    That is right folks...this normall calm/collected Red Sox fan is getting impatient with the lack of production with the 2011 Boston Red Sox and their current (good for last in all of baseball) 2-9 record. Lets all come up with a list of things that didn't live up to the hype (like the Sox, thus...

    I guess it has to do with the "forbidden fruit" factor. Personally, I feel there are many better tobaccos to be enjoyed and at a much lower cost too! Being from Canada, I have travelled to Cuba many times and have had the opportunity to taste even the lesser known brands, to the surprise of...

    So I smoked my first Opus today, and I didnt really enjoy it to tell ya the truth. It started out a tad spicy, but that went away, and what I get was a sensation Ive never had before. It was like the smoke was really heavy, as in weight, on my tongue, with a very strong taste of I guess...

    I'm curious if Gurkha is as good as most have touted themselves in advertising and descriptions. I've heard mostly good things and I know I like a full bodied cigar, just not sure I want to get them if they're going to be a let down in the end. My local B&M has the G3, G5 Avenger, Evil's in...

    I was thinking of picking up one for this weekend, but I have no idea if these are good right off the shelf, should they rest for a while, what size is the best, or what the flavor profile is. I'm a stout full bodied cigar man, and I don't want to waste my money and time on something that I...

    This cigar was good, but I think its been overrated. It reminded me a lot of the RP Edge Maduro. In fact, it even had the band on the foot. Flavors... Read the full review here: Oliva Cain Robusto Maduro Cigar Review - Good cigar, but not equal to the hype

    The thread title pretty much says it all...which smokes (which are popular and highly reviewed) did you find to be anything but great? For me, it is Oliva V. I have smoked both the original blend and the maduro...and as much as I wanted to like them, I didn't. I know MANY people out there...

    I hope I got a dud because it was almost flavorless, spice and thats about it. And even the spice wasnt very strong. Burn was jagged and had to be touched up a lot, draw was too loose. The V blows the Cain away in all aspects in my opinion. Has anybody else not been impressed by the Cain? Should...

    I have only been smoking cigars for a few months now but have broadened my horizons rather quickly. When I first started out I enjoyed mild to medium bodied cigars such as Montecristo's. After joining this site I learned more about the vast majority of shapes, flavor profiles, brands, etc. I...

    I have to say I've been smoking mostly Cubans lately, but I'm really enjoying a Benchmade Cazadore - Pepin blend. Watching Canada deliver a butt kicking to Germany in the Junior's with a nice cold Stella Artois. We're hosting the games here in Ottawa this year, but I'm watching it from home...

    I am not rum snob, but I have had my share, but given my location I have only read the "ads" for Havana Club rum from the island.. Is the rum held in highest regards like the smokes? or can you make a comparison to what is available here?:cb
