  1. Horrible news out just now!

    I will really miss him, rarely do celebrity deaths make me feel anything(the latest I can remember that struck me even harder was Leonard Cohen's death). Loved the guy. I remember first hearing of Bourdain when I was 7 years old... May he rest now more peacefully. Anyway, I remember a reading a very old thread about Bourdain in Cuba, and how he didn't smoke any cigars. Well I found this in a video of him in Quebec. I think he may be smoking a HDM Des Dieux, but I am not sure.... Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using Tapatalk
  2. I assume at around the same price point, for less tobacco, you can get a box of ERDM Demi Tasse. I generally keep at least a box of low price cigars in my humidor in case my main sticks haven't rested enough, or there is any "scheduling backfire"... Unfortunately the source which is at my nearest disposal which has quality cigars only has the following in a similar price point(97-120 euro): - ERDM Demi Tasse - Fonseca KDT Cadetes - H Upmann Half Corona - H Upmann Majestics - Partagas Super Partagas - Partagas Habaneros - Partagas Coronas Especiales - Partagas Aristocrats - Partagas Mille Fleurs - Por Larranaga Montecarlo - Rafael Gonzalez Perla - Romeo y Julieta Belvederes - Romeo y Julieta Mille Fleurs - Romeo y Julieta Petit Julietas I am one of those smokers with a sweet tooth, a cigar has to be either sweet ( caramel, brown sugar, molases etc) or fruity... And I know some cheap cigars can be quite rough, but which cigar is the smoothest of these? Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using Tapatalk
  3. For sweetness or fruitiness which do you recommend most? Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using Tapatalk
  4. The title is self explanatory... Probably should have added it to the Cheap & Cheerful area... Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using Tapatalk
  5. do you ever take a cigar break?

    Generally I smoke about 1-2 a week. But in the past 2 months I took a break because I didn't have any rested cigars, and I hate ROTT ones. But now that summer is about to start, in a month I will smoke up to 1 cigar a day (or more but then I will take a break), depends on how I feel... Maybe less, will see...

  8. Strangely enough, it first happened to me when my cigars were too dry(for my taste), at 62 rh, registered by 3 hygrometers. With 2 month rest. Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using Tapatalk
  9. Do an experiment for me, smoke two of the same cigars, light one up with a torch lighter, and one with matches (generally I cut the tip of the match and light the other end to make sure it doesn't have any chemicals), not much toasted, and one with a torch lighter. Touch the place near the lit foot of the cigar, from what I know, if the cigar burns you when you touch it 1-2 centimeters from there it is burning too hot. And also try to see if you notice any difference in flavour. I swear, if I am not having gustatory hallucinations, the one lit with a match, that doesn't scold you when you touch it, will always taste better... Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using Tapatalk
  10. As the title suggests, what do you light your cigars with?(and how?) In December I bought myself a Colibri lighter, but I found that I rarely used it because I noticed that since the flame is much hotter it let to the cigars overheating. And even if I paced myself by taking a puff every 3 minutes it wouldn't recover, it would remai hot even after going out. That is why I generally use matches or preferably cedar spills, and rarely, generally if outdoors, a soft flame lighter. Do you toast your cigar? The method I found works best in lighting a cigar without it being hot is lighting before cutting it, but of course you miss the prelight draw, but I guess you could draw on the foot of the cigar instead, and it works pretty much the same.

  11. I have a friend there who buys from them all the time, who claimed that he mostly buys singles, but that they always let him check to box code, but reality vs story-telling, so you might certainly be right. Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using Tapatalk
  12. I forgot to also ask, out of line as it may be, any specific box codes for each brand to look out for? (2016-17) Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using Tapatalk
  13. Thank you, Rob. When I come back I will post some pictures with the product, fingers crossed... Sent from my Moto G (5S) Plus using Tapatalk
  14. I know many people are sceptical about the importance of wrapper shade in the flavour of the cigar, but in my short time of smoking I have I found it to be important.(I know many of you say that you find it makes no sense to have the wrapper leaf be the most important one if it is less than 10% of the cigar). Anyway, I am going to Belgium next week, and I am going to Bruxelles, Anvers, Bruges, Gent and Knokke, where I heard they have a wonderful LCDH. There I plan to buy at least one cigar of each type from all the brands, and from what I have heard they allow the customer to look for a specific wrapper colour. (Even though I have been smoking for over a year, I have had mixed experiences with the cigars in my country, so I am still not sure from the cigars I didn't enjoy which were bad due to storage etc and which were just not my taste). Anyway, I was wondering if any of you would so kindly give me a sort of wrapper colour or shade that best suits a brand's profile, so that I can get a general idea of what to look for. I have heard that some brands sport a different predominant flavour based on wrapper. (i.e. Montecristo - if the wrapper is darker it can have accentuated chocolate notes, while a lighter shade might give off more of an emphasis on a cream character). I hope this doesn't sound completely mad... If I am out of line, than I apologise... I thank the other Brothers of Leaf for the kind support, I truly appreciate it...
