Heads Up! Esoterica at Mars Cigar!

Post by DAN » Thu Jul 30, 2020 6:38 pm

They said "small quantity," so hurry if you want some. I just bought one tin of one of the VaPers because it's supposed to be so good. Watch me turn around and like the stuff and have to wait two years for another chance.

I have Esoterica out my butt. Don't ask. It's for my customers.

As it should be.

I don't even know if I'm gonna like the stuff, but I guarantee if I do, it will promptly prove to be made of unobtainium.

Just read this and I seem to be too late for either Tilbury or Dunbar. Haven't had either for years. Still... good on you DAN for letting us know; had I been around yesterday I'm sure it would have been a good day.

Yeah, a tin of Penzance would have been nice. It's been years.

It really is incense like. Just crumbles into your pipe too and stays lit well. One of the best smokes I have ever had.

Never understood Penzance.

Then again, I don't much appreciate Latakia so I stay away and let others have it.

Peacehaven and Dorchester, though. Whoo.

Imma love some of that.

Nah. See, I’d have to sell it to you for that to happen. Since that isn’t going to happen, your whole argument crumbles. :lol:

Penzance, as I remember, is not at all Lat forward. I think it's the mix of other Orientals and the heat-pressure that gives it a sort of spicy incence note. Almost like cinnamon and to me. Weird, I know. But it's been years and my memory, well, it's fading. I'm pretty sure it was better fresh than aged too.

The tins I had were the rectangular ones from around 2008, I think. I smoked them all up not knowing how hard they would be to get again.

Yep. Even without much strength it's up near the top.

It is wonderful. Also wonderful is the phone call I received from my local tobacconist yesterday morning in which I was informed that they just received a shipment of Esoterica. They’re holding 2 bags of Peacehaven for me which I will be picking up in the morning Image

It looks like they are sold out at Mars.

https://www.marscigars.com/esoterica.aspx

I clicked through the menu and everything seems to be out of stock on Mars.

That made me very angry. Very angry indeed.

Yeah that’s a bummer.
