MY WORLD OF CIGARS -

  Traveling with cigars can be a challenge. How do you keep them humidified? How do you protect them from damage? Common methods used in the past included wrapping the cigars in bubble wrap, newspaper, or even socks. Luckily, cigar smokers now have better options with near indestructible travel cases. The best cigar cases, commonly known as 'travel humidors' are made out of ABS plastic. ABS plastic is an excellent material for protecting cigars due to multiple properties: Heat Resistance: ABS...

The largest cigar club/private lounge in Helsinki, the KirjaClub, was honored to host a cigar tasting presented by Jeremy Casdagli from Bespoke Cigars. During the event, we received a great brief on the history and philosophy behind the brand and the Casdagli family. The cigars sampled at the event were of a great blend of tobacco from various sources blended together by no one else than  Hendrik Kelner Jr of the famous Kelner family of Master blenders at the KBF factory, Santiago, Dominican...

Before lighting  your cigar, before even choosing how to light your cigar, you first make a very important decision; what kind of fuel to use in your cigar lighter. The choice seems simple, but further investigation shows just how much choosing the right fuel can affect your cigar smoking experience. If you light  your cigar with a torch or a soft flame lighter, chances are that you are fueling your lighter with butane. This odorless, pressurized gas is perfect for lighting cigars due to its...

  It is time for my first review of the Toscano cigars - one of many more to come. Previously i released a post on the Toscano cigars and their history. If you missed it, here is a link: http://www.worldofcigarsblog.com/2014/06/toscano-tradition-and-history-since-1818.html Now, to the review: Toscano Classico The Toscano cigars (including Classico) are a tradition by itself. The cigar is a slim, uniquely shaped perfecto (open from both ends). and has a dark, rustic wrapper filled with lumps...

I bought this box last spring from Tallinn. Since I´ve smoked only few cigars from it because I normaly prefer bigger smokes. Today I didn´t have so much time so this was the cigar I chose. Appearance: Maduro (matt). Cold aroma: Strong cedary aroma with a hint of cocoa. Taste: Right from the start there is dark, roasted aroma with some coffee. After smoking some time I get some nutty flavor. At the time I reach the half way the coffee character gets stronger and turns to espresso. Next comes...

This is the day I start my new cigar review blog. My aspiration is to add regulary new reviews to the site. Being a lazy person catching up this routine won´t be very easy. I´ve smoked cigars "more seriously" nearly five years now and this is the first time feeling I´m in a position to give recommendations. You definitely need that certain number of smoked cigars before you can start rating them. Of course you can never be too experienced. Every day is another day to learn new things of the...

Birrificiosta ja Black Doorista ei löytynyt mitään tilattavaa. Seisoin hetken G-Livelabin jonossa Melrosen keikalle. Huomasin sitten loppuunmyyty-lätkän ikkunassa ja peräännyin pienelle kävelylenkille. En ole Melrosea koskaan nähnyt livenä ja änkesin sitten vielä kyselemään, josko sisään pääsisi. Ei onnistunut. Näin kyllä keikan ennakkoilmoituksen aiemmin, mutta ajattelin, että innostusta ei riitä. Loppujen lopuksi olisi sitten kuitenkin kiinnostanut. Tällaisessa...

Again I didn´t have so much time so I picked up this little beauty. Mostly I was curious to know how the chisel head would work. Appearance: Of course the most important detail in this cigar is the shape of the head. Like the name Chiselito tells it looks almost like a small chisel. The wrapper has some veins in it. Somehow Chiselito looks like a very sophisticated smoke. Cold aroma: There is powerful aroma of urea. Taste: At first I taste some pepper and sweetness that turns pretty soon to...

I have been smoking maduros lately so I chose this robusto from my humidor´s single tray. If I remember correct I´ve smoked this once before. No hard feelings from that. Appearance: The cigar has a bit veiny maduro wrapper. Cold aroma: There is sweet aroma of horse stall and cedar. Taste: The cigar starts with peppery and woody flavor following a fruity character. After smoking some time flavor profile gets some high acid coffee in it. When the half way is reached the coffee flavor mixes with...

