Paging CC. Many years ago I bought some pipes off you and completely forgot everything about their make/model. I try to talk pipes with people and don't know what I have.

The longer stemmed one was made by Bjarne, who is dead now sadly.

The shorter one has a treble clef marking but I can't remember for the life of me who made it.

plz respond.

Took up cigars a couple weeks ago. How many of these things do I have to smoke before I detect "subtle notes of cocoa powder and nutmeg underlying leather and the essence of an evergreen forest after a heavy rain" out of what is clearly just black pepper and campfire smoke? Are cigar reviewers full of shit? Enjoying the nicotine high in the meantime.

Jedi Dachshund, did you find out who made it?

Dropped the unfiltered Camels for snus a few years ago, and more recently picked up one of those Blu thingies for use while drinking. Being an unadulterated badass was killing me rather more quickly than would permit me to achieve my objectives.

Nearly all product reviews containing olfactory characterizations are, so far as I can tell, composed entirely of horseshit.

Or is that dogshit...? I can never tell...
>> No. 110721 ID: 13f512
It's a progression - at its most basic it's "I like this" vs "I don't like this", then you start figuring out what it is you like about certain blends and it becomes easier to identify certain aspects you want to seek out. The horseshit is that a lot of those "flavor notes" are completely subjective and can't be quantified in any way except for some of the more obvious ones like "this smells and tastes like cherries".

Honestly though, for choosing tobacco I just sniff it and if I likes what I sniff, I'll smoke it.

No, I did not identify the pipe unfortunately.

I'll reupload a picture of the other Bjarne I bought from Bjarne himself when he was visiting a long-gone shop in Paradise Valley Mall of all random places. Also an Erik Nording if I can find it.

It's been such a long time so I can't exactly recall either. If you say it's got a treble clef marking my first guess is a Don Carlos by Bruto Sordini.


I vaguely recall it looked something like one of the Three-Notes.

These are awesome. Like a good, smoky campfire in the best possible way. Drawback is you will smell like this thing for awhile. While it was pleasant enough paired with the aged rum I have on hand, it made me wish for a bourbon old fashioned.

My only experience with the smokes are some Captain Blacks, I have quite enjoyed them.

I wouldn't mind some actual cigars that are similar to it, any suggestions?
>> No. 111002 ID: 85023b

Ah, for how much I smoke I think I'll just stick with the 1 to 2 packs per year of Captain Blacks I tend to go through. I was just wondering if there was a common alternative or something.

Thanks anyway.

I smoke Macanudo Crystal Café's a few times a year. Tried a few others here and there but always come back to the Macanudos. My birthday, NYE sometimes, or in a rare friday at the end of a particularly stressful week at work.

Pretty much the only time I ever drink red wine, and even then I prefer cognac...also only ever consumed while smoking.

I used to smoke cigars, back in 1986, with Macanudo and a Honduran brand beginning with B mentioned above (it apparently is a blacklisted thing on this site and posting a picture of these cigars here got me an auto-ban) being my main brands, but I gave them up after only 9 months after my first coughing fit. Plus, smoking makes your clothes stink. Along with the problems of heart disease, cancer and emphysema.
Looking at the prices of these cigars now, they can cost more than $125 a box (with some unremarkable brands costing hundreds of dollars per box) or $5+ a piece.

I have seen cigars that cost $50+ each (my brother knew a member of the College Republicans who bought Cuban cigars from Canadian tourists and smuggled them back into the USA and sold them for $100 a piece to total scumbags), but there are stogies that are insanely expensive, such as...
Gurkha Black Dragon – $23,000/box
These cigars are rarely available and a box will cost you $23,000, being a very limited edition that comes in a hand carved camel bone chest. The cigars are made of Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper with Cameroon binder and Dominican filler that were aged for five years.
They are individually packaged in frosted tubes and placed in leather boxes with layers of orange velvet. The ring size measures 52 inch and they have a length of 8.5 inches with a very complex flavor that ranges from sour to sweet throughout the length. https://luxatic.com/top-ten-most-expensive-cigars-in-the-world/

