Re: Cigars you enjoyed once upon a time

Maybe thatís what created mountains in the first place? :)

Hmmm... I might be better off using my energy buying some Consuegras

Re: Cigars you enjoyed once upon a time

Consuegras... so many Consuegras. I don’t know if I’d go back to them. But, maybe I should try an El Rey Del Mundo. I think one of my first good cigar box purchases was some Flor de la Vonda

Re: Thermoelectric Coolers

Manny, you’re talking about spending more on environmental control than on the box. If you did a poll of the members here, very few worry about temperature control. We do worry about relative...

Re: Thermoelectric Coolers

Thermoelectric systems (or any other heating / cooling system) in a humidor give you precise temperature control. But, they make it much harder to maintain the desired relative humidity. So, you’d...

Re: Cigar Federation

I agree that the schtick is reminiscent of Lew’s old line of BS. I used to enjoy reading his catalogs! But, if you read Lew’s copy for a while, you could tell what he thought was really good and what...

Re: If you where me....

Can't say I think much of the Infernos. There are lots of Oliva 5 packs in your price range on Cigarauctioneer with no bids on them.

Weelok's suggestion is also excellent!

Re: Cigar Federation

I order occasionally from Cigar Federation or the related Ezra Zion. I’ve never gotten a bad cigar from them. But, I also have never gotten a cigar that truly lived up to the hype and price. I guess...

Re: Famous Nic selection

I smoke the Nic 3000 sometimes. It used to be sorta a cult cigar, made by Oliva. Not sure if it still is. But, it’s a reasonable cheap cigar. It doesn’t”t have the enormous strength that is now sorta...

Re: Dry aging beef?

I received an ad today for a crowd funded dry ager on Kickstarter. Sorta a stainless humidor meant for meat. Actually, itís only a matter of time before someone starts a thread on how they are lining...

Re: Boveda

With respect, I recharge them all the time. I put a wet sponge with the green scrubby side up in the bottom of a plastic container . Then I pile packs on top. Takes a while but they will swell up...

Re: Open Box Cellar Storage

The absolute humidity (same as concentration) has a nonlinear relationship with temperature and relative humidity. You can google it. Back during the cigar boom, there were constant flame wars over...

Re: Zippo inserts and alternatives

I’ve used Zplus’s for a long time. They’re fine within the limitation that their flame is smaller than many torches. This probably helps conserve the fuel in the smaller tank. You can only stuff so...

Re: Isabela Firecracker

Thanks for a great review! I can’t decide about Isabela. There’re very well constructed but the flavor is unique. I can’t decide if I like it or not.

BTW, you forgot to mention if you reamed it...

Re: Cigars in Cinema

Does TV count?

Doctor Who, “The Ghost Monument” includes a cigar that lights itself with the snap of a finger. Jodie Whittaker is The Doctor.

Re: A Christmas humidity question...

I think you’re worrying about short term changes more than it’s worth. Those cigars travelled in a cargo ship on the ocean to get here and didn’t crack.

Tap water has different amounts of...

Re: Cain NUB & NUB

The blend? First, there was Oliva Cigars. Then, they tried coming up with some hip, new (very strong) blends called Cain. Somewhere in there, they started making these short, fat versions of the...

Re: Cigars Fading?

I’m with T.G. There’s no real predicting.

In general, cigars lose their sharper edges over time. So, if you like really smooth tasting cigars, long aging might make you happy. On the other hand,...

Re: Chinese Made Humidor Or Not

When we say coolerdor, weíre referring to insulated chests like you might take on a picnic. You can easily maintain RH in them with a passive system like beads.
