    As a microbiology student, I have access to a lot of TSA plates, swabs, and time. So out of curiosity, I swabbed my pipe bit. The culture has a rating of 280 CFU which is almost three times the average "unsanitary" CFU rating. Clean your pipes, fellas. This has been a public...

    I bought the obsidian sampler box with the experiment blends. I really like obsidians to begin with, but I must say, I absolutely love each and every single one of the experiment blends. They're INCREDIBLE (in my humble and/or stupid opinion). Has anyone else here tried these and what did you...

    OK Gents - Phase II of my experiment is underway. 5 Packages in the mail. This time I didn't give any pre warning to the recipients so we'll just have to see where they land. No DC's - just would like to get feedback on how they travelled and arrived condition wise. :yo:

    I am one of the world's biggest fans of MM CC's. I often ask myself while smoking a cob why I ever "wasted'' money on my briars (then I smoke a Sav and the answer is obvious). But I have 2 related issues with them. First, I truly believe that the inventor of paper filters was related to the...

    Yesterday I was sorting through my stuff. I have a lot of random baggies that have tobacco in them, and some of it has gotten pretty crispy. Usually I'll just smoke it anyway, but I decided to experiment a little with rehydrating a sample of Orlik Golden Sliced. I put one and a half flakes...

    I received a beautiful box of CAO Brazilia box pressed in the mail today, and it came with a bonus ... a thriving cigar beetle colony! Four of the 20 sticks are obviously infested, and in one, you can see lots of larvae crawling around. I've only seen one adult, and I think he's dead. I wonder...

    So, i was leaning towards 5 vegas golds - but i was also thinking i could try some kind of cheap house blend, but im not sure which house blend's tend to be better (cigar.com has some decent looking ones) I'm looking to grab a bunch of mild cigars and doing some weird infusion experiments (i...

    So as some of you may know I do enjoy my R.P. vintage 1990 in Churchill size. I did an experiment the other day, to see in reality what aging might do to these cigars and could I really tell the difference. Now I do not boast of the most refined pallet, but like everyone else, I...

    So I was at Goodwill looking around for goodies and came across this for $1.99 (cigars not included). It's my new overflow "jar-i-dor"! The contents of this, however, are the bottom of the humi, worst cigars I own. I had to clear them out of my other 2 humidors to make room for decent smokes...

    Ive been keeping my JDN Antanos at about 65% RH for several months now and still have occasional burn and draw issues, so im in the process of playing around with lower RH just to see how it affects them.. Ive taken 5 churchills and kept them in a small humidor at 57 to 58%..smoked one at 2...
  12. Cigar Accessory Discussion
    I am one to be open to alternatives. I do perfectly fine with my credos, but when I recently had to order some accessories, I purchased 2 bags of 2 oz beads to test. I took a 20 count humidor, that is now empty of cigars. It has been empty for about 2 weeks and the rh has crept up to...

    There exist a number of elements in making an exceptional cigar. Premium leaf tobacco sorted and aged. Mastery in blending, knowing what tobaccos compliment each other. Skill in hand rolling, bunching and placing the wrappers. Ageing I believe that though many cigar makers are actually...
  14. Cigar Accessory Discussion
    I have 5 humidors (3/50's, 100, and a cheap 300 I don't use the drawers on so it holds about 150). I use 65% or 75% beads for humidification. They are stored in a built in linen cabinet that is only used for storing cigars and cigar accessories. All humidors appear to have a good seal when...

    Hey everyone, I was just stuffing around yesterday with my hydrometer and decided to do a little experiment. First I just placed my hydrometer on my bench to see what the rooms humidity was (55% RH). I then grabbed one of my Tupperware containers (which was TOTALLY dry) and placed the...

    So, i'm feeling myself extremely desperate for something to smoke. It's currently 1:56 and i don't feel like sitting by myself outside for an hour plus to smoke a cigar and don't have any more short smokes. So this leaves me to my half tin of mcbaren Plumcake which i bought maybe 5 months...

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,418204,00.html Some scientist are concerned over a test that is going to happen on Wednesday to try and learn more about the big bang theory by slamming sub-atomic particles together at the speed of light. Those opposed to the test fear that it could create...

    My experiment was to listen to a playlist on my iPhone to determine if mellow music and harder music would effect the taste of a given cigar. I randomly selected the Gurkha Nepalese Warrior to pair with a selected playlist. I clipped the cap and applied the flame while Johnny Cash's version of...

    So I was browsing vitolas.net and came across this image of a AF hemingway signature that had been unwrapped and outfitted with an ecuadorian sun grown wrapper. The owner of the box of Hemi signatures had found a former fuente roller willing to do this. I found this a novel idea, playing with...

    To make a not so long story even shorter, I've been ignoring the needs my tobacco collection to the point of abuse. I have a plethora of tobacco samples and tins just sitting in the sun all day drying out with no protection. After a couple of drinks the other night I thought it a good idea to...
