I hope this cigar lives up to the Robaina name. I am having a buddy of mine pick me up a box of these cigars at IPCPR becuase I will be unable to make it. I have smoked a few Cubanacan cigars in the past and have not been blow away by them but the blend sounds like one I will enjoy and like I said before I sure hope it lives up to the Robaina name (I'd like to know how much Hirochi was involved in the blending process).

I have a feeling this cigar is going to suck

We'll see, I will let you know, doing a box split with someone who is attending.

It probably will. The only thing I really am looking forward to is the Warped Unico Jar and I am getting one of those for sure!

Spencer Drake from Cubanacan seemed really excited about this blend and I believe it will be in the $10-12 range in most markets. I hope it loves
Up to the hype.
