Any of you BOTL's ever received any ISOMs that had cellos on them?

    I have not. To my knowledge, ISOMS don't come in cello.

    I have bought more ISOMS than my wallet cares to admit and I have never seen one in cello, single or in box...

    the cuban tradition is to have no cellophane on them.

    I could well be mistaken, but I think some machine made cigars come in cellophane.

    no, you are not mistaken. now that i put a bit of thought into it, i have seen many cuban machine made cigars that have cellophane on them.

    This. But otherwise, no they shouldn't have cello. If they do, they may very well be counterfeit.

    They are all pretty easy to come by, as they have annually pretty high production numbers (hell, I wouldn't be shocked if the Monte 4 is made in EVERY DAMN FACTORY ON THE ISLAND), but famous, and much loved flavor profiles. They aren't necessarily the BEST CCs, just some of the most popular, and overall representative sticks.

    La Gloria Cubana, Fonseca #1, El Rey del Mundo choix supreme...those are nice, lighter bodied cigars. In the medium-full category, the aforementioned Partagas Serie P and Serie D #4, Bolivar petit coronas and belicosos finos, Romeo y Julieta petit coronas and churchills, H Upmann #2 Magnum 50 and Magnum 46, San Cristobal Murallas. Hard to confine myself to just a few recommendations, but those are all cigars I've had very good experiences with.

    Trinidads are good too, kinda pricey though

    The Reyes can be found for pretty low prices in boxes of 24 usually, but other than those, yeah, the Trinis tend to be pricey.

    I've really enjoyed Montecristo #2 and Romeo y Julieta.

    Sorry going back to the original question of this thread...some do, but mostly machine mades such as flor de canos, la flor de caney, Troyas, Balindas, guantanameras, ERMs and some other machine made. but as far as I know they have all been discontinued for a while. There were some hand mades that came in cello, Por Larrangas, FDCs, and a few others, but if thats what you got they would be way old, 15+ years ago easy. EDIT - Shucks just read further down....yeah Kuzi and Joezer were right on earlier. same as above.

    San Cristobal Murallas.
    Excellent stick for sure. I was gifted a few and they were absolutely amazing. If you can find an ISOM Cohiba, they are pretty good to, as long as it's the genuine article. I just got gifted a Cohiba Siglo IV and after doing the research on the band, I found it's the real deal so woohoo.

    Awesome, I appreciate it. At the very least that is enough variety to make some comparisons and see which ones I gravitate towards.
    Light 'em up.

    I have a couple of boxes of Flor de Cano Selectos Cello 1998. They are machine made and come in Cello. They are authentic Cuban cigars That I bought directly from a LCDH in Europe. It's a decent smoke even though is is a short filler. It's not complex but you do get that typical tang that only a Cuban can provide. image

    Yep. As has been said before, machine made, short filler sticks are the only thing that you'll find in Cello.

    I've never seen those either, tubos yes, glass tubos no...

    Glass topped Cohiba's fakes are common in the Mexican cruise ports.
