  1. I found this reliable site that has 1, 3, 5 finger cigar bags for an excellent price ( USA only bc of shipping) Thought I'd share it with the group. Hope it helps? www.cigarbeads.com
  2. Greetings. It's that time of year again. CA has completed their yearly list. Time for ours. I've selected a sampling of the most recent releases, minus the special humidors. Those are too esoteric and hard to get. The poll focuses on the regular, EL, Reserva, GR and various LCDH offerings. Criteria is as follows: Please fill out the poll before it closes on Jan 2, 2020. You can select multiple choices in the poll as well.
  3. Brand new fresh as 50 cab ..and I know these are gonna be WAY to young to smoke,..but hey you have to try them to see whats going down!… FIRST IMPRESSIONS - well first off, the smell from the box is ..well hmm NEW as expected .very light barnyard smell and a touch of ammonia mixed with a woody (probably the box) scent. Light Claro wrapper with a slight oily sheen. DRY DRAW - pretty much what is coming from the box in the above comment. FIRST THIRD - very creamy from the kick off. Light cedar hit definitely has some ammonia in the cigar as expected, the la
  4. https://i.postimg.cc/0NjCLTzC/20190822-211810.jpg Hello guys i bought these but something smells fishy can you tell if fake by the photo? Since i dont have any experience about cigars yhanks
  5. Though our various branches of governments continue to make tobacco enjoyment miserable and costly, there is evidence that things used to be better. A while back I looked at some of the digital archives of the Toronto Public Library and found these gems. If anyone has any details to add, please forward them to me and I will edit them. 1881-1885 John Thorpe Cigars. (Business Card) This is the oldest reference I could find. The original building is lone gone and has housed the old Toronto City Hall for quite some time. 1935 Samuel Davis Cigar store (Bathurt and D
  6. Not a great deal of love for these sticks really…but I think they are so underrated . They usually have this wonderful salty nature to them..this is an 08’ box which I have recently opened and so far they have been very very nice, lets see if this one is of the same calibre ! DRY DRAW - very open ..a bit to open for my liking I prefer a slight pull..it just means I have to slow up so that I don’t over heat things. CONSTRUCTION- very good..this is a firm stick with no soft spots .there is also a slight box press too. FIRST THIRD - nice opening of toasted tobacco an
  7. I have to say these are without doubt one of THE most underrated cigars on the market for me, with a couple of years age on them ..they are superb ..and the best bit…they are CHEAP !! supposedly discontinued in 2012 but still about! Its a Lonsdale size which is perfect for me. COLD DRAW - slight woody/cedar taste with some floral bread/toast notes…slight tug I have punched this stick..but its a good draw. the cigar has oily complexion or a mottled look to it with a well packed foot. FIRST THIRD - nice opening of a honey sweetness and wait for it..no surpr
  8. So here we have for review for a la corona petit caronas from 1991. these were a machine made cigar that were restarted around 1989 for the eastern bloc countries, they were distributed to Hungary and Bulgaria etc. they are not the prettiest of cigar i must say, a very lumpy wrapper with a lot of discolouration ..but the smell of the cigars in the box is of a dried fruit reminiscent to dried raisins . DRY DRAW - perfect draw just a slight 'tug' and a faint aroma of the dried fruit ..interesting. FIRST THIRD - straight off -sweet honey in the smoke and on the wrapper, sl
  9. Hi all this is my first review on here so here goes ! now first off .. i am not big on flavours..i usually can not drag out multiple flavours in a cigar..either my tastebuds are knackered from drinking to much meths as a kid ..or my brain just isnt good enough...but all i know is i either like the cigar..or i don't ! so anyhow here we have a classic aged punch i have had sitting around for many years..which i love dearly....so lets see how it is today! COLD DRAW - it tastes like the smell of the cigars in the box..a wonderful woodsy / fungal mushroom flavour......wonder
  10. I'm going away on vacation in a couple of weeks, and I wanted to bring a big cigar with me to smoke on my last night at the resort. I have smoked the RyJ Churchill and thought it was just ok. I have smoked the HUSW and thought it was sublime. However this is the extent of my experience with Churchills and Double Coronas. So, my question to you FOH community, is which of the BIG BOYS would you reach for first? To level the playing field, let's say current regular production and nothing with more than 2 years of box age.
