    Gents Does pipe tobacco go through multiple fermentations like cigars do ? I guess what I am asking, is there a "sick" period where ammonia is released? Will tobacco age better in the tin or mason jar ? Sorry for the noob questions...

    Hi guys. I just got back from Vegas--quite the cigar trip! Except... The lowlights of the trip were the Siglo VI and PSD 4 (two of my all-time favorites)... both were, well, terrible. I was surprised and disappointed (I've enjoyed both many, many times). Both have an April '10 box date...

    Okay, so as i understand it, for a briar pipe you want to wait at least a day before smoking it again, because you want it to dry out. You have to break it in and build up the cake, because the cake is what absorbs the moisture, and gives you that nice cool/dry smoke. So if the cake is what...

    Greetings Leafsibs! I got a letter from my insurance company today which finalizes some preparations I've been making. On or about September 8th (the date is not yet set in stone, but unlikely to change) I'm having gastric bypass surgery. One might ask, "What does this have to do with cigars?"...

    I know the Mag 50's probably havn't shipped yet, but I am curious as to how the Magnums usually need to sit in order to be pretty good. I'm aware Upmanns can take 5 years to properly mature, but do the Magnums, specifically the 50's(assuming its the same cigar as the EL Mag 50), also need...
  11. Cigar Questions
    I have seen this term thrown around and was trying to figure it out contextually, but I have yet to find a solid definition or understanding, if there is one. When exactly is the sick period? How long does it last? Any pre smoking indicators? Does it vary by size, brand, color? Just trying to...

    Let's say I smoke a recently purchased cigar and it's just nasty with ammonia. I'm curious whose responsible for the now wasted cigar.
  13. General Cigar Discussion
    I think I've finally tried enough of them to say for sure that they are all over rated. Certainly not worth the going rates and never what they fetch in foreign airports. My fellow travelling companions keep handing 'em to me insisting they're terrific. They're usually ok but nothing...
  14. Cigar Questions
    I posted a thread once about Gurkha Legends that I had aged for about a year being very bland and someone suggested that they may be in their sick period. Do n.c.'s really have a sick period? Does it depend on what type of tobbacco is used? Wrapper? etc..? If so do certain tobbaccos have longer...

    Well.. I had a cigar with Henry back in his work shed this afternoon... We talked, and he became increasingly violent in his remarks. There were (by my interpretation) two points that he made: 1. NEVER trash a cigar. 2. The government is "out to get us" Ahh well... Onward and forward!
  16. Cigar Questions
    I haven't really searched thoroughly regarding this subject, but came across several topics, including a relatively heated thread on this topic. What I'm curious about is that from my short-term experience in smoking cigars thus far, I'm finding that NC's generally don't have a "sick period"...

    Good article I found on the sick period - Los Angeles, September 18 - "Cigars should not be consumed during the sick period." That's the clear and unambiguous advice from Hong Kong author Min Ron Nee in his tome, An Illustrated Encyclopedia of Post-Revolution Havana Cigars. It's worth noting...

    To squash the over abuse by trolls and overall a$$hat$, why not have a period (such as a week or two) where they are required to lurk after signing up, this would include no use of thread privelages or replies but allows them to learn the ropes...many come on here and see it doesn't take time to...

    So the thing is Ive had my cigars in my humi at 69% for a month and a half already.At first when I got them they really tasted bad which I thought was due to their sick period bla bla bla....Now there are lots of posts which state that a cigar after a month to two months in a humidor will be...
