  2. General Pipe Forum
    Good Afternoon Fellow Pipers and Cigar smokers alike. :) I just wanted to share my recent experience with you, as we all enjoy being treated right by any company we purchase a product from or have customer based transaction with. We all have bitched about the bad experiences we have, so in good...
  3. Cigar Accessory Discussion
    Just wanted to toss out a few things I've learned over the past few months with a 1200 count temp regulated humi and kitty litter (KL). I was going to add it to the KL thread but with 1500 replies it gains a new page every couple days so people who run into the same questions/issues may never...

    Hey all BOTL...just had to write about my experience yesterday, as the cigar truly brings us all together... so, due to the storm here in NY, my school was closed and I had an unexpected day off! So after dropping my boy off at daycare, I had the entire day wide open in front of me....wow. What...

    Cigar smokers are definitely a breed apart. After work today went for a walk downtown Montreal, looking for a lounge to have a smoke. Stopped at a shop and picked up a RyJ No. 2, Paratagas, and CAO Maduro. Found a restaurant that was advertising Cigar Lounge on second floor. Walked in ask the...

    I saw a thread about problems with an online auction site. So I thought I would share me and my wife's expereince with Verizon. Like the title says this is our expereince....we are actually still customers amazingly enough. Dear Sir, I am writing to convey my utter disgust in the dealings that...
  8. General Cigar Discussion
    So, I went into dangerous waters tonight. I got a Zippo (I've ALWAYS thought Zippos were the COOLEST lighters) as a gift from a friend who doesn't know TOO much about cigar smoking. I took the gift and was very thankful for it, and it definitely holds a place in my heart, but I was hesitant to...
  9. Non-Habanos Reviews
    So, my buddy over here got the weekend blitz a couple weeks back that included a box of UNholy Cocktail's as well as a 6pk of Unlimited's. He invited me over tonight to smoke one of the UC. Sorry I don't have pics as I was smoking in the dark here in Iraq. Pre-light Inspection: Perfectly...
  10. Cigar Questions
    Alright, this has been bugging me. On Friday (when the Heat Index was 105) I smoked a Gran Habano Vintage 2002 that Shuckins sent me. It was a completely uneventful smoke and I've been trying to figure out why. The cigar had no real discernible flavors to it. I picked up a bit of spiciness...

    I just completed a transaction with another BOTL, and it was the first time using Amazon payments for both of us. Using a bank acct, payment was initiated 7/10, money removed from sender's bank acct 7/12, arrived at receiver's Amazon acct 7/16. Will subsequent transactions go faster, or...
  12. Retailer/For Profit Sales Forum
    Last Friday I ordered a lighter from StogieBoys.com. When the package arrived on Monday, I discovered that they sent me the wrong model. Slightly annoyed considering that it cost nearly half as much as the one I had actually purchased, I put in a call to their customer support. Within ten...

    You have to be prepared for something different - I was a big fan of the unique flavor and the aromatic smell. The shape lends to a wonderful smoki... Read the full review here: Acid Nasty Cigar Review - A unique and enjoyable experience

    I ordered a pipe off of Iwan Ries's website last Sunday, and even with the Monday holiday they got the pipe to me today! First time I've ordered from them. Anyone do regular business with them?
  16. Habanos Discussion
    Today I experienced my first Behike. It was an amazing gift from an amazing person(Starbuck). I'm not one who can point out flavors and nuances but let me say this, it was the most enjoyable cigar I have ever lit. Maybe it was part mystique, but I reckon it was mostly top notch quality cigar...

  19. General Cigar Discussion
    Two nights ago I set out on what has been a fairly regular nightly routine. After I help get the kid to bed I go into my humidor and pick out a smoke for the night. I then get the dog's (Matrix) leash and blanket and head out onto the front porch to relax for an hour. I'm an older fart who is in...

    So I have a supplier that "has the good stuff" so I jet out of work today to meet said person to get some of "the good stuff". He shows me some samples and they look real nice! So I go a head and buy a box from him, when I got home and opened the box I was shocked :jaw: This was not even a...
