    FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    my first QDO No 54 MSU AGO 18
  2. This is the first time I’ve tried this cigar. (I’ve previousely tried a single No 50 and several of the older band coronas). It came from a box of 10 and has been resting in my humi for about 2 months. For me - this was a subtle flavored cigar at this point, so bear with me as I try to describe some of the flavors. Initial draw: good draw with a hint of sweetness and a hint of cinnamon First third: light bodied with subtle hints of hay and cinnamon. Second third: hay, hint of sweetness showing up along with nuances of a praline dusted with cinnamon and cumin. Wonderful aroma. Last third: delicious subtle flavors all coming together wonderfully. Transitioning to light bodied +. The last of the last third showing some youthful edges. Conclusion: This is a very young cigar. The flavors at this points were subtle and nuanced all the way through, but the flavors that were there were delicious. I predict that this will be a wonderful cigar with some more age.

    Split wrapper HELP

    I've had good results using cigar glue and a 'donor' cigar wrapper. I keep a few cigars around that may be plugged or severely damaged (ie 'donor'/non-smokable), and gently remove the wrapper, the best that you can. You can then cut a small amount (patch) from that wrapper and glue over the damaged good cigar. It helps to moisten the donor wrapper before gluing, so that it will adhere better. Let it dry for a couple of minutes and you should be good to go. It doesn't always look pretty (if the wrapper colors don't match), but who cares as it will smoke fine. I keep the donor wrappers in a baggie and keep it the humidor for future repairs.

    In search of tea notes in a cigar.

    I've gotten a tea note from a few of the Hoyo San Juans that I've tried.

  7. Welcome, and thanks for the great review!
  8. I'm going to try to hold off, and smoke one every 3-6 months to see how they are progressing. It's take will power, as they are really good right now.

    Who here home brews?

    I've been homebrewing as a hobby for about 20 years now. It all started from a beginner's kit that I received as a gift from my girlfriend at the time. I've never looked back since! I make 5-6 gallon batches at a time, now using all grain recipes. I have a spare refrigerator that I've set up with Johnson controls thermostat so that I can optimally ferment at most any temperature that is specified with the yeast strain. Is it worth it? I feel it is worth it, as you can brew some delicious fresh custom beers that to me taste better than most commercial brands. If you enjoy cooking, this is similar - so that if you enjoy a certain flavor characteristic an any beer, you can add more of that ingredient to your beer recipe. Cost wise, I don't think that I save a lot of money homebrewing as compared to store bought beer. It's also a little time consuming to brew, however, as it's a labor of love. The payoff for me is having a party or get-together and serving your fresh beer from the keg, and gauging people's responses. Lot's of people are blown away, and that makes it fun. These days, I tend to brew for special occassions - friends/family visiting here from out of town/state, birthdays, Christmas, St Paddy's day, etc. The last beer that I brewed was on Oktoberfest style beer, that was a big hit with my friends.
