Seek and Select (Vintage 2016), Black Bag Job 3-Pack Sampler

07/10/2020
Black Bag Job 3-Pack Sampler, Black Bag Job Sampler, Dominican Republic, Indianhead Cigars, José “Jochy” Blanco, Seek and Select, Tabacalera Palma, Vintage 2016 Today was my first time with the “Seek and Select” from La Galera Cigars and I think it’s a keeper! I can’t wait to smoke the other two!

First, I was forewarned about the delicate Dominican Corojo wrapper so I was prepared with amply wetted lips to avoid any tearing… and, it was wonderful!

I am definitely on the lookout for when these are “officially” released… these were from a special promotion from Indianhead Cigars and the La Galera cigar brands in the “The Black Bag Job”… Only 50 of these were distributed locally. SellwoodCigar was one of 25 retailers selected to participate nationally.

This sampler contains three vintage cigars from Jochy Blanco’s library of blends, none of which have been released previously… no specifics of the cigars have been released yet… the average age of the cigars in the sampler are around six years.

So, I heard from the grapevine that the “Seek and Select” cigar will be the first to be released in 5-Packs… I’ve already reserved mine!
