    Ok, so I've had a few orders arrive for various splits and things. One thing I've noticed is that a large percentage of them (like 30 % it seems!) have a charcoal or black "finish" on them. It looks like the wrappers were sitting on an old car engine, or else were handled by mechanics (I mean...

    Bobalu rolled cigars wednesday 6/22/11 at Texas Governor Rick Perry’s residence. Private party for (4) couples. Pictured Bobalu cigar roller Robin with the Governor. They all enjoyed cigars on the deck at sunset. Gov. Perry gave our roller one of his private stash cigars given to him by Arnold...

    So I notice Zach (Zfog) liquidating some of his NC's last week and throw and innocent question at him "Got any thing else you want to get rid of..?" We quickly swing a great deal for some Illusione HL's (one of my favorites - I am smoking one as I type this) and a Camacho Liberty. I open the...

    This cigar was rolled so badly that the taste was almost irrelevent, it tunneled, canoed, and sprayed ashs and sparks like a Roman candle. The tast... Read the full review here: Felipe II Reserva D Cigar Review - Rolled By A Monkey?

    So I'm going to an event tonight where they will be rolling cigars to sell. Can you smoke them as soon an they are rolled? How long after they are rolled can you still smoke them before they go into the sick phase (this does happen, right?) What can I expect for flavors? :smoke:

    I know most of the Pete Johnson, Tatueja stuff is still rolled there, but what else? Not trying to be a snob, but after all these years, I really like the idea of a well constructed smoke made in the good ol' USA.

    So I just got a shipment in from Switzerland and every single stick will not give a draw - obviously I can't go further into the kind of cigar. Any suggestions for getting them to draw, or should I just complain to the seller?

    I bought a sampler of various V. Sinclar cigars, and so far 2 have been almost unsmokable, rolled much too tightly. This cigar looks very good, nic... Read the full review here: Victor Sinclair Serie 55 Green Grand Reserve Robusto Cigar Review - rolled too tight

    I am not sure if this is appropriate for this forum or not, so please let me know if this is thread should be closed, but a vendor I have purchased from in the past is now offering its own custom rolled cigars. They are on the pricey side but was curious if anyone was aware or had experience...

    Question: If a roller uses a lieberman machine, is it still considered a 'hand rolled' cigar? I'm guessing not, since it's machine rolled. Also - does anyone know which brands use plastic molds after rolling vs. wooden ones? Being a traditionalist in many different aspects, I'd prefer cigars...

    Hi y'all- I'm new here and was wondering if pipe tobacco can be used with a manual cigarette rolling machine? I tried it once, my first time to use a rolling machine, and it didn't work. I couldn't get enough tobacco into the cig tube. Yes, I dry out the tobacco and yes, I put it in a coffee...

    Great tasting cigar. However, I have encountered a problem with its construction a few times, specifically it was rolled too tight causing a very t... Read the full review here: Cohiba Extra Vigeroso XV 652 Cigar Review - Nice when rolled properly

    Anybody smoke machine-rolled cigars here? I've been thinking about trying some La Aurora Principes, iono, I figure they'd make good humi-filler cigars. Are there any machine rolled sticks worth smoking if you're a value guy like me? I like Swisher Sweets sometimes, especially the Peach ones...

I was covering an event for my job (I'm a reporter and graphic designer in Northern Virginia) and at the event I was at, a man from Cuba was rolling cigars. Luckily, I had a video camera handy and shot it. I...

    I posted a couple weeks ago some cigars I rolled from some blanks (Filler and Binder) and whole tobacco leaf. These are from a top notch from a big name manufacture, Nic filler and binder with a Maduro wrapper. This is not an all out review but just wanted to show how good it smoked. The first...

    I got a hold of some full wrapper tobacco leafs and so this past week I was able to roll some cigars. I only had 4 Maduro wrappers and the others are Conn. I don't have a Cheveta Knife yet so I used a scalpel to cut the tobacco to roll, and I don't have the tool to cut the caps so I have been...

    After doing a bit of research and driving around, I have discovered there are at least five local cigar shops around that roll their own, and only sell their own. Is this something special, or do most neighborhoods or big cities have some hand rolling establishments around...
