    Staebell controller and fan upgrade....it's....alive...!!

    Finally finished up, seems to be running great..!! Took pics of the whole job, will post in a bit. Went relatively smooth, one minor bit of fabrication required but not a big deal. That was my fault for putting bigger re-circ fans in the cabinet...but I'm really glad I did. I'll let it run...

    Annual Maintenance..??

    Yesterday, I did an annual maintenance job that I'm trying to do on at least an annual basis....though I'm trying to do this a couple times a year. I took every box of cigars in my cabinet out. Each one got opened up and given a good look over, the wonderful smells got enjoyed, and they got...

    Merciless bombing from TX.....major hit....

    ...so, I get a box today from some guy named Ed that is known to like dogs, specifically pugs. Well, I like dogs too so I took the chance and opened it up. Bombed to pieces doesn't cover it.....what a hit. Ed, you nailed me beyond words with some great sticks. Brother, I'll smoke every...

    Box opening and review - TATUAJE T110 "Thermonuclear"

    Some of us may remember the Tatuaje T110 from almost a decade ago. If I recall accurately, Tatuaje did a small production run, then a dealer in Hawaii talked them into making another 200 or so boxes. I scored two of those boxes; one to smoke, one to hang onto. Well, today's the day for the...

    Oh please......

    Saw this on another forum. Submitted for your analysis......:rolleyes: “The reputation of Cuban cigars has worsened over the years among true cigar aficionados. While you may still find a great regard for Cubans, it is not unlikely to find those that invest in cigars completely convert to only...

    Belated Bomb Report - Corneighdo strikes on target

    Up front, apologies for the belated report of a bombing. Been involved with a complete desktop PC upgrade, work going crazy, some other things keeping me busy, but I had to report some incoming ordinance that smacked me around pretty well and caused mailbox damage. Corneighdo, out of the blue...

    CigSid's Bomb Review Contest - Montecristo Sublimes LE 2008

    There are cigars, and there are….cigars. Thanks to the generosity of Bill, I had one that was truly one of my ‘holy grail’ cigars to smoke, and one that I couldn’t wait to review it for this event; a Montecristo Sublimes LE 2008. Visually, this wonderful cigar is a bit deceiving; if this...

    Hit, and hit hard...!!

    Just got a package with some amazing smokes from none other than that CigSid guy. To say these were surprising and over the top would be a gross understatement..!! Bill, I cannot say 'thank you' enough..!! Rest assured, every one of these lovely and well aged sticks is in very serious risk of...

    What's in your cigar rotation right now...??

    Thought it would be interesting to see what other folks are smoking right now. Let me preface this with the statement that I'm lucky enough to have a ton of different cigars in my cabinet. And, I love variety. So, what I smoke daily changes up depending on what's available, and what's smoking...

    The name is Bond....James Bond

    Roger Moore has passed away at the age of 89. His portrayal of James Bond was a good one, a great addition to that story line. Rest well, Mr. Moore..... http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2017/05/23/roger-moore-dead-james-bond-actor-was-89.html

    The 'Filthy Hooligan'....really...??

    Guys, these are really decent cigars for the price. This one was literally 40 mins off the UPS truck and it smoked like a champ. I've split a box of these with Gary Roberti (Ironpeddler) for the last few years and have never regretted the purchase. These are round, 6X50, and of course from Alec...

    New favorite cutter....just maybe

    I had a cheap v-cutter that I experimented with and when it worked properly, I really liked the results. I really like my Xikar punch, but for the bigger ring sticks, I wanted to open them up a bit more. I finally got around to ordering a Xikar VX V-Cut in Gunmetal. I'm seriously impressed...

    There's bombed, and there's really mercilessly bombed.....

    Did the front end of a box split with Ed (Pugman1943) and it went perfectly. Ed PP'd me the cash before I could get his sticks in the mail, flawless transaction. Sending bags of cigars that are 3/5 full never sits well with me, so I added a couple from the island of misfit dictators that I...
