I spit when I smoke cigars too, one of the old tinderbox forum threads said it had to do with an allergen within the tobacco.

I normally smoke outside only.

Speaking of Arturo Fuente, what are some similar smoking cigars from other brands similar to say Cuban Corona's; both in flavor profiles and creaminess of the smoke?

I primarily smoke pipes and aromatics from the fall through the spring, and occassionally dip into cigars in the summer.

Right now I'm still trying to figure out cigarwise what I like.

(Drugstore Dutch Masters ruined cigars for me for a good thirty plus years)

Smoked my second Man o' War Ruination 10th Anniversary box press perfecto yesterday. Opened up like a rich dark chocolate, like a bar of 88 percent cocoa, and then after a while mellowed out into chocolate-covered biscuit territory. A bit of pepper on the spark up, but then it trended sweet, although it's quite a full-bodied cigar. Followed it up a bit later with a Nub Cain 460. It's a good smoke, very meaty and chewy. Also, I'm pretty pleased with the ash I ended up with on this one. I ended up calling it shortly after this photo cause it was late and I suspected it would get hot and a bit less delicious once I finally lost the ash.




Please, post about pipe stuff here! Plus, if you share the type of pipe tobacco you smoke/the flavors etc. we might be able to make some cigar suggestions.


I follow the advice from somewhere deep in the last thread that the easiest way to age your cigars is to buy enough of them that a few just get lost in your humidor and you accidentally age them that way. In part I follow this advice because it's funny, and in part because I live in quite a small apartment and my girlfriend (who is quite accommodating about cigars in general!) has made it clear that it is a 1 humidor apartment.

As for the shelves, I didn't bother seasoning mine because the fact that they dropped the humidity in my humidor for a week or two was pretty desirable, although my buddies just did the wipe with distilled water and let it soak in thing which seemed to work fine.

Sorry, works been nuts as of late.

Pipe smoking in the fall when its crisp out is just so relaxing.

I've picked pipe smoking back up after a few years and I found an old baggie of one of my favorite blends that's in surprisingly good shape. Used to be the only place you could get pipe tobacco around here was a porn/cigar/sports merch store and nothing they had was really well labeled.

They had a lot of stokkebye stuff but I think this one might be sutliff, it's only ever just been labeled "Balkan no. 2." It's real heavy on Latakia compared to everything else I've smoked. The good news is that I'm in the 21st century and can buy tins of actual pipe tobacco online, what's a good blend that's heavy on Latakia?

Also do you guys have any recos on pipes? I've got a couple of mid range estates, but I finally make enough that I can entertain the thought of treating myself to something nice that wasn't smoked by a dead guy

I use pipesandcigars.com they do mass spam emails on a twice a day basis, plus a old school catalog once a month.

Do they have any good blends that are heavy on Latakia? And do you know if any good pipes that might not have the name recognition of a Peterson but still deliver worthwhile craftsmanship in the sub ~$150 range?

A quick search shows 260 options regarding Latakia blends.

Peterson and Stanwell are in there between 100-125.

Smoking pipes is a good site too
