    See you got as lucky as I did in Vigo & also had the unfortunate/fortunate experience of having the wife with you to witness the real cost!!! Sure you'll enjoy these for a long time; you should try the Selectos Finos, I find it hard to believe the Don Jose will be as good.

    My nose for a stash never fails, and sometimes luck strikes.
    When I arrived on holiday in Italy 4 days ago my only worry was La Escepcion. I bought one in Switzerland in May, and as the strongest Cuban it is supposed to be, and as wonderful a smoke it was, I dreamed of getting my hands on a case or two. I knew it would be difficult but I also knew I was so far out that there’d be some waiting for me.
    Alas and then when you finally arrive in Italy’s backcountry and walk into two shops with humidors and find nothing of hope you are mentally already at a setback. Shocking to say the least. Not a Don Josè in sight and none to be had. No matter how much you pleaded.

    So you spend days under the sun with good food and drink and the disappointment slowly dissipates.

    Until one day - today- you decide to follow your woman on some shopping at a large outlet. Upon arrival suddenly the nose smells something familiar nearby. A tabaccheria. Well you might as well have a look because who knows. AND VOILÁ there they are in all their might and glory. Don Josè, Casanovas and even a couple of boxes of my favourite - the Topes.

    O Goddess of luck I kiss your feet for this beautiful find. A price I will savour for years to come.
