If it hadn't been cigars, it would have been something else. She was looking for a reason/excuse to dump you. Sometime in the future, maybe soon, maybe years from now, she may try to reconnect with...

Diesel Unlimited lancero (7"x38)

There have been a metric sh*t ton of 5-packs of these on C-Bid lately. Not sure if they are just excess stock they are trying to get rid of or what.

I was eyeing those. Nice presentation. I'm sure they're great, but they're out of my price range.

This is a cigar from Pinar Del Rio, a company that was hit or miss for me years ago but has been pretty consistently good recently.

Re: Buying cigars directly from manufacturers?

Thanks. I sent an email a few days ago asking if they still ship to the US. No response yet. I ordered a couple of samplers from them many years ago and I remember liking the cigars a lot.

Re: Buying cigars directly from manufacturers?
