  1. General Cigar Discussion
    I had a horrible experience at one of the many shops around here today. I've been searching for the little shop that I can call my own, and up until today I thought I had found it. However, after lunch today, I'm not really sure I want to go back at all. I'm lucky to live in a place that has a...

    Heading to Washington DC soon for a conference, wondering if anyone could recommend a B&M in this city. So many to choose from so little time
  3. General Cigar Discussion
    I've been doing a ton of reading on here, and something that seems to be a common theme is resting cigars. I'm just getting started, and don't have my humi sorted out quite yet. Maybe by the end of this week, but until then I'm basically resigned to my little 10 stick travel humi. That leads...

    Hey Brethren, I want to share a day I had at my favorite B&M! One of the many things I love about going out to Roanoke, VA to visit my family is hanging out at Milan Tobacconist at 309 Jefferson St. Milan have been in Roanoke since 1912 and are an original Fuente account. They carry a superb...
  5. General Pipe Forum
    So Nov. 1st I'll be driving through Portland towards Lincoln City for my honeymoon and was thinking about getting a new pipe to celebrate the trip. For those in the area in the know, is there any particular shops that I should stop at and browse their stock? I've done a quick google and found...

    So I go to a smoke shop yesterday with my uncle and cousin. Its the one I go to mostly... They ask him for a recommendation, he gave them a few, they got some HP Upmans, I got two Padrons and I got my Dad and Brother a Ti-amo... He says "Stalking up huh?" "I say, "yeah, my sisters weddings...

    I'm looking at an opportunity to run a cigar/beer store, but I've never been "in the biz". Can anyone give me the inside info? PM is ok if you don't want to make anything public. Thanks for any help. buk

  9. California
    Any good well stocked stores in the Los Angeles/Orange County line area? Only been to the one by the house and the selection is terrible. Looking for decent sticks under $5.00 since I've been laid off recently and can't afford anything more. And this is down to 1 or 2 a week if I'm lucky...
  10. General Cigar Discussion
    Hey guys, im curious to hear your thoughts on the online vs B&M thing. for me i have at times been shammed into feeling bad for buying online, but truth be told if it were not for buying online, i probably would have been out of this hobby long ago. i have heard people say that the online...

  13. General Cigar Discussion
    Apparently mine says I can get any two cigars I want, but one has to be the "Shiny" one and says "I'm buying you this. And whatever other one you want. It looks awesome!" By shiny.. well.. She meant this shiny: ..going in.. "Bad! These are for smoking not pissing me off!" :whoo: She also...
  14. General Cigar Discussion
    I went to one in Pennsylvania while i was in upstate New York. Not much of a cigar selection but I bought a 5 pack of a private label Dominican Republic cigars from them... For $10. I was worried because they where to cheap, but they where the best cigars i've had. Any idea who could of made...
  15. New Jersey
    Hello all. As a new cigar smoker I was wondering what places my fellow NJ residents frequent. I live in denville and so far the only place I have visited is the denville smoke shop. The selection isn't huge, but there prices are fair. I know JR isnt far away but I haven't stopped in there yet...
  16. General Cigar Discussion
    I'm sure this has been brought up. I was wondering who buys from exclusively b&m's. I'm one of them that is lucky enough to get prices that are competitive with the web and I support many local b&m's. Furthermore; what makes you make this choice?
  17. General Cigar Discussion
    Just wanted to make a positive comment on B&M's. My fellow puffer jumpmaster is deploying to Afganistan in a week and I wanted to treat him to a good cigar before he left. I took him to Smokey Joe's in Fife Wa. First I bought him a 18 yr scotch. Then I approached the tobacconist Mark and told...
  18. Cigar Questions
    I'm getting ready to visit a nearby B&M for the first time. Can you offer me some tips on simple benchmarks with which to judge the selection and/or pricing of a particular B&M? Por ejemplo, can you name a stick or two that I should look for and perhaps an average price? It obviously would...
  19. General Cigar Discussion
    Do you all ask how long the cigar has been sitting on the shelf at your B&M when you buy? Does this count toward resting or aging time? Might I be able to pick up some mediocre sticks thats have been sitting in a shop for maybe a year or more and have the maturation process already significantly...
  20. General Cigar Discussion
    Any cigars I can buy in a local shop (Massachusetts, New Hampshire) are literally double or triple the shipped price I can buy cigars from Cbid or monstercigar.com (confirmed). I almost feel bad going into these places only to ultimately roll my eyes at the astronomical prices and leave empty...
