I had a couple from my  nearby B&M shortly after buying them, and they were quite good.  I think there is a lot of potential for aging there.  Time will tell.


I bought a 4-pack from (I think) SMALL BATCH CIGARS, and had severe problems with keeping the first 3 lit.  Had to light each 5-6 times.  I dryboxed the third one for a couple days, with the same result as the first two.  Any ideas?  I have one left.


It's not my humidification, because ones I've had in there for some time don't have any issues.  The last of the La Herencia de Cuba COREs smoked just fine.


It seems the LAS CALAVERAS may have been too damp.  How long should such things be dryboxed?  I'm pretty upset, as you might imagine!

@LouCiccone They're probably only being sold at select B&M accounts,  and a few online retailers.  Your best bet is a good old-fashioned web search.  Don't put it off, as I think these will only be sold once a year, and when this year's production is gone, that's all she wrote, until next year.


These will supposedly be a different blend each year, like some Tatuaje releases.


Best of luck

I'm uncertain as to what "neutral powdered cocoa" connotes, and "the predictable nature of the Tatuaje Tattoo is not so memorable." is just plain gobbledygook, Charlie.  You predicted it before ever trying it?  If it doesn't mean that, what DOES it mean? 


Sorry, I haven't had the cigar, but I read the review, and you can do a hell of a lot better than that.

@Charlie Minato @TriMarkC I recall that grapefruit note being quite prominent in a La Sirena I grabbed out of the $6 box at my B&M.  It was the only one.  (Sometimes the suggested priced isn't much above $6, sometimes it is).  I've been wanting another LS ever since - for breakfast!


Last night, lighting up a Liga Privada T52, I got this definitive raspberry note, just going into the finish, very briefly.  For about 3-4 draws, and then it was gone like the morning dew.  That's a note I'd never encountered anywhere else.

Why no mention of the J.D. Howard Reserve?  The rest of the stable were included.

 @celtwarrior SECEDE FROM WHAT?  Our states only exist virtually, and we don't even have a country anymore - just a plutocratic morass.  But we're still here. TIme to move on to the next level.
