There was a DE event last night at a newish B&M that featured the only west coast B&M appearance of this particular vitola. I went for kicks and when I saw how much they were asking for them, I passed, since they were selling them by the 5 or 25 pack and UC corona vivas were the same price. If they had some singles, I would have probably gotten one just to try it once, but for the same price, I don't see them being a better value than a UC corona viva, of which I bought 3. I actually have yet to even try any of the widely available MUWATs, but plan to grab one next time.
From your review, it sounds like a fantastic cigar that's right in my wheelhouse, but I already can get cigars that exhibit a similar profile for 1/3 the price that are a bit larger (5x42 or 5.5x44) and a better value. I don't begrudge DE a bit, since a good part of that cost are the !@#$%^ taxes here in California, and DE has proven to be a company that is not in the business of gouging it's customers.
Thanks for the review!
