Hi Folks. Wanted to give you guys another update. I had the chance to have one of the latest samples and I have to say I'm pretty happy with it. I think we've got one to run with. Antonio agrees, so I think we are ready to move forward with production. We'll likely be looking early summer timeframe before we see them ready to ship. I'll give you an update on pricing as we get closer, but i'm hoping our lofty standards hasn't pushed it too high.

What I can tell you is that they will be boxes of 10 so that they are more affordable to a larger group of folks. They will be a box of Petit Lanceros (6 x 38) and our target price was around $80. Certainly there will be opportunity for box splits for folks that want to do it. But, there will only be 100 boxes in this run. Depending on how it goes there may be further runs. We'll see.

A few more details and pictures of the sample - it will have a pig tail head and a closed foot. 2 of my favorite things in a cigar. I like being able to pinch the head to remove the pig tail without any need to cut and then the easier lighting of the foot with the closed end (my opinions of course.)

Anyway here's a few pics. Hopefully they articulate the quality of the construction, because I have to say they look and smoke really nice in person. I have another resting and i'm anxious to see how it might change over time.

Cheers!
-Paul
