    This one is a bit of a love/hate product. It is truly a difficult tobacco to get to perform, but the payoff is there for those who won't be turned off by a "high maintenance" blend. I'll admit that Dark Star has annoyed and frustrated me in the past... For those that don't know, this is a...

    Hello, Anyone have experience with the Cigar Star product line? I am looking into the Humidors they have to offer. But thought I would reach out to the Puff crowd to see if anyone had good experiences with them and their products

    Last night, I finally got around to firing up one of the Alec Bradley Star Insignias I got from ***************.com's giveaway. It was the churchill size, I believe and had a slight box press to it. I paired it with a very cheap but tasty tempranillo (a Spanish red wine varietal) purchased...

    be honest now,did you know there was more than one verse? Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? And the...

    A while back I was browsing the historical documents (those poor people!) ... well, not those historical documents ... well, maybe somehow related to those historical documents ... if you catch my drift, which may or may not be of importance as we go on. Anyway, among the historical documents I...

    There's always the discussion of the best smokes, but how about the worst? Not even Mixture 79 qualifies, which says something about how bad these have to be. Interesting to note that Borkum Riff manages to land five in the bottom 23 of the sorriest smokes on the planet. Even Dan, Mac Baren...

    So, I'm going through some tobacco samples seeing what I haven't tried yet and I run across Dark Star. I apologize but I have absolutely no idea who sent me this. It was tucked away in the bottom of an envelope I had consolidated several things I'd gotten that day. I look at it and realize...

  9. General Pipe Forum
    Anyone have any info on these? Smoked 2 half bowls out of my new Mincer-era pipe, and noticed it's got a triangle mark on the shank. I believe I've also seen or at least heard of star markings as well. Is someone here educated on such markings?

    Reading on here and seeing firsthand what most B&M humidors look like outside of Florida look like I see a need for a chain cigar shop/lounge. Imagine a shop in every city in the country where you know there will be a large well stocked humidor, meaning complete lines of cigars, boutique brands...

    The other night on Pawn Stars I guy brought in a sealed box of pre embargo Belvedere cc's he found in his grandfathers WWII trunk. Initially the guy wanted $600 but the guys at the shop offered him $50 because the cigars were worthless since they were kept in a trunk. They also said had they...

    - in public and often -- who would it be and why? Most people have positive connotations with pipe smoking. Imagine how many new recruits we'd get if some handsome actor always had a Dunhill or Eltang clenched in his jaw.

    Hi all, Travis here, I run the marketing department here at ***************.com. As some of you know we did a promotion where we gave away 500 "Sneak Preview" 3-packs of our new exclusive brand by Alec Bradley, the Star Insignia, to people who signed up for the e-mail list at cigarwar.com. Looks...

    I got my sneak preview yesterday. Planned on letting them rest, but figured I'd smoke one ROTT. Feel free to read this review in real time. I'll post two or three portions of the review. Pictures will be up later. Snagged the box-pressed robusto size. The stick feels soft. Not over...