  Gurkha His Majestys Reserve $750 Churchill HMR Cigar Review [Worlds Most Expensive Cigar] - https://youtu.be/FlOg9a9Gbmw
This $750 7.5x52 stick features a dark tan wrapper with slight stretch marks, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, large double cap soft even pack and rich sweet cocoa aroma much like Patron XO. First light reveals a great draw with plentiful mild-medium artificially sweet cocoa notes and a short smooth creamy finish. The first third shows much the same profile just turning down the sweetness. The smoke is definitely soft, mild and creamy on the draw while the finish gets longer. The 2nd third transitions slowly keeping the same core but adding a mild salty roasted nut to the draw although it was fleeting for just 15 minutes. The finish stays very smooth with an additional oily spice lingering on the lips. Burn is perfect and it hits the band point around the hour mark. Ending at 1:05 the last bit turned very warm, dropping all the infused flavors just leaving the zingy nuttiness through the draw and finish.

Gurkha is a perfect example of Satan's marketing experts filling the world with lies and garbage. Excellent marketing for an average cigar amounting to a complete waste of money. Bill Hicks had some reasonable views on advertisers and marketers. https://youtu.be/tHEOGrkhDp0

Had an impromptu interview with the manager of a cigar lounge. I should start working Tuesday nights soon. Dude kept me there chatting an hour longer than I'd intended to stay. That can only be good, right? It'll be very part time to start, but come January, I might have an opportunity for 40+ hours.

Death of a Legend – Jose Orlando Padron Passes Away At 91

The cigar industry has lost a true legend today with the passing of Jose Orlando Padron at the age of 91.

Born in 1926 near the Pinar de Rio region of Cuba, his family had been working in the tobacco industry since the 1850s. Under Fidel Castro the family farm was nationalized and like many Cubans, Jose Orlando Padron moved to escape communism. His first spot was Spain, followed by New York and eventually he landed in Miami where an empire would be born.

Like many Cuban Refugees Jose earned $60 every month from government aid offered to Cuban refugees. His first job was as a carpenter after a friend gave him a small hammer that allowed him to raise $600 to start a cigar brand and business in 1964. In the beginning, he sold his cigars for 25 cents, and he focused on the cafeterias in Little Havana producing 200 cigars a day. Once “Old Man Padron” as he was affectionately called in his later years came up with the idea for a Fuma made from Connecticut Broadleaf, complete with a curly head cap that resembled Cuban cigars, it took his company to a new plateau.

Feeling limited due to the long curing process of Connecticut tobacco he would begin using Nicaragua tobacco in 1967 for the very first time after a businessman introduced him to the tobacco and fields of the Jalapa valley. Shortly after the switch to this tobacco he was unable to meet the demand of his customers and moved the company to Esteli, Nicaragua where he would once again run into a country in turmoil.

During the time of the Sandinista rebellion, the first Padron factory was burned to the ground which forced him to find another location in Esteli. At the same time, he opened a factory in Honduras with the uncertainty in Nicaragua. After speaking to a Sandinista official, Padron would return to Nicaragua with a promise of no more problems with his factory.

It wasn’t the end of adversity for him however as the United States put forth an embargo against Nicaragua under President Reagan in 1985. In the 5 days leading up to the enforcement of the embargo, Padron moved as much tobacco and cigars he could to Tampa before he was granted a 6 month extension to move more product into the USA. Once the blockade was lifted in 1990 the company returned to its Nicaraguan operation.

The Padron name will continue to live on as his son Jorge “George” Padron has been overseeing the business in recent years side by side with his father.

One thing is for certain though, the cigar industry in Nicaragua owes a lot of gratitude to Jose Orlando Padron, and cigar smokers will forever speak his name as one of the greatest.

Yep. Business will stay in good hands, same with the Fuentes.

We carry a lot of Padrons. A couple nights ago, my boss told me he actually met the old man. He apparently asked Don Padron why he so greatly preferred box pressed cigars, expecting some insight about cigar construction or how it affected burn and flavor. Without a word, Padron took my boss's round cigar out of his hand, set it on the table, and watched it roll away.
