@dancrago  That may not be exactly true. From what I recall, Espinosa actually had a bit of packaging leftover from the My Father days when he started 601 at La Zona.


As far as I'm concerned, the cigars are smoking better today than the ones that were shipping in 2011.

@SethsHumidor  Client relationships are awkward. If we didn't believe it was true, than it would not be on the website.

@Komodota  This is the "ghost cigar." I cannot stress this enough, but these weren't limited, I'm not sure when the last time Tatuaje made them, but it was far far later than 2007. This is also a Cabaiguan Maduro lancero.

@ clickbangdead  I smoke as slow as anyone. As with the España Ninfa, I definitely had issues keeping the Ninfamaniac lit. It's not that ti gets overly hot and I slow down, for whatever reason both cigars occasionally and surprisingly go out at various points.

@Tyler A  I don't know what Brooks' thoughts are on it, but we do have some bit of a predicament when it comes to reduxes as a whole.

We will likely do a total of 325ish reviews, including about 50 reduxes, this year. What that means is each reviewer only has 13 reduxes per year, because we split those up evenly amongst the site's four writers. Brooks will inevitably review 75+ cigars, 13 will be reduxes, but the other 62 will be regular reviews of cigars that might be eligible for redux.

Even before you factor in all of the cigars from years before that could be reduxed, the chances of Brooks even getting to what he does this year is roughly one in five, assuming he doesn't review anything from a prior year.

We are in discussion of adding a second redux to help deal with this, but that won't be until next year at the earliest.

The answer to the standardized test question is B.

@Tyler A @sirpantsornot1  It's been updated and this is on me. 

I didn't have a band in front of me when editing and I figured what Brooks was referring to was a symbol given the fact he wrote "stands for peace" and not "translates to 'peace.'" or some variation of that.

My apologies to anyone that offended.

@DavidHolmes1  Honestly, it doesn't seem like that much more of late, particularly compared to the last few years, maybe just a bit more attention. I'm not sure if it was the case here, but there are definitely some companies that are trying to release products with some ridiculous launch times.
