These guys followed me on IG yesterday and I spent a bit of time going through their online shop to check them out. Their prices seem reasonable and although a pretty cigar isnt necessarily a good one they have some great looking wrapper art that would make interesting gifts for the guys at work.

My initial online searches didn’t dig up much. Do they have a reputation (good or bad) to be aware of?

Don't have any opinion of my own on them, but heard that opinions from good for what they are to me. I would like to hear your thoughts on them as well if you do decide to purchase.

I recommend you look into tabacalera aragon. Straight from factory, same kind of business model as HBD only difference I think is Aragon has farms that grow their own tobacco. I think they are newer, and they do private label for cigars. One of the brands they do is Jas Sum Kral, which scored pretty decent on blind man puffs top 25 ratings.

I'm expecting cigars from them on Monday, I'll let you know how they are.

Hey guys,

The cigars from aragon came in today and so far the Ecuadorian habano 7.5 x 50 is legit.

Compared to a Nicaraguan overrun, this cigar blows it out of the water. Even though they came dry and I'm smoking it rott, it is not bitter at all; It's actually pretty complex and well balanced. I don't want to hype them up too much, bit they are definitely worth a try.

Hey buddy,

I'd say give aragon or house blends direct a try. I do not know your flavor preferences or what you look for in a cigar so try out a sampler; they're cheap and ship pretty fast.

If it means anything I already plan to purchase from tabacalera aragon in my next cigar order. I actually look forward to smoking these sticks.

Nice. I was actually looking at them yesterday. I almost purchased the habano and San Andreas. But they only had boxes in the San Andreas and wanted to try out 5 packs. When you purchase, want to cut in on a couple of boxes? I like full bodied cigars btw.

You're going to have to help me out here buddy, I have never traded or sent out a package to another forum member. I have no problem sending you out a 5 pack though.

Send me a pm and we can work out details from there
