		 Pipes Digest #84 - November 7, 1992

For once, we don't have any new members between postings! But we're up
to 59 members now - not an all-time high, but pretty darn good, IMHO!
Which brings me to the following (fanfare please)...

ADMINISTRATIVE NOTE:	(don't that look official? Even officious? :-) 

IF your email address changes, and you'd like to keep on receiving the
Digest, please let me know your new address! I've been able to track
down a few members who've moved, but this has been the exception
rather than the rule. If someone's mail starts bouncing, I have no
choice but to drop them from the mailgroup.

And now, after that heavy Latakia-like note, let's lighten up (and
light up) with Martin and Douglas!

					Smoke in peace,

Fellow Fumeurs,

In recent months I find my interests turning more in the direction
of fine cigars, but I've been sadly unmethodical in exploring the
field.  I've discovered that my tastes do appear to have a
definition:  relatively short (6.5" or less), fat (48 ring or
greater), mild but aromatic (usually Dominican), hand-rolled, with a
preference for a Maduro wrapper.  The stinging intensity of a
smuggled Cuban "Cohiba" I smoked a couple of months ago did not
please me.  Can anyone suggest a cigar that I might like, within
that range?  How about one outside of that range, and what are its
characteristics?  Further, in one of the mail order catalogs I saw a
reference to a "bullseye cutter".  I normally use a guillotine, and
have seen piercers and vee-cutters, but this is apparently something
different from any of those.  How does it work?  Thanks ...

	- Martin

I was wondering if it would be possible for Steve Houser to
give the Digest Readers a comparison of the various English
Blends. I would like to know the name of some of the
stronger blends. By stronger I mean blends which contain the
most Latakia.
