@RussellHarris That's on me. Brooks had it right before editing, I reworked a sentence or two up top for some other things and made the error. Thanks for catching it.

@SethsHumidor @Charlie Minato Not bad ideas, I just don't see what's wrong with the current idea. Also, the whole feedback thing is exactly what My Father did with the first release of the Jaime Garcia LE 2011.

@Mike @AronL Just a quick heads up. The @kaizadsosa user violated our rules for using multiple usernames. Those comments have been deleted, I deleted the responding comments as they didn't really make sense without the ones from the violating user.

@SharingSmoke The second portion of your comment was edited out for sensitivity reasons. Rape jokes are a bit too much.

@SethsHumidor Yes. What's the point? It's the exact same concept used by My Father, so if you aren't saying they can't use the idea, what are you getting at?

@dpike @samschica Well this wasn't a press release converted to a story, we actually did some work here, but the reviews will continue, hopefully with consistency. Lots of moving pieces in the month of May staff-wise.

@MightBeWrong First and foremost, I trust my source enough to put it up here. While there seems to be a tad bit of difference, it's unclear if the picture is to blame or something else. I compared it to some other ELs I had from a different source from that time period and nothing was different. In addition, while CubanCigarWebsite is great, their pictures oftentimes look off from other sources, including Habanos themselves. We ran into this with the Behike.

@AgedHavana No. It didn't definitely cite a "press release" by name. Totally didn't do that.

@njstone I guess I didn't really answer that question well. The regular production versions retain some of the sweetness that the REDUXes had fresh, but they definitely don't share the complexity, at least now.

For those wondering about the MSRP, this was a review of a pre-2011 Don Carlos Lancero, hence the band. The pricing in the Don Carlos Lancero a la 13 release was less, but as for this release, the above MSRP is correct.

@kas From the Final Notes: You may be confused by the score, the tasting notes and my comments. The tasting notes are based off of cigars that displayed no harshness, the score is based off of the samples smoked in the past week, which were all not without harshness. My comments about where I like this compared to the rest of the line also assume a lack of harshness.

@Adam Cliett I'm with you, I don't understand why manufacturers keep putting Petit Coronas in the 50 ct cabinets. While I love the way they look, even with the Illusione *R* Rothchildes, the price of admission is still a bit high.

@JackLinos @scottghost @leafLover2 @Adam Cliett I've said before that I find a lot of the gang mentality about Gurkha excessive, and I honestly believe that many that partake in it, haven't smoked any products from the company.
As for the rules, we have them posted here.
We've left comments like this up before and while I find this excessive, there's a censorship line we don't want to make a habit of walking.

@imbenowens It's definitely not the best use of the MTX Multi-Tool, but after messing up one of the XIKAR's, I've learned how to use it correctly. lol.
