  1. General Cigar Discussion
    Someone needs to do a science project on the effects of freezing your cigars at 0c degrees vs sub 0c. Allot of people still have older refrigerators, and their temps never get to -20c and -30c..with the colder temps ,you don't need to put them in the frig after freezing (My experience only) I...

    OK, so I'm sitting here, wondering if pure tobacco has some mild pschyotropic properties that science has not yet pinpointed? I'm going to disqualify cigarettes, as there are so many additives that if there is an effect it's most likely lost. But if you think about the origins of smoking...

    Say some cigars were resting for two years by a buddy and were gifted to you. If you froze those cigars before putting them in your humi would it completely reverse the rest that they have? If not, how much effect would it have on the two years rest?

    I was reading an e-book, tailored to beginners, about cigars. It stated something to the effect of when smoking longer cigars, it is cooler, and this tends to be more enjoyable for beginners *USUALLY*. Obviously not always. So my question is, I found the big sticky list of "must trys" should I...

    I know that aging can bring out great flavors but, as I indicated in the thread "What are you smoking right now", I have had this Hoyo de Monterrey excalibur for about 10 years and it's always had the best of care. It was one of a group of cigars given to me a long time ago that I placed into...

    I have smoked cigars for 40 years, purchasing just a few at a time, and never knowing one from the other, other then what I liked, and never having a humidor, I have several humidors now. And we are only talking about a month and a half altogether. One fo the first ones was the cheapo...

    I'm hoping we all agree to suffer equally - right now it looks like $0.40 per stick on cigars - if the manufacturer, distributor and retail shop each take $0.10 hit I have no problem paying another dime. Let's face it - the consumer isn't the one at risk here - the manufacturer, distributor and...

    Alrighty, I live in the sunny state of CA. Where in the summer we average at least 80°F. I do not have AC in my house, I just open the windows. I cannot keep the temp of my humi lower than 80 degrees right now, no matter where I store it. I have tried in my liquor cabinet, in my kitchen...

    The US Senate is preparing to move a bill out of committe that would compel the FDA to regulate cigarettes and, by extension, cigars. I say 'compel' because published reports indicate that the FDA does not want to be put in the position of deciding what would make a cigarette 'safe'. The only...
  11. Cigar Questions
    I did much searching through the internet and forums about this subject. It seems to me that the main concern with temperature is: High Temperature (68F and above): 1. Bugs Low Temperature (61F and below): 1. Harder to maintain humidity. 2. Slows the aging process. 3. Kills some of the cigars...

    Last week, I smoked more than my usual quota of 2-3 per week. I smoked a stick everyday, 7 days in a row (finally had some extra time :) ) and I noticed something different. More phlegm in my throat area. A vague feeling of mucus build-up in my chest area. Nothing else. I don't think I had a...

    I busted out a Party Short this afternoon figuring on a short smoke (it is getting colder out). I inspected the foot of the cigar, checking the fill, seemed a bit low but then I wasn't in the mood for a hernia inducing smoke so I was pretty pleased. I do have a set of Henry Tools, but even...

    Hey all, I noticed something over the weekend and thought I would share. Since I have only been smoking since January, I have been trying to get my palate to recognize the different nuances from stick to stick. Getting a little better, but I know it takes time. So, the wife & I hit our...

    ... and no, I'm not talking about me here. Although today I feel about 20years older than I should. When I first started smoking cigars it was on a "as Iget em" basis and would only get a couple of spears to sit in the humi (a tupperdor) that I had at the time. However they didn't last long...

    OK, so I've been reading some of the reviews and I've also drawn a few questions from my own personal sampling experiences. The first question is in regards to some of the posts that I see when someone else references someone getting sick/spewing/ or feeling crappy after smoking a cigar. The...

    I was doing some searching on the site for some new cigars, and came across someone saying that if you drink coke, or something of the sort with a cigar, the sugar in the drink eliminates the effects of the nicotine. Does this mean the overall effect of it, or the immediate nausious feeling you...

    Since the summer heat rolled in, have you smoked any less? I find the high heat and humidity have decreased my cigar consumption by about fifty percent so far this summer. Beginning to wonder if I'm alone in this.
