    I hate accidentally buying the same cigar twice, only to remember that I hated it the first time. So I recently started taking detailed notes on construction, burn quality, ash and flavor. Does anyone else do this? (someone...please say yes!)
  2. General Cigar Discussion
    You guys might think I'm nuts here, but does anyone else taste notes of malt in their smokes? My (very unrefined) palate frequently picks up malted notes, as in malted barley. This usually happens with maduros; not "naturals." Maybe it's just oak / woodiness, which seems to be a very common...

    I am really enjoying some of the complex flavors that i can experience now that I have quit cigarettes. My favorite has to be the coffee notes. What are some of your favorite cigars with coffee notes or what stick do you reach for when you're craving that coffee flavor? Not including...
  4. General Cigar Discussion
    When it comes to describing the tastes found in a cigar, I'm able to pick up on most of the standard descriptions: earth, leather, chocolate, spice, pepper, grass, mustiness, cream, meaty, salt, cedar, dark fruit, caramel, damp cardboard that I wouldn't shove down my enemy's throat...
  5. Habanos Discussion
    Well, just got back from a week-long trip to Cuba. The people were amazing and the cigars even better. I wanted to make some quick notes for future visitors before I forget: 1) Of all the shops in Havana and Varadero, the one with the biggest selection was arguably the one in Varadero on...

    I know there are a few guys here that enjoy whiskies of various sorts with (or without) their cigars. I thought I'd make this thread for you to document your tasting notes and share your experiences with others. Or if you've seen a good review, post up a link. Ignore the thread's title; all...
  7. General Pipe Forum
    Just had to share this! While digging through some old vinyl LP's, I found an old receipt from a pipe purchase I made. It was from 1985 and was from the shop I later worked at. I bought: Becker carved billiard $140 Ashton SG (straight Grain) $250 McC's Navy Cav 7.95 Nice prices...
  8. Cigar Accessory Discussion
    I know there are multiple programs out there for keeping track of your cigar collection and notes, prices, ratings, etc. etc. But the mobile ones all seem for the palm os. There is a good one that is called tasting notes for the iphone. Does anyone out there know of a Blackberry compatible...

    "An Illustrated Encyclopedia of Post-Revolution Havana Cigars" by Min Ron Nee arrived on my doorsteps not too long ago and I found it absolutely fascinating. While about 90% of the book is about brands, their histories, and cigars they produce, that remaining 10% had some great information that...

    Mindy and I attended the Prince William County Wine Festival today. As we are both fans of wines, and fans of the local wines, we greatly enjoyed the event. There were 35 of around 100 Virginia vineyards represented there and we tasted from most of them over the course of the afternoon. Here...
  11. Non-Habanos Reviews
    Caveat: It is perhaps unwise to discuss a brand of cigars as opposed to individual "models" but wisdom has never been my strength. There are many opinions on the merits and faults of the Gurkha line of cigars in this forum. Some point out, accurately, that there is level of packaging gimmickry...
  12. Cigar Puffers Introduction Forum
    I live in Southern California near the happiest place on earth. Ten years ago I was a cuban snob, but only smoked one after a night of drinking, and knew very little about it. When I quit drinking I tried smoking a little, but didn't enjoy it. 3 months ago, a friend got some CC (Cohiba) from...

    This joke has been around for awhile, I first read it about five years ago. I still can't read it without getting tears in my eyes. ENJOY ______________________________________________________________ Notes From An Inexperienced Chili Taster Named FRANK, who was visiting Texas from the East...
  16. General Cigar Discussion
    I tried the Bahia Gold #2 last night. Taste: Awesome. Fit my taste buds to a tee. Hinted of leather and grass. Sweeter than most cigars. Very smooth, and got smoother as I smoked it. Abundant tobacco flavor. I normally don't pick up much flavor on the draw, but this one had flavor when...

  18. Non-Habanos Reviews
    I got this cigar as part of a sampler on sale from Famous Smoke. I was in the mood for something milder, so I pulled it out of the humidor. It looked great initially, but upon closer examination, it had some construction issues: basically, it was full of stems. I pulled one out of the foot...
  19. Cigar Questions
    Here's something that's been buging me for a while and I want to get it off my chest. When I smoke my cigars I try not to be too pretencious with what flavors I get from it. If I can't pin point the actual taste, I don't make stuff up on my cigar sheets (I keep a cigar log) I usually say...
  20. Cigar Questions
    I would like some guidance from experienced cigar smokers about how to get the best from a cigar, I have looked around and there doesn't seem to be much information about technique. With wine and other complex aromatic substances there are ways that are know about how to get the flavors that are...
