Partagas 898: Most recent Box Code?


Recommended Posts

Last were a slew of '18 boxes and lots available on secondary.

For those holding 2018 boxes, how was the quality?  I know they're still again away, but from appearance, construction, bunching and wrappers looking to be typical 898 quality?

The three boxes I have all appear and smell great. I haven't smoked from any of them.

The flippers are going for 898s now? This is news to me. 

Yeah sounds like the usual slow production of lonsdales to me. Demand shifting.

If I can get them, are they worth the premium price?

Any answer to this is going to be very subjective. They are among my favorite cigars, but they aren't for everyone.

I wouldn't pay a significant premium for something I was unsure of.

I hope they reappear (as Rob and others seem to think they will).

Thanks...i guess I’ll be patient then.

Asked a friend, whom has a lot of connections, to find me the newest box he could dig up. He just sent me a box from LMB OCT 18. He said he cannot find anything newer than that (At least not being sold right now) since production has been down/slow.

I still have a few from UBM DIC 17, so I'm out. They sure are tasty tho! 

 

Agree...to both.

 

I have a friend going to Cuba in a couple weeks. I can ask him to keep his eyes open for them. 

Was there a couple weeks ago and there was bupkes, but a lot can change in a couple weeks

I have an April and July LMB box. The april has an incredible aroma, the july slightly less. I've smoked about 5 from the april box. They've ranged from very good to superb. The last few however didnt seem to have the super rich date flavor and were more dominated by dark chocolate. Maybe I'll light one up today?

Any updates to this?

I haven't seen a single box in American secondary/trading circles since Feb. 

That late 18 LMB run looks to still be the latest one-
