  1. My Savoy Executive desktop is like that! I fee like my cabinet needs to be also. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Don’t think for a second that hadn’t crossed my mind the moment I found out he was retiring. “I pushed him into it, and I deserve to be tarred and feathered” was what flashed in my mind. But, in all seriousness, Bob was great and he seemed perfectly happy to help me out. To be completely honest, I wouldn’t be able to identify wet lumber smell if I was hit in the balls with a sopping 2x4 (I am only a humble desk jockey), but that would make sense given that the smell shows up when the door is closed and the cabinet has been humidified. When I opened up the door and aired it out, it would go back to smelling like Spanish cedar. I don’t know what the solution is with this cabinet, but the fact remains that I need to start think about ordering something larger (I promise I wasn’t trying to hijack this thread).

  3. I was surprised also! Cabinet is definitely one of the last Bob produced (rumors of retirement started up shortly after taking delivery). Quality is clearly top notch, and Bob did everything he could to help me out (he went above and beyond his duty), so I’m at a bit of a loss and wondering if it’s all in my head (although, I really don’t think it is). Would love to get a second sniff-test opinion from another Aristocrat owner, but it’s difficult to transmit an odor via the interwebz! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’m considering ordering from Avallo as well. Took shipment of a Mini-Tall from Aristocrat a while ago, but I’ve run out of space (I know... I should have listened and gone bigger). My main concern, though, is odors. Unfortunately, my Aristocrat has had some issues with odors. I was hoping it’d have a neutral odor, or smell mildly of Spanish cedar, but since taking delivery, it’s had a less than pleasing smell (sort of like walking through a home depot - makes sense given the new materials used to build the thing, but would you want your cigars smelling like that?). So much so that I won’t put singles in the singles drawer (they tend to take on the smell and not smoke great - boxes do a decent job of blocking the smell, so I’m not worried about those). Tried airing it out (for weeks with a fan inside), but whenever it’s humidified up, the smell returns. Don’t get it, but anyway. . . Has anyone else had similar issues (an I just being insane?), and how is Avallo in that regard? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. Been working for the city for a little over two years now. Most expect that I work a strict 9-5 schedule (many believe municipal workers are lazy/entitled, but most of the people I work with are very dedicated and hard working), but these past 2 years have afforded me very little free time and a pretty dismal work/life balance. With that being said, I’ve been rewarded for all that hard work (3 promotions over 2 years, one of which just came this past week; a good salary for a city job), so it’s hard to complain too much, but it’s taking a toll on my health and social life. With the recent promotion, I’ll be focusing more on delegating so that I can go home at a decent time each night and relax more on the weekends. I’ve also been hoarding cigars with little time to go out for a smoke (living in NYC doesn’t help), so my cabinet is pretty much full. Need to make more room! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Like some others in this thread, I’ve been hanging out, but not contributing much (take pity on me - I’m just trying to learn as much as I can before I open my mouth), but this will be a great incentive for further involvement. Looking forward to this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Used to go here when I lived in Jersey. Good place to go with a group or if you want to be solitary and anonymous. Tons of space. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Sure did! Had to weep a little. Cigars were a bit too rich for my blood (for the moment). I’ll catch the next one! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Being fairly new to these environments, I’ve been pretty cautious about where I spend my hard earned money. With that being said, I need to find a way to get some aged stock while I sit on the newer stuff. Always crossing my fingers hoping that the next 24:24 will be aged stock, as I trust this wonderful place above all others. Maybe I too will have excess inventory someday soon!

  11. Just placed an order for an Mini Tall DX. Having a hard time concentrating at work I'm so excited about this thing, although I'm almost kicking myself before the lumber's even cut. Keep thinking that I should have ordered the M Plus, but space is limited (NYC apartment) and I'm just starting out. I'll have to upgrade or get another if I keep going the way I'm going! I blame all of you . . .
  12. Hello from New York! Very new to Cuban cigars. I can see I'm going to learn a ton here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
