Can you provide any info on why they might be different from the OR? Not trying to call you out or anything, I'm honestly just curious as I've seen other people make the same comment.
Can't say what happened to the wrappers between the OR's and the Aug & Sept rolls, but they aren't even close in my opinion. The wrappers on the OR's are oilier and they have a pepper blast at the initial lite that's like a smack in the face. Even the very first reviews commented on how the pepper subsided after the first 3/4" - 1" of the cigar. Seasoned smokers that I gave the original sticks to, referred to them as "pepper bombs". The August and September rolls just don't have that initial kick in the teeth, that the July release presented...but they sure do deliver in every other way. I don't know why...I just know from my own experience.

Maybe the foil wraps are different? I don't want to unwrap them to find out just yet.

The wrappers on the OR I smoked and last one I have left are super oily and smooth, while the newer release ones I nabbed are more Padronish in wrapper texture.

Alright guys - sorry to drop in as the un-informed straggler again... but can someone break down the releases for me? (Not to say I haven't searched but I may have just missed it.)

I'm seeing the term "OR" (I assume original release), "Aug & Sep", and the ones I have I understand to be "Nov 2009".

Was there more than just the 200 boxes in Hawaii (i.e. was that the OR with Aug, Sep, and Nov to follow)? Is there a future release planned?

Real quick like...

1st release, approx 200 boxes this is the OR

2nd release, box codes Oct 09 were rolled at the same time as the OR and were considered Marvin's "Private Stash". They were boxed in Oct 09 and consisted of approx 38 boxes

3rd Release, box date Nov 09, rolled Oct-Nov 09 and boxed using same tobacco from the OR. Approx 200 boxes

4th release, left over tobacco from the OR batch but no bands as they ran out. These were rolled, bundled, and wrapped in foil. box code Feb 10

There is no more tobacco left fromt he OR batch so no more planned releases of the T110.

I had T110 not long ago, and I honestly wasn't overly impressed. It wasn't a bad cigar, but it definitely didn't do anything to make me want to try another.

I DO appreciate your review, though. Thanks!

1st release rolled I thought in April/May, but later conversations with Marvin leaned towards June(?) and released in July. 2nd release rolled in August and some were released in November, from Marvin's stash (these were all Aug roll). September roll produced the boxes that Marvin shipped after the holiday's. After those three rolls I wasn't following what what happening until I had some very enjoyable conversations with Marvin last month. As far as the final boxes that were released with the unbanded sticks...all I knew was that the wrappers were the same as the Aug & Sept production. Marvin says all the wrappers are the same...

Here's the difference in wrapper I'm talking about..

OR on left (more oily and a bit lighter), Newer on right (more Padronish and darker)

I'll take the one on the left off your hands AJ, since it's already out of the box and all...

I have read that some prefer the later releases over the the OR's...
