LaLuna Cigars

Cigarking has 2 types of LaLunas for sale. But, IMO they are pricey.

your friend needs to develop a taste for less expensive cigars

They're not actually La Lunas, they're "La Luna Cigar King Selection." This is supposedly a blend developed by Gael to mimic the old "blue band" blend, and they're pretty good smokes.

And Mikey, if you think $4.40 per cigar for the torpedos ($3.52 with the discount code that Andy provided) is "pricey," you're trying to apply a White Owl budget to vastly better cigars.

If you're looking for good value I have some hints
  1. Avoid no name brands on cbid in anything but 5 packs, and limit your bid (do research on CI website to see what you would pay retail for them)
  2. Think of sticking with the high value brands - consuegra as Rob G posted remain a heck of a value if you like that flavor profile. Mike's and CI have pretty good value brands and samplers too.
  3. Ask for opinions before buying (you done did that!)
  4. Beware of buying more than you can store - trust me I didn't have all those coolers (20+, then 30+) because of my purchasing discipline
  5. If you want a sampler let me know and I will sample you plenty, I still have a good inventory

Doug, the only LaLuna cigar I really liked were the old LaLuna blend. Sorry, but for me $3.52 is pricey for a person on a fixed income. I have cigars that are very tasty and nowhere near $3.52/stick.

Have not heard of these and need to try them. I assume they are only at cigar king and that you can buy singles, but I will check.

Boy Jon, with the up coming Gulf Coast reunion this brings back memories of the Herf in Panama City when Gael and Marta were our quests.
