  1. Your best memory of those early years? I joined this community in 2012 and now I’m 30ish...some years old which makes me a old man…. LOL the best years were trying various brands of NC & Cuban cigars. Figuring out the flavors of each marca and seeing what I enjoy in terms of “smoke flavor profile” and what I don’t like. Your biggest regret? When you buy a box of cigars that you “Love” or for the “Hype” or lastly that you want to “Age” (Keep for future potential taste or collectability) Try to buy an extra box, but if that is not in your financial wheelhouse buy a 1 sing
  2. Was up North for the weekend in Aurora morning was great +9 but at night throw the wind into it we were getting close to -9 to -10
  3. It’s an unusually warm day today -10C …LOL we are still in a semi lock down in our country and province. We have finally been given the ok to safely go out and mingle again so today decided to hit the indoor golf range and then pick up a cigar. I decided to go buy a cigar instead of digging in my humidor because our local tobacconist are getting crushed and not to mention the @#@#! A$$ new laws that strips all logos and cigar bands…but do not want to go down that route…happy thoughts. Its cold and I need something that’s manageable. Por Larrañaga always catches my eye in a humidor and I u
  4. Recently I bought a new 6ft cabinet humidor it was used and was neglected, I could tell sometimes bit to much humidification was used and then not any at all. Still it was in great condition and I bought it the price was too good to pass up. I'm currently giving the humidor a facelift (COVID times so something to pass the time). My question is with the Spanish cedar inside of it, when I stick my face in the humidor I smell the spicy Spanish cedar...but not the level I want it. I've been reading that a quick sanding using a 400 grit sandpaper should bring back the smell but when I
  5. I've had the same problem with my cigars and 95% of my cigars are for aging I keep a religious 65 - 62 RH. As members said check the RH and adjust it, the humidity in the humidor it is probably to high. Then salt test your hydrometers in your humidor it doesn't matter digital or analog many times this could be the problem. Over the years I found that every time anytime I replace a battery etc etc a simple salt test shows...Wow this is wayyyy off. Next brush down cigars and keep on keeping on. I've had D4's - 2011 25 cab with the same problem white "mold" on caps and even more on the
  6. Thanks @Fosgate great insight and interesting information I've never heard that about Fans causing advanced aging.
  7. Since the start of winter I've discovered the Hoyo de Monterrey Petit Robusto, these have been smoking great - Cream, Cedar, Toasty Sweetness, Coffee notes.
  8. So after the post "Another Wineador Conversation...." I decided move away from my dead wineador with Spanish cedar shelves to pull the trigger and got this. Now Some Help.... 1. Humidification - Boveda vs Heartfelt Beads vs Cigar Oasis Yes. I know everyone has there personal preference and what works for them but for humidor of this size 6ft by 22" aka 10-20Cubic what would you recommend and what has worked the best for members? Also I keep all my cigars at 65% (Gotta say only read nothing but grief about Cigar Oasis when searching threads) 2. Smart Hygromete
  9. Very interesting. One wonders how long this will last aka "the back and forth embargo" is this just temp until a new admin comes in and takes is all away for votes.. who knows. Only thing that is a head scratcher is how will it effect Cuban Cigar production? New American buyers means new demand = quality going down / or does it mean a update of factories equipment and quality goes up?
  10. Deff don't know how to feel about this without being over "sensitive" but..... Chinese food packaging cigars to celebrate Chinese New Year...come on Punch marketing team lol jezzzz I'm sure the Asian market around the world will want these smokes to bring in the Chinese New Year with friends and family hahahah. It also seems that you can get Punch Egg Roll, & Punch Chop Sue cigars too.....God?
  11. Interesting I do believe that I ran into excess moisture over the years due to trying to keep the cigars at that 18C. I recently found a place in Toronto that cuts and sells Spanish cedar so maybe even making a cab might be better to hold growing collection or just keep fridge line it with cedar and keep in a cool spot. ?
  12. I've been trying to age my cigars so I've always kept those cigars at 65RH 65, once again seems like that is the magical number for aging. I'm just talking a stab in the dark but I'm assuming that 65/65 helps keep the oils longer?
  13. Ok I've been racking my brain over the past few days going over old threads, other websites, and Youtube videos ( CigarClimatology great info btw ) about building a Wineador and the pro and cons of various storage ex. wineador, air seal tubber, cabinet. I've come to a intellectual impasse of information and will throw it out to the forum now. That being said I've build 2 thermoelectric wineador's in the past and they have worked great, a few days ago one of my wineador's kicked the bucket R.I.P. so now I find myself reassessing my storage methods. Once again I never had problems with th
  14. Once again stores shall remain nameless, but not "legal" I've seen it happen on more then one occasion in "Head Shops" and sometimes in dispensaries, disensaries are bit more diligent about smoking indoors being gov regulated.... but still happen because they know what's coming. Read bellow if you want to see the APEX of hypocrisy & as Cigar smokers we should be ?.... Toronto could soon be getting legal cannabis lounges and cafes (blogto.com)
