    Like ligero? Try the Graffiti Liga2

    If you like the kick of a ligero stick. Try this one out from Habano wrapper, Nic fillers. More ligero than the regular Graffiti and a much smoother smoke. They dont have the pepperiness of a Pepin, more like a Litto blend. I have only had the PC size, but for a short 30-45...

    Palio cleaning tip

    Tonight when doing my bi-weekly Palio cleaning I discovered something that I had not seen before and thought I would share for the one or two BOTL's that own one.

    CFO Perfecto Maduro-Mini Review

    This had to be one of the strangest smokes I have ever had. I received it as an extra with my first wheel of the Blend #7. One thing I have found with the Blend #7 is that you really have to endure the first third before the stick...
