"Well, I'm not really sure what to say here. This cigar gave me the creeps. The musty flavors and smell reminded me of my grandparent's basement. I remember being a kid and their eerie basement had the same mustiness this cigar did. I was always uncomfortable going down there alone, especially in the little room in the back. It was like something out of The Conjuring. No thank you. " -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
"I really enjoyed this cigar. There were enough transitions to keep me engaged and I found the experience effortless which is hugely important to me. " -Alan (Eulogy)
In the case of shop events, it can be challenging for a small cigar shop. The difficulty comes in a few different forms. On one hand, a smaller cigar shop simply doesn't have as much space for customers. Also, a brand owner would typically be less inclined to spend the time money and effort to hold an event at a small cigar shop. But brands who have a broad following and dedicated group of talented sales reps can take chances on small shop events, and sometimes turn them into a success. In late July of 2018, I spent the evening at my local shop and had a wonderful time at a small scale cigar event.
In a 250-mile stretch between Arturo Fuente Head office in Tampa fl, Florida, and Port Everglades in Ft Lauderdale, a 40-foot delivery container loaded with thousands of Fuente cigars was stolen.

"I want to smoke another one of these refined, delicious cigars immediately. I’m so curious to see if the flavor profile is consistent amongst other samples because if they are - it is without a singular doubt box-purchase worthy. Seek this excellent cigar out immediately before I buy them all!" -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)
This cigar was so much better after a couple months of rest. When I first smoked it, I knew it was good, but not as special as I hoped. This time it was special. This 20th Anniversary Opus is nothing like the regular opus. It is medium bodied and nuanced, not in your face strength. The construction was almost perfect and the flavors were balanced. I only look forward to how this will age years on. Definitely recommend if you can find them.
The Eye of the Shark comes with a mystique of its own. It is a slightly milder and crisper cigar than it's fellow Anejo shark. The construction is just as pleasant with a nice wrapper color and build. Again, this cigar was an amazing treat with a softer beginning to a leather and spice finish that never overpowered and never diminished. If you are able to find these at not outrageous prices do yourself the favor.
