@dancrago I smoked a few of these last summer. While I didn't have issues with metallic notes, I didn't find much redeeming.

@nyccigarlover I think having both functions would be great. Ultimately, there's a lot of things you could do with wireless humidification monitors, I fear much of the technology might not be economical. Adding the wireless function while still having everything operate on battery power is maybe just asking too much.
XIKAR is probably very close to the ceiling on how much they can charge for a hygrometer as I imagine the volume for this product is going to be limited.

@JackLinos Was kind of shocked it didn't get pointed out (more) in 2012.

@rhossick Bunching is almost certainly the cause. (The only other option is that the tobacco was processed that inconsistently, but that seems unlikely.) But as with anything—it's a combination of people who should have stopped it from happening and then being shipped.

@maxx @JamesHale Maxx, you have presented with me an interesting conundrum. I've watched multiple people smoke N.A.S. without the construction issues I encountered across all my samples. I also would tell you there is not a cigar that I've had more variance with than the Montecristo No.2.
A reader of TheCigarFeed once gifted me a Montecristo No.2 that was plugged out of its mind while we were tailgating. I didn't want to be rude, so I struggled through it. That was neither my first, nor last, plugged Montecristo No.2; and that's just the draw. I've had one that was sublime, many good, some average and then there's the list of reasons why I probably will never buy a box, ever. They are so inconsistent.
Picked to chose between the two, I have no clue what I would do. Neither are cigars that bring overwhelmingly positive experiences and I have never been a fan of playing cigar lottery.
I'll redux N.A.S. at the six month mark, probably one of the regular release ones and see if it's any better, I hope it is.
There is a reason why a cigar like the Cain F is not all 100 percent ligero. It's not that Oliva thinks we cannot handle it, it's just a monumental challenge to make just ligero burn well for that long.
If N.A.S. burns, I think people will eat it up. It's still a sub-$10 cigar and there's enough people that like to feel light-headed. Honestly, I give it one week until we hear about some guy trying to smoke it in under 10 minutes, just like the 35 minute Digger challenge.

@ clickbangdead I think it's just going to depend on the store. Some of the España Lancero stores had them for a few weeks.
