    Not asking for thoughts and prayers, or anything like that. Just kind of need to vent a little bit, because it's been rough and I don't want to get too many close people close to me too involved. End of August, the dealership I bought my truck from (it was a buy here/pay here type of deal)...

    When i turned 18 i quickly fell in love with the art of cigar smoking. I love and respect a good cigar. But i gotta tell you, its not the easiest hobby for someone of 19 that still lives with there parents. My parents once found a cigar in my room and freaked out. I just ordered my first...

    I went to an estate auction for a lady down the street from my girlfriends house of a woman who passed on, God rest her soul. I recently found I really enjoy refinishing and refurbishing old pipes to smoke. I love smoking something that smokes brand new but has character and heritage. So when I...

    I got this cigar in a sampler pack, I thought this one might be a cheap cigar to round out the othes that I knew to be good. Wrong! This is a great... Read the full review here: La Perla Habana Black Pearl Morado Robusto Cigar Review - A Gem In The Rough

    It seems like there has been a bunch of BOTL's having stressful days/weeks and some good smokes are being busted out. My question is: What cigar do you go for when you've had a long week? I'm going to be rounding out a stressful week and want to get a nicer stick to relax with. I'm looking for...

    This corona is a little mangy looking with a bungled cap and a splotchy wrapper, so I wasn't too hopefull about this cigar. Upon lighting up I knew... Read the full review here: Olor Fuerte Corona Cigar Review - Rough Looking, Good Tasting

    I had two friends killed and another shot in the legs today at the Rep Giffords event. I dont want to use names just yet. What a coward, I dont care what your politics are. They were speaking to Rep Giffords while the shooting started. The wife was shot and my friend shielded her with his...

    As some of you may know, I work at a cigar shop. For those of you who don't know what that is like, I sympathize. Anyone who has ever worked in the customer service industry will understand this: Losing a regular is like losing a family member. They see you every day, they talk to you, ask...

    I just need to share and vent a little, hope you all don't mind. The last year and a half have been a bit rough financially for my wife and I. Been a bit stressful on our marriage and life in general. Been working very hard to get things back on track and I think we might be finally seeing some...

    My favorite local shop Badgers Cigar Den(if youre ever in the Albany,NY area Badgers is a must visit) turned me on to 2 new cigars over the past few weeks that I havent seen at any other shop. The first is a great budget replacement for Nubs. They are made by a company called Miura and are...

    I've had a couple of cigars lately that were pertty good and smooth through the first 2/3s, but got a little funky towards the end. I know that these are decent cigars (Oliva V, etc) so I'm wondering if there is anything I'm doing while smoking them that may cause this?

    Here's the tobacco process as it was in 1969. There should be 3 pictures attached here. If this goes well, I'll post the recipe for the recipe for flavor/casing as well...

    Be they blasted, or rusticated to some level, pipes without a smooth outer finish will collect gunk, goo, and even crud. What do YOU use to clean these styles of pipes without damaging the finish/stain? Qtips and spit? After a few years, some of my pipes are "going grey" for lack of a better...

    This one started out pretty rough. After the first 1/3 the flavor mellowed out and overall this is not a bad smoke. The flavor is very one dimensi... Read the full review here: Gurkha Grand Reserve Churchill Cigar Review - Rough Start

    Well fellas, the merriment and cheer I usually feel about the holiday season is tempered slightly this year. There is something both relaxing and meditative about this time of year. Something that has been missing for me. For the past three months, I have been unable to light up a bowl. Having...

    I normally don't post anything but upbeat posts, but this has been a tough week. This is not for sympathy, I am just trying to turn it positive. On Friday the 29th, my wife and I celebrated our fourth wedding anniversay and things were going great. Being a gentleman, I won't give you the...
