    Not to pick on your 5-star LP Feral Flying Pig here, but in the interest of full disclosure, where did you get and who paid for this cigar? Have you considered, for the sake of full disclosure, including this information in all your reviews here?

    ROTHNH,

    I usually always disclose where I get my cigars in my review. If I get them from the manufacturer I usually will state so. In this case I bought one from a friend on a cigar forum, and I traded some of my favorite cigars (El Centurions) to acquire several more on the same forum. So I hope this helps you out. There really isn’t anybody in the central Texas region that got these into their store so I had to acquire them through other channels. Nor have I ever spoken to, met, or even seen a Drew Estate rep/Steve Saka/Marvin Samuel/Jonathan Drew ever in my life.

    Wow… such a great review you are getting accused of being a shill! LOL :>

    In the interest of full disclosure, I am the president of this company, the cigars blend, name, etc. were my idea brought to fruition by the labor of many talented people all of whom work for me. I think it is on hell of great cigar and I hope to become filthy rich selling them!

    Ok, that last part isn’t possible, nobody gets rich on such a small batch.

    In all seriousness, thanks for the kind words, I am glad you enjoyed the cigar. For me the key point in your review was the issue of “smokability” – changing the format/vitola was done expressly for this purpose. I to always felt the Flying Pig size to be a bit of a novelty smoke, but by elongating it as we have in the FFP it became a cigar you could actually sit down and savor for over an hour and a half, both comfortable in your hand and in your mouth.

    BR,

    Appreciate the kind words Steve. I guess now I can’t say I haven’t conversated with you. My only problem is that now that I am hooked on this stick I have nowhere to get more at the moment. What are the production numbers looking like for this stick?

    Steve/Aaron – I just smoked one this weekend. By far, one of the best cigars I have smoked in a long time (even compared to some Cubanos I have). Well worth every bit of the $15.00 I spent on it.

    Just ordered a box of these bad boys and can’t wait to spark one up! Great review, Aaron. Frankly, it’s awesome that executives and men behind the production of the cigars rated on this site visit the review forums and comment themselves. I think that’s part of what makes the cigar community so appealing…let alone the great smokes that bring friends together to mark special occaisions.

    Searched high and low for these like I was some freakin 1800’s explorer with ZERO luck. Just happened to stop by local Binny’s in Highland Park, IL to pick up a case of Boveda 75’s humidity paks (in the winter – lower humidity/drier conditions).

    Walked around the humidor and slap me silly, a box/tray with 8 sticks left. Merry Christmas in March! Just sitting there. Just so happens that their current promotion is 15% off if you buy 5 cigars. $12.32 per stick since I took all 8. Can you say “cha-ching”??? Will smoke one tomorrow at my private lounge and put the other 7 away to sit for about 1-2 years. Just goes to show you that when you are loyal to your local B&M, you are occasionally rewarded with gifts from the gods!!

    Just had one tonight finally after searching the internet forever to find a box. Took quite some time to smoke due to the ring gauge but enjoyed every minute of it. If this is one cigar I can recommend by drew estates, this is it. Awesome smoke! Very powerful and goes nicely with a good porter or scotch. I simply loved this cigar and can’t wait until the others have sat in my humor for some time to mature a little bit more. Simply wow…
