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.

Can't tell if this one is filled up with reviewers or not. I love Sumatra wrappers so if there is an opening or you need an alternate I'll volunteer.

I've had a few of their cigars - all very good. Actually, I'm only about 20 miles from there right now! With all the rain we've had around here, I bet the area is a swamp still...

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.
