I found out from other boards that the guy I bought this from (smokinj) is a scumbag who sold these as Original Release, but are really recent production.
I hope karma bites this dude where the sun don't shine. :mad2:
Well, at least I enjoyed the cigar.
I didn't want to mention it publically but it was the same guy and one of his buddies passing these off to my friend. These and the "OR" Anejos is what they were putting out. If you look at the creases of the cello and notice different shades of yellowing, this is where the "coloring agent" they used to "age" the cello collected and you might be able to notice a concentration of color there. Sorry brother.
