  1. Dry unless i'm smoking a cigar while both hands are busy (fishing with a spinner bait, putting on the golf course). I try to keep it dry as possible to avoid the cigar from going bitter. DD all day long!
  2. This is the first time I’ve tried this cigar. (I’ve previousely tried a single No 50 and several of the older band coronas). It came from a box of 10 and has been resting in my humi for about 2 months. For me - this was a subtle flavored cigar at this point, so bear with me as I try to describe some of the flavors. Initial draw: good draw with a hint of sweetness and a hint of cinnamon First third: light bodied with subtle hints of hay and cinnamon. Second third: hay, hint of sweetness showing up along with nuances of a praline dusted with cinnamon and cumin. Wonderful aroma. Last third: delicious subtle flavors all coming together wonderfully. Transitioning to light bodied +. The last of the last third showing some youthful edges. Conclusion: This is a very young cigar. The flavors at this points were subtle and nuanced all the way through, but the flavors that were there were delicious. I predict that this will be a wonderful cigar with some more age.
  3. I've had good results using cigar glue and a 'donor' cigar wrapper. I keep a few cigars around that may be plugged or severely damaged (ie 'donor'/non-smokable), and gently remove the wrapper, the best that you can. You can then cut a small amount (patch) from that wrapper and glue over the damaged good cigar. It helps to moisten the donor wrapper before gluing, so that it will adhere better. Let it dry for a couple of minutes and you should be good to go. It doesn't always look pretty (if the wrapper colors don't match), but who cares as it will smoke fine. I keep the donor wrappers in a baggie and keep it the humidor for future repairs.
  4. I've gotten a tea note from a few of the Hoyo San Juans that I've tried.
