    5 Vegas Gold Toro

    I think I have the same experience as you do, just a different flavor palette; I'm not very wild for mild. But, I definately think it would pair well with coffee since it can take the harshness out of it if you drink your coffee black (like myself). Also, with an excellent draw, even and slow...

    New Orleans Cigar Factory

    Stickies for information. The way I got my start, and I would recommend it to anyone if you are willing to spend a bit more money, is to find a local B&M with good selection, and ask the owner what he thinks about different cigars. Some people like a full body cigars, others like them mild...

    What makes you want particular cigar?

    Nothing too strong, nothing too mild; just right as Goldie Locks said. I want something that is made of tobacco but doesn't taste of it. It has to be complex but not too complex, but it has to have flavor, but just enough so not more or less. If all else fails, something that isn't harsh!

    Slope? What Slope?

    Woah, I thought I had it bad. Since I really got into it the last 30 days or so, I've got only 100ish cigars this month albeit mainly Fuente's, and Hemingways; bought a case of Hemingway Signature to from tccigar today to boot heh.

    When was the last time you were WOWED...

    AF Hemmingway Signature, the first review I ever did and it wasn't too long ago since I started less than 2 months ago. I've tried quite a few other brands and taste afterward, but I still remember the beauty of that cigar and I doubt I will ever forget it.

    Hygrometer at Wal-Mart

    Same as the above ones, I've got the Acu Rite, 4% too low and I'm pretty sure the thermostat is wrong; it's showing 85 when it's 70 at most. Still, for $8 and no shipping or waiting, I would definately purchase another one.

    Padron 3000

    Good to hear, yeah beginning was OK but the flavor definately got better as it got down. A bit of followup information. I felt quite sick after 10 minutes, and I tried to lay down to settle myself. My stomache started to roil, and I felt the need to vommit. I assume this is the nicotine though...
