    Cigars In the $9-$12 Dollar Range

    EDIT: Fixed Capitalization in Title (See Rule 9) Hey guys im getting ready to order 3, 5 packs of cigars in the $9-$12 dollar range and could use some suggestions.

    Has Anyone Tried These?

    In my recent search, I just ordered 2 bundles, looking for affordable cigars that I can smoke daily. Heard about these listening to the Cigar Authority podcast. I'm familiar with Perdomo and have smoked some of those of a different kind, but never had a Gran Habano: Gran Habano 3 SLS Perdomo...

    Any Cigars in This Bundle Decent?

    Smoking about 2 cigars a day I was looking for an affordable alternative for a daily smoke and save some of my more expensive cigars for a special occasion. I think most of these are long fillers but what is a mixed filler? Here is the deal I found...

    A Trip to Cuba!

    Well not me, but I heard my cousin is taking a trip to Cuba, and I’m hoping he will have room to bring me back a box of cigars. Any recommendation for what brand of cigar he should look for?

    Is 73% Humidity Too Much?

    I’ve had my humidor for about a week and a half now with about 75 cigars in it for a week since i seasoned it, and the humidity is a constant 73%. Is this too high? I’m using 4 bovida 72% and 3 Drymistat 70% silicon bead tubes Maybe i should use a lower percent bovida pack?

    Whoas Me: the SPICE

    So as I mentioned in a previous post, I am fairly new to cigars, though I have been smoking a pipe for 6 or 7 years. Around the age of 23 I got what turned out to be a 1 to 2 pack a day cigarette habit which I gladly kicked in 2006 at the age of 33. I picked up the pipe in 2013, and what a...

    Cracked the Mortise of My New Pipe

    I was into my second bowl of Lane Virginia #1 when my pipe got clogged. So like an idiot I pulled the stem out which was a very tight fit, and when i put it back in the briar cracked by the mortise. It still smokes fine, its a $75 La Rocca Baron. Usually stems are tight with a new pipe, and i...

    What's Your Favorite Cherry Tobacco?

    I once had a great cherry tobacco called Dark Cherry Delight, I'm not sure on the name but couldnt find it anywhere on Pipes and Cigars where i found it the first time.The casing on that tasted kind of chemical though which i dont like about any tobacco with casings. Normally I smoke Vaper...

    Looking to cut costs on pipe tobacco

    I've been spending about $80 a month on tinned tobacco, and I'm looking to figure out how to spend less. Sure I've cut down on smoking, but I think bulk might be the way to proceed. So, what is a good bulk flake, preferably a VaPer, that does not come wet and require extensive drying, that can...

    I damaged my new pipe

    My new rusticated Dublin; about 6 or 7 smokes in, I didn't realize it was hot, and I noticed the side of the bowl smoking... it's a little blackened on the side but still salvagable. Will this problem accelerate into a full burnout?

    Looking for a good cavendish blend

    Ok so I've been smoking mostly vapers and latakia blends, but have tried Davidson's Danish Mixture which was a nice smoke early when I was first trying things. Not sure I want a really artificial tasting smoke, hated Lane Hazelnut... so any good blends that are based on a good cavendish... I...

    Ecigarettes and unregulated tobaco products?

    I saw on CNN or whatever cable channel shows congress in action, that they were putting through legislation either yesterday or today on e-cigarettes and other unregulated tobacco products (pipe tobacco and cigars?) and was wondering if anyone has heard anything about this?
