Smile ISO a box of BTL - May 2, 2012, 12:35 AM

Looking for a box, at a reasonable price. Any one able to point me in the direction of one ? Looking to complete my collection of Hemingway's and
the prices of some of these places are ridiculous !

Thanks for looking.

I have found some around that price, but a few places were cheaper but out of stock.
Just thought someone may know a place. I live in NY and the only place around here that has a box the price is nuts, but that is the taxes here at work.

Problem with Arnolds is I live in NY, have to pay the tax, meaning 400+ for the box.

But that's what you are going to pay. Those who list at MSRP never have any and those who have them sell them in about 12 seconds. You're likely going to end up in the secondary market which means 400+ is what you are going to pay.

cheers

You could try these shops. Both have BTLs in stock (or did, last time I was there). Probably no cheaper than the prices mentioned, though...

I am deliberately going to skip trying this cigar. There is no way it can live up to the hype. That being said. The Sungrown Rosado's and the Sungrown are very nice !

It's a very good $10 cigar...problem is, you can't get it for less than $14...

I've had two of these ( years ago), and could not understand the hype AT ALL.

Hemingway with a fancy wrapper, nice to look at but not worth much of a premium, if you ask me. I do pick them up when I find them though.

I wanted a few for my collection just to "age" with no real intention of smoking them. Got 5 of them from Wynnefield but they weren't a rock bottom bargain price

I found that the more recent editions of the BTL are not as good as the older ones.

I got a box about a year ago for Christmas, smoked 2 and sold the rest.

JC is one awesome tradder and its cohim loss to never be able to deal with one of the most awesome guys around anywhere. Try to never commit to something you are not sure about, more so if a guys is going out of his way to lay out dollars for you.

Now that I know this I will try to remember not to deal with him either.

Surprisingly, this is one Fuente cigar I have not got around to smoking yet. At $15 a cigar I would rather have a UTS.
