Lastly, the Anastasia line is getting an updated wrapper. The previous wrapper that was being used ran out, so they started using a higher priming instead. To make the change easy for customers to identify, a new secondary band is being used that is blue instead of green. Other than that nothing is changing – same types of tobacco, sizes and pricing as before.

About the author

I have been smoking cigars since 2005 and reviewing them as a hobby since 2010. Initially I started out small with a 50-count humidor and only smoking one or two cigars a month. Not knowing anybody else that smoked cigars, it was only an occasional hobby that I took part in. In March of 2010 I joined Nublive and Cigar Asylum, connecting me with many people who also shared an interest in cigars. Reading what they had to say about brands I had never heard of, I quickly immersed myself in the boutique brands of the industry and it was then that cigars transformed from a hobby into a passion. Besides my cigar hobby and job in the IT industry, my wife and I love traveling, trying new restaurants and relaxing at home with our two dogs.
