  1. Newcomer (Newbie) Q&A

    There can be a superb run of a certain code and word spreads. People try to buy that code. Sometimes it is justified and sometimes it is an urban myth. OBM is justified (plenty of good and few bad) . TOS is a myth (plenty of good and plenty of bad) Best factories? Your Havana factories are the ones people want. El Laguito, Upmann, La Corona, Partagas etc. To say they are the best is unfair. Plenty of rubbish comes out of them. The Pinar factory Francisco Donatien I would put down as the worst or close to the worst. Where possible, buy the box and not the code.

    Empty cabs is my favourite method but it doesn't really matter. The most important thing is to FREEZE them

    If the RH and temp is right then the need for an air change is not a big issue. Remember many people shrink wrap cigars for long term aging.

  5. Spanning Time: A good 5-cent cigar A good article with some excellent photo's. You know when you think you have done something, and then find out that you have not done it at all. It’s a bit like that dream where you go to school and find out there is a big test that day and you didn’t know it (okay, maybe that was just my dream). I was sure that I had written about the cigar industry. I have touched on it in many pieces but realized that I never truly described how Binghamton became number two in the country for the manufacture of cigars, or how this area turned out 100 million cigars a year for a time.

  6. Factory codes

    No they are not. Generally the few Esplendido in boxes I saw in 2017 were generally from EL. MUL is not an EL code.
