    Are you the newest newb...? (PART 3)

    Illusione ~MK~ Photographic Review

    Today, the weather said 66*, but I swear it felt like upper 80's from the balcony. I decided to share this morning with an Illusione MK that I picked up at Tobacco World... I grabbed 2 while I was there. Since my septoplasty in September, my ability to pick out flavors has been stunted it...

    Smoking after a septoplasty...

    I've come across a very disturbing problem. I enjoy cigars (obviously... I'm here), however, since my septorhinoplasty (deviated septum and nasal bone correction) every cigar I have smoked has pretty much tasted like crap. Even my go to cigars. I'm getting all these horrendous flavors that I...

    Long-Term Storage

    I'm looking at setting my 52-quart cooler up for some long-term storage. My display humi and desktop will be used for regular rotation/bombs/etc. My question is: what beads should I get for it? I heard that for long term aging, lower RH is desirable... would 60% be good or should I just get...

    What have I done now?!

    I know what I've done... bought more space to occupy. It's a bit prettier than a cooler though, eh? As an aside... assuming this holds humidity and such, how much would you think something like this would be worth? I just wanna make sure I paid a fair price. Dimensions are: 31"x12"x14"

    Don Lino African Kuro

    The retailers take: Made in Nicaragua, this blend is a work of art. In fact, Don Lino Africa is a cigar you may be tempted to walk over your fellow man to get. It&#8217;s a complex offering composed of Habano-seed wrappers with long leaf filler tobaccos hail from Honduras, Nicaragua, Dominican...

    1-on-1 Blind Taste Test
