Re: Cigars (The Humidor)


I'm so new to cigars I still don't know if I'm giving good info on what I've tried, so take whatever I say with a grain of salt.

However I will say this, I've tasted some nasty ass sticks that allowed me the ability to appreciate a good one when I smoke it.

Let's be honest here, if we cut our cigar rating system down the the finest elements it's really a pass or fail. If you're spitting out acrid mouthfuls of sour smoke flavour and you toss that dog rocket 3/4 the way through then it's a fail...if you burned that son of a bitch down to the nub it's a pass.

This is true, but it's not static. I have had some stick after a few years and like wine, my tastes have changed. I still don't like them spicy or too peppery and will toss one after a 1/3 of the way through.

I'm not a fan of peppery either. However I've tried some that only had a pepper flavor within the first 1". After that they were gooder than ****.

Re: Cigars (The Humidor)


Five years ago my brother and I bought a 31 foot vintage air stream trailer and converted it into a mobile cigar lounge for rent to weddings /bachelor parties etc. Six tvs (one on the outside under a cover) , automatic satellite TV attenae, Playstation, six foot tall humidor, indoor and outdoor sound systems, etc

Sold and delivered it two years ago to some dudes in Vancouver. Hauled it from Michigan to Seattle in one epic mother fuxking road trip that I will never forget.

She was called "The Cuban Missile" and she was awesome. Two powered ceiling vents kept the air almost perfectly clear. Cigars (The Humidor)-cuban-missile-interior.jpg

Re: Cigars (The Humidor)


Gentlemen this may just be the perfect everyday smoker I've found.
The Leaf goes dark

"I donít know if Iíve ever heard more calls for us to carry a brand than the droves of CI Nation demanding Leaf by Oscar. Originally starting in Pittsburgh, PA, the Leaf by Oscar has swept the nation, delivering their four boutique brands to cigar enthusiasts everywhere. And Iíll be honest, when they landed here we conducted a little scientific ďtaste-testĒ across the line, and they all fit easily under the ďwinĒ column.

The fullest-bodied of the four offerings, this Maduro is a gorgeous specimen. And before you peek at our picture and wonder what the hell Iím talking about, remember that youíre supposed to remove that outer leaf before lighting up. Underneath, youíll find a slick, dark cigar, glistening with oils. Each sample I scarfed down gave off a thick, honey-like sweetness, with notes of chocolate and black pepper in the mix. Itís a most satisfying combination, especially with a bourbon in the other hand, and Iíd recommend you give it a shot today."

I smoke it till it burns my fingers!


Mike.

I know! I've been watching this thread for a bit. Just seemed like work to type that up even though it wasn't.

I would kill to have that toy back. Man was it a fun thing to have parked next to my barn

My local brick and mortar sells them for 11.00 a stick. If I buy a case they take 25% off.

So I was in the US on the weekend and I bought a Connecticut Leaf and it was decent. Started off a little tannic but got good after the first inch. Didn't blow my socks off and it was 8 bucks US.

Guy at the cigar shop said they are good but not worth the money.

I think it's worth 8 bucks...but it didn't wow me.

Re: Cigars (The Humidor)


You guys ever get snuffers remorse?

You take a last pull, grind the nub into ashtray, then say, "damn, I still wanted that."

I just did that and now I'm bummed. I had at least 2-3 minutes left on that thing.
