A few boxes have arrived. When I mean a few, less than 10. Reinforcements will be coming but a full allocation by HSA has not been received to my knowledge. From memory, these were rolled NOV/DIC 2014

The RA 898 will be a bargain by comparison

Eat faster.... Lol

Arrived this week at LCDH in Melbourne.

Going to crack it this afternoon / evening.

FYI they are $69 each, $1700 per box AUD. As a price comparison, La Casa in Melbourne has BHK 52's at $77 each.

Did you smoke it?

Ohh wow, quite reasonable in price. Not sure that i'd shell out for a box though...

Agreed, I thought they would be more. Similarly, I don't think I'd get a box, but like others here I'd be interested in sampling one!

Reasonable? $30+ a stick duty free?

I must have a very skewed definition of reasonable....

Well it's a good thing you guys don't live in Australia and pay Australian taxes or retail prices then i guess. Or London, or Canada.

As the poster said, the stick is cheaper than a BHK52.

69 S AU, = US$55 = €49, reasonable? That's nearly the price I paid for the Siglo VI Gran Reserva in France…

Australian prices are not directly comparable across exchange rates. Rather, the main consideration is the marca price and weight of the cigar in determining taxes (currently $AU587.62 per kilo). $AU69 might be closer to $US45.

Here is a rough guess bases on some price differences seen between $AU and $US on this site (taking taxes and exchange rate into account, and using larger sized cigars to take weight factor into account):

69 $AU -------> 29 $US

International pricing is being forwarded to me Monday/Tuesday by PCC. I will provide the info once received :ok:

PCC sets the prices? You don't set your own?

I guess the MSRP. I remember ERDM Aniversario was set at $399

Bushido, according Cigar Insider, $1090

For 25...so that's $US 43.60 a cigar...a little more than the price of the Cohiba Robusto Supremo EL 2014 ($US41).

There will be at least 25 more for all the enthusiasts chasing these to enjoy - as I won't be chasing any.

Which still doesn't make it reasonable by any means.

It is their cigar, not mine. PCC sets the price on all new Asia Pacific Regional releases and as a rule we (approved retailers) are to officially hold it for a period of time.

You don't play the game, you don't get supply.
