    Cheap Cigars & Humidors

    So I put the 19 A Turrent San Andres maduros in tuppador with a boveida pack and I got to wondering...do cheap cigars benefit from Humidors or is it a pointless exercise?

    Hygrometers

    Guys, steer me in the right direction. I would like a digital hygrometer, something small, cheap and that works. I have a 25 Cigar humidor at the moment and it’s hard for me to read the analog unit I have in it.

    More Ashtray Than Flavor

    Been smoking an Oliva Connecticut petite corona and instead of getting a sweetness and flavor I'm getting mostly ashtray mouth. Draw was tight in beginning. Truth is I used Diamond wood matches to light it but surely that wouldn't be the issue?

    Quorum

    Has anyone tried them? A local store has a few if these and I bought one. It's getting some time in the humidor but I'm interested in hearing your opinions until then.

    Shipping Woes

    Finally got my cigar club order. I don't understand how UPS can take possession from an adjoining state, cross my state to another adjoining state then it's delivered by the US postal service 10 days from time product was dropped off with UPS. I just...I...I just don't get it.

    Infused

    So I've been seeing these infused cigars, coffee or whatnot. I'm not sure how I feel about them so I'd like to call you all out for your opinions on infused cigars.

    How Do You Cut Yours?

    While back I received a free 2 in 1 cutter. Now that I finally got to light up a cigar, I wondered what the second thingie was and looked it up...a V cutter! Online I also saw what looked like a fancy pair of scissor like cutters as well as a punch. So the question gents is this, which method...

    Break Out Your Good Stuff

    Fellow pipers, break out your best stuff and celebrate a bowl with me in honor of my oldest son. He was accepted by West Point! All that hard work and smarts paid off...must get it from his mother. "Dad, how do you feel about me being an officer?" he asked with proud tears in his eyes. I said...

    Cutting Back

    Since I'm a bit of an infrequent when I get the time or the itch to smoke a bowl type, I have this feeling these days of cutting back. Like, to 2 or 3 blends if that. I've got too many, way too many blends stashed away. I've got tins of blends I haven't tried yet and I have jars of baccy I don't...

    Cumberland Twist

    Has anyone ever smoked Cumberland Twist in a pipe and how was it? Saw a package of it at a store and thought if it was worth trying.

    Sudden Loose Stem

    I have a pair of Parker's that I don't smoke often, one hardly at all. This last one had a snug fit with stem and stummel yet when I picked it out to check it the tenon slipped free of the mortise without any noticeable friction. It won't fall out but it makes me wonder if it will with a bowl of...

    Storing Long Flakes

    How do you jar the flakes that come as long flakes such as Sutliff Va slices? I'm using pint Ball jars.

    Virginia Sabbatical

    I just can't get the hang of Virginia's. I don't smoke a pipe that often which I'm sure is just one reason why. I like the simplicity of my Burley, English and American blends and so VAs just don't get a lot of love in my rotation. I just get all twisted with jealousy at the VA smokers waxing at...

    Esoterica & TP

    I am wondering if the same people who buy up and hoard all the Esoterica are the ones doing the same with toilet paper? Hmmm...

    What's That Smell?

    Package came today and part of it was a new MM Country Gentleman cob with the dark finish. I was inspecting the pipe when I caught a whiff of something...chemical. I can swear that there's the smell of something akin to nail polish remover, like an acetone. I've never noticed the smell before...

    RIP Robert Conrad

    Just heard the news. I loved this guy growing up. Spent many an afternoon after school watching Wild Wild West and Baa Baa Blacksheep.
