Thanks for the info Rob! IMO most of these sound just as dull as always when it comes to new releases/RE/LE.

Except for one thing:

Rafael Gonzalez Marquez: Perlas 40 x 102 mm in boxes of 25’s and carton packs of 5’s, displays of 25’s. Now that is a seriously good release. :ok:

:clap:

Lisa! Sign me up for two boxes to start with!

RG Perlas sound like a great idea, as do c&c Quintero Robustos. But before I get excited I just want to see this years le's and new releases, I really want the RA Allones Extras and the Upmann Half Coronas.

Still waiting on La Escepcion Italian RE. Accepting no substitutes

Say What??? Seriously, I didnt see these. It had to be Italy though didnt it, damnit. Hands down my favorite cigar smoked to date was an 86 La Escepcion Longos.
