  1. I am thinking this is fine - but I just added a wood humidor from American Chest to my collection. I age and long-term store my cigars at 65% in various tupperdors with cedar trays. Ive moved about 50 or so cigars to the humidor that already have age on them to basically be my smoking stash. I seasoned the humidor for 2 full weeks with a Boveda seasoning kit and the humidor passes the dollar bill test. However, one of the joints on the back left corner where the Spanish Cedar is laid doesn't come together tightly, there is a small gap. Anyway - I now have it loaded with cigars
  2. That’s a good point - hasn’t considered building regs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. Not currently a home owner - but wouldn’t the most sensible, affordable and probably most effective solution be to build something entirely separate from the house? You could build something elaborate or simply repurpose a prefab shed into a prefab smoking room. All the privacy and quiet you could want and none of the smell in the rest of the house?

  6. Cohiba. Tried a lot of Vitolas and never been impressed. Far too lackluster for the money. In their price range I would expect near perfect consistency too - and in my experience they don’t deliver on that either. Only exception being medio siglo, which I have enjoyed.

  7. Never had a bad Padron - think you will be ok. With one exception - their Damaso line. No bueno. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks I’ll keep this handy for my next few reviews Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Fair enough - I tried a similar approach to this with NC’s and it worked out well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. What a strange idea. Im back at it again with RyJ SCthis since I don’t have any other full Cuban boxes aside from Monte 2 - and I love those Monte 2's. I wanted to try this with something that I hadn’t been enjoying and that I hoped I could save with this test. Same box for both. I tossed the box and didn’t record the full code, just the date. Didn’t know it was important at the time. Now I know better. They have been put down and resting for over 30 days at 65%/70deg.

  11. Thanks everyone for the help.

Upmann - CUBA - Number 2
  12. Thanks a lot - I tend to prefer the smaller ring gauge myself normally. I’ll keep this in mind. Ideally over the next 4-5 months I can identify and purchase 5-6 more boxes to start aging. I don’t want to be stupid. But I really don’t mind putting down coin for cigars that I do enjoy. Most expensive sticks I’ve had so far aren’t even Cuban at the moment - the Padron 50th at $50 a pop. They are a top 5 of mine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Thank you! I love Monte’s for sure. I’ll add R&J to the list. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. 1926 is great. The 1964 is totally better. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Im wondering the same thing - I have cigar in mind for this test but its an NC.
  16. I may simply add these to the list! Great input. Thank you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. If you want to skip the wall of text - skip down to the first bolded line below! I am trying to build up stock and do it wisely so I don't get stuck with boxes I don't enjoy - right now I am at about 300 sticks. I am doing this both so I have sticks on hand for every occasion that I enjoy and I can share, but also so that I can start aging some of my real favorites. I have been systematically trying to try many NC and Cuban sticks over the past 6 months to identify some of my favorites. My system has been that I buy two single sticks of everything that I want to try (I have probably
  18. Adding to my list - thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. That’s crazy. It’s basically a giant tupperdor? I suppose coolers are air tight? How many boxes would you say one of those can hold? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. [mention=35421]bijan[/mention] What are you using for a coolerdor? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Their boxes are always great. Picked up some Tatuaje Miami Cojunu 2012 Sumatra’s that really blew me away not too long ago. If you like a full cigar that’s deep on chocolate flavors give those a shot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Don’t have 3 to throw in the list, but: Monte 2 - I consider this to be medium-full. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. 1. You should have seasoned your humidor. Patience is key. Depending on how long it’s been in use now probably not at issue anymore. 2. Check the seal on your humidor. If you can put a dollar bill under the Iid and it slides out easily it’s not tight enough. It also should be completely stuck. 3. If you want to use 62% then the most appropriate place for that is in a sealed tupperdor. So you could consider switching the tup and the wood humidor bovedas. General rule is of you are going to go a little higher on humidity the best place to do that is a humidor since they are not 100% air tight.
  24. By far my favorite NC cigar makers. Love Padron across the board almost with that strong Nicaraguan tobacco and near perfect construction and consistency. AF is one of the only mild cigars I like - religious smoker of the Hemingway line and their exquisitos are great with a cup of coffee in the morning as a quick smoke. I’ll be in line to try these for sure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
