I usually pick up 2 sticks of the same thing when im trying something new from my B&M but lately I have been blindly ordering 5 packs online like a 5er of my father le bijou 1922 toro and a couple tin's of papas fritas.

Things you find you don't like always make great bombs as long as they aren't dog rockets. All the cigars I went crazy buying were mostly given away a few months down the road lol.
I just read a thread a little bit ago about obsidian and quite a few people like them.

The Le Bijou are great they shouldn't disappoint. Same with the Papas Fritas. Great 50 min smokes. It's like a quick fix when you can't sit and enjoy an entire Liga.

I actually don't spend too time over there anymore as it is pretty much the same 5 questions over and over so the real draw is getting on with a group...ie, I'm a Squid, and bombing others. But, that gets expensive for someone who smokes as little as me.

the way I figure it, I can get a feel for if I like the LP#9 or not by only shelling out $5.50 a stick before I shell out the big bucks on the full size. I expect at a smaller ring gauge and a shorter length it should be a little bit harsher and a little hotter but if I like them I will know for sure that I will like the LP#9's. The Le Bijou is just one that I've wanted to try for a while now.

Consider..... if you have multiple humis you can use one for long term aging(and htf cigars if you want), another kept at a lower rh for maduros, and another for every day smokes. This is what I'm in the process of setting up. An actual humidor for long term aging, 2 big tupperdor for everyday smokes(one for maddies and one for everything else), and another for CCs.

yeah, I see the basic questions a lot but I went ahead and started an account over there anyway. It's funny, I spend most of my time here on the Cigar thread and most of my time there on the homebrewing thread.

While the two definitely arent the same even though the Papas Fritas are in part the same tobacco used in the 9... if I had to compare the Papas Fritas to any other Liga it reminds me most the of the 9. If youd like PM me your info and I'll share some goodness with you.

Thats cool your one of the Bomb Squids. What the hell happened over there a couple weeks ago? I see bunch of people, a group of bombers from observation, left. Are you on BOTL or anywhere else thats not as repetitive as Puff?

I want to smoke so bad right now, but it's like 10 out! I'm considering lighting up a cheap one, leaving it outside, then coming in and out of the house.
