  1. General Cigar Discussion
    So I'm sitting outside on a nice and sunny evening, lighting a RP Signature Serie, wondering how does one know if a cigar is properly lit? I mean, lighting a cigar is an art form in itself and I was wondering, being fairly new to the hobby, if my cigars are lit correctly? I just roll it over...

    Well my brother got me a late graduation present yesterday. Peterson of Dublin Pipe with the zippo lighter. It came with filters and the pipe tool and a tin of Sweet Killarney Tobacco. This is my first pipe and I got to say, so far i LOVE it!!!. I've been reading a lot of stuff saying that I...

    I've got a Xikar branded herf-a-dor (5 count). How long can cigars survive in one of those things? I don't want to take up a slot with a humidification bead tube, but I will if you guys think it's necessary. I'll be traveling for about 10 days and will be opening it to smoke every other day or...

  9. Site Help and Suggestions
    when I click on some of the banner ads all they do is just turn into mini windows with scroll bars and everything they don't redirect me to anywhere. So far I do know that tinderbox does not do this but the other ones do.
  10. Cigar Accessory Questions
    My GF bought me a CAO Black 100 Count humi for V.D. Before i went to season it I noticed what seemed like a little bit of creaking from the wood everytime i closed the lid. So my next move was to do a light test to check if it still sealed properly, as the lid seemed as if it had warped. I...

    Ah so it seems the Jets and Eric Mangenital were caught taping from the sidelines at last years Pats/Jets game and New England handled it with class by getting the offender removed and keeping it between themselves. Unlike the whiny Belichick wannabe who had to go to mommy and squeal.

    Hi, I have a Xi2 that I've owned for a couple months. I've just noticed that the blades don't exactly touch each other when the cutter is closed. In fact when I held the closed cutter up to the light, quite a bit of light shines through between the blades. Is this typical of Xi2 cutters? How is...
  13. Cigar Questions
    Okay, bear with me. I tried my first cigars the other day, but I discovered a problem. If I sucked it, the end of the cigar would glow and smoke would rise from it, but I couldn't get any smoke into my mouth. Whereas when I tried drawing my cheeks in, it left me coughing, so that must mean that...

    Not sure if this is were I should post this but I thought everybody would enjoy a good laugh. And maybe serve as a don't do for others. :sl Yes they are, it really probably helps if I take the stock humidifier out. I guess that is what happens after a long day at work. And being all giddy to...
  15. General Cigar Discussion
    Due to the amount of responses that my previous post has recieved, the one about humidors and the high temp that is present in it, i feel its necesary to follow up with a post that explains how to properly freeze cigars. I have heard rumors that freezing cigars in a home freezer doesnt do the...

    I just recently set up my humidor and I went to a good site that took me through the process of setting it up correctly. Anyway, I just ordered some not so cheap cigars about a week ago and now my cigars are already starting to get crispy. Not too bad to the point of being junk... but getting...

    I received an Elie Bleu humidor as a gift several years ago. A few months ago, after a long hiatus, I bought some new cigars and put the humidor back in service. Now I can't keep the humidity near 70%. I tried the flashlight test and I can see a small amount of light emitting from the front --...
