  1. Cigar Questions
    I've seen 1 or 2 posts that talk about resting duration, but they're mostly answers of opinion, which is fine, but very little reasoning behind them. How do you know how long to rest a cigar before it's at its optimum smokability? I understand that all cigars are different, coupled with all...

  3. Cigar Questions
    It is just now the start of my work season, what some call the snowbird migration. Cash is tight. Even my 'dors are starting to suffer and I have dipped into some of my cigars that should be resting for another six months or more. I have been reading all the inexpensive cigar threads. Most...

    ...what would it be? I've never liked breakfast (and usually skipped it) until earlier this year, when I discovered just how amazing properly cooked grits could be. Now it's my go-to nearly every morning, so my answer would be: Grits cooked with a little garlic and onion powder, salt, a...

    This is a very good cigar if you let them rest for 6 months or more. The Conn. broadleaf wrapper is of good quality, the const. is a bit uneven unl... Read the full review here: Bahia Maduro Panchos Cigar Review - Let Them Rest

    First off, I have smoked these in the past and enjoyed them. This cigar I allowed to sit for a few years. I think has allowed this cigar to reall... Read the full review here: Punch Gran Puro Pico Bonito Cigar Review - Give it a rest

    I have been aging Monte No.2 & Cohiba Siglo IV for 1yr now after I bought it from a known source, not sure how long they had it for and what box was it from, I am sure it was not laying arround in store for more than month or two.. I know these sticks should have 3-5 years of rest, should I try...
  8. General Cigar Discussion
    I've been smoking Cigars for 7 years now. While not anywhere near an Expert, I do know how to take care of my cigars once I receive them. Here are two scenerios: (1) Say I buy a box of cigars for a vendor. I usually let them rest for three or four month before I smoke one. Sometimes I...
  9. Want to Sell/Trade (WTS)
    I might be able to pick up 10 or 12 Anejo 48's for a decent price. With tax and shipping (min 4 sticks) it would probably end up around $13+-$14 per stick (still have some negotiating to do). Anyone interested in me pursuing this???
  10. General Pipe Forum
    My first post here. I am occasionally smoking a pipe after 24 years away from it. I have a couple of old meers and some 26 year old third-class briars. I just got a gourd calabash with a three hole meerschaum bowl off ebay for under $20 shipped. The bowl is cracked but has no leakage, and I will...
  11. Thoughts and Prayers
    Today, my grandfather passed away. He and I didn't really get along, but he's still family and it hurts. So, if you smoke one today, dedicate it to him, Roger Ingram, may he rest in peace.
  12. General Pipe Forum
    I use a Ropp cherry(?) wood poker for quick smoke breaks. It has a narrow, shallow bowl so doesn't get smoked for more than 10 minutes at a time. I smoke Walnut or Sugar Barrel in it so it doesn't get too wet. Just wondering if I'm abusing it by not letting it rest like I do the briars...
  13. Cigar Accessory Discussion
    So I was on the job (Building Construction) filling out my daily reports and smoking a cigar, wondering where I could rest my smoke without the wrapper getting torn or it rolling off on the deck. I looked around and saw a brick tie used by masons. It worked wonderfuly. The top rung is concaved...
  14. General Cigar Discussion
    Besides getting a cigar that you've been dying to try and will smoke ROTT, how long do you generally let a cigar rest for once you own it. I understand there will be some differences in how it was aquired, B&M vs. online purchase and gifts from BOTL, that may determine how long you let it rest...

    Hey everyone, I'm back after a long long winter here in Indiana. I apologize for disappearing partway through the winter, coming here and seeing all the eye candy was for than I could handle. I tried going out and smoking a cigar sometime in January and my hand nearly fell off. It was just too...

    Just got some really sad news from my Sister, shes quite upset about it. Our neighbors had to put down their dog Henry today. He was a big English Mastiff, real good boy. He was only 5 years old but a couple years ago he got diagnosed with epilepsy. His medication made his bones weak and such he...

    Question for all you seasoned cigar puffers, what is the average rest time you give for a new arrival of sticks ROTT?? ALso, what typical characteristics would you generally see if you were to smoke them a little prematurely???

  19. General Cigar Discussion
    Say some cigars were resting for two years by a buddy and were gifted to you. If you froze those cigars before putting them in your humi would it completely reverse the rest that they have? If not, how much effect would it have on the two years rest?
  20. General Cigar Discussion
    So I totally get that you should age cigars, it allows them to mature and brings out flavors that you might not be able to taste if you smoke them right after purchase. Now my question(s)...aren't they "resting" while sitting in the humidor at the B&M or at the internet retailer? So, in...
