Partagas 898: Most recent Box Code?

Recommended Posts

I like to think of all the Party 898s in cigar shops across the land that are just sitting there with no one knowing how rare and delicious they are

Gonna guess that 2019 898 production was exclusively Punch 898 so far...

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.

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

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.

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).

Lol. Maybe that’s why there is no Choix to be seen. Think I just bought 300 10ct box of long Choix ... I mean Tainos.

LMB Jul 18, it's my last box, plan on keeping it until they are available again or 5 yrs, whichever comes first.

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 am assuming no one saw new production in havana these past few weeks?

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

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?
