    First try on these.Pretty damn nice cigar-just starting to get into it. Too rude not to smoke tonight-temperature is great even with a little wind Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Usually I only have time for 1 per night on weekend nights (possibly 2 in the summer) Last weekend I was herfin with big IG smokers and I smoked 3 on Saturday evening - I was smoked out and couldn't really say I appreciated the last or even second cigar. Alex custom lancero, followed by Bolivar RE Belux (huge Rodolfo) then an Epi 2. My friend was getting through 6 a day whilst he was here! For me I struggle to do that many even when in Cuba! So to answer the initial question - 2 is my limit in an evening, if spread out during the day prob 5 max with breaks and palate cleansing.

  6. When I smoke a cigar my primary concern will always be taste. Anything else is secondary. Leaving this one here but debate is always great
  7. Thanks for your input even though it was off topic and that you could find something to contribute about my comment. Glad that everyone's palate is different, you may even be the guy that would of liked these. In the world of cigars we keep tasting, it's up to you what you do with your cigars if you don't like them as is mine.

    Like I've said on many of these threads-freeze everything.My boxes with outbreaks came from here-yes temperature in my apartment gets high however this highlights it can happen whomever source is.
  9. Sorry to hear this - I've been through the same horror but mine was slightly more severe. To this day I freeze everything, I don't care where it's from, it gets frozen. I follow this kind of regime: fridge for 24 hours, freezer for 3-5 days (or when I remember to take out), back in the fridge for another 24 hours or so. Some others will have a variation on this, it is just personal preference.
  10. Yep the good old fireproof wrappers - had it on my first box of Mag 46 which put me off the sticks and fireproof was the only consistent thing I had with that box. I had a couple of really good examples from @garbandz when I was getting my palate into things but I am afraid I've turned my back on the Mag 46 for now (I probably should give them a chance again as I love Upmann!) Nope dry boxing didn't help the sticks I had, can't remember enjoy a single one from the box and sold most.

  13. Usually just acclimatization time, at least 30 days, more like 90 before I actually tuck in. I now have amassed more than I can smoke so my earlier boxes from 2014 have some age now, wasn't really that intentional but arriving here and figuring out 24:24 helped purchases I smoke out of young and older boxes just the same and sleep easier knowing if I don't make it to the next day then I actually managed to sample some of those unicorns.

    Fantastic weather today in NYC. Turned cold again tonight! Always have issues trying to pick what to smoke. Been a while since I tucked into my HdM Des Dieux cab from 09. Such a great smoke-still legs for more ageing. Perfect vitola size Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
