  1. General Cigar Discussion
    Ok so first of all I'm a newbie to cigars. I've always enjoyed cigars but never smoked them regularly until more recently. My question however relates to the flavor profiles of certain cigars. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if cigars made by the same company that are the same...

    I've been steering away from the XL ring sizes due to burn issues, but I'm sure that's not the only reason why so many on the forum prefer to avoid them...So forgive me if this a nebulous question, but generally speaking, what is the correlation (if any) between cigar flavor and vitola size...

    I am really enjoying some of the complex flavors that i can experience now that I have quit cigarettes. My favorite has to be the coffee notes. What are some of your favorite cigars with coffee notes or what stick do you reach for when you're craving that coffee flavor? Not including...

    Well, I got my special occasion cigars, yet I am open to opinions on what can become my everyday smoke. This is for the simple fact that I can't afford to smoke $10+ everyday. What are some of your favorite average everyday smokes? I love full flavored sticks, cream, wood, grass, earth, nut...

    When I first started smoking cigars which was late this year my first cigars were CAO Flavours and Drew Estates. And in my opinion they were good. Going to get my girlfriend some for her to start. Seems like some people don't see them as true cigars, but I understand its personal preference. But...

    I'm just wondering how would you guys describe it? It's certainly unique but I can't quite say what the flavor reminds me of. It's just so herbal. Floral? Vegetal?
  9. General Pipe Forum
    Hey guys, So, I'm still fairly new at the whole pipe thing, and I'm digging for something that I've heard might not exist. Then again, you guys might know better: What's a good aromatic-style tobacco that doesn't have a super-mild taste, and doesn't have a rough room note? I'd like to have...

    Left this sitting in my humidor at 66% rH for about a month. It had a good draw, not too hard, not too loose. The flavor's consisted of spice with ... Read the full review here: Alec Bradley Tempus Series quadrum Cigar Review - Great Flavor, but had burn issues

    So you know when you were a kid and had to eat something you didn't want to, you would close off your nose, eat it, and drink it down ASAP. Well, you can cut off your nose from your mouth without squishing your nose-- but rather just by raising the back of your tongue to meet with the roof of...

    As with most Illusione's, they have a very different scent to them. The wrapper was oily, construction was solid, not too firm and not too soft. ... Read the full review here: Illusione 88 Cigar Review - Great flavor, uneven burn

    We've got threads going for creamiest and sweetest cigars you've had and after my smoke last night, I thought I'd ask about the strangest flavor you've experienced in a cigar. For me it was in the Cu Avana Intenso last night that had a very distinct beef from a beef stew flavor for about the...

    I joined this forum a few years ago and for reasons I don't remember quit cigars. Well, I'm back and just as much a newbie looking for advice as before. Last night I read the amazing post "How to refine your pallet". Reading this transformed me from just puffing smoke, to truly enjoying the...

    Hi, I'm a musician who always indulges in a cigar or two whenever I have a rehearsal or gig. It's just a part of my performance ritual, I guess. I have a thing for maduro Montesinos (it's the complexity of flavor in a relatively mild smoke), but even their "Diplomatico" size is too long a...
