This cigar is the Edición Limitada cigar, meaning that it is produced in limited numbers for certain period of time unlike the regular productions. The wood, honey, coffee, cedar and bitter chocolate are being pronounced at first, then followed by almond, earth, caramel, leather, pepper, spice. tobacco and vanilla notes with some complexity throughout the end. I expected this cigar to be something special as it is limited edition cigar but being utterly let down by its tight draw, fireproof wrapper and generic flavour profile. Such a disappointing cigar and I can see why there are many cigar aficionados prefer reliable regular productions over uncertain pricey limited editions. -Mr. Knight Brand: Partagás Size: 52 x 138 (Robusto Extra) Country: Cuba Box Code: N/A Price: N/A Score: 86
To say I am looking forward to this cigar would be an understatement. My favorite Marca and a great size to boot. I know the "Monte 80th" fever is in full pitch right now, but has anybody heard anything about this cigar since it was announced? I wouldn't be surprised if this cigar never showed, or if it does, in very low quantities. Considering the yearlong+ delay for the "2015" Monte 80th and the majority of folks who tasted both stating that the current release cigars are very different in flavor than the pre release cigars. I'm not sure where the Tobacco for the 16's is going to come from. The wrapper leaves are just about the same size (165mm vs 167mm) and they clearly had issues getting enough together for the 80ths. Maybe I am just being pessimistic, if I prepare myself for the worst case I can only be happily surprised if they are released. Right? Best case scenario they release them on the island early November to coincide with my trip.
I found this picture on social media. The counterfeiters appear to have really high quality (if not authentic) Cohiba and the Edicion Limitada bands. However they overlooked the fact that Cohiba EL in 2014 was the Robustos Supremos, the Piramides format was last offered in 2006 and both came in 10 count boxes. I tried to tell the owner that these were fakes and he replied that he had purchased them at a Mexican LCDH. Which could explain what appears to be authentic bands, but opens up a whole other ugly can of worms. I have heard rumors of fakes at LCDH's but has anyone actually stumbled across any or is it just cigar forum urban legend?
