So I did stop by but couldnt justify paying their prices. Dont get me wrong, they had a great selection of cigars and it is Vegas after all. Before I go any further, this is what I had with me in my travel humi...

2x LP NO9
T52 Flying Pig
Davidoff Special R
Davidoff Anaversario No3
La Gloria Cubana Series R

Now, I dont mind buying some HTF sticks, but the prices were just crazy IMO...

Opus X *** Cat $22
Opus X BBMF $125
Opus X Chili Pepper $75
Opus X Forbidden line, $55 and up

Anyone else have a hard time justifying paying those prices?

    Being a Fuente junky Ive tried casa fuentes primos and compared them to my same exact sticks with a OR label. They are EXACTLY the same. The only thing they have there worth the money is the Casa Fuente line because you cant get them else where. * O yeah how are the No.9? and the Davidoffs?*

    Davidoffs were fantastic like always! I have yet to smoke a Davidoff I did not like yet. The 9 was also great! Had that after a nice meal at Wing Lei over at the Wynn.
  • The 2 sticks you should get at Casa Fuente is the Don Carlos Lancero and Casa Fuente Lancero. If they have them in stock you can only buy 2 at a time at $22.00 a pop. Great cigar!

    Def get the Lanceros.

    Step away from the strip if you want to find sticks at a good price. The prices your seeing are in the casinos only....got to get some money back from all the free drinks. There are some sweet cigar bars away from the strip...without the sticker shock.

    Yea, I didnt have a car. I was at they Wynn and had free shuttle service to the convention center. So couldnt get away too far away, but was glad I brought some premiums with me.

    +1 to that! I'll be out there next week and might be looking to find something with less of a mark up.

    I went to casa fuente back in october, I about soiled myself when I saw the prices! Nice place and all and the waitresses are hot butthe prices are uber inflated. If you know something about something when it comes to cigars, like us, you'd walk out. Total tourist trap. I ended up smoking a King B torpedo for like 7 bucks.
  • docbp87docbp87 Posts: 3,521
    Never been the Casa Fuente... are the prices on regular release Fuentes that high? If you got a King B for 7$ that sounds right, god price even... The high prices are just on the Forbidden X, and CF only stuff, right? If my memory serves, they have a good deal on a Casa Fuente cigar and Mojito, right?
  • vegassparkyvegassparky Posts: 365
    casino prices for any opus can blow your mind...$80 dollars for a robusto is insane....but is common. And the prices on all cigars in casinos are inflated. Cigar lounges are starting to pop up all over town, some are rather nice. The man cave is a nice one, but i prefer The Leaf , there are 2 locations both just a few miles off of the strip. Prices are way better, and the selection is huge. There are 2 lounges by the airport that are you can hit up that have great prices also. One of them is a local shop that sales there own brand called vegas cigars, that is rolled in house...awesome to watch. They have a rum flavored corona that is wild! BUT you have to check out casa fuente, The cigar and mojito deal is worth it.

    So really whats the going price on the Casa Fuente?, I happened to stumble into a verry nice B&M today with many very good sticks, Anything from LFD airbender chisels to 262 paradigms, illusione, kristoffs, too many to list. Didnt see any Liga Privada though. I picked myself up a Macanadu 97 vintage and a 262 paradigm, and another I hadnt heard of before a Pura Sangre. He also had Casa Fuente and Opus as well. Prices were not bad for a B&M except for the OPUS and The Casa Fuente..those were way out of my league..Oh BTW he even had San Lotano's
