  1. I think there are less and less people laughing lately.
  2. Here are the photos I’ve gotten so far. Still have not seen pics of the actual cigars, just the box.
  3. A friend just bought a couple of boxes of Cohiba sublimes and asked for my opinion. The first thing I noticed was that the green warranty seal was attached to the wooden box, not the outer cardboard box as I expected. I mentioned this to him and he sent a photo he found on that shows a photo of the seal attached to the box. Under cohiba, 4th row 2nd column did the sublimes come this way or is the photo on the page in error? I’ll get some additional photos and post in the appropriate group, but am I mistaken that sublimes always came in an outer cardboard box and the seal was attached to that?

    Storage Temps

    Hi .. this is surprising. I’ve always heard that beetles won’t hatch until temps reach about 80f over a period of a couple of days. Other than a temp controlled humidor, 65-69f deg can be rather difficult to maintain. I have kept my cigars at about 64-65% rH for several years and have had temps fluctuate between about 67-74f depending on the time of year and the house temp. Can you elaborate on your research and/or experience? Thanks.
  5. Well, it’s all working out for me. I’ve been telling her for years that I just didn’t have the time to visit the in-laws.
  6. Thanks for reaching out to me. I’d love to attend but I had made plans a while back. thanks for putting this together. I’ll keep an eye out for the next one.
  7. As most have said, it’s spam. It’s always a good idea to drill down into the source email address. Most of the time it will be a Gmail account or something other than you would expect a legitimate company to be using.
  8. Most of the home vacuum sealers allow you to seal the pouch without pulling the air out.
  9. From what I have read in the past, no, Rob does not freeze cigars. It’s my understanding that the cigars destined for export are frozen in Cuba before they hit the boat. Cigars destined to be sold in Cuba are not, hence the recommendation that you should freeze anything purchased in Cuba.
  10. The Michters is really nice. Look for their sour mash. It’s fantastic. Only comes out a couple of times a year and gets bought out fairly quickly (at least in my area). If you have a regular store ask them to call you if they get it in.
  11. Not a choice, but the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Chicago is the walking dead showing up at the voting booth (well, you asked.)

    This might help, but I think that other impurities in the air might tend to get absorbed just in the normal course of its normal action. It just makes sense that sooner or later they become less accurate. Again, I have no proof, just my own logic. And as I said before, they’re cheap enough that I just toss them.

    I’ve heard that the humidity is not as accurate after they’ve dried out and are recharged. I thought this made some sense as impurities are probably absorbed into the pack after the original packaging is opened and as time goes on, but I have no proof of this. I’m one if those guys who hates to throw anything away, but these are cheap enough to where I don’t really worry about it.
  14. It appears that somebody dropped it at some point before you got it.
