    Did the search, looked around but all that comes up is advertisement about how these pre-date the Opus X but no real comparisons. I looked at the Don Carlos at a couple of the B&M's around here and the wrapper just didn't grab me for the price of them. Love the Opus X with age and have a bunch...

    So by all standards 2010 has been discussed as an excellent year for the Coro. I smoked my first the other day ROTT from the land of Smelvis but it was a 2011. I was impressed with construction, appearance, smokeability, etc etc etc. Being that its my first I am not really sure what they...

    I am not one to develop official reviews of any cigar. I simply enjoy smoking every single one I can get my hands on and giving a healthy yea or a timid nay to the experience. I also enjoy giving a back to back comparison to a particular experience. This evening I put the Jalapa from Torano...

    Has anyone tried this? I'm thinking to purchase a stove top espresso bialetti (3 or 6-cup) but i cant decide between Bialetti Moka or the Bialetti Brikka (Which creates Crema). Any suggestions, recommendations, tips? and what would you go for and why? Experience with it? Durability? does it...

    Got a quick question regarding storage conditions. I got a thermoelectric fridgador a few months back and it's doing a great job for the most part. RH is controlled by 60% beads that seem to actually hold 62-63% quite well, which is exactly where I want it, considering the contents are almost...

    Looking to get a few of these. Either MonteCristo or Cohiba. Out of the sizes which do you folks recommend? I've tried the Purito Montecristo and had some quality issues, which I hear is common. From what I've seen, purito is the largest, club is medium and mini is the smallest? Please...

    Hey guys, I have smoked a bunch Padilla 68 Toros in the past and have not been too impessed. I always get this very sweet taste that is just too sweet for me. The wrapper smells like a sugar cube to me. Sometimes I get a cherry taste too and just do not like the taste of the 68. Just too...

    The Tobacco Settlements are a huge complicated deal, so this should help answer some questions about the settlements going on around the country. (For those of you outside the United States, nearly all of the 50 states have filed law suits against the makers of cigarettes to recover health...

    When I was a kid I remember the smell of certain cigars. I can only describe it as "stinky". Yet, now that I smoke cigars, I haven't experienced a cigar yet with that same "stinky" smell. It's more aromatic, or herbal, or woody. Now the other day I was in a casino and came across that old...

    I seem to to be review a lot of rare item recently, I have some other rarities on my pipeline. Well today I bring you the CAO Brazilia Perfecto. Like its Italia sibling both of them are somewhat rare and are part of CAO's Artistry Of Champions Humidor. I also have yet to see I review on this...

    Ah rare cigars, or rare anything really. Nothing out there in world has more prestige then something that is rare. Today I bring you the CAO Italia, not just any regular ol' Italia, but what I think is THE Italia to own and to smoke. This cigar is 1 outta 5 special vitolas that CAO made back in...
  12. General Pipe Forum
    I've only recently returned to the leaf after a 6 week hiatus due to nasal surgery (which was a fantastic success, btw). I own two butane lighters: an old "pen-style" Collibri and a Prometheus pipe lighter (the model name escapes me). The construction of the Prometheus lighters is such that...

    Hey guys, curious what you think of these 2 bargain sticks. Which you like better and differences between the two. Thanks.
  14. General Cigar Discussion
    So what's everyone's opinions on house blends... i.e., Famous has their sticks, many of which are made for them by the bigger name brands. Same with JR Cigars, Carona Cigars, etc. Do the house blends compare with the better sticks made by the name brands or the cheaper sticks made by the name...

    So I did a little wandering around "the google" and came across this nice little excerpt that really helped me understand that what humidity is good at various temperatures. I keep my humis at about 60F and have been wondering more and more lately if the 76-ish RH is where its supposed to be or...

    OK, I did the "search" thing and I didn't find what I was looking for... so, I have been buying samplers off the devil site, all one brand and series, and was wondering.... why don't people buy the full sampler for a cheaper price than a box? Other than the box is more presentable than the...

    Question? I live Atlanta, I keep my humi in my basement and the temperature is rather cool but not quite cold. My humidor gage stays between 65 to 70+. But the last three sticks that I tried to burn didn't smoke nor burned well, the wrapper beginned to crack. This is a major problem. Is it too...

I want to share a nice short review of my second experience of nubbing a cigar. I mainly nub ISOM's because i want to enjoy and analyze the stick to the...
