Have any members here ever heard of this brand?

 

We may have to send Tall Paul on a recon mission to buy a few and smoke them to see if these guys are smoking cigars or crack over there in New Hampshire.

For what I'd spend on one box of those I'd buy 6 boxes of Padrons, Tats, and LPs and finish myself off! :sign:

2 Guys has two very nice stores here in NH, but I don't go there. Take it for what it's worth.

Yea I have lost a lot of interest in them over the past year or so. They seem to always have high priced strange items like this that no one else has!

I got a flier from 2 Guys advertising that cigar as well.  I've never heard of it.  I think it's the cigar of the year exclusively At 2 guys! :whistling:

They say on their website that there's only one authorized US reseller and it isn't Two Guy's.  If you find them elsewhere they are fake.  Also MSRP is from $50 to $100.

If you click on "where to buy" under US CUBA RICA, INC it you will see the big list and there you will see the 2 guys locations.

At least Fuente had an established reputation as a quality cigar manufacturer before putting out that offering. The same goes for Padron when they released their Millennium line. Both companies are also open about the country of origin of their tobacco.

 

Brand new comapny, secretive about where their tobacco is from, and they can't even bother to attempt to capitalize correctly:

 

"The ATABEY cigars are produced in limited quantities by
the "Selected Tobacco" factory in Costa Rica. The leaves of these
cigars have many origins, they are from caribbean and central america
countries."
 
Meanwhile, the best publicity they have about their cigars is the way their display looks.
 
"Atabey Cigars made its debut at IPCPR 2012 Show, the most important event of the year for tobacconists, Orlando, United States. Selected Tobacco, with its brands Atabey and Byron, won the 1st Price Award for "The best new Stand""
 
If I'm going to take a risk dropping $40-50 on a single stick, it's going to be somewhere with a track record.
