We have a La Colmena exclusive (think Unico but bigger!) in the works and we are really excited to be working with Kyle! We are probably 100-130 days out from release but once I get couple samples next week I'll be sure to post up some more pictures!

Thats pretty tight! I really liked the La Colmena blend, although Id rather have it in a petit size but I'll try and get a few of these.

Probably be over priced like the rest of their stuff.

You know they will be...thats why I'll grab just a few singles at most. You can pick up La Colmena's now for about half msrp. SBC usually does 5 packs but I'm sure I can get a few singles, if they are only sold in boxes of 10 I'll probably pass because I have plenty of this blend in sizes that I like.

That is my point. I would only pay half MSRP for these. Don't care if it is a special size.

Logan, remember that anything out of El Titan de Bronze will cost more.  The stuff out of Nicaragua is a lot more  competitively priced.

Especially when rollers want $1 per cigar they produce (more if your name is Maria Sierra). They are lucky to get a nickel in Nicaragua.

Actually it is like six cents. For real.

Yea Miami/El Titan costs 5x the amount to produce a cigar.

Coop - totally agree but the math still doesn't make sense. 

For example, the LC has around 100 rolled per day. The guy rolling it does the bunching and the rolling. Lets say for giggles we pay them $20 per hour which is fully burdened. This will include tax, insurance, ect. if any.

8 hours a day * 20 = $160 so labor would be approximately $1.6 per stick vs. around ~15 cents in Nicaragua.

La Colmena is $15 per cigar and FdV is ~$9 per cigar, for the most expensive vitola.

I would say the labor cost is part of it but would say a lot has to do with the scale of his operation and no buying power.

You forgot to add one thing Logan...The tobacco used in the LC is a lot more expensive (per lb) vs. the tobacco used in Flor del Valle blend, the wrapper cost is near double for the De Florado than the Aganorsa Corojo. Not to mention the filler/binder is higher quality in Warped Miami made products.
