            They were overpriced anyway but to up the price by 10% just before launch is really taking the p IMHO.

            Of course it won,t put people off buying them who were going to buy them in the first place.

              It's got to be supply and demand governing the price and as they are made from tobacco of limited availability and by the best rollers out of one factory there won't be masses of them I assume.

              It's always easier in these circumstances to drop the prices after launch (or offer some deals) rather than hike the price once expectations have been set.

              I'd expect huge quantities to be hoovered up and popped away to age for 4 or 5 years even at this new price so I don't expect to see the shelves of the London stores groaning with them.

              Some of us will probably get to smoke ours from the Summer Party and then return to 'normality' but be able to at least say we have smoked one.

              If I can't afford to buy any more I probably won't enjoy the first one anyway!!!

                I wish that I had the spare cash to buy a box of them on release. A few years down the line I suspect a first release box would be worth a fair few bob... Never mind smoking the blighters, they must be a better bet than an ISA.

                  I'm on the waiting list and already agreed to pay for them without knowing how much
                  I planned on sitting on them for a while though once I get them.....

                    shame about the 10% price increase but im sure i will buy a box anyways probably of the smallest size as i have heard good things about these sticks!

                      10% price increase on what? there has been no price set as yet- makes no sense

                      I smoked them all at the launch in Havana- quite possibly the best Havana cigar I have tried in the last decade and that view has so far been shared by just about everyone I know who also tried them in Havana.

                      An entirely different expression of flavour to any other Havana-truly unique

                      Don't diss it before you have experienced them as you are in for a pleasant surprise.

                      I come from the 'buy less but buy the best' school of thought :-)

                      Cheers
