It's been a busy pipe week for me. 

First I managed to pick up this Chris Morgan pipe.....

Then I managed to snag a tin of what appears to be 40 year old Erinmore pipe tobacco.

I'm surprised to hear that... Gurkha cigars go on deep discount quite often  and usually don't have very good ratings. I've avoided them because a lot of people say nice marketing, poor cigar. Perhaps I will give them a chance.

Yeah,  I was just experimenting with the other Gurkha cigars because I loved the Cellar Reserve so much.  I had the 125th anniversary so far,  and it was good,  but not remarkable. 

If you are skeptical of the Gurkha line,  I'd say start with the Reserve with the white band.  I've had the black banded one and it was a little less that great,  but still a good cigar.

Hello everyone, don't post much on the forums very much but I came across a saddening video while catching up on my YouTube subscriptions. I've only just gotten back into smoking cigars and prefer the infused/flavored stuff as I almost enjoy the smell more than the actual smoke haha. But anyways, for those of you (myself included) who order from the states, I'd suggest stocking up really soon as the fda has decided to start treating cigars as terrible substances and a lot of manufacturers are more than likely going to be going out of business.  I'll try to link the YouTube video but not sure if I can just link it or not. Of it doesn't work basically any Google search will provide information.

Recently bought a Cuban Mixed box (of 25).

Cohiba Siglo II
Montecristo No.4
Hoyo de Monterry Coronation
H. Upmann Corona Major
Romeo y Julietta No.2

I enjoyed them all very much except for the Hoyo de Monterry Coronation.

I also got to try a Romeo y Julietta Cedro Deluxe No.1 and LOVED it.

Ordered some of the following last night in my pursuit of shorter cigars so I have more opportunities to smoke:

- La Aroma De Cuba Edicion Especial Minuto (Don Pepin Garcia)
- Nub Habano 358 (Sam Leccia)
- American Kickass Hybrid Red RPM (Eiroa) -- was a closeout sale... 5 for $15 USD worth a try.
- Cabaiguan Guapos Junior Madura (Pete Johnson)

I've had (and still have) some of the Nub and I love the brand...
Looking forward to trying the Minuto.
The bottom 2 were "good deals".

Not bad, not fantastic.

- Nub Habano 358 (Sam Leccia)

I'm a fan of Nubs and this one was a good one, but definitely not my favorite.

- American Kickass Hybrid Red RPM (Eiroa) -- was a closeout sale... 5 for $15 USD worth a try.

Complete garbage.

- Cabaiguan Guapos Junior Madura (Pete Johnson)

It was OK.


All in all they were all quite mediocre with the exception of the Hybrid which was just complete garbage.
