Default Padilla 68 Salomon Oscuro Limitada

I took a chance on this deal at CI http://www.cigarsinternational.com/p...7-M-10&cat=167
as they pulled the old bait n switch 2 months ago advertising the Oscuro and then giving us the Corojo. Well the Oscuro showed up and it was everything I thought it would be. Nice sweet maduro flavor, chocolate with a little spice. Great smoke all around. I might have to pull the trigger and get 10 more. At $3 a smoke you can't beat the price. I can't wait to try the Padilla 32 Oscruo.

Notcie the difference in the wrapper color between the Corojo and the Oscuro

They're for real now? I saw 'em in the catalogue, but was still bitter over the bait and switch before. Maybe I'll have to reconsider...

I had to pull the trigger on this one. I'm also a bit bitter about the previous switch, but hell, for that price I can't pass it up.

Has anyone received these yet? My order shipped today, but transit time here is about a week. I'm curious to see if they replaced these with the corojo like last time.

I picked up some of the 32 Salomon Oscuro on Joe Cigar last week. I may have to pick up some of these 68's as well.

Those '32 Oscuros were the BEST deal I've ever seen on Joe ... amazing.

I had another '68 the other night and like it quite a bit, I might have to grab some Oscuros if they come up again. 10 for $30 was a good deal (I don't see it on there now, though).
