    I got this Por Larranaga Petit Coronas Cabinet of 50 and my retailer told me that these are quite rare. I don't know what happened to my photo camera so we can't see box code(it's EMA JUN 08 as far as I remeber) and Habanos certificate :mad:

    Was this whole thing some kind of "dream sequence?" My wife swears I didn't fall asleep... so it couldn't have been a dream.. could it?

    OK, so nobody likes to talk about what they can't nail down for sure, cooking tobacco, changing curing techniques, whether or not there's aged tobacco in the blend, and most, what happens to our old paradigm (sorry) for aging cigars if they change everything. I am on record in several forums...
  6. Want to Sell/Trade (WTS)
    I've got a few really rare pre-embargo Clear Havanas that are available. I wasn't going to sell any of these yet, but I need the extra cash flow after my cell crashed on me. The prices are tight and better than you'll find just about anywhere. All items have all been inspected and are in...

    Interesting article in Cigar Buyer magazine (Autumn 2006 issue...bought some old issues)...the main point being the concern if the American market opens up and quality issues which can be improved with technology....but much of that has been beaten to death on the boards. On to the point...

    Anyone ever do this? I'm sure some folks have. I work away from home most of the time but try to keep at least a box in the mail every week. So tomorrow I'll most likely be driving about 8 hours out to Ohio. Just curious what would happen if I got pulled over with a large cooler full of my...

    Will Havanas from 1963-end of the embargo be forever illegal? Pre-embargo Cuban leaf is legal and has always been. What I am curious about is, just as tobacco is legal today because it was legal before the embargo, will tobacco that was grown, packaged, dated, or brought to market during the...

    as opposed to aged or vintage? A while back I had a PM conversation with someone I have come to respect over the years here. He doesn't post often but when he does his analysis, opinion, and discussion tends to be spot on IMO. I will paste in a few things he had to say which happened to take me...

    I think the following article has been posted some years back, but since we have many new members, I thought you may enjoy reading this debate and the interesting fact that it has been going on for more than 80 years! The site has other articles of...
  13. General Cigar Discussion
    ok, is it just me or do cuban cigars, in general, seem to have more filler leaf than NCs (in general)? by this, i mean - cubans seem to last longer. here are two examples: - a Monte #2 vs a NC La Gloria Cubana Torpedo #1. these cigars have almost exactly the same dimensions (6 1/8 x 52)...

    Just got my copy today. Holy crap what a book! It's as big as the bible! Great book, tons of pictures, loads of backround info, and some tasting notes. Quite a few brands in there I didn't know about. This is a wonderful source of info, a must have for all you havanaphiles.

    I am thinking of picking up some aged cigars. Are there any years to look out for good or bad?

    LLGs, I will be traveling to Cartagena. Can anyone recommend a reliable store for Havanas? No La Casa del Habanos there. ... rjs

    I ran across this article on counterfeit Havanas on the CubanBest website, the URL is . So far it's been one of the most comprehensive article that I've read on the subject anywhere. I'd like to get some feedback on what others...

    Compared to Havanas stored under ideal conditions, what taste differences do you observe when Havanas have been stored (intentional or unintentional) in over humidified or under humidified conditions? I'm talking about at least several weeks of storage at, for example 62% RH or 75% RH. ... rjs
