    Hi Guys, Just joined and from South Africa. Crazy about Cigars which are subjest to huge excise and tax duties here. Our government has one of the most progressive regulatory regimes and does everything possible to inflate pricing. Get most of my sticks from friends traveling through...

    This cigar pleasantly surprised me. I thought it would be very mild, even a little sweet. It had a nice liguero bite, not too much. It was smooth and flavorful. More med, than mild. The smoke had what I can only describe as a dry taste, kind of like wine is dry. It was pleasant. Burn was...

    I tried the second in the Taboo Line Value Pack last night, the "African Cameroon". Initial draw and burn was perfect! I noted some nice spice and pepper throughout the first 1/3 of the cigar. The entire cigar smoked very smooth with thick white smoke and beautiful thick, solid, light gray...

    The retailers take: Made in Nicaragua, this blend is a work of art. In fact, Don Lino Africa is a cigar you may be tempted to walk over your fellow man to get. It's a complex offering composed of Habano-seed wrappers with long leaf filler tobaccos hail from Honduras, Nicaragua, Dominican...

    So a girl in my masters program is going to Tanzania, Africa for spring break. I did a little research to see what I could give her money to buy me something when she goes....and found this: "Large deposits of Meerschaum was discovered in Tanzania, Africa. The African pipe differs from the...

  12. Coffee Discussion
    I was out of town when my order arrived from Jerry. Last night I finally got a chance to grind and brew a pot of these beans. I'm not a coffee expert. I just really enjoy good coffee. I'm happy to say that this blend and roast is superb according to my unschooled palate. I appreciate Jerry's...

    I stopped by the cigar shop today and the owner was telling me about a new full bodied cigar soon to come out this week. He sampled a stick a few weeks ago and says it's an amazing smoke called Don Lino Africa, and the filler contains African tobacco. African tobacco is used as an outer...

    Ok, time for the 3rd (for me) vitola of the La Luna African Fuerte line that I've tried, the Bantu. This robusto sized beauty came to me courtesy of fvfanmc (thanks Mike!). The construction on this one was excellent. It was nice and firm thoughout with no soft spots or lumps. The wrapper was...

    This is the 2nd vitola of the La Luna African Fuerte line that I've tried. The construction was very good. The wrapper was smooth, without blemished but did seem thinner than usual and tore near the cap prior to cutting (this happened on both that I've had so far). Since I received these from a...

    LLAF Tusk - Till now all I've smoked from La Luna are the LLMF's ( I love these) and LHB lines. Last week I ordered the special sampler pack from Avila, which included the Tusk. The construction was very good. The wrapper was smooth, without blemished and had something around a milk chocolate...
