With regards to tobacco, I smoke only Scottish ribbon from The Connoisseur pipe shop that I usually buy infrequently, in large quantities...

    I was in the gents at work and found an issue of FHM. While perusing it for some nipples, I stumbled across this guide. I thought I'd share the knowledge with you. Montecristo No. 4 They refer to the 'classic Montecristo flavour' which is then described as smoking crushed Terry's chocolate...

    Anyone ever tried one of these sticks? I picked up a box last July and found them to be a typical, well made H. Upmann. I wasn't blown away with the few I smoked last Summer/Fall. I've been looking for a good morning commute stick now that my late night stick-time has been curtailed with...

    I received a box of Bishop (Toros) the other day and these come un-celleod with no bands. They look really nice with a chocolate brown wrapper and all the cigars seem to be packed perfect (i.e., not too tight and not too loose). The Bishop sized toro is pretty solid and one of the larger toros...
