    So, barber pole wrappers look cool, obviously. But what do they do to the flavor profile? Shade-grown with broadleaf? Cameroon with a different maduro? How do you guys feel about these?

    I'm a fan of barber pole cigars. However, I've never seen a lancero or panatella barber pole. Anyone know if one exists? I'm sure it would be almost impossible to roll, but surely someone has tried it.

    Today was a LONG day. Work has piled up (end of the semester) and I had to be inside on the only day this week where it was mid-50s outside. Anyhow, come home and no mail in the box. Whew! Walk inside and see my roommate has placed a ticking time bomb on the couch. I get it out and see...

    This is one of my all time favorites, though very hard to find. I had two of these rare sticks left in my humidor when I went to visit a friend in Philly. We went to Holt's. I don't know why I did, but I asked him if they had any lying around. He said that they had the...

    Well it took me awhile to do but it is done!! Started out with 3 Oliva Serie V Lanceros, and a couple donor cigars (for wrappers). I needed to take off all the wrappers on the Vs to get the binder moist so I figured why not play around with them while I am at it. So first thing I did was take...

    Call me crazy but something about Barber Pole wrapped cigars is enjoyable to me. For me aestethics is part of the experience, and I like these. I really like the Fuente BTL, but they are WAAAY too hard to find to smoke often. What are some other good Barber Pole stogies?
  17. General Cigar Discussion
    HEH! Got your attention didn't I? I haven't really had a chance to try any of these barber pole type cigars that seem to be coming onto the market. I know there are ones like the CAO American, Taboo Twist, RP something... I'd love to see some recommendations so maybe I can fill my humidor...
