So a SCI friend bought a box of San Pareil cigars at our Nashville banquet and out of either genuine kindness, or sympathy, gave me the box to smoke. He does not smoke cigars, but was bidding up Chris Barrett. It was 10 cigars and I quit bidding at $300. Lets just say it was spirited bidding. Anyway, I pop one of these guys out about every 4-5 months, and enjoy a true 2 hour cigar. Awesome from first draw to last finger-tip butt. I probably will never buy a box due to cost, but I do enjoy the pleasure of this ultra premium cigar.
