La Flor de Cano Preferidos

Other reviews here. Box code was CBNISU (December 1998). Smoked Saturday 14 November 2009. This was a bit crap. Tired, I thought I’d just go for something that wasn’t going to last too long. This certainly didn’t. I was having … Continue reading

Same batch as this one. Took this with me to a gig on Saturday 7 November 2009 to stop myself from scrounging cigarettes off others. I’d moistened the beads in my Cubans coolbox so thought I’d give them a week … Continue reading

La Flor de Cano Selectos

Reviews here. Box code was EGD CCUT. Smoked Sunday 1 November 2009. I had to bite the tip off this as I didn’t have a cutter convenient. Did a surprisingly good job in the dark. Probably could have been better … Continue reading
