  1. Could you send me that article as well? I don't have anything in boxes, they're all in a desktop humidor. Are you saying that would make a difference?
  2. I usually keep my cigars at 70f/60rh, but in the summer my apartment gets up to 80-90f if I don't have the AC on. I drop the humidity down and everything smokes ok, but I'm curious if large temperature swings are detrimental to long term aging in peoples experience. I'm relatively new to cigars and don't have much over 3/4 years old, so I have little experience to really compare. I freeze everything coming in so I'm not worried about beetles.
  3. The Graycliff hotel in Nassau has a cool cigar shop in the back with a nice outdoor area where you can sit and smoke. They also do tours. Got a maduro robusto that was one of my favourite non cubans I've had. They only sell their own brand but I liked what I had.
  4. Thanks for all the replies. Seems like trying to go through the US to Havana can be tricky. Tried to book on American Airlines and tourism isn't considered a valid reason to go through the US enroute to Cuba. Might be better off going direct from Canada and not risking it.
  5. I'm booking a return flight from Toronto to Havana, looking at one with a short stopover in Miami both ways. Has anyone had any experience bringing cigars back through the US enroute to Canada? It's a much better flight but I'm worried about the cigars getting confiscated/duties etc. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  6. First purchase from 24:24, they look and smell great
  7. At the libre LCDH and bought a bunch of singles to smoke while down there. Had to pay for a behike and Rio de Seco in cash while everything else was ok to go on a credit card. Should've tipped me off but I didn't think too much of it. The two paid in cash were fakes, tasted like any fake cohiba you'd get on the street. Everything else was fine though. The bands were real, so I guess they just swapped them onto fakes. Oh well, lesson learned :). Only issue I've had with fakes from a LCDH, though.
  8. Really bland, terrible roll on both. Tasted like every fake Cuban someone has brought back for me lol. I've usually bought singles there in the past and it's always been fine. Probably ok most of the time.
  9. Yeah, I've had some bad experiences at the Havana Libre as well. Got sold a fake behike and hoyo de Rio Seco singles. Also been told I've had to pay cash and that a proper receipt couldn't be written. Never had any issues at the national. Fwiw I've never had any issues with anyone wanting to see receipts when leaving, though.
  10. Stud is Partagas no 2. Dud is Monte media corona/#2
  11. Best humidor in the city imo. Would often grab a smoke and then head next door to the Oxley for a pint. Sorry to hear it's closing.
  12. The white squares on the band shouldn't be cut off by the gold trim. There should be a small space where you can the the black background between them.
  13. Montecristo for me. Had a couple of really great petit edmundos but the rest have been kinda bland imo. Picked up a couple of boxes of the media coronas to have in the winter and I don't like them much at all.
