Can you find Firestone Union Jack locally? Firestone actually brews Pliney for Russian River. They brew each other’s beers during upgrades to the facility. Those two beers are VERY similar to one another.
Never heard of it or seen it.

I just did a search at the best source for obscure, single bottle availability in this area and both Pliney and Firestone pulled up zero availability.

Is there a total wine or BevMo nearby? They can both order you some. Not sure about BevMo & Pliney but both can do the Firestone.

If you’re in the states & the TW & BevMo order doesn’t work out, shoot me a PM, we’ll get you squared away ?

Gotta love doing business with small family businesses. Today I placed an order at Stogies WC Cigars to get a box & an H-Town variety pack as part of my brother’s birthday. About 20min later a Houston number is calling me. It’s Stogies. Guy says he just dropped of my order but instead of the Four Kicks box he shipped a Fratello. Then he says it’s no problem & that they’re shipping out the Four Kicks in the morning & to have my brother enjoy both. Great service at that place.

Anyway, tonight is a MF #4 Lancero

I've only experienced 2 varieties of Tatuaje (via the devil's site) and both were extremely strong ligero. Strongest cigars I've smoked actually.
If you look to the ones with Ecuadorian Habano or Connecticut wrappers, they will be in the mild to medium range. A few of the Ecuadorian Habano varieties can creep into the med-full range but won’t be overpowering

I like medium full actually, it's just those two that I tried were a bit over the top. I love me some #9's and Le Bijou's.

If you want to try a smaller family owned brand that does everything from farm to rolling & curing, try Aladino.

Solid Med:
Aladino Habano Vintage Selection LE Cigars Elegante (7x38) (atlanticcigar.com)

Solid Med:
Aladino Corojo Cazador (6x46) | Atlantic Cigar Company

Full to Extra Full lol:

A bit mild for my tastes. Wasn't bad though.
AB’s have been hit or miss for me. Ecuadorian Habano wrapper sticks I do enjoy but they really step it up between 40-50rg. I know you’re a full flavor/strength guy though.

I am not the biggest fan of Plasencia. Not saying they aren't good. But, for the price I can find sticks I like more for less. However, a customer gave me a new Placencia 151. That was a nice stick. And, not as expensive as most of their other blends.

I’m that way with several LE sticks from most brands. Prefer the regular brown label to the reserve from Tatuaje, regular Padron 26 vs the 80yr, etc…

So I’m pretty sure I got this Fratello in a trade back home in SLO.
