  1. General Pipe Forum
    Its been a long time since Ive smoked cigar blend tobacco and wanted to pick up a tin to revisit this experience. The last tin I smoked was a GL Pease blend in college but I dont recall the name. I thought you guys might be able to make some recommendations for a nice cigar leaf blend. Thanks in...

    Anyone tried the Gurkha Black Dragon since they changed the blend? I'd always heard with the original blend that it was one of the few Gurkhas worth having, but I'm assuming that's no longer the case since they're all over CI specials and Cbid now.

    I've tried the toro vitola and loved it, so I was planning on getting a box, but they're sold out. They do however have the robustos. Couldn't find too much about this particular cigar in the search and wondered if anyone would recommend it. I'm hoping there won't be a big difference in...

    So lets say that you recieve a blend out of a jar from a B&M. And lets say that said blend is a complete dog. Said blend is tasteless and burns your entire mouth - not just a little, but its as if you drank a shot of steaming hot deep fryer grease. Can this blend be saved by adding something...

    The only grandpa that ive got left left us unexpectedly early Tuesday morning. Not only is he the one that I was the closest to, but also the one most responsible for me picking up the pipe. I remember many years ago the smell of his pipes and watching him clean them but its been some time. He...

    I was looking for a good price on a box of the camacho corojo cetros (lonsdale 6.5x44) and I found a box of camacho corojo nacionales (corona 5.5x44) that I couldn't find in stock anywhere else. Did they just discontinue the corona or was there a blend change at some point? I'm debating...

    I usually keep a box of these on hand for work/golf sticks so I was glad that they brought these back. I was going to get a box for next year and I see they are all labled sumatra. I assume this is a change from the wrapper on the older Series P, can anyone confirm? Has anyone tasted and...

    Are there any commercially available cigars that use Perique in the blend of tobaccos? I've made three different types (processed three different ways) and have sent samples out for review (another site). All reviews have been positive except when the Perique was used as a wrapper. I'd like...
