Wow, that'll be a fast turnaround. Looks like it's a local shop not geared for national sales?

From what I understand, this is a small production boutique. Matt will have more details.

And yes, it will be a very fast turnaround. Depending on when Matt gets the cigars and then ships them back out, we may extend the due date a few days.

I read so many good things about these Cigars and the family owned business. I first heard about them when tragedy struck early this year when the (very) young co owner died in a freak accident. My heart sank and I remember thinking how sad and unfair life sometimes is.

Seems people drive from afar to get to the shop in Weston and buy freshly rolled cigars that most reviews I've read praise highly.

They have a very simple line up of cigars. Sometimes simple is the way to perfection.

Agreed!! Looking forward to a Critique of a lesser known brand

If you need so body I'm in, if someone wants in that hasn't had a chance by all means let them.

All those so far who have said you're in, you're in. Quite a delay on this one. Corey seems to be quite busy. Have spoken with his coworkers a couple of times but have not heard back yet. He has agreed to do it, so hopefully it's not delayed much longer. More to follow. Sorry guys. I'll try calling again tomorrow.

So latest is that they got flooded. Been working hard to get everything cleaned up. They are not a large online seller so their daily customers are obviously priority. But, they are very eager to get our sticks out and have them reviewed, so still a go. Will post more on the stick to be reviewed once I get the info. I think he would like to showcase a Connecticut but again, more to follow.

Well, not a Sumatra, a Connecticuit is what Corey chose to Showcase. I see 5 names showing interest. You 5 have first dibs, but if you decline due to not being the Sumatra please let us know. I see 05venturer, DonM, MacMac, Ken and Horrido. Will get more specs for database and add the attached narrative.

Wow just need to say varied ratings on this cigar. I honestly liked mine so was it luck or did others find the stick having issues. I had mine in my Cuban humidor so did the magic get pasted to my tester?

The Weston that I smoked came to me w/ two cracks. One near the foot and one just under the cap. It reseted in my tupperdor at 70% until I smoked it. The cigar was not dry when I smoked it but it appears it had been at some point. The crack at the cap made the cigar a challenge to smoke.

different strokes I think. I really like a full bodied cigar with lots of popping out flavors. But the Weston to me was a good cigar. I would not buy a box of them but a fiver I would do just to have a nice milder smoke for certain occasions.

After thinking about how the reviewers had different experiences a fiver now would make sense if we all hit the high 80 or 90's then maybe a box.

I am surprised at the variance in scores! The only thing I had as a negative was that it wasn't complex, mine was well constructed Ann smoked well too
