  1. Well, I'll be darned. Thanks for that, just ordered a few boxes. For other Canucks:
  2. Smart. I'll give that a try next time. I double bag and get the air out as much as I can with straws, so this would be quadruple-bagging, but with careful juggling of the tape, should work.
  3. I freeze every single thing that goes in the cabinet, period. Cheap insurance. My freezer is at roughly -25°C, and I give everything one day or so in the fridge, 3 days in the freezer (should be enough for the full stick to reach the 1 hour kill time, plus an extra day for paranoia), one more day or so in the fridge, and one day or so at ambient temp before it goes on the cabinet. I just instituted a new policy of also freezing the boxes that don't fit in freezer bags separately after finding a dead beetle in one of them. Could be eggs anywhere. I wish I could find freezer bags that fi
  4. You already got all the advice. I smoke reeeeaaalllly slowly (a DC takes almost 3 hours, a robusto almost 1.5 hours). To me, 68% is way too high. They'll always go out with my pace at that RH. I used to keep everything at 65%, but my smoking stock is actually at 62% right now, and that seems to be the sweet spot for me, but I'd say anything between 62-65 seems to be good.
  5. If you want it with English subtitles, it can be found here:
  6. Time for a Partagas E2 from February 17. First box of Cubans I ever bought (and it came from here), in my stash 1100 days.
  7. This 50-cab from 24:24 (bought in May, not realizing airmail into Canada was shut down) just showed up yesterday morning. Her Majesty demanded her pound of flesh and then some. Win some, lose some.
  8. Just like me, she's built for go, not for show. Started out as an '89 FXRS-SP. Frame, wheels, and tins are pretty much the only thing of that vintage left.
  9. "The Wire" has one homicide detective who is constantly with a cigar. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  10. I have a few of those left from a box a friend and I split almost three years ago (his cousin was visiting from Lebanon and stopped at the duty-free in the Beirut airport for us). They are spectacular. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  11. I'm with you. Have had several plugged, but never under-filled. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  12. And now plain packaging is on the way. Smoking lounges in BC have already been killed a very long time ago.
  13. Darn it...those are my two very top sticks so far, so I have no idea how to pick one. They are both in my "special occasion" shelf...
