I am hoping to buy some of these Anejo cigars this Christmas, but the price listed at the start of this thread and the price at the link above are quite different. How much should I expect to pay for these? I just don't want to pay too much ;)

You don't want to go supporting the like of Gougers like these. Just keep searching here and on other sites. Make some friends here, and it just might pay off. :whistling:

Another good way is to get in good with a local B&M. Spend some time there, and support the buisness. Mine said he does not know what he is going to get this year, but said he would set some Anejo aside for a couple of others and myself.

cigar.com is not an authorized Fuente distributor - they purchase their Anejo's at MSRP and mark them up to resell.

The prices listed in this thread are MSRP, not including local and state taxes. Personally, I am happy to pay a few dollars premium over MSRP if necessary - but everyone has their own tolerance for mark ups over MSRP.

With the holidays approaching, the Fuente Anejo annual release is fast approaching. Go to www.cigarfamily.com and research their authorized retailer database for shops in your area. Also, the trading forum here is always a great place to keep an eye out. In either case, they go very fast when available, so timing is everything. Good luck !

I agree I don't want to promote someone who would jack the prices so far up. The only reason I buy online is to save money, but I only do that about 20% of the time. I have met all the folks at the local shops around here and got close with 1 or 2 of them. I'm hoping to get some from them, locally.

1 Don Calros Robusto

Picked up one these yesterday and upon inspection and the age of the humidipak (it was as hard as a rock) I can tell that these are not a new rolling and release. I'd assume that they are left overs from the original release of this sampler. Would my assumption be correct?

BTW these smell beautiful

I went to my local shop last night and they had one of the red humidors sitting out since they had an event. Its filled with all the original cigars that came with the humidor and they are selling it for $5000, which is a good price considering that when it first came out in 99 it was $5000.

If anyone is from the Houston area, there is a shop (doesn't do online business) that picked up Fuente before they were popular. He's an established guy whose been doing business for over 20 some years. This year he got over 12 boxes of Anejos and 5 boxes of the Maduro Hemingway and also always receives 5 or more boxes of Opus each distribution period. HE sells all at MSRP, nothing over 15$ after tax, including the Anejo #77 aka "Shark" Though, he does limit the # you can purchase per day/ visit so everyone gets a chance.

Personally I took complete advantage of his shipments this year and walked away with alot of these very nice respected and premium cigars. Want to put some age on them however. Just keep a heads up for Lonestar Tobacco if your in the houston area around distribution times and holidays. Cheers all!

I agree with Gary here, I was thinking the same thing earlier today. See if anyone has the up to date sheet so we can update the information.