I have had this cigar in my humidor almost a year now. It´s a regional edition Bolivar made specially for German markets. The cigar cost approximately 14 euros. I accidentally cut the cigar before the picture was taken so it´s a bit shorter than it use to be. Appearance: The wrapper has some veins in it. It has reddish colour and few dark spots. Cold aroma: Cedar and a hint of urea. Taste: The first thought is "this is not a mild cigar". From first puffs I got some stone dust and pepper. This...

CAO Brazilia Gol! is part of my regular rotation. It is a cigar that never lets you down. Maybe not the most complex cigar out there but it definitely has extremely pleasant flavor. And you just have to love the contrast colorful band makes with the maduro wrapper. Appearance: Gol! has dark brown maduro wrapper and hard body. Cold aroma: Very intensive and sweet aroma of manure. Taste: Gol! is usually a slow starter but it gets better and better while smoking. The first puffs offers some...

This time i decided to smoke Partagas Culebra since I haven´t smoke one in months. Also I was interested to see peoples faces in restaurant while smoking this ugly stick. Appearance: Well, what can I say. Just look at the picture. Cold aroma: There´s some horse stall and a hint of pepper. Taste: From the first puffs I get some dry pepper. It is also very easy to notice in this point that the cigar is not mild. After smoking few centimeters the flavor profil seems to turn to earthy direction...

I have been using the Xikar PuroTemp™ wireless hygrometer system in my cabinet humidor for a month now and liked it very much. I currently have only one remote sensor in there, but want to get 2 more to measure on different spots in the cabinet. After getting those, i can monitor the whole cabinet with all three sensors feeding the same base unit on my desk! Base unit The PuroTemp measures the temperature as well as humidity, both with programmable alerts available and come pre-calibrated...

VYS-pikkujoulun jälkeen vielä yksi olut Black Doorissa, jossa oli tarkoitus vierailla jo ennen tapahtumaa. Floridan Cigar Citylla on tunnettu Jai Alai IPA ja nyt panimo on vieraillut Thornbridgellä tekemässä jonkinlaisen verrokkioluen hieman eri nimellä. Toinen Jai ehkä viittaus isäntäpanimon Jaipuriin. Kirkasta kamaa,  6,7%. Hedelmäisyyttä on, mutta ei kovin raikkaasti. Pihkaa ja täyteläisyyttä, liikaa hiilihappoa. Katkeruutta liian vähän. Runsaassa nykytarjonnassa liian vaisu...

Maailman suurinta draamaa? -

Niin no. Hajoan tähän itsekurittomuuteen. Teen kaikkea ilman mitään ajatusta tai harkintaa. Kaipaan elämään kontrollia ja järkevyyttä. Kaikille osa-alueille, niin syömiseen, kuin ihmissuhteisiin, kuin normaalin arkeenkin. Olen vaan liian hukassa sellaseen. Mulla on ikävä jotain. Auttakaa mua, kertokaa vinkkejä. Oon pian taas pelkkinä palasina. Pakko laihtua.

Yay, I finished my thesis! Well, it's written completely now, but now I'm waiting for my instructors to read it. Hopefully they won't ask me to throw the whole thing out of the window and start over. I'm trying hard not to think about scenarios like that. Last couple of weeks I've had insomnia which I have never had before. I hope that it's a result from the thesis and it will go away now. Probably the insomnia also is a result of the fact that I haven't done any exercise at all for... four...

Vanhan sikaritehtaan kolmiossa asuu Rollarifani, ja korkeuttakin piisaa mukavat 3,3 metriä, jossa on mukava soitella satisfaktionia, angieta ja paintitblakkia. Olohuone, ruokatila sekä keittiö ovat avoimessa tilassa tuoden suuremman tilan tuntua. Koti on tyylikäs kokonaisuus vaaleine pintoineen jossa on yhdistelty uutta ja vanhaa sopivassa suhteessa. Lovely three-apartment in an old cigar factory and I am pretty sure that this is a home of Rolling Stone fan. The room height of 3,3 metres...

