  1. This is all extremely good information! Sounds like I shouldn't bother spending the time nor energy trying to find a fee😅 Thanks everyone.
  2. That's what I'm hoping to find, one that is on the more positive end with those same notes but I know it's a risk.
  3. Yeah, that seems to be the theme I continue to read and hear. That is the great thing about this forum with all the reviews and comments. So much to learn from. It's also why I wouldn't look to buy a box or a quarter box but just 1 or 2. I just can't help but want to see what everyone is talking about for better or worse 🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️.
  4. That's exactly the reason 😅! I'm relatively new to smoking cigars and don't smoke them that often. I've have purchased quarter boxes of almost every regular production cigar available here over the last year or two with the addition of an LCDH or regional box here or there. While letting the Cubans rest since everyone says they need time down, I've been experimenting with non-Cubans to build up my palate and appreciation. Now that im getting ready to dip into the world of Cubans, I've always wanted to see what the controversial Anejados were all about since I'm still very much in the experimental phase of my smoking journey. That is why I just wanted to maybe get 1 or 2 from each of the marcas to try and sample.
  5. Hey everyone, I'm from Canada (Toronto, Ontario) and have been wanting to try the Anejados line for quiet some time. I checked the international store and unfortunately there are no singles for me to pick up and try. Due to the mixed reviews, I don't know if I'd be willing to pick up an entire box or even a quarter box quite as yet but I'd love to pick up 1 or 2 of each cigar if possible so that I can see if it's something I'd be willing to purchase on 24:24. If by any chance there are any members on the forum who are from Canada and might be willing to help me get my hands on a few cigars from the Anejados line, can you please DM me? It would be most appreciated. I apologize in advance if I am breaking any rules and if I am, please take this post down without hesitation. I attempted to search the forum for answers before posting and I mean no offense to anything or anyone here. Just looking for some help. Thank you!
  6. To me, it's more about seeing what the "reading" is when you smoke and understanding if there is a difference between different readings. In all honesty, I'm not sure how accurate it is especially when it comes to dry boxing.
  7. It's funny that I came across this thread because I just experienced the same thing! I do not understand much about how cigars store humidity but I do recall reading a few articles here that spoke of how different temperatures affect the amount of humidity that the cigar absorbs. So, that's how I stumbled across this! Nonetheless, my HumidiMeter just arrived today and I was excited to see how it worked. I took out a cigar that was stored at about 65%RH / 65f for about a year, plugged the meter into the foot and it started at 65% then dropped to about 58%. Confused, I tried another one and it was balanced around 57-58%. So, still confused, I took out a non-Cuban which was stored around 69%RH and 65f for the last year and it balanced around 60%. I figured, this tool must be calibrated wrong. Then, something in me said check the cap of the cigar like you've seen in pictures since it's closed! So, I plugged it into the cap and it read 68%. I checked another non-Cuban and it balanced between 66-69%. Based on that observations, it seems that the cap was closer to the humidor's RH than the foot was. I'm not sure if aging a cigar for a number of years helps balance that out which is why aged cigars smoke so much better but I thought it was an interesting discovery nonetheless. I did also notice on the packaging it says "HumidiMeter calculates relative humidity based on 70 degree Fahrenheit" so maybe that alters the reading as well. Nonetheless, when I get the calibration standard tool to make sure it's reading properlu, I will continue to test and see! It'll be interested to test before dry boxing and after dry boxing as well as how cigars smoke at various readings.
  8. Not sure if anyone will see this but has anyone that has this unit or similar ever felt like or noticed that the humidity at the front near the glass is much lower than elsewhere? I usually keep my Boveda Butler on a shelf or near my boxes but I kept noticing that the built in hygrometer in the drawer was always lower. So, I mounted my Butler beside it and over the last few days the humidity has read about 61%. I tested the hygrometers and they seem fine against 65% so just wondering if this is normal. Any thoughts?
  9. I noticed the same as I tried it. But, it seemed to go from 69% (those were my non Cuban packs) to around 71/72% interestingly enough. I also noticed some other liquid mixed in the water which I assume was from inside the packs. Overall, the small ones recovered nicely from being submerged in the water after some air drying. While its easier than the paper towel method and the packs get far more puffy as well as have their rocks melted, paper towel still seems safer but Im not sure. For the 320g, I just ended up putting a container with distilled water into my Cigar Cooler and hoped the Boveda packs would absorb the excesses humidity. It's been a few weeks now and the container is about dry while humidity remained at 65%/66% so it seems to have worked but it likely was shared amongst all the packs in there. I will try the dumpling steamer method next.
  10. Glad you were able to join @Thade!! From one Oshawa native to another, welcome!! Try not to get addicted to the site, it's a dangerous one!! 😉
  11. Happy birthday!!! Mine is on Friday 😊. Aquarius life!!!!
  12. I've never had the opportunity to try anything from the Anejados line as yet and have heard extremely mixed reviews. However, I would love to pick up quarter boxes of each - separately or as a combined sampler. Might we see any of that on 24:24? They can be spaced out so my bank account can recover 🤣😂.

  13. Ahhh, I got you! Thank you. I'm accustomed to wrapping my 8g with paper towel damped with distilled water for a few days so wasn't sure how to do it with the 320g. So, so sounds like I'd need to buy a new one and repeat the process to keep them ready. Thanks again @Burningman
  14. Sorry to bump up his thread but before opening a new one or asking in the chat.... what method would you recommend to recharge your 320g pack? I have 2 in my cigar cooler and can't necessarily remove them to be recharged but I've noticed that they are shrinking now. Any recommendations?
