  3. Yes, with the black band. How is that depressing? It was a spice bomb. An interesting cigar which was not much like its brother the regular D4. :D
     
  4. Those are really nice little smokes.

    I'm currently away from home (in Kuwait, actually) and will have to hit the cigar shop tomorrow. They have all sorts of products that are "hard to find" in my home neighborhood. ;)

    you would think that the special editions such as black labels would have a better QC especially considering how much the cost

  18. I have been considering a meerschaum for a while now, but have been hesitant, thinking it a bit cumbersome to use and care for. I very much enjoy smoking a pipe, but they are much more work (after all, a pipe gives a wise man time to think and a fool something to stick in his mouth), and I often default to a cigar in many situations because it's simply easier. I'm afraid a meerschaum would only magnify the time consuming, though ritualistic, nature of a pipe. Am I wrong in my assumption?
     
  19. The meerschaum is actually easier to care for than a wooden briar. You just clean it out and go without worries of stuff getting into the grain of the pipe. It is nice and smooth inside.
     
  20. But is it more delicate to handle. Most I've seen come in a special case, and I've heard guys say you shouldn't touch them barehanded. Don't know if that's true or not, but I gather they're rather fragile, no?
