Looking forward to this! The Viaje love/hate thing was amusing for a while, now it's just old. Smoke what you like. I like the Exclusivo blend.

Thanks for this review on a cigar I'll never smoke, but have been curious about! I love the Trinidad profile, and the first Cuban I ever had that made me say, "Ahh, now I get it!" was a 5-yr-old Coloniales.

The original Black cg was $13, now several years later with all the increases in labor and tobacco costs, taxes, etc ... and now they are only $10? AWESOME!!!

Nice review! I haven't had one of these, but the Platino Lancero is still one of my favorite Viajes!

Kudos to both parties. This is the way things should be resolved!!

If CI keeps the current manufacturing and blends intact, I don't see too much of a problem. If they simply put these labels that they now own on cigars with different tobaccos manufactured elsewhere ... that's sad.

Again, why not just raise the age for CIGARETTES, why add cigars into the mix?
Also, there should be (if not already) a clause in the laws that states that cigars could be used with the supervision of a parent or guardian (like alcohol is now). It should be a parent's choice whether or not to allow their teenager a glass of wine now and then, or a birthday cigar, etc.

Wow, surprising review! I personally love the '26 line, even prefer it to the '64. The #1, #9, and #35 are all favorite cigars of mine. I think I'm going to have to try to find a couple of these and give them a try, but a box is out of the question with these kind of prices.

Nice review! Love me some lanceros!

Great review! To my tastes, the No. 2 has really improved over the last year, and is a cigar a really love (so sad they were limited). I plan to get a box of No. 5, but will likely rest them a while before diving in.

Great idea, great story, I hope this is a great success.
Also, I have to give it up for the Garcias for always showing love to the lancero! Thanks for keeping my favorite vitola alive!

That might be cool, but it's also double the work (coming up with a 2nd blend). There are only so many ideas that can exist when it comes to packaging cigars. I personally thought Jaime's idea was excellent, and would like to see that sort of thing happen a lot (with props to Jaime, of course).

MN sucks, lol. This is a tough one. For pricey stuff, it will actually reduce costs ... making Limited Release parties and such at shops much more inviting, that that's VERY good for the shops! A Feral Flying Pig might go down close to $2/stick under this new scheme, which is great.
But for "everyday" cigars, Minnesotans are SOL. Either drive across the boarder, or (while it lasts) order from out of state.

Don Dion is a Master! I appreciate his cigars more and more as I continue on my cigar journey. I also respect that he focuses on excellent and consistent products, as opposed to flash and 30 new releases a year. If you put out 1 or 2 new cigars a year and they are awesome, then that's a huge success!!

The old white label sun grown was a solid stick. I'll give this one a try as well.

LOVE the '12. Looking forward to trying both of these.
