what new habanos release are you most excited about.. i'm not a big cohiba fan but i cant wait to try the new maduro line, and the handmade party culabras look pretty cool.
Reserva del Montecristo No.4 and any of the Cohiba maduros. Hope pricing isn't as high as the LEs tend to be though.
Por Larranaga Robustos (Asia) & Magnificos (UK).
Better beautiful than perfect
That's my fear on the Cohbia Maduros. I'm sure they're going to be very pricey.
The Oncoming Storm
Is there an confirmation of the partagas culebras? I know they've been rumoured, but they've been rumoured before and I haven't found a reputable source confirming them.

i'm not sure either, i seen a video clip on them from the habanos festival, and i'm pretty sure there hand and not machine made this time around... i hope they are released, i want some!
I heard that the Cohiba Maduros would be about 10% higher than there regular line.
IMO, that's not too bad. You had to expect they'd be at least a bit more.

The culebras are now handmade. That's what makes them different hermanos...
