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: 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: Kitchen Remodel

I used to work for Bosch so I’m biased. But, Consumer Reports will tell you their dishwasher cleans very well. If you don’t buy Bosch, buy something that’s very quiet. Having a quiet dishwasher is...

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.

Re: Looking for some help with a humi

Believe it or not, a humidor capacity calculator. In reality, you’ll have different boxes, trays, etc. so, the number of cigars wil be al lot less than here.

Re: Looking for some help with a humi

Any hygrometer is measuring relative humidity so, “in theory” you should be able to use different hygrometers side by side. But, in the real world, all hygrometers have inaccuracies. For example, the...

Re: Indoor Smoking:
