    Came across this today. Pipe smoking alien crop circle someone created near the White Horse of Cherhill. Thought it might give some of you a smile. Here's a link to an article on the image: Crop circles: Now even ET is at it (with a little help from mircowaves and GPS) | Mail Online

    Sometimes it takes several weeks for the damn things to get ripe. Other times a bunch ripen at the same time. No matter, they are always prickly. Now I just have to figure out what to do with them. Any ideas? Canarywood, Cocobola, Kingwood , Purpleheart, Bacote, Birdseye Maple

Those of you in the New England area remember just how much rain we had this Spring and the first...

    Here are a couple of pics of the crop.:smoke: The first is a short section of two rows. It looks like about 17 or 18 plants are showing in each row. Each full row contains 45 plants.

    Here are a couple of pics. One is of the tobacco hanging in the barn still has to cure awhile longer. The other is my son holding one of the leaves. Notice the brown on the lower tip that is how the whole leaf needs to be before fermentation. A few more weeks. I don't know why it won't post...

    Not talking about your grandpa's cough medicine. I was watching the news last night and they did an interview with the owner of Weidekehr Wines. It seems this last little cold snap really did a number on the local wine crop. Was this just isolated to our area or has any of the other wine regions...

    Ok, So I've had this talk with Marc (OpusEx) and a few other guys before. I'm wondering however what some of your own personal experience has been in regards to the aging potential of some of the recent batches of Cuban Tobacco. I'm talking '03, '04, '05 stuff. Now as we all know the recent...

    i met "mons" the other day at lcdh in club havana... he said the artificial aging of the new crop is a disaster... the wrappers are scarred - he was very pissed off to say the least. what's worse, the artificial aging was done to the entire crop!

    I came across this article, and thought you all may be interested. It concerns the upcoming tobacco crop in Cuba.
  16. Habanos Discussion
    I've been surprised to find that some of the cigars I've recently smoked with late '03 dates have been exceptionally good when compared to the same brand from '01 or '02. Is it my imagination or would other people concur that some of the smokes coming from that Island South of Miami with box...
