    I’ve now been a member her since October andI feel compelled to share some thoughts. I have been involved in a number of groups that have been shalll we say less than welcoming but the brethren here have been extremely warm and welcoming. At my age I am hardly a babe in the woods and while I have always enjoyed a good cigar only since my retirement have I really gotten serious about them. I have had and continue to have questions. I am so appreciative of the folks here that have patiently answered the many questions I have had and am truly thankful for each of you for your fellowship and camaraderie as well as you advice.

    Well said good sir. Louisville huh? Love that place. I usually come out to fly in the Thunder airshow but I’m skipping it this year. I thoroughly enjoy sitting in Match Cigar Bar while sipping on a Kentucky Breakfast Stout (they have it on tap) and smoking a good stogie.

    Don’t even get me started on the bourbon y’all have out there.....

    Thank you for you kind words Sooner. Next time you do get here let me know. I have quite a few contacts and will get you a REAL behind the scenes tour of some of the better distilleries.

    Thank you for your generous offer. If I make it out next year we should burn one and shoot the breeze. I’m all about meeting a fellow BOTL for a smoke/BS session.

    Well said chef!
    I to have been impressed with folks here,politeness and common decency have been replaced on the web by loud mouth snarky, selfish morons that have to have there say.
    This place is a breath of fresh air. As a mater of fact I haven't posted on other forums in six or seven years.

    Well said. I too just started getting serious about cigars. 1 1/2 years now and this place has been of great help. Very friendly and full of great information.

    This place is truly a brotherhood, first and foremost. I've met several of my dearest friends here, have flown to Buffalo, Las Vegas, and Missouri to meet up with them, and have Vherfs fairly regularly with 8 to 10 or so. Cigars are what brings us together, but found out quickly that it runs way deeper than that. If only the world operated like this place......
