  1. Going a little unorthodox here. Had I seen this prior to smoking #4 earlier I would have taken some picture. I’m not going to mention what cigar I believe this to be because of the competition but if it’s what I think it was, the last one I had treated me exactly the same way. This cigar was a very nice looking pyramid that I’ve had in a ziplock with a 62% boveda for 3 months so the moisture should have been right in my sweet spot. When I cut it, it was obvious this cigar was going to be trouble. Almost no draw at all.. I did some work with the perfectdraw and got a little airflow going so decided to push forward. It lit very reluctantly and offered very little smoke. After relighting about 8 times to get through the first inch, all I was getting out of it was harsh, tannic flavors. After fighting it for almost an hour, the bottom couple inches of wrapper were starting to crack and peel off. I decided to cut a couple inches off of it to clear the damaged portion and hopefully bypass the plug but this did little to help. It seemed that the only way I could get decent smoke through it was to keep the lighter on it and that wasn’t going to happen. Ultimately, between the way it burned and the little I was able to get out of it, I think I know what it was and would definitely classify this cigar as a constant nemesis.
  2. First time trying one of these. After successfully completing a project at the house, it seemed a worthwhile time to break it out. 1/3: Needed a little draw work but after some time with the perfectdraw, I got her going. Lots of smoke and a good burn. A little cream and sweet spice. 2/3: burn continues to be on point. Starting to build into some really great peanut butter flavors. Still a bit of the sweet spice in there but moving to the background a bit. 3/3: really enjoying this thing! I haven’t had a peanut butter blast from a cigar like this before. Can’t wait to see how the rest of the box develops.
  3. Did t really even need to read this one. Just seeing Seinfeld was all I needed. The guys a riot!
  4. I found Spanish cedar at a local specialty lumber store. It’s expensive... If there’s a cheaper option that will hold humidity as well and costs a lot less, I’d definitely investigate.
  5. I converted a TV cabinet a few months ago. Been meaning to post the start to finish but haven’t gotten around to it. I’m very much a novice woodworker but found it to be a fairly easy project. Made the doors, shelves, etc. Here’s the finished product. I’ll try to post all the pictures in a separate post later. It seals great. I used closed cell foam which is what Bob Staebell recommended.
  6. The vastness of the universe is simply too much to for me to believe that we’re the only intelligent beings out there.
  7. Hot damn!! Just played a really shitty round of golf so this is well timed! Needed a pick-me-up (though the scotch is helping)! Thanks FOH!!
  8. Haven’t seen any Cazadores in a while. Any on the horizon?
  9. Where are people finding these for even $10/stick?? I’m seeing them regularly on the secondary market for $20+ per cigar...
  10. That one is a little tougher but have to go with Bond. It just transcends too many generations to wipe it away.
  11. Very cool piece! I have a trunk that my great grandfather used when he came to the USA in the very early 1900’s that I’m planning to do something similar with. Thought it would be a nice addition to my office and a cool conversation piece.
