    What did you think of the original Don Linos?

    They were ok. Not anything special though.
    Which is why I have to wonder what they are doing differently.
    Other than AJ will have his stamp on it.

    I heard that they are using real African Cameroon as a wrapper on the new edition, which apparently wasn't true on the old one.

    The original contained Cameroon seed tobacco.
    So no, it wasn't genuine Meerapfel cameroon.
    But, they are going to justify a higher price for genuine cameroon, when a lot of makers are using it and their price points are considerably less.

    I will try them, but I seriously doubt I will make it a habit of buying them, since they are talking that the price point will be about $9-11 and they will be using the cameroon as a filler and a Ecuadorian habano 2000 wrapper and as a box press.
    That does not really appeal to me.

    For my money, the New World Cameroon will be a much better cigar for almost half the cost.

    So I see the new Don Lino Africa is out.
    $10 per cigar. Seriously?

    So let's see.
    AJ New World Cameroon $6
    Don Carlos #4 $8.50
    La Flor Dominicana Cameroon Cabinet $9.00

    So with all these great cameroon cigars available at less, why would anyone spend $10 per cigar for a revamp of a marginally good budget cigar?

    There is no question, I will have to buy a couple to try them, but even a diehard cameroon fiend like myself, I can't ever see this one being part of my rotation.
    Maybe if they come on sale or something, but at that price point, that's a hell no.

    Thanks Chris.  Weird that the camaroon is the filler on this one.  The wrapper really overpowers it, and it's not until the wrapper chills out that the camaroon comes alive.  

    If they were going to go this route, I'd have rather seen a Criollo or even maybe a Connecticut wrapper on it to let the filler take over.  Very odd choices...
