  1. General Cigar Discussion
    Being a newbie I have been buying local for about 3 months and I am starting to think, maybe I should be buying online instead due to the fact it is a lot cheaper. So what do you guys choose to do online or local?

    Hey all BOTL...just had to write about my experience yesterday, as the cigar truly brings us all together... so, due to the storm here in NY, my school was closed and I had an unexpected day off! So after dropping my boy off at daycare, I had the entire day wide open in front of me....wow. What...

    So I go to a smoke shop yesterday with my uncle and cousin. Its the one I go to mostly... They ask him for a recommendation, he gave them a few, they got some HP Upmans, I got two Padrons and I got my Dad and Brother a Ti-amo... He says "Stalking up huh?" "I say, "yeah, my sisters weddings...

    I had gotten in touch with Troy a few weeks back inquiring about his Draw Tools and come to find he out he lived in the same town as me.... We talked once about the draw tool and another things and kept in touch over the last few weeks. I just met up with him today at our local Ltd. Cigar...

    Obviously, I'm a total noob here, so put me in my place if I'm, um, out of place. Is there any interest in doing a homebrew and or local beer pass? It seems that enough members that I've read posts from have a liking to beer with their smokes and some even brew their own. This is done...
  6. Cigar Bombs
    This morning I check yesterday's mail (killed myself at the gym after work last night, so it was before work this morning). I notice a crazy bomb with a local address. Bryan (bc8436) lives a short distance away but wants the title Puffer of Allston so tried to take me out with this monstrosity...

    So I had a very long and bad day at work.. Came home well after 5pm and I see it. I've got a USPS box. That's strange, I'm expecting UPS not USPS. I grab my knife and proceed with caution. The return address is none other than jakesmokes, my crosstown rival! We had expressed interest in meeting...

    So I was chatting with Krystian (Mr_Mich) about maybe trading for a couple sticks he had before getting a box myself. He says, "Yeah, lets talk about that", or something along those lines . Then I hear nothing, so I figure maybe eh, maybe he forgot or whatever. Ok, no big. Well, a couple days...

    ...and discovered they had a modestly stocked walk-in humidor lined from floor to ceiling with cedar....not Spanish Cedar, but Red Cedar like my Mom has in her house lining her closets and hope chest. The aroma is very nice if it's in Mom's bedroom closet, but very odd and out of place in a...

    Talked to the owner today, and he really wants me to work there when I am available to...How do you turn that down? Oh, if the wife says, "we need to talk about it." lol So I was there today, and they were bringing inventory in, and since they are carrying boxes in and I wanted to look at...
  13. Cigar Pictures
    so there I was...just goin' to the Post Office to send something to blow the crap out a bro's mailbox when I noticed that my local B&M was empty...I never try to pass up an opportunity like this for some nice quiet perusing of an unsuspecting walkador, so I make a side trip further down the...

    Here is an artists interpretation of how it went down It all started earlier this week when I was asking some questions about pipe shapes & similar pipes to one I had seen that I very much wanted. Which was an out of production Stanwell 75 or something. Tonight I get home to find a little box...

    And I got into a discussion of cigars (naturally). I was referred to this website : Cigars - Hand rolled at Flatbed Cigar Company. After checking it out, I ordered mixed sampler #1. Some of the cigars are wrapped in Pennsylvania Broadleaf!. We will see...

    Hey guys, I have a question. I have family going to Punta Cana this February and I've asked them to bring me back cigars.
