Random quote: Frank opened a cigar box. Cuban Cohibas. He pressed one with his index finger and shook his head. "Guy spends four, five hundred bucks a box but doesn't know enough to put them in a humidor." He sighed, thinking about the hours of good smoking shot to hell. - Robert Andrews, from his novel, A Murder of Honor

Hey everyone,

As I was shopping around one of my local cigar places, I ran into some Don Diegos from Canary Islands. As you can see in the pics, the box is labeled that they've been aged since 1969! Naturally I had to pick one up, mainly out of curiosity. I looked throughout our database and cannot find a listing for them. I did some searching on the interwebs as well, but that turned up nothing. So now I'm turning to the real experts. Has anyone come across these Don Diegos and are they legit? Any help and info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all!

Mike

Apparently you need to have Pete teach you how to "search the interwebs"

Apparently I do! I've never been accused of being the brightest bulb in the box...

Thanks for your help!

I checked out those links that Pete passed along. They were some of the same ones I found when I was doing my previous search. I was looking for some more detailed information about these cigars so I could add them to the database. Unfortunately those links, along with others that I've found, don't provide enough information to add them here. Any suggestions on how we can go about getting them added, so I can provide a review and whatnot?

Just submit it with the info you have and add (discontinued) on the second line and in the notes section add any links with pertinent information so the admin. can verify it.
