  1. General Cigar Discussion
    I recently purchased some Maria Mancini robusto largas because Manny repeatedly praises the brand on this forum. I did not know that they were boxed-pressed to a wafer-like shape. This cigar that is much wider than it is high, and I found that it fits between my fingers so comfortably while...
  2. General Cigar Discussion
    Quick question: It is commonly held that cigars from different vitolas in the same line have different flavour profiles. I've believed that this really meant RG is the only important variable not length of the cigar due to wrapper/filler ratio. Are there any members here who have...
  3. General Pipe Forum
    Is there much difference when it comes to smoking a short pipe versus a long pipe?
  4. Habanos Discussion
    Have you noticed how most (not all) CCs are sometimes shorter and most times thinner than their non CC counter parts? Most CCs I see are 40-44 ring gauge and 4-6 inches. I see far more non CCs in 48-52 ring and 5.5" to 8" in length. Could the ring gauge be justified in a way, by the wrapper...
  5. General Pipe Forum
    I was just looking around for my first pipe and I was wondering if this has ever been discussed before? I know the length of a smoke is different from person to person and that person's mood is also a variable. A small bowl is a small bowl you're just not going to get the same time on it as you...

    I tried searching for this with no luck. Am I doing a disservice to my cigar's flavor by knocking off the ash every inch or so? Does the ash length have any effect on flavor? Thanx for the help!
  7. General Cigar Discussion
    Hey folks, I have been doing an awful lot of research on this subject lately, mainly because my wife is pregnant with twins and can smell every single thing! Of course it doesn't help that I now have an hour commute each way and I smoke in the morning, at lunch, AND on the drive home. Many of...
  8. Habanos Discussion
    I was sifting through the humi the other day when I came these two Montecristo 2003 EL "C" cigars. I knew I had one (a gift), in there but was surprised to see the second one. (I can't remember where I got it from) Anyway, when I put them side by side, I noticed one was 3/8" longer than the...
  9. Site Help and Suggestions
    I wonder if it's possible to shorten the word length to 3 characters. Sometimes I can't do a proper search with the 4 character min. If I wanted to search for "Avo 787" for example.

  11. General Cigar Discussion
    How's this for a piece of ash?:D Before it failed, it was (see pic) 10 cm (slightly less than 4 inches) long! Any takers? :hn B.T.W., the test subject was a Macanudo Prince Philip, 7.5 x 49 (Man, I gotta' get a LIFE!) _______ Disclaimer: 1. No photographic tricks were employed in this...
  12. Cigar Questions
    Just a quick question about shipping length. If it takes my package of cigars 6-8 days to get to me should I be worried about it being overly dryed? Usually a 3-4 shippment is a little dry so I'm concerned about a 6-8. Any suggestions? thanks
  13. General Cigar Discussion
    What are the general characteristics to smoking one size or an other? For example, pick any brand and start with a small ring size, what will be the difference in the cigar compared to the same length only with a LARGER ring size. Same thing with length. How does the experience change when you...
