    State of the Brand: Tatuaje Not sure if I agree with the direction of Tatuaje but Pete sure does pump out more cigars than Rocky Patel now. I just wish I saw the consistency of his older brown labels in his new releases. So to my questions: What are your plans for the 2011 releases of...

    0 Post Count Users

    I know this has been brought up at other locations in the forum but as far as I can see there hasn't been much movement in any direction. Is there going to be a rule regarding the removal of zero post count users after a certain period of time? With the recent "pop-ins" I think there should...

    Dorm Police Aren't Happy

    Today I received an email from the front desk saying they are pressing charges based on the recent damages cause by a package in my mailbox. The only person that could be held responsible for this is John (jorel). Brother, when I am back home and around my arsenal, you will feel the wrath of...

    Where should a CC virgin start?

    First off I would like to say that I have indeed had less than 10 cubans in my life and the reason for asking this overasked question is because I am tempted in dabbling in them to see what I like. Majority of them I smoked were Cohiba Siglo VI, which were good. But while I smoked them I felt...

    Padron Millenium

    Hey Guys. I have been given the chance to purchasing a full humidor of these for $6500 from a friend. Do you think that paying $65/each makes sense? I don't really have the money like that but I wonder if I could sell the humidor there after to subsidize the costs. What are your thoughts? I am...

    Cabinet Humidor

    Below is my new cabinet made by Dave Novelli from Custom Creations. The professionalism and quality shown by him (and his team?) was top notch.

    A very interesting article I might add. Even though this applies to cigarettes, cigar smokers face the same kind of mentality daily. Something funny I heard on the radio yesterday about the new smoking ban in Michigan was: Non-smokers go to...
