I like the story behind the company, the presentation of the cigars, and the blend details I have seen for their lines....

Vitola Battle: German Engineered Cigars Autonom Lineup Pack

German Engineered Cigars was founded by three German Engineers - makes sense. Their first release was in 2016 and shared the original name of the company - “RVGN Rauchvergnügen”. The name of the company was changed to the current one in 2020, and they have since added a few more cigars to their portfolio. This year they introduced a new line entitled “Autonom” that would contain limited editions, unique size, experimental blends, and projects. The most recent of these projects is the Autonom Lineup Pack, which is an opportunity for consumers to engage with the company and take part in...
