What is it? Where are they?

Obviously a Cigar.com photo and it has left me scratching my head. I have never seen them for sale. The photo shows 7 Golds and the text lists 8.

    I e-mailed them and I am waiting on an answer. I thought someone on the forum might have some insight/knowledge or the actual cigar.

    I know it was around in 2012 but a solamone is really hard to roll so I'm thinking they discontinued it due to cost and construction

    Well, it seems it was a surprise to a couple of other people. Anyway I got an answer and they found 10, which I bought. Should be interesting.

    I think that may have occurred to someone at CCom. But I am ready to go.

    I'm willing to volunteer my time. Less than an hour away from me and I wouldn't mind stopping at Sands on the way home. :)

    phew! that's a monster.
    bet you'd need a few extra cups of coffee to get through one of those in the morning. probably a 2-3 hour long smoke.

    Or a bottle of some good libation. Anyway I won't know for a couple of months. I am going to send one out in a bomb and horde the rest, though I do have to wonder how long they were unknown and aging.

    The more I look at this shape, aside from the cap it looks very similar to the freedom blend. That was a 6.5 x 64 salamon
