    Ok guys here it is. If you only could give one cigar to some one that has never had one. To make the most of a first impression and turn them out on cigars for life. Like your ultimate pic up line. LOL. What would it be. :smoke2::smoke2::smoke2::smoke2::smoke2::smoke2::smoke2::smoke2::smoke2:

    Well, I have now had a chance to try GL Pease's Jack Knife Plug thanks to a generous sample sent to me by Owaindav (Thanks Dave!.) Here are my initial impressions based on my first two bowls. The tobacco itself is a beautiful presentation. The sample I received was a small block in...

    Reverie Forest recently sent me a sampler of pipe tobaccos, and I thought perhaps everyone would enjoy reading my impressions of said samples. So without further ado, here's the first I've tried from Reverie's sampler. Well, one bit of ado: I've discovered a trick to smelling a pipe's room note...

    So, after collecting all the bits and pieces, i finally had my first proper smoke! And i must say, it was brilliant. I had a bit of Bob's Chocolate Flake (rubbed out) in a no-name bent dublin, and truly enjoyed it. It sent me into a deep state of relaxation and the taste was very nice. I think...

    It's been out for a while, but today was the first time I got to play with the new S&W 380 Bodyguard. This is obviously Smith's attempt to cash in on the immense popularity of Ruger's LCP. It's a little bigger and a lot heavier, with more metal in the slide. One of the issues with the LCP is...

    Got a 5er of the 6x44's off the devilsite. I just lit up my first one and barely made it through the first half before putting it out. No distinct flavor, bitter, the CT wrapper looks and feels cheap, I hope these get a lot better with some age on them cause in my opinion it was a dog rocket.

    Hey all, So I picked up a 3pack of F's in the 6x50 (I guess a toro) the other day. I've been wanting to try one for a while. My first impression of this cigar is that it is a plain ol' powerhouse. It may have been because I was on my hour long ride home from work and a bit...
  8. Habanos Discussion
    Are those cigars boxed pressed? I just got my box of 25 from a reputable source, and the packaging was ripped. The vacuum sealed bag was cut open (then stitched back up using brown tape). The cigars appear WAY over-humidified (water got in during transport?). The only good news is that this...

  10. General Discussion
    While I have not been a member of this forum very long, I will say that the members I have encountered have all been class acts. I appreciate that people are open about their thoughts, but you are also open to hear a different opinion. That makes for a fun place to share your experiences and to...

    With the passing of Bill Taylor, there has been a lot of speculation about how high his student (Jimmy Craig) would hold the Ashton standard on the metaphorical field of battle, and (sure) I was one of them. I just got a chance to crawl inside and out of a couple of dozen, and while I would...

    I have been interested in tobacco pipes for awhile now so, earlier this week I went out and bought a middle grade economy briar pipe and some Amphora Full Aroma that the Tobacconist recommended I started with. So far I have smoked about five 1/3 to a 1/2 full bowls to break in the pipe and...

    I took a Jameson black label to the herf this past weekend. I received two from Jameson as a trial and they've been in my humidor for a couple weeks, so I was a bit excited to try something new that I've never had or heard of before. From the moment I lit the churchill, I was greatly surprised...

    Recently I was gifted a handful of cigars by a very generous BOTL, among them a Molina Devil's Weed Corona/Corona Gorda. Being a new cigar smoker, for the most part, I decided to give it a try. It had been in the individual's humi for about two months I believe, and I let it rest in mine for two...

    I just received the Hottop yesterday and have roasted 5lbs already with great success from even the first run. I like the construction of this machine and every part can be serviced or replaced by me. It has a 50's retro look crossed with a Kitchen Aid blender yet with a modern twang. I love in...

    I recently went on TAD binge... Im a big fan of Solani 633 and Solani Silver, so i picked up a tin of Aged Burley Flake (and gold label.. but thats another review) Ive never really smoked a burley blend before aside from some aeros and stonehaven. Right off the bat, the packaging is...

    First off, I want to say thanks a million to Ron over at seriouscigars.com. He's a local B&M for me, and a great online retailer for many here. If you haven't checked him out before, please do. Ron gave away 10 full expense paid trips to the big smoke to customers, 5 online and 5 walk-in...

Lets begin wiht Solani Silver. It only comes in 100g Tins, which holds a gold foil bag inside. The...
