1 cigar back from life support, 1 back from the dead

Recommended Posts

If a magic genie could sprinkle a little dust and poof **!!** you had 1 cigar previously on life support (haven't seen it in a few years) 

+ 1 cigar that has been given the axe by HSA.

Mine would be an LGC No. 2 and a Sancho Panza Sanchos

LGC No. 2 and Sancho Panza Bachilleres

 

I've got a box of late 90s Bachilleres. Maybe have to try them again, but I wasn't a huge fan. They were good....but not something I'd buy another box of.

Always wanted to try the old stuff, even when it wasn’t that old.

Are regionals considered dead?

1.)  Except for the SLRDC, and this is completely counter to my belief about cigars, but I would like to see BHK come back to a price, blend, and availability in which it would make sense to pick up a few boxes to actually smoke!  

....No wait I came to my senses at the end of that run-on.  Screw the BHK bring back around the SLRDC, so I could get just one more Cab to put away for 20 years.  

2.)  TAINOS—Bring back LGC and ERDM.  Please.  How many Julieta 2s are left?  3?  Reeeeeeefrickindiculous.

I think of all the MIA cigars you're going to get the MdO2 most missed. Although Hoyo DD and SLR DC has a lot of love.

As far as reviving a dead cigar, I'd have to go with BCG. The last batch were simply tremendous 95+ point cigars. Talk about going out on top. 

I guess all-time, I really miss BCE.

In fact, technically, I think there isn't a difference. Gone.

Seeing the Des Dieux again is as likely as the SS1.

Would agree with this.  Still being listed in the standard catalogue means little.   Ultimately they will push at the door of the least resistance. Why put in a ton of work blending to a specific framework, and having to live up to the history, when you can create a box of ten random jaw breakers that flippers will buy irrespective.

I'm gonna be that guy and be different.

SLR A - not officially gone, I've most recently have seen them from 2013.  Fabulous smoke

Trini Robusto Extra - my personal favorite and dearly missed.  Have a few 07s left then that's it.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but some of these releases aren't on life support, theyre just plain old discountinued. A number of years ago the Hamburglar had released a list of discoed stuff but considering the source, nobody wanted to believe it. But this coming spring will mark 5 years without forum favorites like LGC MdO 2, HdM DD or SLR A.

BCG - even though I usually don’t have the time to smoke longer cigars

HUPC - all the ones I’ve smoked have been very nice. My supply is enjoyed sparingly.

HU Petit Upmann handmade - I’m curious about why JFK was such a big fan of these
