wrapper

  1. General Cigar Discussion
    I decided to have an RP decade, the toro that comes in the tube (came with 3 golf balls). I got them probably five months ago, chucked them in the cooler. Anyways, the wrapper was in bad shape (I think the tube kept humidity out). It split near the foot, then started peeling loose at the seam...

    One day while smoking, reading and relaxing, I was looking at the tobacco wrapper of my cigar through my reading glasses and noticed innumerable tiny spikes sticking out of the tobacco right before the burn line. This happens on any cigar I smoke. Too small to see with the naked eye. Need a...

    So the wife and I stopped in at a local B&M tonight to have a few drinks and a smoke. They had some Liga Privada T52's that I had not tried before, and since I really enjoy the #9, I figured I'd try one. About half way through I hear a weird pop sound I had never experienced before and when I...

    I'm just wondering how would you guys describe it? It's certainly unique but I can't quite say what the flavor reminds me of. It's just so herbal. Floral? Vegetal?

    So I picked up a Grand Harbno from my local shop and while smoking the wrapper started to unravel the binder and filler stayed in place without any issues but the wrapper pretty much just came on off...What could have caused this? -Matt

    I recently received my Aristocrat M+ Deep. Conditioned it for a week. Cigars had been stable around 67 in a 200 ct humi and a cooler before moving them into the Aristocrat stable at 65. Now a week later every cigar I light (except for my opus) the wrapper cracks up in the first half inch. It...

    My sons and me are always looking for "the perfect golf cigar". We like a long-high ring count stick that lasts 7-8 holes and is not too strong. Also, since smoking cigars at the golf course does not lend itself to full enjoyment of a great cigar, we like less expensive sticks. We recently...

    I visited the "other B&M" a couple weeks ago because they carry Lampe Berger fuel. I was looking for a specific scent (either clean cotton or neutral) and all they had was crap that no one wanted that was left over from their original order. I asked for the specific scents and the guy behind...

    I was under the impression that all Opus X had the same Rosado wrapper. What accounts for the difference in color? My XXX and Super Beli's are great deal darker than my Double Corona and Double Robusto. The references I find just list them all as the same.

    When you purchase your single cigars that are not boxed (say a sample pack, purchased singles, etc.) do you leave on the cigar cellophane wrapper or remove from the wrapper when storing in your Humidor/ Wineador/ Coolerdor/ etc? I did a search looking for a full voting thread on this I'm sure...

    It must have been 10 years ago when I read a story about Sun grown wrappers becoming the trend in the industry. A few years ago, I read Connecticut Shade leaf is the most sought after leaf in the world. Can this generality be made? Recently (I think it was yesterday) I read the wrapper is...

    Can someone post a link or offer their understanding of CT Shade Leaf wrapper grades? I'm going to be buying a bale (my first) and I want to be sure to get the best grade for my purposes. The difference in price on different grades is obviously in the thousands of dollars, so I need to make...

    I got my hands on a box of the Graycliff Limitads. They are a good smoke, grat flavor from start to finish, my issue is the wrapper. It seems that as soon as you pass that inch to inch and a half, it starts to explode. If you remove the band, it will start even sooner. They were in my Humi for...

    A while back I stated in a thread that I thought that a designation like "Habano" for a wrapper (and/or the use of phrases like "grown from the finest cubin orgin seed stock" or whatever) was mostly marketing. I was told, in so many words, that I was wrong and I was missing out if I was...
