None of the Nudes we have ever done have had Cuban tobacco. We have said it adnauseum but it still doesn't get through. We put it on the label clearly this time around. It still won't get through 

Unfortunatley logistics won't make that work at the price point. We may have a few more options down the line.       

Glass top box of ten, with them arranged one maduro, one colorado, one maduro etc is my preferrred packaging. Goes well with the branding aswell... nothing says nudes like looking through a glass wind

Then they can purchase more 25 packs of what they like down-the-track, at a late date.

Will there be enough to hold more than 1 sale? 

The way the '19s are smoking, I'm just gonna trust the flow and drop in on 50 of each option available!

I had planned to have enough for a month.

I would try one again. The original Carlota's have evolved into the superior cigar (from me at least). They have certainly evolved. 

This years release is a touch sweeter. One shade sweeter.  Still, we did not want to lose that touch of subtle bite at least not in the first 12 months. 

We blend cigars to suit our tastes. If we smoke them (and we do almost daily) then we know 60% of you will love them. 

Funny story...I gave away the Carlota's I bought because I wasn't a fan at the time. I now regret it. I guess I'll be picking up the lanceros as I thoroughly enjoyed the last batch..

Sydney boys will be going deep again on the orders!

Just tell Ben, "Yes, the order is correct, he does want that much. Fuzz is certifiable, but his money is good." :lol3: The last time we ordered, he asked me if we were serious! 😅

My apologies for being totally ignorant, but will these be cuban tobacco or is it a dominican or nicaraguan thing?

Non-Cuban tobacco but no ligero leaf used. It's a reason why it's lauded by members as being 'cubanesque'.

Backstory

Going back four years, we tried to see how close we could get to the Cuban discontinued Partagas Serie De Connoisseur Number 1/2/3/ line in terms of profile using NC tobacco (it is a blend, not a puro). 

Why? before its discontinuation the Connie 3 was in my personal top 5 rotation. I loved that cigar. I found the Connie 3 Carlota to be my go to cigar and HSA took it away. Bugger them, I roped in Hamlet and we blended our own replacement. It's a cracker if you enjoyed the Connie 3 or a young PLPC, Mag 46.  Both Hamlet and I smoke them at least every other day. They have become that missing link in my top 5 rotation.  All credit goes to Hamlet on that one. He can make Mangoes from rocks. 

The Lancero (N1) was needed because HSA has largely abandoned the Long skinny market unless you want to sell a kidney. Good luck finding them even then. 

In our walk in B&M, the Nudie Lancero comes in at number 6 in the top cigars sold by volume.   The deck crowd love them and they come in at a decent price, delivers every bloody time and  at a fair price even with our stupid taxes. It has received rave reviews in most quarters for the simple reason it is fricken good. 

We want to do cigars that we love to smoke. Nothing more nothing less. I will take tobacco from mars if it makes what we do 5% better ;)

Thank you squire, and sorry to have to make you repeat yourself. I did see the label, but because everything on this site is almost exclusively Cuban focused, I wasn't certain if it was a joke or not. 

I apologise for my thick head and thank you for the history. No stress I quite enjoy some NC's as well. If they discontinued Hoyo DCs I'd be looking for that sweet cinnamon flavour under every rock and tree. 

I'll have to come check out the B&M post covid never knew it was there.

Rob, if you had to compare the N1’s flavor to a current/discontinued vitola would it be the same as the Carlotta?

If I remember from the last batch, these are dispatched from somewhere in Europe, not Oz, correct?

Personally I'd prefer a mix of 1 and 3 in Rosado but I'll settle for a bundle of each if I must 😁

@Elpresidente, are the Lanceros blended to have the same flavor profile as the Carlotta? 

No. Blended to be a touch more elegant. To me that is what a lancero should be.

Carlota is.my daily workhorse, my cattle dog/blue heeler, faithful  companion.

I just want to say I love the original N1 Lancero and look forward to this year's release!

 

If only one packaging option is feasible, I'd prefer no mixed packaging. If people want to try both, buy both
