Could be that they are discontinuing a packaging option. Have we ever seen a cigar with two different packaging types be completely discontinued in one fell swoop?

    RyJ Petit Royales?

    Thats what I thought, but the price listed here is pretty reasonable. cheaper than the Monte Media Corona, and a little under half the price of a RyJ Churchill, which makes sense since its the size of half a Churhill. I'm so used to complaining about the price point of new releases that I was taken off guard.
  3. So I hadn't been paying these any mind because pegged them as yet another overpriced petit robusto but then incredibly I saw them listed here at the int store with a price point somewhere between the HUHC and the Monte Media Corona. At that price they seem pretty reasonable (though not in stock unfortunately). Are these out in the wild yet? Are they any good? How do they profile?

    Heading to Hawaii on Fridaii

    Wow, I'm surprised you stuck it out. Hawaii isn't easy without family around.

    Heading to Hawaii on Fridaii

    @Islandboy said it more charitably than I could. At this point it sounds like refund or not you would have more fun just staying home and smoking on your porch. Vacations you don't enjoy aren't worth it, and Hawaii will never be cheaper than vacationing in a developing country for a host of reasons. At least if you stay home you can smoke freely and save on food expenses, even if the flight and condo are sunk costs. Less money, more fun and you can sleep in your own bed.

    Pretty much this. In Hawaii, all beaches are open to the public, and while smoking at any beach is illegal, enforcement outside of actual beach parks is nil. Just look for a sign like this that indicates beach access and chose a spot where you aren't likely to bug anyone. There should be one every half mile or less along the coast line, so plenty of choices.

    worst movie ever

    Star Wars Holiday Special, no question about it. The commentary from the MST3K guys had me dying for breath.
  8. I thought you would all being negative Nanci's until I tried to actually guess the price based on the price difference between a CoRo and a BHK52. Based on that, I'm guessing the Prez' pricing will probably look something like: $335 $425 $585
  9. The old release Illusione Singulare Phantom with about 5 years of age was as close to a Cohiba as I have ever had without being a Cohiba. This includes the Cuban custom rolls that are allegedly backdoor behikes. Age I think is the key. The pepper blast you get from a lot of Nicaraguans dies down after a few years and they start to seem more like fresh Cubans. If I'm looking for a cheap smoke at a US lounge, I always check to see if they have any old stock Don Pepin Black Labels laying around. With a bit of age they start to get a PSD4 vibe to them.
  10. You would think at some point they would release a regular production Petit Robusto, but no...

    Cuban Cigar Tobacco Weights

    Any guess on the margin of error on this list?
  12. It was a good year for the Connie 1 though

    Trinidad La Trova

    And 26mm shorter. The point is more that the Connie A has been a recent special release that has been regarded widely as worth the premium. With the spotty recent history if the Trinidad line, a consistent gem would be a win for everyone.

    Trinidad La Trova

    If that pricing holds these could be a bargain. Imagine if these end up be the 'Connie A' of Trinidads...
