  1. Cigar Questions
    I just turned 18 about a week ago and for a long time have wanted to try them out. I've already tried buying sampler packs from a couple sites and have been turned away at checkout because I'm not 21. Are there any sites that sell to 18 year olds and whats the reasoning behind the 21+?

    Sorry if all of this has been covered. I have searched it every way i can possibly think of, and just not finding the answers I'm looking for. 1) Edgestar 28 is the cooler I am looking at, but to those who have one up and running..... Some reviews are saying they bite the dust after about...

    I am probably going to place my first sizable cigar order online later on tonight. My first question is: What are the best internet cigar retailers you fellas use? I have had my eye on JR Cigars and Thompson Cigars specifically because they seem to have great deals, but I am interested to hear...

    Computer is a cheap Gateway Nv52, probably 4 years or more old. Since I do not do computing, only surf, email and watch movies on the net or dvd, this laptop serves me well since it has HDMI plug. Now the problems, I have never changed the battery and this is my question #1 will the laptop...

    Are there any alternative to the good old Oust Fans, or can someone explain how to set up a timer onto a computer fan. Also, should humidors go into the cooler as well, or does their seal prevent the humidity from entering? Thanks guys!

    Hi everyone, I have a few more questions about pipe smoking, and I apologize if they've been hashed over many times. 1. I've been looking at some Vauen pipes after finding their website on accident. They look beautiful, and being made in Germany, I'm assuming that they have HIGH quality...

    Just bought a 45 quart cooler and I'm currently getting it set up. Put an unused spanish cedar cigar tray in the bottom, with 2 knee high panty hose on each side filled with kitty litter. Still going to wait a day or so to make sure, but it looks to be holding pretty steady at 67% at the...

    Hello all, I've been wanting to get into pipe smoking for awhile. What's some decent fair-priced pipes and tobacco for a beginner like me? And where are good places online to find them? Any help and advice will be appreciated!
  10. Cigar Questions
    I have an undeveloped palate. That said, I seem to be able to pick up the aromas from an unlit cigar and from a cold draw - probably just the obvious ones right now. However, once I light a cigar all I seem to detect are what I think are the obvious ones like coffee or chocolate. When I...

    I have always loved to read, usually reading a dozen or so books a year on average. However, since I received a Kindle on my last birthday I am reading at least twice that number at this time. My questions are: Which is the best Spy Thriller/Mystery Thriller, you've ever read, any era? Which is...

    A couple weeks ago I was asking preferences between a large cooler and a wine fridge for storage. I ended up going with the wine fridge for appearance and for extra space. I haven't put any boxes in yet because I haven't been able to get temp and humidity at levels I want. Below are the 2 main...
  13. Cigar Accessory Questions
    1. I have a couple of coolers that I have had for years, is it ok to use those or should it only be a new one? 2. I tried the paper test and both let the paper slide through the lid. Is that the true sign of airtight? 3. I can get some boxes from the local cigar shop for $2, but they have...

    Hi everyone, hope you're having a fantastic day I apologize in advance if these questions have been hashed over hard and have become redundant over the course of time. While being new to the joys of smoking, I have yet to try a cigar because I hardly know anything about them. 1. Is bigger...

    I just bought on of these for my weekend trips. The 5 holder, also got some of them humi-care water pillows. How would you go about using the combo of humi-care pillow and the humidifier that is built in? Was thinking of putting some KL in the little humidifier and toss in a pillow pouch. I am...

    Having picked up pipe smoking recently, I decided to go with cobs first. I got me a MM Washington and Diplomat. However, I am lost as to how to clean them. A primer on corn cob I've read on Pipedia said that they can be cleaned with a pipe cleaner soaked in rubbing alcohol. I've done that and...

    I got my pipe, tobacco and Czech tool Thursday afternoon. I went with a MM Patriot and a tin of Escudo. I did a little reading and thought I was prepared for an easy first smoke. Not. I have to admit up front that I gave up a little early on my first attempt due to the heat and the fact that I...

    I have ~50 cigars coming in the mail from various vendors and I never considered freezing until I read about it here and my apartments temps are typically higher than ideal... Around 75-80 sometimes. I won't smoke through my cigars quick enough to merit not freezing them but I'm curious about a...
