  1. General Cigar Discussion
    My name is pat this will be my first post! The question is a touchy subject that I have seen people get into heavy arguments over, HUMIDOR TEMP. so this thread is for people to express what temp works best for them with aging, and weekly/monthly smokes. (Without arguments) As of right now I do...
  2. General Cigar Discussion
    Hi I had a really interesting thought the other day. People usually base their decisions for smoking certain cigars based on tastes, asthetics, ratings and so on. I was wondering what everyone here prefers more when deciding their cigars? is length more important or is the ring gauge more...
  3. General Pipe Forum
    What do you guys like in a tobacco pouch? I've seen them with latex, rubber, etc liners and not sure if any one is better than any other. How much tobacco is the right amount to carry? Do you like the one's where you can carry your pipes in them? Some days I get so confused with all the...
  4. General Pipe Forum
    I've been wondering if different types of tobacco are better suited for different times of year, spring, summer, autumn (sorry,fall) and winter. Do the large temperature variations and humidity levels play a part in how the tobacco reacts in the pipe. Do any of you guys have any preferences? I...

    I apologize. I know much of this has been covered, but I am still a little foggy on some of these issues. I am currently trying to get my first humidor stabilized so I can get it filled up. #1 - I've seen threads where people ask cello on or off in the humi. The general consensus says off...

    ]Dear Pipe Friends :hand: I've been reading this forum for months and now decided to throw a topic, hoping to get some valuable advice and opinions from you all. I have read most of the threads about filter pipes and got the idea that many of you dislike filters. Fair enough, every man to...

    So far I've smoked Monte #4 and 5 and Romeo Y Julietta no. 1 and so far my favorite is still the Romeo Y Julietta no.1 because it isn't as harsh. I'm definitly a newbie and probably can't enjoy the more complex cigars so is there anything that is simple in taste. I want something light and sweet...

    So, I had this cheapo bic-like lighter. Any cigar I've lit with it is horrid, at least the first third through. Now, I stick to matches, because I don't know if a torch lighter is really worth it. Is there any real difference? Because, generally, I can always get matches free. The local...

    I see that most people use cutters to open up their cigars rather than "biting" off the cap of them. I am curious which one do you prefer? V-Cut, Punch, or straight cut?
  11. Habanos Discussion
    Hey all, Well after reading Brandon's post on subjectiveness of taste, I started to think more about it. My experiment proved a great deal to me in how this taste difference can be seen. So then, on to aged or fresh. I know the topic has been covered in the past and the saying "smoke what you...

    I have narrowed down my selection to 5 or 6 "brands" that I look forward to smoking. Is that too much? I was going thru my humis last night, I have three, and noticed I have quite a few "other" brands that I enjoy. Now I know it's not wrong to have too many cigars, but I wondered how many of...

    In the first half of the 20th century, CANDELA wrappers were apparently very common. Clearly they are less so now. I read recently that 20 years ago, MADURO wrappers made up only about 10 percent of the market. My personal preference is for the NATURAL wrapped cigar, especially a true (not...

    This hobby doesn't cease to amaze me. As it relates to my favorite vitola: I started out years ago a fan of the Londsdale size. I then evolved to strictly Churchills. I then moved on to Robustos. Now, I absolutely love small vitolas I would never have dreamed of liking so much. I am nuts...
  15. Habanos Discussion
    I am looking for suggestions on a first ISOM box. I read the "Habanos For Beginners" thread along with a few searches but I am still overwhelmed with all of the choices, that and I wanted a little chatter. :-) I am really worried of buying a box of something that I dont care for. I figured if...

    The government of Cuba that is. Do they have preferential relations with certain importing countries? Or do they treat them all the same? Since the government in a centrally controlled economy can set and demand business practices i was just curious if anyone knows of such relations. For...
