    Excellent brother of the leaf. I sent him some cigars a few months back just to try, and he hit me back now. A very nice selection also.

    An observation about aged NCs

    It actually looks to me like he is implying that YOU, not he, can sell them for more that was paid for them.:D

    An observation about aged NCs

    FWIW, I haven't had many aged cigars at all. Most that I have had have been CCs. I am truly starting to believe that I like fresh cigars better. Of course there are exceptions... for NC's - Padron Maduros only 6 years old blew away the already awesome fresh sticks. for CC's - Only a few stick...

    Casa torano: which do you prefer?

    One time I vote Natural. Torano does make some fine sticks at reasonable prices.

    Favorite Golf Course Smoke?

    I usually smoke 1 on the front and 1 on the back. If I tee in the morning, my go to for the front is a Tatuaje P series. Enough flavor to get you going, but won't overwelm you for the back nine smoke. Back nine could be anything, but rarely over a $5 smoke on the course for reasons stated...

    My first box/bundles of everyday's???

    I would go with the Sancho Panza or checkout Cigarbid or Cigars International for some 5 Vegas "A". The 5 Vegas robusto is called the Artisan. The box is $72 on CI, but can be had for $50 on Cigarbid. PM me your addy and I will give you a couple to try.

    Im in love

    I prefer the blacks over the blues. They have all the spice, but seem a little smoother on the nose to me. If you figure the whole Pepin line, give me a brown Tat anyday. Although the 601 line is growing on me quickly.

    Rub for Ribs

    I'm not as big a pro at ribs as you guys. I like a spicy rub and a somewhat sweet sauce. For a rub, I use Tone's Cajun Seasoning and some extra cayanne and black pepper, and a little brown sugar. I really need a good smoker though. My problem is getting something that I feel is big enough...

    I agree with everyone else, VSG's are much tastier. If you have the opportunity, do a side by side with a couple of smokers and I think you'll find the VSG is a much tastier smoke. While the ESG really isn't mild, it's not the type of cigar I would want after a nice dinner, while the VSG is...

    The Slippery Slope

    Nice to know that exists. How up to date is it? I searched a few things and it seems to not show auctions since May. Advice...weekly on auctions that end during the a big cooler....stick to 5ers until you decide if you like something or not.

    The doctor gave me some samples of this and it did work well, but my insurance said they wouldn't pay for it yet. I guess it's still to new. So back to so. As far as smoking with allergies, I notice if I take a couple days off, my allergies do get a little better. But I have...
