  1. The Photography Thread

    Great thread! Enjoyed all the pics. I've been a hobbyist landscape photographer for close to 20 years now. Not always fun to lug a camera/tripod around the wilderness, but I love capturing the beauty of nature.

  3. You may consider giving the PerfecDraw a go. It's a poker that actually grabs a bit of tobacco. Google it. There was a thread here about it a while back. I have a handful of rock solid tent pegs in my humidor and so far, have to been able to rescue them with this tool. I think the best defense against firm draws is storing your cigars in the low 60s and aging them for a good long time. Not exactly a quick fix, more of a long term strategy...but nothing smokes as beautifully as a well aged Cuban.

  5. Excellent discussion MRN obviously has great passion for the topic, and I respect that. I would venture to guess that he comes across much different in person than on a computer screen. I could not be a bigger proponent of science, but to me the enjoyment of cigars seems mostly incompatible with it. Store and smoke cigars how you like them
  6. I actually like 10 count boxes, but I think that is largely because 1) I don't smoke that much and 2) I like diversity in my collection. It is also a less costly way to try a new cigar, without going the singles route. So in general I am in favor of 10 counts as well as petacas, tins, etc.
  7. Congrats on your progress, hope you can work through sounds like it really sucks! I'm not a doctor or dentist but you should probably avoid the alcohol based mouthwash though. That burning sensation can be fun, but it is probably not helping your cause! I'd recommend giving the saltwater a go instead.

    Very glad you enjoyed the experience my friend! If only they could all be like that!
  9. Understood, no worries. As mentioned above, your understanding is just not accurate. It is a broad discussion topic, but in general I would say that the strength differences between Cuban and certain non-Cuban cigars are due to many factors, not just blending. The idea has been discussed many times but there doesn't seem to be much incentive for Cuba to export premium cigar leaf in any major quantities, or evidence of it happening, at least that I am aware of.
  10. Uhhh....what? Are you sure you're not confusing blending differences between Cuban and non-Cuban cigars with other differences related to terroir, the use of different tobacco cultivars, and differing methods of cultivation and production?
  11. Congrats on a solid achievement! There is something uniquely satisfying about challenging yourself, training hard, and achieving your goal. Savor this.
  12. Been a runner for about a decade. I'd probably be considered a fast weekend warrior. I will occasionally pick up an age group top 3 in local races. Have raced up to the marathon distance on asphalt and 50k on trail. In my most aggressive training I've been at 60 miles/week, but nowadays more of a fitness runner banging out a strategic 10-15. Agree with El Hoze - I've never noticed any detriment due to cigars (though I don't smoke all that much), but booze is a killer.

    Damn science, ruining everybody's fun
  15. All in jest Ken, I didn't really see you as the reptile purchasing type Very true regarding designer breeding...though the folks at the reptile expositions look very different from those at the flower shows! Some good has come from captive bred reptiles has reduced pressure on wild populations, at least here in the US. The red, white and black snake that @JamesKPolkEsqposted above was hunted extensively here in California before captive bred specimens became widely available.
