    "The Fridgedor" more than a year in service.

    Just thought I would post an update on the 'fridgedor' and my reflections after a little more than a year of service. It has done a wonderful job of keeping my stogies in top shape. Here's what I learned. I had to abandon the refrigeration aspect for temperature control as the fluctuation was...

    Cuban cigar help....

    My sister-in-law is on a tourist cruise to Cuba. I would like to have her pick up a box of stogies for me. What's the safest way for her to go. Can she buy them on the ship, is there a particular place she should go. I don't want her to get ripped off as she knows nothing about cigars. What...

    Razorock 400 knock offs.

    Being a big fan of the original Rubberset 400 Aluminum handled brushes, I had to see the the Razorock 400. I bought 2 of them from Itailian Barber and they arrived yesterday. I must say the handles are quite impressive. Heavier in the hand than the original Ribberset. Not sure what to think...

    What is it with these tobacco sellers?

Thompson Cigars had a sweet deal. Buy a full box of Atruro Fuente premium cigars and they throw in an Opus X. So I buy a box of...

    Your favorite affordable (Cheap) cigar?

    I love a good premium cigar and I have some pretty awesome, and expensive sticks in the "fridgedor". I have, however discovered a couple of very inexpensive stogies that I think are pretty awesome in their own rite. Post up your favorite smokes that you didn't have to pawn anything to buy...
