  1. There's not a single cigar on that list which would make elicit a "ho hum" response from me.

    Dryboxing Humidity?

    Boveda actually makes 49% packs for guitar storage. I would assume this would remove humidity for you in a controlled manner. Sold on Amazon. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  3. I find this one to be important these days... [emoji6] Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  4. I can only speak for myself, but I signed up for this to have fun and, in the off chance, win a few bucks. I'm 1 for 3 so far. Smoking cigar #4 now. Still havin' fun!

    WiFi hygrometer

    I found it to be really well made and when I tested it, it was very accurate. I have also been using the below system for years and like it as well. They make a whole bunch of different sensors. Chris

    Factory Codes Running List

    Which kinda hints at something I've always wondered. One of the main reasons Habanos started doing this was to prevent code shopping. If I were "them", in addition to changing up factory codes by adding new ones and retiring old ones, I'd also consider rotating the codes through my factories...

    36. His favorite cigar was reputed to be the Saint Luis Rey Regios...or so they say. Just one more reason to keep the marca and vitola around as far as I'm concerned.
  9. Perfectly filled cigar with a significant box press, no draw problems at all. In fact, perfect draw. But alas, some serious burn issues. I have put all 5 of these cigars in a traveldor since getting them with a 65% boveda pack so I'm kinda bummed about the burn problem. I haven't had a cigar tunnel on me in years...until tonight. Having to mess around with lighting it to rescue it probably affected the flavor profile quite a bit and I had to quit on it before I normally stop smoking. Initial notes of wood and leather. Definitely a tea flavor, almost a pu erh-like dankness on retrohale that made me THINK I know what this guy is...but that's when I started having burn issues. I'm really at a loss, but going with my first guess and intuition.

    Aviation Post

    Congrats! By the sound of it, you're well hooked. Quick tip: I learned to fly in Rhode Island. Weather in the summer was pop up thunderstorms and winter was low ceilings with freezing rain and snow. In other words, weather was a constant factor in my flight training. And while it certainly delayed my training, it immensely improved my decision making and personal minimums as a pilot. I would also say that because of the issue of weather delaying your training, you should endeavor to fly as much as you can, whenever you can. I was also a sim pilot and found it helpful to practice maneuvers. Even though I now own an aircraft, I still am a sim pilot and use it for all sorts of real-world aviation applications in my current profession in airport management. I'm currently flying Prepar3D using an HTC Vive VR headset and let me just say that the level of realism has gotten to a point where you can easily lose yourself in the cockpit during a flight...and possibly get motion sickness if you aren't careful or used to it. Quick question: Why a 1st Class Medical? 3rd Class is sufficient for Private Pilot. Keep us posted on your training! With pics and videos. And just to keep you interested in cool things you can do when you get your license, here's a video of me flying to Santa Barbara with my Australian Shepherd, "Havana". Chris

    Best young CC

    I generally don't buy single boxes. Usually two boxes or more at a time so I can I smoke a box at my pleasure and put at least one away. I also smoke almost every order I get, after a period of 30 days of rest, ROTT. I want a baseline. With respect to best young CC, I don't know that there are any regular production that are BAD, but there are certainly some that are "wasted" when smoked young. Are you going to toss a recent production H Upmann Sir Winston or Romeo y Julieta Cazadores away half way through? Nope. But are you jumping the gun? Big time. But that's just one guy's opinion. Oh put me down for the Juan. Lopez Selección No. 2 when young.
