    I find this to be an example of, "just because you can, doesn't mean you should".

    I just shake my head in disgust as i'm seeing MANY lines releasing this. You're effing kidding me right? 7x70 is so stupid its ridiculous. I've been disgusted with the 6x60 crap, now its getting more ridiculous. Find it really hard to believe the market is demanding this of the manufacturers but eh whatever. I think i've heard a blend by Quesada has done it, and I know those Schizo cheapo sticks have a 7x70.

    Maybe manufacturers are intentionally jumping the shark here. Maybe they'll keep releasing bigger until someone's jaw actually breaks or looks in the mirror and realizes it looks like a big fat veiny c*ck and everyone starts reaching for lanceros out of sheer fear and shame.

    nah...just marketing...

    Jaime Garcia makes a 5.7x66 Reserva Especial, which I picked up one day at my B&M and smoked. While the flavor profile was good as to be expected with a JG, it didn't burn well at all. I was constantly touching it up and having to relight it. A 70 gauge just sounds like to much trouble than it's worth.

    One retailer that we all avoid has a stick they call the "Emperador", that measures a gargantuan 15" x 70 ring ...and people smoke it and post pics of them smoking it!


    cigars and bass fishing...life is good!

    nahhh .... this one's just pure marketing hype....

    Personally I'd hold out for the (I'm making this up but wouldn't be surprised to actually see it) Limited Edition 8x80, now that would be a true collector's gem right there. Might want to buy a few boxes of such an awesome smoke....

    Not sure what all the fuss is. I enjoy 6x60's regularly. If I'm going to pay the money for a cigar I'm going to get the most bang for the buck. The MUWAT by Drew Estate is 7x60 and quite good. Burns well and tastes good all the way down. 7x70...can't wait to try it!

    Reminds me of those huge jawbreakers you get at the candy store in the mall. The white ones with little colored specks on them. You could lick on those things for days (yeah yeah thats what she said.) Great in theory but just not practical.

    How long does a 7x70 take to smoke? 3 hours? 3 and 1/2 hours?

    Most of my money I spent on whiskey and women. The rest I just wasted.
