Re: A Cool New Technology

Very neat! I guess, in the short term, the trick is figuring out how to use it in a way that conveys the info you want instead of just mesmerizing the audience with the technology. But, that’s where...

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

T.G. has about covered the humidity issue. I've used both PG and HCM beads over the years. They both work OK, but beads give you the option to store slightly drier.

Re: Beginner Questions (Ask Them Here!)

(Please excuse the broad generalities)

Skipping the forbidden island, there are 3 main countries that produce cigars and they tend to have distinctive tastes. So, you might want to try some cigars...

Re: Buying cigars directly from manufacturers?

I have emailed back and forth with them twice since this post. They went so far as to find this thread. They ask that you contact them with your order #. I’ll put the email address I used on your...

Re: Buying cigars directly from manufacturers?

I’ve had several good experiences with them or I wouldn’t have suggested it. I sent them an email. I will report back their response or the lack of it.

Re: New to the Cigar Scene

Welcome Pat! I’d suggest starting a thread for nominations for which BOTL you should study first. This will help delineate the hierarchy and social structure that has developed since we emerged from...

Re: Favorite Kristoff?

Re: Losing some love for Pepin lately

I used to love the old Vegas Cubanas and Blues. Can’t say I ever got on board with the My Fathers. If I had to buy a newer Pepin cigar, it’d be a Flor de Antillles. Guess I’ll have to try the new VGs...

Re: Seasoning the NewAir CC-100H CC-300 with Boveda

The cooling system will remove humidity a LOT faster than some Boveda packs will replenish it.

Re: Seasoning the NewAir CC-100H CC-300 with Boveda

Just use one or more sponges. How do you figure we got humidors going before Boveda packets?

Re: Vegas de Santiago

I have several times but not recently. The shipments I got were mailed from Costa Rica so took a while.

It was a dog rocket brand that folks passed around as a joke. Although somewhere, there was a newbie who thought they were really good.

Well, perhaps times have changed, but we used to call that mooching. One of the infamous mooches went by the name, “Jim the Newbie.” Whenever someone mentioned a cigar, he’d post, “Gee, I never had...

Re: Air filters & you: The for cleaner air.

Does your B&B stock Oliva products? An Oliva V or V Melanio would be nice.

Re: Looking for a good cutter and lighter

You might want to try a cigar punch also before making a lot of decisions. I use a Xikar punch on most cigars and a xikar cutter on those where it isn't practical.

Re: what cigar should I try next

Welcome! Good advice, above. I like the idea of the JR Ultimates. You can buy the same cigar with different wrappers and start learning about the effect that has.
