    Ah.... You've put it more in perspective there Matt!
    Still, I'm very jealous of your discount

            'In my day' if he was a permanent member of staff, and he had a Harrods card, he would have got 10% off... but that may well have been done away with by the present owners...

              Laurel and Hardy's review of this yesterday didn't blow me away.

                  Reviews have been rather bad. I think that I will skip this one and rather wait for the RA.

                    92/94 or so but they were not enthusiastic. Not for the markup anyway.

                        I'd go back to when I started smoking / buying when HDMDC's, HUSW's, Boli CG's and many more were everywhere sometimes with age and always a great smoke.

                          The QdO always seem overpriced and a bit unnecessary to me, it’s not different enough to the corona to be worth the premium IMO. It would need spectacular reviews to change my mind.

                            The 54 was my first love, had a few average ones since but can't seem to shake it. Will always have a special place in my humidor.

                              Don’t get me wrong I like QdO, the corona is lovely and they have had some cracking regionals recently I specifically mean the new LE is overpriced. They aren’t too dissimilar size to the corona and therefore aren’t worth the premium IMO, I had no intention of buying a box unless they were receiving amazing reviews.

                                How do the specials compare to the reg production with QdO? I know they?re marketed as a budget smoke but in my experience they?re definitely never a brand I?d buy blind. I went through close to 20 boxes to get a decent box of 50 and 54 and they still seem a bit hit n miss unless that was just a bad batch.

                                Not sure if the QC on the limiteds has been better?
