Just snagged a couple tenskis of the Toro off FF here for 32.67/ea...
Pretty good..

Compared to what they typically go for? I’m happy...........(although I did see a fiver go for 15.......just once.......a while back.)
These have a profile I really enjoy in the morning, or during the day.

I don't particularly care for these.

Surprised they're hitting $3 though. Blend change from the OR?

I have seen these going fairly inexpensively on other PAGEs in the past but only in the Toro size. Interestingly, I have seen several comments/reviews stating that the Toro is not as good as the other sizes and styles. Connection??

Hope it's a lie. Got a toro 5er a week back for just over $3/per

Mothership and little sister still selling these at typical price............$49 for a fiver.
They’re even more at other retailers.
The “other place” has a starting bid price of $29 for a fiver........and they sell for that price about half the time.
I’ve only had a few, and really liked em.........so I’m taking a chance......but I think it’s a safe gamble.
And I wanted to get in before cbid raises the FF reset, which I think they will, sooner than later, like they did with the Sobremesa and others.

Better NOT be some blend change bullchit, or special cbid release... ram27bat
Regarding the Toro....Maybe? But I’ve also read where some say it is the best vitola.....so. as usual.......it’s just a cigar. :-"


FF had another good deal on a DE sampler........15 cigars for low reset of 26.67?

3 - Joya de Nicaragua 1970 Antano Robusto Grande (5.5" x 52)

3 - Drew Estate Undercrown Gran Toro (6" x 52)

3 - Drew Estate Nica Rustica El Brujito (6" x 52)

3 - Drew Estate Herrera Esteli Toro (6" x 52)

3 - Drew Estate MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured Fat Molly (5" x 56)

Not everyone is a fan of all of those........I don’t like the Fire Cured so much.......but geez......that comes to $1.78/ea
That’s why there was well over 100 buyers on that one..........a very high number of buyers for a FF auction.
I’m almost thinking someone goofed?
Or, maybe cbid is really trying to reclaim their throne as “the Devil Site”...

The Laranja is one of my faves. I have both the churchill size and the robusto. Both are very good, but the edge imho, goes to the robusto. Dunno why...maybe a slightly larger ring gauge makes a difference?

the churchill's edge is in the length of time the cigar lasts...if you have the time, it has the smoke...

Yeah, well it was you who introduced me to these.....

Well, actually, I think maybe your granddaughter is responsible!

I snagged a few of these based on their high rating on Cigar Aficionado. After smoking one, I determined that Erik Espinosa must have been spending a lot on advertising around that time.

Tried the Espinosa 601 Steel recently. Not bad. Typical spicy Habano Nicaragua type of profile. Good even burn, good draw, good smoke output. Not mind-blowing, but lots of flavor and overall a very good stick for $2.20 each.

(I found a box of the "Rod" (5x54) vitola recently at the "scary site" for $55 with free shipping, applied 20% discount code to arrive at $44, divided by 20 is $2.20 per stick, delivered).

Good cigar for wheat/and or pilsner beers, if that's your thing.

E.L. is a good smoke at $3.20 per cigar. On my radar for next month! Herfing
