Re: Lancero love

Muestra de Saka #NLMTHA lancero (7 x 38)

Got this one in a lancero/lonsdale trade on C-Bid.

Illusione Holy Lance Candela (7.5 X 40)

It's been...I'd say close to 10 years since I smoked a candela wrap cigar. Got this one in a lancero trade I did on C-Bid.

PE "Farm Rolled" lancero (7.5" x 38)

Leaf by Oscar maduro lancero (7 x 38).

Re: Chinese Made Humidor Or Not

Most of the humidors sold by the bigger retailers are made in China. It's hit or miss, honestly. I recently got a 100-count that I had to silicone in order to get the Rh to stay above 55%. The glass...

Re: The Cigar That Changed It All

Re: Headley Grange Estupendos

Re: Aristocrat Humidors - still in business?

I checked out Bob's website, and he still sells climate control installation kits. So I guess my plan as of now will be to buy a regular cabinet humidor and install the climate control stuff.

Aristocrat Humidors - still in business?

Oliva Serie V lancero (7" x 38)

Re: Lancero love

Just finished another CBOM (Cigar Bundles of Miami) Tampa Blend. Excellent smoke! Slow, even burn, medium-full "strength", nice flavor, nice aroma coming from the foot.
