  1. This is definitely true. Their rankings seem to draw more ire than anything else. Admittedly, their rankings can be a little bit of a head scratcher.
  2. Wow! These are not encouraging stories for someone hoping to visit the island for the first time. 😬
  3. I agree it’s good for the industry. Is he the youngest person to grace the cover?
  4. The anejados program takes another beating! Thanks for the review, its a major service to the community considering the entry price on these cigars.
  5. Ok. My only idea then would be that your cigars are giving off that extra moisture or the humidity canisters in the Avallo are passively letting out moisture even though the system isn’t calling for it. I’m not that familiar with his canister system though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’m asking if you know what the RH is in your house, outside of your humidor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. What’s the ambient RH in your room? I’m assuming you have the humidifier set below 65. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. @Ethernut this ashtray has been well loved and the story makes it even better! 😂
  9. Pulled out a good looking single I had sitting in a drawer. Uncertain of the code on this one, but know it was a 2018 box. Cazadores are a RyJ offering that I enjoy with a strong cup of coffee while I work. These are not complex and even in the Lonsdale format there isn’t a lot of evolution. What the cazadores has is strength. This cigar packs a wallop of flavor which pretty much boils down to cedar and some jammy undertones. This isn’t like the clear cherry flavor I get from the more delicate offerings from RyJ, but rather a gritty saturated jam. If you have tried RyJ and passed on it because you felt it was too light bodied, you owe it to yourself to try the cazadores. This particular example is young and was firing on all cylinders. It got a little harsh as a neared the band as expected for its age. All in all the cazadores are one of the cigars I enjoy coming back to on certain occasions because I know exactly what I’m getting. This example was no different - full blast cedar and jam. I’d give this stick a 90.
  10. If you want to monitor while you are away, (in my opinion) the best option is SensorPush with a WiFi gateway. Your active humidity will only become a problem if your ambient RH is high. You can use beads or Boveda to draw some moisture out of the cabinet, but you will need to dry down the beads/boveda when they are saturated.
  11. Monte — not that I haven’t had good ones before, just underwhelming considering the vast array of options in the marca.
  12. Well if you want to have some aged stock you need to buy more than you smoke. If you smoke an average of 4 a week you are going to be smoking most of your stock if you bought 8-10 boxes (25ct) in a year.
  13. The weather is the biggest determinant for when I take breaks in cigar smoking. My 4 season porch is the only smoking lounge nearby and it can be uncomfortable to vent the smoke in the dead of winter. I've never really noticed any addiction/dependency issues with cigars. In fact, I think there have been studies suggesting that the slower nicotine transmission of premium cigars can't create as strong of an addiction connection as the fast absorption of cigarettes through the lungs. Can't link it off the top of my head though.
  14. I really wanted to try these, but yeah, the cost for a petit robusto turned me off.
