I tried BnB because a friend recommended them to me. The prices here are great and the selection is outstanding, but I donÕt like paying for shipping. I ordered these La Primadora Emperors because they are one of my favorites. I did not get my hopes up, as I truly believed they would not be the same. But I was pleasantly surprised when they arrived. They smelled wonderful and were so fresh I would have thought they had been flown directly from the tobacco fields. This cigar is smooth and well bodied. It did not lose anything in the shipping process. This was a good switch.