  11. I like a "Punch" as I tend to get less "tobacco" in my mouth and I think its a shame to waste that triple cap! Curious what everyone else uses? Tried to do a "poll" but never could get it to work.
  12. Howdy. I know of many, many USA BOTL who have good air purifiers like the Rabbit Air, and the Lightning Air... but there's next to no information for purifiers for Australian cigar smokers. Sure, there's a bunch of air purifiers that have Australian plugs and can work on 240v/50Hz, but I don't know if they're any good for us cigar smokers in Australia. So I'm asking for a recommendation for cigar smokers in Australia who have an air purifier that actually works, and eliminates stale cigar smoke smell. I have no budget, and am looking for suggestions. All suggestions and advice is
  13. A couple of months ago I was in Geneva Switzerland at Gerard Cigars, I bought a couple of Vintage Habanos. Started to smoke a Saint Luis Rey Churchill, great white ash, straight burn, I was very proud of the long ash this great Cigar was producing. All of a sudden the same persona that sold me this great Habano, told me that leaving the Ash in exchange for the Instagram Picture was a great mistake. Since according to him, the Long Ash changes the taste and flavor of any Habano. According to him, only 1-2 inches should be allowed in order to have the pure taste of the Habano. So la
  14. Hello my friends I have a question. I'm interested in buying a gold or silver cigar band ring. Not sure where to find these at and well.. I got fat hand/fingers got fat so my wedding band doesn't fit anymore and I ask wife if that would be a good wedding band.... ? she said yes so I'm trying to find someone that makes them. Thanks. Robert Rogers
  15. Was at an Antique market last weekend and scoured the booths looking for cigar stuff. Didn't find too much, but I did grab a few goodies. First off. 1 full and 1 partial cigar mold. The vendor picked up 37 pairs in Germany recently and stated these are from te 1902 - 1905 time frame. I picked up the last of what she had. Partial mold. Front view. 10 slots for figurado style panatelas judging from the size. \ Back view. Not much to look at. You can make out a groove where the vice made contact with the wood when the cigars were pressed. Side View: The wo
  16. Looking for some cigar gifts for some buddies of mine. Bought them some Lotus torches that have already fallen apart. Cigars would be great, of course, but I'm not sure they both have humidors. Wondering if there is something durable and cool that I haven't thought about. Thanks!
  17. Was poking around archive.org last night and gathered up a few interesting links. Some of these go way back to a time when tobacco/cigars were a huge part of the economy. Some samples below and of course you can do your own searches. Want to know how much raw tobacco it takes to make N quantity of cigars? This one is for you.

  18. I am living Vietnam, I like Cohiba cigars and Padron, I always smoke cigar at morning with my friends. I write all of cigar, how to smoke, how to roll,.... Good luck for all!!!
  19. Our good friend Hamlet Paredes has placed #23 in Cigar Journal's Top 25 of 2016 with his Tabaquero Toro. That is a huge achievement! Congratulations Hermano! Hamlet at #23
  20. So this is the sitch... Basically I want a really nice corner in my kitchen that will have both wine and cigars. From the research I've done, I can get split-temperature fridges, but this is much more focused at the wine enthusiast, and has limitations (such as humidity control only available at cellaring temperatures - 12-14c). In the long-run, I think I'll need 2 separate, small wine fridges, one of which I could convert for cigar use, one stacked on top of the other. This would be a great piece for the kitchen and look amazing. Does anyone have any ideas of how I can accomplish a
  21. Evening... Heading to Toronto tomorrow for 3 days. I've been a fair amount but usually never have time to kill. Other than La Casa Del Habano and Thomas Hinds I don't really "shop around" or know too many shops. A quick internet search shows many more but in some of the reviews I see things like "great hookah selection" along with pictures of "water pipes" which makes me usually steer clear of some. Maybe unfounded? Looks like Metro Cigar might be a good place to visit...any others that I should see for selection and/or price? Also best cigar friendly upscale bar/restaurant? Th
  22. Hi guys. I'm looking to splurge a bit and buy my first regional box. What would you recommend? Por Larranaga Belicosos Extra? Saint Luis Rey Pacificos? Juan Lopez #4? or Punch Sabrosos??? How are they lately?
  23. Some people say there is no sick period for cigars right now. You can smoke directly from the box, and some say you need to wait at least 3 years to smoke a cigar. What do you think about it and what is your experiences about it?
