Original release of LFD Factory Press??

I've got a LFD Factory Press in my humi that I believe to be quite old. My B&M had 2 left a few months ago, and I bought one (should have bought both, but didn't have the cash ) I was reading about these the other day, and noticed that it seems as though the releases have been numbered since the original release ie. Factory Press II, FP III and so on...

Mine just says Factory Press, and looks pretty plumed out actually. The plume and the old band with the flower on it is what made me pick it up in the first place, even before I knew much about the brand. Anyone know the approximate age of this thang? I think it's getting torched as soon as my nose recovers from my excessive retrohaling

I think it's 2005, but i wasn't a cigar smoker then... so I can't be sure.

Re: Original release of LFD Factory Press??

Cool! Mine must be an original release, so I guess I've actually made the official transition between rest and age on this guy. I'd take a pic, but I'm trying to keep the humi closed at the moment. It's a bit on the warm side inside my house, so trying to keep things cool in the ole humi. I'll be sure to take pics when it goes up in flames though. I suspect it's gonna be a good one, and I'll probably be kicking myself even more that I didn't buy the other one.

Seems my B&M likes to completely run out of certain brands before re-stocking. This is kinda nice, since it leads to old cigars sitting around in their walk-in. Still, I'd prefer they kept some things in stock!

Re: Original release of LFD Factory Press??

Nubbin this guy right now! Sorry, no pics, camera needs rechargin. Suffice it to say the last 5 years has been good to this cigar...

Opened with nice charcoal, wood, chocolate, and an overwhelming note of cherry! Cherry carried through the first third with the other flavors coming in and out, and tons of chocolate aroma. Think freshly baked brownies... A bit of tongue coating spice as well..

Second third was all about the chocolate and wood notes, but the cherry returned at the end of the third. Really complex cigar, and I'm wishing I had a humi full.

The last third is becoming nutty, with the above flavors moving in and out of the picture, but the cherry is all but gone here.

Only complaint is the burn sucks! Seems that the press is coming unpressed as the cigar burns. It's burned all over the place, canoed, and even tunneled a bit before I got the right puffing rhythm on this thing down. I think time may have been kinder to the press on this smoke if it had stayed in it's press box, and I've seen this happen with other box pressed cigars as time passes. Still, the flavors more than make up for having to babysit this one a bit. It was an absolute pleasure to smoke this cigar, and having now tasted two LFD's with a good amount of age on them (this and a DL Churchill especial with the pigtail) I am seeing a vinotemp of some sort in my future to put sticks away for the distant future's enjoyment.

Re: Original release of LFD Factory Press??

Thanks for the review Landis. I have 5 of the original LFD FP's sitting that I bought from HavanaJohn & havent fired one yet. Nice to know they live up to their hype. :mrgreen:

Refuses to remain the Droid they were all looking for.

Re: Original release of LFD Factory Press??

Yup, the flavor was on point! Just don't let your lighter get too far away.... And be prepared to pay more attention to puffing more often. Who knows? Yours may burn perfectly though!
