Re: AJ Fernandez Bellas Artes - short Churchhill

Are you asking me? I prefer the habana Enclave. I’ve only had the Upmann torpedo and it makes me happy.

Re: AJ Fernandez Bellas Artes - short Churchhill

He makes a lot of catalog cigars and maybe a few of those are stumbles. That said, the Man O War, sold by the Cigars Intl / Cbid is a solid and inexpensive choice.

Re: Padron 1964 - Principe Maduro

Thanks for the review! I like reading Heisenberg’s blog, but I’m often stymied by the lingo. Maybe you need to smoke a cigar while you read it? ��

Re: Oliva Series G

Oliva is hard to beat for quality / price. My personal favorites are the O and V Melanio. I prefer Olivia’s natural wrappers to their maduros, but to each their own.

Cbid sometimes sells their...

Re: AJ Fernandez Bellas Artes - short Churchhill

Since you’re in AJ mode, I’d recommend the Enclave, which is a classic in-your-face AJ cigar and the H Upmann that he blended (more refined).

Thanks for the reviews!

It’s definitely time to smoke a good stogie.

Re: Need an alternative....Habana Leon

When I see corojo wrapper and Nicaraguan filler, I think of Aganorsa Leaf, which used to be called Casa Fernandez. They make some cigars in Miami still, like Miami Reserva.

Re: Remembering 9/11 - 20 years later - your story

I was in a hotel, taking a class about a scientific instrument at the exact time of the attack. Ended up watching the scene on a TV in the lobby bar.

The most graphic thing I remember was a couple...

Re: Xikar lighters

Basically, the more you spend on a lighter, the more disappointed you will end up. I'd buy a nice punch and stick with cheap lighters that you understand won't last long.

PS: The cheap "5 for"...

Re: Jfr lunatic loco el Gran loco

I'm a big fan of the Aganorsa Leaf cigars but never got much from their JFR line. Try the Miami Reserva. Or, on the Cbid cheap side, try the Nica Libre by Aganorsa.

Re: Cleveland Guardians

Well, if the Indians were named after a heroic chief and used a handsome portrait as their logo, they might be OK. Look at it this way. If a team was called the Coons and had a caricature of a Black...

Re: Cigar Federation

I have no reason to believe that they sell marketing info. But, your email does expand with additional ads for their other products (whiskey, coffee...).

Re: LONSDALE love!

I had some of these when they were $5 or $6 each and thought I’d rather spend my money another way. At the $3 sale price, they’re a great deal.

Re: Ybor City Recommendations?

I hope you’re having fun wandering around Ybor. One small warning : The only time I ever got got tobacco beetles was in some singles I bought there. Freeze ‘em before they get near your stash.

Re: Help with cracking

I’ve been known to hold my finger over a crack to seal it. But, in your case, you’re gonna look like a rookie clarinet student. Try Mark’s pectin suggestion.

I think it’s unfair to treat a newcomer so shabbily. Trying to con him into thinking his cigars aren’t worth much is just rotten. You should all be ashamed!
