  1. i got a roll of these little white stickers, i either put them on the cello or cut a strip of printer paper and use them to tape the ends together. cheap and a roll will last a long time https://www.amazon.com/Bright-Coding-Circle-Stickers-Diameter/dp/B0775V7F67/ref=sxts_rp_s1_0?cv_ct_cx=white+circle+stickers&dchild=1&keywords=white+circle+stickers&pd_rd_i=B0775V7F67&pd_rd_r=6eeb44d3-d647-45c9-b7f6-a13a6e2a97b6&pd_rd_w=2nASm&pd_rd_wg=wDIba&pf_rd_p=e64e557a-9088-4af1-8992-8ddbd7854c7f&pf_rd_r=VEG95K3WMJJY7GADJY29&psc=1&qid=1625438855&sr=1-1-f0029781-b79b-4b60-9cb0-eeda4dea34d6
  2. Partagas Maduro No.1 RUM JUN 19 hoping they get better with age but they are the only box of cubans i have that i can't stand and never even consider smoking
  3. wouldn't say they are my all time fav in terms of flavor but are def my go to reg production smokes that i think meet the perfect balance of size/time, cost and flavor San Cristobal El Principe Montecristo No.4 BRC/ VR fomosos RASC RyJ Exhibicion No.4
  4. thought of going the excel route but for my cubans i copy the 24/24 description into a notepad file and save it with the name and box date as the title, got a folder for full boxes, one folder for partial/singles and a folder for everything smoked/gone. i only use the forum on my pc which makes this a lot easier....for my non-cubans i don't care enough to keep track, just pile em' in🤣
  5. been on a chopin and erik satie kick lately, along with the new tool and avatar albums
  6. the cigars i consistently get fruit flavors from would be any RA for chocolate raisins, the RyJ Exhibicion No.4 for cherry coke, and the JLS2 for chocolate orange
  7. same, been scared to try the lfd double ligero been sitting in the humi for years🤣
  8. never had behike but i liked cream soda with some other cohibas. just saw today too ,sprite mixed with rum tastes almost exactly like an alcoholic cream soda which i want to try
  9. i've noticed if i don't get good sleep it will hit me harder and make me a little queasy, same as when i'm getting over an illness
  10. i like to get creative with my spare bedroom, remove all the fabrics, seal the door and use a window fan. i would probably just buy a tent and a propane heater for my patio otherwise
  11. i recently wanted to slap myself for forgetting daylight savings time and missing out on some 24:24 psp boxes i had been waiting half a year for 😢 i don't have the memory capacity to remember and regret boxes i didn't buy tho 🤣
  12. i've noticed a lot of my non enthusiast friends tend to all know about the cohiba brand as the best in the world so i pick up a bunch of NC cohibas from cbid for $1 or $2 ea and it makes them feel all fancy smoking a cohiba 🤣 most of my friends just smoke weed tho
  13. not as far as i am aware, too low of humidity can dry out the oils and ruin them but as far as high humidity the only cigar ruining danger i know of is mold on the foot (not counting smokability issues). i would personally just make sure to check for mold on both layers of the box and then give them a nice long rest like you got them through the mail. honestly i do that when buying any cigars now, so as long as they don't seem crazy dry i don't worry about it
  14. i would just try them out, if they smoke good then keep smoking them. if they are too wet then take them home and let them rest for a couple months at your preferred rh. unless they are moldy i don't think a slightly higher rh should cause any permanent or irrevocable harm
  15. i thought it was crazy the brand rep Nick Z. from oliva cigars didn't know how to retrohale and learned in this interview at 1:34:00 ?
  16. i would imagine because you can leave the phone at home
  17. not sure where u live but the us amazon still has 1LB heartfelt beads available, there is also a brand called rhshield i have limited experience with but seemed to work the same as heartfelt for me. i switched to boveda from heartfelt a couple years ago, just seemed to work better at regulating rh for me and i like being able to stick the 60g throughout the boxes
  18. i like to keep track of mine like the bird and i also save my cello from my NC and use little round blank stickers to label individual cigars. i've also seen people just buy blank cigar bands from places like https://www.onlinelabels.com/materials/cigar-labels doesn't seem too expensive. a strip of paper with a little cigar glue at the ends would prob work well too
  19. not sure but i feel like it's a lot quicker and easier to just remove the cigar. i guess if you have some need for the added protection or gap filling it might be worth it, but i don't
  20. if it's only for a few months i'll just take the cap off but if it's long term storage i take them out of the tube. i think aging them in the tubes with those cedar inserts gives them an overpowering cedar taste after a few years, plus the peace of mind being able to see they are mold free
  21. i have a box of RyJ petite coronas LEP ABR 17 that i love, tastes like salted caramel to me
  22. only time i use IG is to look at cigars while i shit ? my name is showmethecigars. there's a guy named cigar_nut on there that i think smokes 5-10 nice CC and NC everyday, must cost a fortune
  23. Smart. I'll give that a try next time. I double bag and get the air out as much as I can with straws, so this would be quadruple-bagging, but with careful juggling of the tape, should work. boveda makes those big humidor bags too, or maybe an oven bag would work
