Gents, thanks so much for including my list on your show. I appreciate and you mentioning me – and you do a great job.
The debate about whether or not including a limited edition, limited production cigar is a philosophical one and almost a religious war. Many times I heard you mention that it is about smoking the best cigars of the year. In my mind, I agree with this concept, but approach it differently. This is about smoking the best cigars and not a popularity or availability contest. The impact of the LEs in our market is huge and cannot be ignored. To make a list, and ignore the LE segment is ignoring a big part of our industry. I’m sure we can debate this forever, but I think this is what makes the cigar industry so great.
Our list was a hybrid of LEs and cores. No doubt, it swung LE in 2012 toward the top of the list. This differed from 2011 where we had more core lines.
La Palina. The La Palina listed on my listed was the La Palina Collection Goldie Laguito No. 2. You didn’t mention it was the “Goldie”, but it is technically part of the La Palina Collection line that has been launched.
