  1. On our first Valentines Day, I got her a single rose. It was our sophomore year in college and I was broke. To spare embarrassment, I made up a cute excuse that I would give her a rose for each year we celebrated together. Fast forward two years... It was our third Valentine’s Day together, and our senior year in college. We had both been busy with classes and sports, and I completely forgot about the holiday. The day of, one of my roommates asked me what I had planned. That was my “oh sh!t” moment! Her and I made dinner plans, but I completely forgot about the roses! I had practice before our date, so I had no time to get them. I thought I was screwed. My buddy agreed to bail me out and got three roses and a few balloons for me, which he put in her car while I was at practice. We had a great date, and as we pulled up in her driveway, she noticed the balloons in her car. Unfortunately, he put them her drivers seat and they looked like a head from the rear window. She freaked out thinking someone was in her car waiting for her. I came to the rescue and searched her car for danger. Finding only balloons, I called her over to show her what I found. She was completely impressed of my efforts. Needless to say, we had a great rest of the night. Unfortunately, my buddy left his credit card at the florist and had to cancel it. It took a week for him to get the replacement. The poor guy was as broke as me for that week, and I felt terrible. But, that was 14 years ago, and my wife never found out about. His sacrifice was worth it [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. Cooler aging questions

    I think temperature and humidity are the most important factors for aging. I always heard that airflow within the humidor is good in that it prevents stagnation and mold to a certain extent. I wouldn't bag the boxes within the coolerador. Also, I'm not sure why people say NCs don't benefit from aging. I just smoked one that had been put away for 6 years and it was much better than before. It has become very good actually. The thing with cigars is that they are subjective. Some like the same cigar better with age whereas others prefer them young. Some prefer to smoke them right out of the humidor while others insist on dry boxing. IMHO cigars are more about the journey than the destination. Experiment with aging for yourself and figure out how you like them best. As far as I'm concerned there are no rules for cigars as long as you don't let them dry out, get moldy or get beetles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Cubans & Non Cubans

    I smoke mostly NCs at the moment since I live in the US and I didn't have a trustworthy source for CCs. The few CCs I smoke are reserved for special occasions. NCs are so abundant and cheap there isn't much of a choice... that is, until a few weeks ago when I discovered you all. Now I'm excited to try as many CCs as I can get my hands on.
  9. Hello all!

    Hi everyone. I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself. I'm from New Jersey (northeast US). I got into cigars in 2007 and am new to CCs. I'm looking forward to getting to know and learn from you all! I've read the noob links already and I'm really happy to be part of the group.
