    I just got a few in but I have not had it yet. It looks a little darker than the 08. I wish I could get more of the 2007. Now, that was a good cigar!

    Part of that extra $100 is friendly HOWDY from the good ole SCHIP Tax. The reason it is still so much lower on the 08 is because the Tax doesn't apply to cigars that were already in stock. The 09 is all new stock and is going to be higher.

    Yeah, but the SCHIP caps at $0.42 a cigar, so it should only go up $8.40 for a box of 20. $100 is considerably more than $8.40.

    I saw tha too... I don't know.. That is a huge cost increase. I will wait for it to show up in a daily special at a more reasonable price

    I think because its so limited

    Price is because of availability. This years batch is considerably smaller and the wrapper is a very different Dominican Sun Grown. In years past, La Aurora made the cigar, this year MATASA made it. Nice smoke, if you like the 5 Vegas Relic, you will like this one.

    I definitely agree with that point. It's a good smoke, worth trying. I'll have to smoke a few more, but as it sits right now it is likely to fall right behind the '06 as my favorite Limitada.
