Good morning everyone!

About a year ago is when my interest in cigars began and at that time, being a complete newb, i had no idea which cigars were good, how to smoke them, store them etc. I therefore turned to the Internet for help.

During my search i found a couple of interesting sites which really helped me and I still follow them now - I use an RSS feed on my iPhone to collate new articles as and when they are released.

These sites may well be known to most of you but i thought perhaps me posting them may somehow be of use.

www.stogiereview.com - These guys (Walt, Jerry, and Brian) provide informative and highly entertaining weekly video and written reviews, articles, how-to's etc. I would highly recommend anyone checking out the site.

www.cigarinspector.com - This site has a mixture of Cuban and non-Cuban cigar reviews (all written no video) which i find useful when i'm not sure what to try next. Excellent site so def worth a look.

www.stogiefresh.com and www.youtube.com/user/docstogiefresh - The 'Doc' has lots of reviews, podcasts, and check out the youtube link for his humidor tours and videos on cigar production.

Hope this is useful...

For written reviews there's always the old favourite cigars-review (http://www.cigars-review.org/) which deals only with Cuban cigars, and there's also a whole bunch at Puff (http://www.puff.com/Cigar-Reviews/).

And for a down to earth, "feels like it was written by a mate" section of cigar reviews (both NC and CC), you could do worse than checking this (http://www.ukcigarforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=19) out folks:41::smile:

I sort of feel the opposite. I liked the first videos, and some of them are really informative as well, but after watching a few I feel they are all pretty much the same. Funny boozed up but a bit repetitive.

Hi friends, etc

My friend, I think you are on the wrong forum.
This is a place where consenting adults discuss cigars. The last thing we need is someone like you trying to sell us your e.cigarettes.

If you are interested in cigars you are welcome and you should be polite and introduce yourself (see the sticky at the top of the newbie thread)

If you continue to promote your product I will block you.

If I may add here...

A major portion of Puff's older reviews came from Club Stogie and CigarLive.
Club Stogie and CigarLive were purchased by Puff(Jon Caputo).

The Moderators of CS(myself included) started CigarAsylum in an attempt to keep our tight knit community together.It worked quite well and with 3000 plus members,a great number of reviews can be found there as well.
