    Latakia Paradox?

    For me, Latakia is best consumed sparingly and as condiment. I do like it, but only in moderation.

    Cheap Cigars & Humidors

    I've been using a tuppador for a couple of years and it works great for me. I also only keep around 75 cigars at a time. I've no plan to horde cigars like I do pipe tobacco.

    Life After McClelland

    I think SPC Mississippi River scratches my McClelland itch to an extent. There is still nothing like McClelland.

    Could Ghosting Actually be a Good Thing?

    I love the way McClelland VA ghosts my pipes. It is short lived, maybe for one bowl, but it adds something I enjoy.

    Candelas That Are Good

    I smoke a variety of wrappers but am not a daily cigar smoker and never will be. I only smoke a few cigars a week. My wife hates the smell on me. I am guessing that I would need to smoke cigars daily to refine my palate.

    Candelas That Are Good

    I'm enjoying the Fuente Flora Fina Claro, which is very green like candela. Fairly mild with a pungent room note. I'd like to try the 858 candela too. I enjoy mild cigars though, and am no snob. I like several affordable cigars.

    Bye Bye Nat Sherman

    I ordered some of their cigars to try before they are gone for good. I knew the rebranding was a long shot. I've enjoyed what I've smoked by them.