2014 - A year of mixed feelings revolving around the WorldofCigarsBlog.com. In the beginning of the year all the way up to end of summer I had time and energy to write reviews, do postings and share knowledge about cigars. Visitors to the site kept on coming and I reached the same level of interest I had back in pre-2012. Then came August and i had to focus my energy to other things in life, leaving WoCB.com live on its own. Posting only random informational writings until the end of the year...

Mihinkäs minä viimeksi jäinkään? Ukkeli taisi olla edellisessä postauksessa Boliviassa ja minä Medellínissä, jos oikein muistelen. Sen jälkeen ukkeli kävi Medellínissä mutta lähti uudestaan, tällä kertaa Intiaan (on juuri paraikaa matkalla sinne). Ukkeli tekee matkaa jotain 40 tuntia, jos oikein laskin, ja hänellä on kuusi eri lentoa: Medellín–Bogotá, Bogotá–Frankfurt, Frankfurt–München, München–Dubai, Dubai–Delhi ja Delhi–Hyderabad. Ei käy kateeksi! Dubaista...

What actually happened to each of those advertisements about online video rentals? Did they simply disappear? Has web-based movie rental gone out of outfit? Not necessarily, actually, online video rental is hotter than ever. That's since it's convenient. These companies simply do not spam your email any longer, but they're out there and as prosperous as actually, and that's because folks enjoy renting films online. It's very much simpler. You could be working, hearing music, or perhaps simply...

Keväällä 2010 etsin Spotifysta True Bloodin lopputeksteissä soinutta Walking the Dog -biisiä. Etsimäni Rufus Thomasin biisin jälkeen soittoon lähti vahingossa toinen samanniminen kappale. Tämä toinenkin Walking the dog -biisi kuulosti sen verran mielenkiintoiselta, että oli pakko tarkastaa koneelta, kuka mahtoi olla kappaleen esittäjä. Yhtyeen nimi ei soittanut päässä kelloja, joten oli siis googleteltava selville, mikä yhtye tämä Fun. mahtoi olla. Nykyisin Google antaa...

(Otsikon pun intended.) On aika pikkuhiljaa rauhoittua joulun viettoon. Sanan mukaisesti nimenomaan rauhoittua - lepo ja kiireettömyys tulee hektisen syksyn jälkeen tarpeeseen, ja tänä vuonna jouluhulinaakin on normaalia vähemmän, kun olosuhteiden pakosta teimme viime hetken suunnitelmanmuutoksen ja jäimmekin kahdestaan Ouluun jouluksi. Ensimmäistä kertaa ikinä. Viime hetken hypermarkettipaniikkiruuhkat on suoritettu, kuusikin (kissojen iloksi) hankittu ja lunta on maassa. Ei tosin...

Hello everyone!! It's been such a long while since my last post that I am not sure where to begin. I think I've lost my blogging mojo and hope to find it soon. If you know where it is let me know. On a serious note, as some of you know I have not been feeling well for a while and my absence is related to that. I am home and hope to be able to get back on track in the coming days/week. This last week has been mostly about settling into my daily routines and focusing on my family. Today I woke up...

 Paljon olen koittanut taas saada aikaiseksi, mutta kun on monta työtä yhtäaikaa tekeillä, niin tuntuu ettei mikään valmistu.  Sain kuitenkin jo hetki sitten valmiiksi tuubin, jonka aloitin viimekeväänä. Lankana on tosi ihana Super Soft, jota en enää valitettavasti löytänyt lisää. Tämän tuubin annoin rakkaalle ystävälle.   Ja pyynnöstä syntyi mustasta 7-veljeksestä lapaset, jonka koristelu on Bon Jovin "Have a nice day" -levynkannen innoittama. Lopputulos ei ihan vastaa...
