I have seen al these cigars in real life already and I kid you not, the packaging as well as presentation is second to none.


They are not cheap cigars, so start saving your money for these! They are only available through retail so you won't be able to buy them online.


If you need contact details of where to find these cigars then contact us for more details.


Keep coming back during the next few weeks to read the reviews.
