    what's up w/Opus X?

    i was at my local today picking up a few sticks & noticed something different-on the box of Perfection 4's they had, there was an additional label that said "Serie X"-the boxes of Perfection X's & robustos didn't have this xtra tag-anyone know what the deal is?-TIA

    RyJ cabinet selection

    Picked up one of the corona sizes a few weeks ago, after sitting at 66% it was ready last nite-darker wrapper than the 1875, good construction, maybe a tad underfilled-ash was white but a little flaky-med/full to full in body increasing in body as I smoked it-tastes were predominately wood (oak...

    Pelo De Oro corona by Felipe Gregorio

    my 1st review, bear w/me!-i picked up a few of these after hearing how they used a type of tobacco that hadn't been used since the embargo-maybe it's hype, but they got me-had a tight draw that relaxed after a light massage-lit easily, smooth smoke no harshness-i'm no good at describing flavors...

    cigar & drink pairings

    tonite i went outside to smoke an opus x robusto-since it's not everyday that i can do this, i took a minute to think of a drink to pair it with-being as i don't drink the obvious choices were eliminated, so i ended up going w/a quintuple iced espresso-turned out to be a great pair!-the spice of...

    aging vs. resting

    i guess this is just a pet peeve of mine, but i sorta giggle when i hear someone refer to "aging" their cigar for a couple of weeks-i didn't know any better when i started smoking either, so i thought i'd pass along what i was told aging is a process that cigars can go through, given the...
