Well, there sure is a lot to learn in this hobby, so first and foremost, thank you for all the content here.
A quick rundown so far: [Edit: posted a link to my intro post, but am one post shy of being allowed to post links. See the intro post titled "A new occasional smoker from Canada.
This was my first Montecristo ever, and I was looking forward to it. Having heard and read so much about this popular marca, I wanted to see for myself what it was all about.
Price at my b&m = $16.50
Kept in my 'dor at 65% for 8 weeks
From 2015 box
The cigar looks good, smooth shiny wrapper...
I wrote this for another forum back on October 25th, 2014. Thought I'd share it here with you.
I just smoked my first Ashton, and I thought I'd give a short review. This is a Robusto, 5 1/4" x 52.
I didn't have a camera with me, or I would have taken pictures and given a play-by-smoke of...
I got a box of these for a decent price on Cigarbid a few weeks back and last night I had the opportunity to try one. It was ROTT so I'll post a follow up they've aged sufficiently.
These are a small treat for when you don't need or want to invest in an hour(s) long smoke. at 4" x 46 guage...
This is my first review here, in fact it's my first review ever.
Cigar: La Gloria Cubana Series R Estelli #6 Maduro.
Provenance: my local B&M, approximately 1 week ago.
Location: the front porch.
Weather: calm, clear, about 60 degrees and a very light breeze.
Tobacco: Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. Bosun Cut Plug
Pipe: A Lakeland's tainted cobb
Prequel: My brother decided to give me the rest of his Bosun Plug because it didn't sit well with him. So in keeping with my recent GH&Co reviews, I decided I would light this one up tonight and do a quick...
Let's face it. Sometimes we know exactly what we want to smoke, but other times we just want a good cigar. I thought it would be fun if we had a place for people who were unsure of which of their "on-deck" cigars to smoke next could ask for recommendations and then report back with a brief...
Here is a new pass idea different from anything else I have seen on here:
The other day I stopped by a local BOTLs house and dropped a stick off on his desk with a simple message telling him to enjoy the stick and to post a review within 48hrs. Then it got me thinking this would be cool to...
So for anyone that has not followed my other post (Cigar International Order)
I ordered a box of Gurkha Crest cigars in Salomon size, and when I received
the cigars they where all cracked and broken some with holes, and they where
in a sealed box...
After getting my replacement cigars only...
Tobacco: Samuel Gawith Black XX Twist
Pipe: 1970's Adventurer Series
Prequel: Tonight, I decided that I need something that I consider a treat. Something for the bold. When I am in the mood for such a tobacco, I reach for a rope.
Tin Note: Pure, bold, no none-sense tobacco smell...
Tobacco: Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. Dark Birdseye
Pipe: 1950's LHS Willford
Prequel: I be in search of some vitamin N kiddies.
Tin Note: Big bold tobacco flavor in this one. This thing reeks of dark, fire cured tobacco. I know it is a little controversial as to whether this is topped at all...
Hey guys and gals, here goes my first official review.
It got up to a balmy 30F here today, which is a nearly 40 degree jump from a few days ago. When you get 30 degrees in Jan/Feb in Northern Indiana you get out and do something! So I picked out a smoke and headed outdoors.
To preface this...

Hello peeps, this is my first cigar review so be gentle. Also, sorry about the lawnmower in the background. Thinking of making more of these, so feedback is appreciated.

This tobacco holds a special place in my heart - it was the first aromatic I ever smoked. It is extremely possible it was the first tobacco I ever smoked in a pipe, as it was one of my two first purchases.
On the occasion of this review, another from my journal, I smoked out of a dedicated...
I freely admit that I am self conscious about posting a review of this. However, I feel that there are some OTC blends that are worthy, PA being one for me, and CB white being the other.
This was actually a gift from my wife. I had been wanting to try this forever. My grandfather smoked a...
