  1. a swing and a miss on those petit edmundos... beautiful cigars, congrats to those who got them... smoking a serie e #2 right now and it is wonderful with this tin cup bourbon...
  2. requested another box of those lovely petit edmundos... can't believe the cohibas are still there! Oh how I want them... but too pricey!!!
  3. I finally fired up a VR Unico last night and it was spectacular... how does the Dip 2 compare?
  4. You Sir, nailed it!!
  5. Makes sense Stogie... I've had them cracked for a day or so now, without any boveda or other added sources. I am a bit surprised at the level of moisture all of these boxes have retained... I shall exercise patience... thanks for taking the time to share thoughts all...
  6. LOL... my latest purchase... over the last 6 weeks... love me some 24:24!
  7. hmmm, interesting response. I have no clue, most of them very recently completed the long journey from down under, so I wouldn't expect the moisture level to be high, rather, I would expect to be needing to increase the moisture...
  8. Looking for some advice on my struggle with high RH levels. I have 4 humidors and a tupperware style container. Humidor #1, the wineador converted is filled with all CC's save for a couple dozen Padron in the drawer. All of the boxes of CC's shown in the pic were purchased over the last 2 months (thanks Rob!). Before my shopping spree this humidor was about 40% filled, with NC and kept the rh level around 70% using boveda packs. Room temperature is typically high 60's f around 20 c. I also have a temp storage solution while waiting for a foot locker, the pic of the storage bag. The other pics are the NC in 2 humis and the plastic container. All 3 of the NC storage are steady in the 68% RH range so no problems there. My problem is that in #1, the wineador, and the storage bag are staying in the low to mid 70's % RH. I fear this is too high and could make for some soggy smokes... I removed all the boveda packs and left them sealed without any source for humidity for several days and to my surprise, the RH is still over 70%, between 72-75%. The room itself is registering less than 60% usually mid 50'S RH and 20 c temp. Is it his normal? I have calibrated the hygrometers to be sure readings are accurate... Thoughts anyone? I'm going to smoke up one of those fake Behike's and ponder some more while watching the ball game, Sox playing in Detroit... IMG_1055.MOV
  9. I have made purchases in the store, but not sure I understand the connection to your suggestion of not "allowing" me or other newcomers to purchase as others can, just so someone who's been here however much longer than I can be able to stockpile and in some cases flip for profit. It's been mentioned several times, hard to find, limited availability product should be limited to a box or two. Even costco has a 1 per household limit on some items...
  10. One thing is clear here... Barry hates newbies... this newbie says, no soup for you!
  11. Barry, your first two sentences are spot on, I couldn't agree with you more! But I just spent well over $4k in the 24 24 sale over the last few weeks, all for my own stock to age and enjoy. That's over $4k worth of business to a new comer and not to someone flipping them for profits. What is the benefit of keeping me from making those purchases for 6 months? Just curious!
  12. I found FOH accidentally while trying to figure out if the $200 box of Behike 56 I bought was fakes... LOL what an idiot! I had no idea how rare they were and the true value, just knew it was a smoke I wanted to try. What I found here was a tremendous education in CC's. Watched many of Robs hilarious reviews on youtube, scoured through many of these discussions in the forums and started watching the 24 24 and building a wonderful inventory of CC's that I am anxious to start smoking. I have to say, each and every interaction with Diana and the logistics team has been nothing short of spectacularly friendly and efficient customer service, making me feel like I am dealing with friends. The format of 24 24 seems to me to be pretty fair. Mostly I have been successful but have also missed a few that I hoped to have and don't see any reason to suspect any unfair play. I've enjoyed this experience, except that it's cost me over $4k over the last 3 weeks!! And I so wanted a box of the BBF and Punch Punch yesterday... but at some point must exercise discipline!!! I'm going to hold off for some aged boxes so I can experience a variety between new and aged. Up till now I have been unto Drew estate Ligas, assorted Padron, PDR AFR 75 as my regular smokes... totally new to CC's and very glad to have happened upon this site. Rob, however you decide to format the sale in the future, I trust you will do it in a way that works well for all. For what it's worth coming from an extreme newbie, I kind of like the idea about limiting number of boxes of highly sought after product, at least in the first hour or two, as someone else mentioned. Thanks to all who take the time to share their experiences and humour!
  13. Ray, Thanks for your kind words, and do appreciate the gesture, which I will reciprocate with a couple of nice sticks for you in return.. Do you fancy Padron? I have many nice ones. Also PDR AFR75, which is my favorite smoke thus far. I assume you are referring to Rob with the CUNTINT site here? I did order some Partagas Serie E from them. Anxously awaiting their arrival. I will shoot your an email. P.S. All thoughts and appreciation should go out to all military folks who have served during the last 15 years in those unfriendly locales... I had a charmed 29 years in between Vietnam and all the recent stuff. Been retired 12 years. Best to all! Dennis
  14. Good thoughts... thanks for the reminder on freezing them, I did burn one, not bad for what they are...
  15. Yes, you may be right...
