  1. General Cigar Discussion
    Hey puffers Has anyone tried anything from this line of smokes? I've smoked about 10 of the Connecticut wrapped Nicaraguans that came with a humidor bundle from Thompson, and I quite enjoy them, and I'm really interested in trying the Oscuro-wrapped variants and the Dominican variants. Not to...
  2. Habanos Discussion
    Hopefully I will be able to word this so as to achieve my goal. I want to know your Opinion as to why a Cuban benefits from "Sleep" in a Humidor, and a Non-Cuban not so much. We have all heard that a Non-Cuban (Nic, Ecu, Dom Rep, etc) just doesn't benefit from the (sometimes) years that...

    I recently been to the Dominican Republic about 6 weeks ago. While I was there I purchased some Cigars in our resort, a box of 25 actually. I brought them home and placed them in my basement with a humidifier in the box and my temp in the basement at 65-70 degrees. Today I go check on them...

    Since pretty much none of you know me it should be easy to give an objective opinion. Tell me I'm wrong if need be. Background: I am a Pittsburgh sports fan, mostly of the Penguins (hockey for those of you who don't know) and by fan I mean it pretty much consumes me and dictates my mood during...
  5. Non-Habanos Reviews
    Hi All, in interest of generating some conversation I thought I would post my thoughts on pretty much all of the cigars I've tried so far (its a shortish list, but its getting better) in super mini review form, and then ask y'all what I can expect out of some of the smoke I ordered mostly blind...

    Me and my girlfreind of 10mnths recently broke it off. Since then my ex and I have been chatting. We have decided that she will come down this Friday for the evening. She just texted me and asked what cigars I want her to bring. I said dont worry about that. She says no I insist. At that moment...
  7. Cigar Accessory Discussion
    I'm in the talks with a former cigar smoker who is willing to let go of his humidor for 200.00. I just got the pictures and he forgot the information on the humidor cause its been so long. He said he placed it next to his Mac Book Pro 15in laptop so I can get an idea on how big it is. From...
  8. General Pipe Forum
    Got an offer of 108. For a brand new Peterson System Smooth 307 p-lip Is this a good price, and a good beginners pipe for some one who has gone through the process of buying a cheapie (30 dollar pipe) and come to the conclusion that they will be smoking a pipe from now on? If not, any other...

    I've purchased VSGs in the past and gifted most of them away without ever smoking them. I finally got the chance today to try one. It was the Sorcerer (7 x 49) and enjoyed it immensely. Solid cigar that fits my flavor profile real well. I'll try some of the other vitolas out before settling...
  11. Habanos Discussion
    I got a 5 pack of those. They were so so. BUT since few guys told me they're the best, I got a 25ct box and decided to let it sit. What do you guys think? How long before they smoke good? The ones I've had were salty and tasteless, except one I got from Bob a while ago, that one I remember being...

    I wonder if pipe smokers, collectors and/or hobbyists have any opinions on stems made with delrin tenons? Does anybody care one way or the other?
  13. Cigar Questions
    always knew that my 50 ct humidor would eventually be too small and i am not looking for a new one. What is anyone's opinion on a new humidor. At least 100ct. If I had the cash I'd be looking into AVO humi's and the like but since I dont have that kind of cash laying around I am looking for...

  16. General Cigar Discussion
    Just finished up a NUB Habano, my first ever although have smoked many of their Maduros. The first 5 minutes were somewhat flat although the stick evoled nicely and quickly. Somewhat spicy but not too much. Also some hints of nuts and cedar and quite smooth and creamy. At times exhibited a...

    Although never a big fan of "blondies" got a few of these in a NUB sampler recently. With NUB's I only buy the maddies which are good, usually ROTT so figured I'd give the other 3 blends a try with the six pack. Upon lighting up I could taste that this Connecticut is yet another "very" mild...

    Does any one have an opinion on this sampler. It is on cigars.com I don't really need the humi. But this seems to be one of the better Gurkha samplers I can find for the price. I have wanted for a long time to try a Gurkha. I finished up all my acids so im ready to try something new. All...
  20. General Cigar Discussion
    Well I was at JR cigars in Paramus New Jersey last week and picked up a few boxes. Those that know the store, know that there is a cigar of the week each week, for 3 bucks a stick. Usually there is a limit of two, but they know I love the old school hoya de monterrey...
