They retail for $6 to $10 each and production is limited to just 1,000 boxes per size and a total production of 100,000 cigars. The Namakubi comes packed 20 to the box, except for the Papi Chulo, which comes in a 50-count cabinetta style box.

FEATURED LIBATION: Big Bear Black Stout from Bear Republic Brewery
Big Bear, as the name implies, is a hefty, black, Russian Imperial-style stout, though it is classified as American Stout. Big Bear’s bold flavors are produced using a blend of Belgian and English roasted barley and crystal malts. And the brew is well hopped with Chinook and Cascade hops.

This beers weighs in at 8.1% ABV and ranks a 55 on IBU. A 55 ranks pretty high, so this is likely to have some hoppy bite to it. These beers are sold in 22oz. bottles and in kegs.
