I have so much to update here. New pipes, new pipe tobacco. New cigars. Sigh. So much and so little time. That said, I will be hitting the following cities in the next few weeks: Sydney (Australia, not Canada); Singapore and Beijing. If you have suggestions of places to go, let me know..

Light my fire!
Ah, a good lighter. It can make the difference between enjoying a cigar and not enjoying it. I’ve always been partial to Blazer’s Torch lighter because of it’s durability and consistency. And when traveling I get long cigar matches to enjoy and share. I also bring little wooden matches for those touch-ups I might need. […]
Cigar Store Review: Ropewalk Tavern & revisiting Baltimore’s Cross Street Tobacco
A year ago, I visited one of my first cigar stores ever: Baltimore’s Cross Street Tobacco. A very laid back place, it was quiet and friendly. This past week I ended up back in Baltimore and decided to visit it again. I went to Ropewalk Tavern, one of only two restaurants in Maryland where you […]
Sorry for no posts. I’m hoping to continue my review of CAO America’s 4 for Fourth of July box set. It was a busy work week. I did get the special CRA sampler set this week. I had it shipped to Cigar Inn in Manhattan. I didn’t spend nearly enough time there but one thing […]
Cigar Rights: What doesn’t belong with the others?

Mini-Interview with Rod from CigarPass.com
When I first started smoking cigars I went online and searched for forums and other resources to find out more info about them. The first place I ever landed was CigarPass. I was impressed as to how long it had been around and liked the simple look as well as the community attitude. Rod is […]
San Francisco: The city of hills..
As I mentioned, a couple of weeks ago I was in San Francisco. I was there to do a training course before my company’s big conference. Along with me were about 4 other colleagues. One in particular, D, is a cigar aficionado. He tends to travel internationally more than me (him being a bachelor and […]
And teh weiner is..
The variety of stories I got were great. I even got one from Peter (Canada) from Facebook. But it’s hard to compete against DJ’s paperclip story. I gotta say that’s a long route to get to one’s favs. So he’ll get a Fiver including a WOAN and one of the 2005 Opus X, along with […]
Quick Post/Contest: What would you do for Favs?
I’m very excited. I should be getting some Work of Art Naturals and an Opus X sampler later today. I’ve been wanting both for a while now. It did make me wonder what some do to get their favourite cigars or the one cigars they haven’t tried but want to. So what would do you […]
