  1. What do you guys recommend for current production Opus X? It seems like there are 100 variations and I've felt compelled recently to put some down for awhile just to see what all the hype is about
  2. Woooooo thanks guys! Thank you @planetary as well for helping us all visualize this data @Ferrero PM sent
  3. Nice! I'll be curing in a kiln as well, Crockpot?
  4. I planted 3 types originally, Habano 2000, CT Shade, and Vuelta Abajo but when it came time to transplant the Vuelta Abajo was doing far better than the rest so I only planted that
  5. You are correct, right next to the tobacco plants I have some mint leaves growing so i've had some great mojitos this summer. I use Bacardi Gran Reserva Maestro de Ron, Polar seltzer water, mint leaves, and squeeze a wedge of lime in, nothing fancy. I've tried with and without a small teaspoon of sugar but prefer them without the added sweetness.
  6. Cohiba Robusto MUO JUL 14 courtesy of @archosaur Start time 1:19PM Espresso bean, Hay/grass, light milk chocolate, tons of smoke and perfect construction. Chocolate dominating the retrohale 2:01 Espresso bean still making up most of the flavor profile 2:20 Flavor switching over to the chocolate that was strong on the retrohale at the beginning of the cigar with some toasted tobacco mixed in 2:36 Calling it here with the cigar getting a little hot/bitter with no added flavors in the retrohale, thank you again @archosaur this was my first CoRo and an awesome smoke! Now time to swish some coconut oil and go for cigar #2
  7. The siesta key rum is good stuff, I've been to the distillery down in Sarasota before. I've had a bottle of papa's pillar for the past 2 years I can't stand though, waaaay too much spice.
  8. A cell phone rings in a locker room and a man answers it on speaker: Man: "Hello!" Woman: "Hi honey, it's me. Are you at the club?" Man: "Yes." Woman: "I'm at the mall and i just saw this beautiful ring and it's only $2,000, can i have it? Man: "Sure!" Woman: "Oh, and i just stopped by at the Mercedes dealership and saw one i really liked, can i have it? Man "How much is it?" Woman: "$90,000." Man: "Well if it's that much i want it with all the features." Woman: "Of course, one more thing. I just finished talking to Sarah, and the house i wanted is back on the market, they're asking $980,000 for it." Man: "Ok, make an offer for $900,000, if they don't take it offer them the extra 80k if that's what you really want." Woman: " Thank you so much honey, love you, bye!" Man: "Love you too, bye." The man hung up, everyone in the locker room was staring at him in astonishment. The man then calmly looked around and asked "Ok, whose phone is this?"
  9. Cazadores
  10. When lining with spanish cedar do you usually just do a friction fit?
  11. Been on a hot streak of trying sticks from new boxes, hoping it continues
  12. Just read through this whole series, awesome! Funny this is the thread that started the whole "humidor tutorial" section of the forum way back. What ever happened to Al? Who bought the humidor?
  13. Another great thread full of info, without lining the interior of the humi with cedar would solid mahogany or mahogany plywood (i'd prefer the later) stand up to the interior humidity on its own? I'm trying to come up with the right building material now
  14. Looks awesome! This is exactly what I plan on building except instead of lining with Spanish cedar I think I'm just going to use a single Spanish cedar shelf
  15. As I continue to dig through this section of the forum I thought this might be a good place to add another question. what would be the best way to seal around glass inserts in the door like in the cabinet below? would regular outdoor or shower silicone be fine? Really my only concern would be outgassing over time And how about where the two doors meet? An "astragal" like piggy mentioned?
