Damn I love my job. Not only do I burn cigars all day long, chug beers and fondle women (I kid, I kid), but I get to be the idiot savant of cigar deals, spinning you spine-tingling deals like an automaton. I find this particular deal to be juicy.
This just in: yes, the official CI historians have confirmed that this is Exhibit #12,347 in the anthology of CI competition-crushing deals. You're right, the competition has already been crushed, but you get the idea. Bahia Blu is a medium-bodied handmade from Nicaragua that's priced to move. Dressed in a fairly attractive Corojo wrapper that's smooth and glistening - under the hood is a blend of 5 to 6-year old long Nicaraguan long-fillers grown in Esteli, Jalapa, and Leon. The end result is a somewhat rich and toasty flavor with a sweet, cedary core, and crisp, lingering aftertaste. I've found a bit of a consistency issue from time to time but by and large a nice, everyday, handmade value. By far the best attribute is the crazy blowout price.
