Re: Forced to Retire Early

Well, changing careers is inherently stressful. You can’t really change that but you can try and take good care of yourself. Mark’s suggestion to check your financial plans with an advisor is...

Re: Remembering 9/11 - 20 years later - your story

I was in a hotel, taking a class about a scientific instrument at the exact time of the attack. Ended up watching the scene on a TV in the lobby bar.

The most graphic thing I remember was a couple...

Re: Xikar lighters

Basically, the more you spend on a lighter, the more disappointed you will end up. I'd buy a nice punch and stick with cheap lighters that you understand won't last long.

PS: The cheap "5 for"...

Re: Cold Brew

I’ve got the sorta typical 1 liter Bodum French press. I use 8 scoops (unground) of beans, coarsely ground in a cheap Cuisinart grinder. Fill with filtered water and steep in the fridge for a day or...

Re: Jfr lunatic loco el Gran loco

I'm a big fan of the Aganorsa Leaf cigars but never got much from their JFR line. Try the Miami Reserva. Or, on the Cbid cheap side, try the Nica Libre by Aganorsa.

Re: Cleveland Guardians

Well, if the Indians were named after a heroic chief and used a handsome portrait as their logo, they might be OK. Look at it this way. If a team was called the Coons and had a caricature of a Black...

Re: Cigar Federation

I have no reason to believe that they sell marketing info. But, your email does expand with additional ads for their other products (whiskey, coffee...).

Re: LONSDALE love!

I had some of these when they were $5 or $6 each and thought I’d rather spend my money another way. At the $3 sale price, they’re a great deal.

Re: Ybor City Recommendations?

I hope you’re having fun wandering around Ybor. One small warning : The only time I ever got got tobacco beetles was in some singles I bought there. Freeze ‘em before they get near your stash.

Re: Help with cracking

I’ve been known to hold my finger over a crack to seal it. But, in your case, you’re gonna look like a rookie clarinet student. Try Mark’s pectin suggestion.

Re: LONSDALE love!

I like the SR lonsdale, too!

I’ve got a long relationship with the Oliva Connecticut Reserve lonsdale. It’s sorta a Sunday afternoon tradition with me. A little mellower than the O, which is...

Re: I have a Macanudo question

I think it’s unfair to treat a newcomer so shabbily. Trying to con him into thinking his cigars aren’t worth much is just rotten. You should all be ashamed!

I tell you what, Brian. As a gesture of...

Re: Crazy advice needed :P

Coolers are the best path, long term. Shorter term, you can use an airtight food container such as Rubbermaid.

A wood humidor is this traditional thing that often don’t work well. You can search...

Re: TSA confiscates humidor

I used to work with a guy who brought in 1 big machine made Churchill every day. He’d step outside, take a few puffs and put it back in its tube. Lasted all day and the smell made me want to retch!

Re: Prestige Import Group "The Milano" Humidor

I miss the humidors that go whoosh when you close them. I know it was just Lew’s sales BS, but it made them better!

Re: Having an Issue Don't know how to resolve it

Your cigars survived a trip in a shipping container on a boat in the Caribbean. Nothing you do in your house can top that.
