It really is a beautiful presentation. Juan Lopez Seleccion Especial


Recommended Posts

Beautiful for sure but I still prefer the plain old wooden boxes. They stack easier, probably cost a lot less and I only need one fancy pencil holder. I end up throwing them out anyway when empty. But I can understand for marketing and profit reasons why HSA choose to package their premium products this way. But personally I don't care for it.

 

I wonder what is the extra cost, compared to it being packaged in a plain wooden box, when selling for the retail customer? 50-100 USD?

Does that say 52 X 170?  Wowsers!  That could be an ass kicker. Bet they cost plenty. Beautiful looking cigars and packaging.

I am going to flip this on its lid ;)

 

i want then to make two presentations for each premium cigar in their portfolio.

  • One upmarket such as this.
  • One normal boxing be it timber or dress.
  • I would like them to sell those in empty form.  

I then want them to do bundles(ala Nudies) for refilling. 

It would be an absolute boom in plain packaging markets. 

Great idea, I like it.

At this point in my cigar smoking journey, I'd wager HSA is not marketing towards the regular customer much; seems the casual, special occasion smoker or the very rich, detached from value/cost consideration are the target public nowadays, What Rob is proposing, while reasonable and enticing to me, is never going to happen. I have been wrong before....

That box is my new "smoke now" humidor with whatever im storing to smoke next. It is certainly an awesome box. The spew colour velvet bag is a bit strange though. 🤣

They look nice but if that is really the size I will stick with the No1 and 2!

I smoked the first of the two that I bought to try this morning.

We are away in Tenerife on holiday and I have fallen into the routine of eating breakfast and then having a smoke. Today it was the turn of the Especial.

Dry draw had a hint of gingerbread to it. Started out reasonably mild, typical Juan Lopez.

Flavour and strength really built up into the final third. At this point I admitted to myself it might not be an after breakfast cigar.

A fantastic 90 minute cigar. Solid 94 in my view. Definitely need to find a box now.

Thanks for sharing JL Especial experience @RichUK! Along with RA, JL is one of my fav CC marcas so I'm really excited to puff JL Especial as a huge fan of long CCs 😃.
