Man, it has been brutally cold here in Chicago.  I've been itching to get outside with a cigar but even the smallest La Flor Dominicana Carajos is too long of a smoke for this weather.  Be safe out there, my friends!


The limited edition Black Honey from Warped was released in 2023.  It was the first time we had seen a Black Honey since they were first introduced in 2017.  These cigars take two of Warped's biggest super premium blends and combine them into one phenomenal smoke.  The Black Honey takes the filler/binder blend of the La Colmena, and they top that off with the Ecuadorian Oscuro wrapper leaf of their rare El Oso.  Singles and a few 10-count boxes from the 2023 release are still available.  A lot of leather and some nice hints of molasses, fig and dark coffee on these cigars.  That Ecuadorian Oscuro wrapper adds a touch of black pepper and cedar to round out the flavor profile.


Another 2023 release you should really think about grabbing is the limited edition 2023 Don Pepin Garcia 20th Anniversary.  We ran a sale on singles and 20-count boxes of these gems at the end of 2023, and we carried over that sale to 2024.  I don't expect them to be around for much longer, so make sure you put an order in soon.  Don Pepin and My Father always knocks it out of the park with their limited edition blends, and the Don Pepin 20th is no exception.

Also, I'm very happy to announce we have the exceptional My Father Le Bijou 1922 back here in the store.  I believe the Le Bijou is the best example of a My Father blend.  It's incredibly well-balanced for a full bodied cigar, delivering big flavor in a rich, complex smoke.  


Finally, we have two cigars that we haven't seen for a little while back here in the store.  First is the Ashton Symmetry, a cigar that perfectly incorporates both Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos in the blend.  They're finished with an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that helps bring the cigars to a balanced, full flavored medium body.  Both the Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos are from Arturo Fuente.  The Ashton Symmetry, I believe, was the very first regular production cigar to feature Nicaraguan tobaccos from the Fuente's new farm there.  

The second cigar is Dominican through and through.  The Davidoff Royal Release has an amazing blend of aged Dominican filler tobaccos, including a nice amount of rich Ligero.  The wrapper leaf is a special Dominican hybrid developed for use only on these Davidoff Royal Release cigars.  Singles and 10-count boxes of both sizes are back here in the store.
