First, I must say "very cool" to Opy for changing back to one od your original oictures, The one showing is my fav. Now only if we can get andyson to revert to the "Newman Collection....Yes Wizz, my dear friend and fellow c club member, 100 of anything will make you dull...although 100 oz of gold has a nice, everlasting feel to it. But Gurkha ? I'm reserved for a finer education on them. As it stands now I have yet to find even small pieces of legit justification for the price.
At retail, the truly good cigar can be had for $10 usually. It gets better at the $15 to $20 range, I'm talkin' dern good stogies. From the $20 to $30 slot, you are playing pretty serious ball and would be aided to play there with a decent education. Cigars above $30 , need a pedigree, and a compelling true story or an idiot. There are some amazing cigar farmers that have generations of passed on expertise along with extremely creative, highly educated and devoted offspring with competative spirits that show. Companies with many years of properly aged and nurtured vintage leaves to slowly be used and depleted with great care and love for an exotic purpose. It is much more complicated than just rolling a c-gar.
I started this thread only because the La Antiquedad is a new product from the fabulous maker My Father and that new product lines are rare, especially at My Father. I paid $10 for it, reduced because it is a new entry. It will retail at around $16, as a guess. I didn't post because I thought it was the best ever...just really good.
