Ok here are sine details about the BOTL DE 2012. There are 200 boxes of 15 in this release. They will be available only through www.Podmancigars.com and there will be a limit of 1 box per person initially. I will ask that you include your BOTL name in the comment section so that I can give a list to Eric of who took part in the project. The cigars are lanceros 7X38 and will have a MSRP of $12.95 each but will be offered in 5-packs and boxes. I will do the best I can to make sure I filter as many boxes as possible to the members here but I fear there maybe a stray here or there which is why your BOTL name is important. Members also use a coupon code botl will knock 10% off the price and boxes will ship for free in the USA. International brothers please contact me separately to take care of your orders.

Now a little bit about the cigar. Many members here are big fans of smaller ring cigars as I am. Until recently DE hadn't done much with smaller sizes. JD and Nicholas worked with me over at DE to make sure the blend worked. We also sent some over to Eric to make sure everything was satisfactory with him since he is the driving force behind all things BOTL. The cigars have now been sitting aging for about 8 months. The brothers on the BOTL Cigar Safari had a chance to sample them when they were in Nicaragua but weren't told what it was when they smoked them. Also, I've shared samples here and there with guys over the course of time and Eric also had some to distribute. The cigar is medium-full to full with the filler being all Nicaraguan. The binder is Ecuadorian Connecticut shade and the wrapper is Connecticut Broadleaf. The wrapper is the same one used on the Feral Flying Pig. I hope everyone will enjoy it as I have and there are a few photos of packaging below.

It has been a pleasure working with Podwika and Eric. Both of these guys rep the BOTL name to the fullest and I thank them for allowing DE to be part of this project. The cigars have been aging for a long time and should deliver for the fellas.
