    nice one Brian!

    was it a $1.50 per quarter inch that we figured?

    I’m glad I have one, but I don’t really want to smoke it, because I’m afraid I might like it, and be compelled to buy more. Its a cool stick, and the simple fact they are rolled by one guy, and you can find left handed rolled and Right-handed rolled versions… is really awesome.

    but I can’t Justify what some shops sell these for ($17+) for what amounts to (in your opinion) just a good short smoke.
    I’d rather unload that $17 on a 5er of RPSG’s

    Rich,

    Yeah, I think the math actually breaks down to $1.50 per half inch. (Maybe I actually paid $11.95 for it… Can’t remember for sure.)

    I think the Reverse Between The Lines is considerably rarer than the normal BTL. But yeah, these special Fuente smokes are pretty dang cool.

    I hear you on the price. I have a hard time justifying MSRP, and it’s a rare shop that sells them at that price. (Even rarer that one sells it for under MSRP.) They’re a novelty. A fun smoke for a fun time of year. And a temptation when we’re under the influence and giving spirit (and regular spirits) of the holidays.

    Phenomenal review. I’ve never had a Between the Lines, though the Short Story is most definitely a superior stick.

    On a side note, the gouging of prices on sought-after Fuente fare is something I find chronically annoying. Sure, they’re great smokes, and sure, exclusivity is an excellent marketing tactic, and sure, supply and demand dictate price, but…well, I guess I don’t know where I’m going with this.

    It seemed like the low price I found them locally for was $16, and the high being $20

    I’d like to know where you got your $12 one brian lol… I can’t bring myself to smoke the one I have, which is rolled opposite of the one you reviewed, I wonder which one is the “reverse”?

    A BM in St. Paul had these for $35.00. I was surpised they had them, then suprised at how over priced they were. The anejos were much more reasonable…..

    Why pay that much when you can get an anejo instead. Or a padron anniversary.nice in the collection but that’s it
