The WCD 120 Redux was a fantastic cigar.  Hopefully these are just as good.  This was the perfect size for that blend.

Glad to see these still have some legs on them.  I have one in the humi that I won't be getting to for awhile.  Thanks for the review!

Interesting that the ring gauges are all bigger.  As much as I prefer thinner RGs those don't seem to be making any money for Habanos SA.

@Patrick Lagreid @Trent0341 4x4 bundle maybe? Kind of like the JLP bundles. I'm assuming these will be low end.

It also shows the reinstatement of the Vegueros brand with three new vitiolas although I doubt theres as much excitement about that.

@StormBoen Your confusing the Halfwheel awards and the Consensus awards.  Halfwheel named the DE factory as their number one while the consensus awards had the MF factory as number 1.

Probably the best list out there since it is a consensus.  I think I would take CCs out of it altogether though.  IMHO why include them if they are vastly under represented with a lot of list not even reviewing them at all?  

Regardless it is your list and I appreciate the immense amount of work you put into it, the transparency of the process, and the downloadable spreadsheet.  Great work and thanks again!

Great review.  I have one of the Montes sitting in my humidor which is probably as close as I'll ever get to this.  I'll snatch a couple up if I ever have the chance.

Great review... I had an issue with a resin/sap in a humidor I have.  Talked to Bob Staebell about it and he said that occasionally the cedar will release a resin so I'd say you are right about where it came from.

I wasn't very clear in my first post but I'm more referring to the fact that these come in (what appears to be) a dress/cardboard box for a $15 dollar cigar. I'm personally not really a fan of the band either but that's just my opinion. The box just looks cheap to me considering the price point. Of course as I'm sure someone will point out you smoke the cigar not the box.

Big fan of what Quesada (SAG Imports) has been doing lately.  I just wish they had some smaller ring gauges in this line up.

California is a confusing state.  They'll do everything they can to make marijuana legal but then battle to take away single cigar sales and argue that this is what they're using to smoke marijuana.  I'm surprised they didn't argue this was unfair/discriminatory to the poor.  

 

bootblackblast,

I don't have twitter so I'll respond here.  The problem is not so much the loss of cheap cigars at gas stations but the erosion of your rights.  I have no desire to smoke flavor cigars but I strongly believe that it's not my right to decide what others should do.  If we don't fight this gradual erosion of our rights you're going to find you'll eventually lose it all.
