Still find these topics on HSA's sales tactics to be really confusing.       If Macallan whisky decide to slap a 'super duper rare' sticker on bottle of 20yr old Whisky and it sells for 100's of 1000s

Wow, record sales with 40% production. This will be studied in business schools for centuries.

Well that’s a relief ! Here I was thinking they had shortages and supply issues. I’m glad to read the Vietnamese news service is reporting there is nothing to see here and that everything is fine.   I’ll stop looking up too 😀

Ah yes, the Vietnam News Agency Correspondent in Havana, the most trustworthy news source.

Sales as a percentage of production, is probably pretty high though 🤣

Ok, now i'm confused. The Cohiba pictured in the article doesn't have "premier" written on the band. Can't believe that's a fake too.

Agreed--hopefully some folks can visit their local outlets and figure this out for us.

Soaring Cigar Sales? So that explains why the duty free section of both Doha (Qatar) and Athens Airport were 100% completely empty of any Habanos product on my flight to Greece at the beginning of the month! 😆

Only the 5-boxes released by Phoenicia have the "premier". I don't believe the 2-pack sets given out at the launches have it nor will the actual HSA releases.

Well, if you sold the exact same quantity last year as you did the year previous, but increased the price by 15%, then technically you have increased $ sales. So HSA may not be lying this time! :rotfl:

You got to be at the Duty Free on the right hour or it's all gone.  Mr. Rich Guy from China buys the whole duty free in a single purchase.

To clarify.  I personally think its all bullshit. 

I feel sorry for the farmers, the workers,  I feel sorry for distributors getting squeezed by prices, and I think the fake bullshit based on rarity, demeans everyone that gets involved in it. 

But can we please get a bit of perspective.    HSA are involving themselves in pathetic, greedy, shortsighted sales techniques largely developed by luxury goods brands in the 1st world.      is it as craven and laughable yes! does it alienate their market yes.............did they invent it........no

I agree with your point 100%. It’s not the strategy that’s bullshit, it’s the hypocrisy of the Cuban regime that’s bullshit. Anti capitalist until the need capitalism to bail them out.
