I though we might have a little for fun photo competition. No prizes though.

The longest unbroken Cigar Ash.

Two catergories:

1. Non cubans (NC).

2. Cubans.

My first attempt.

NC Stub. Approx length 3 1/4s inch long. Sitting in Ol Blue Boy!!!

States, I try to avoid buying NC's from the UK as much as possible. I can get a box from the US for the same price I can get about 6 sticks over here :lol:

The Habano is good. The fullest in the range, but still only med-full

When Churchill was going in to a meeting and wanted to unnerve people at it, he used to straighten out a paper clip and insert it the length of his cigar. As the ash got longer and longer, all anybody could do was stare at it and wonder when it was going to fall off :smile:

Would that really hold the ash then, I would of thought the ash would still fall off and just leave the wire..

Can`t enter the competition myself at the moment unfortunately, but i reckon that anyone with a MC Subime will be able to make a good go of beating anything else.

Those cigars have a fanstic construction, and the ash just does not want to break off. :41:

Come on the Sublime!!!

Ha ha
Actually, I have a cunning plan, I am working on it even as we speak.

It's so cunning Mr and Mrs Cunning of Cunning Parva have made it their cunning plan of the year!

In order to win the Birmingham Cigar Club Janet Powell Shield, you have to be able to hold your ash the longest. The first time I won with about 22 minutes worth of ash, the second attempt was over 50 minutes. I am defending my title again in July! All cigars are taken from the same box so there is no pre-competition tampering, and all cigars must make smoke and be held horizontal throughout the competition.
