  1. All long-term cigar smokers have this feeling that the speed of buying cigars will gradually exceed the speed of smoking cigars after smoking cigars for a long time.😄 Some people collect cigars as they love it, some are for the added value. No matter you are collecting cigars for loving or value added, a common topic is proper storage environment. 18-21°C is recognized as the ideal storage temperature for cigars. If the temperature is lower than 16°C, the expected cigar aging process will be weakened. If the temperature is too high, higher than 24°C, it will cause the cigar b
  2. The internal reason of cigar producing ammonia Ammonia is actually a form of nitrogen transfer in cigar tobacco. The degradation of nitrogen nutrients in tobacco leaves during the aging process leads to the accumulation of NH4+ in the leaves, which reduces the activity of enzymes involved in nitrogen assimilation, such as glutamine synthetase (GS). , So that ammonium ions volatilize into the atmosphere in the form of ammonia through the apoplast. Therefore, if the residual amount of nitrogen in the tobacco soil is high, the excess nitrogen in the tobacco leaves will affect the qua
  3. Spanish cedar wood or Canada cedar wood ? Both of the Spanish cedar wood and Canada cedar wood are quality options to consider for a humidor. Spanish cedar is considered the best wood for a cigar humidor, as this wood is very good at withstanding humidity and maintaining temperature. Here we would like to introduce them in below 2 aspects: 1) Benefit for cigars Advantages of Spanish cedar: Protection from Tobacco beetles: This type of wood can help prevent the tobacco beetles from building up in the humidor.

  5. Brand new fresh as 50 cab ..and I know these are gonna be WAY to young to smoke,..but hey you have to try them to see whats going down!… FIRST IMPRESSIONS - well first off, the smell from the box is ..well hmm NEW as expected .very light barnyard smell and a touch of ammonia mixed with a woody (probably the box) scent. Light Claro wrapper with a slight oily sheen. DRY DRAW - pretty much what is coming from the box in the above comment. FIRST THIRD - very creamy from the kick off. Light cedar hit definitely has some ammonia in the cigar as expected, the la
  6. Habanos is late this year in announcing dates for next February's festival. Usually there is news out in August. Still nothing public yet for next year. Be careful of Cuba travel/tour websites, they usually put out offers early and, as often as not, get the dates wrong, as some have this year. I was just talking with a Habanos distributor and the dates they have are 24-28 February, 2020. I know, in some parts of the world, it's useful to start booking travel arrangements about now.
  7. Hello cigars lovers!!! I´m master student in Enterprise Management in China and for my thesis I´ve chosen to evaluate the HABANOS brand image in China, willl you help me with 5 min of your time?

  8. I spoke with Prez this morning and he agrees that it would be a great idea to have a gathering for any FoH members who will be in Havana for the Habanos Festival next month. The Habanos Festival is from Monday Feb 27 - Friday March 3. The event will be in the restaurant VIPHavana in Vedado from 4pm to 7pm on Wednesday March 1st. A fairly new restaurant, it's a really nice space and great tapas. Not stuffy at all, it'll be relaxing, fun, a few drinks and cigars, absolutely in the spirit of FoH. A time to share stories of our week so far..
  9. Might not be for the living room (my study maybe) or when "guests" are over but if you have a man cave or are a garage smoker... Anyone done anything like this?
  10. No information I'm afraid, just a question. I am hearing a lot of rumours that it is to be Feb 27 - Mar 3, 2017, those dates are on a few blog sites etc. Has anybody heard any actual confirmation of the dates yet? Nothing that I can find on the Habanos site and the festival dates are usually out by this time of year.
  11. Hello Chaps, A dear friend of mine is going to Havana later on this month and has offered to bring back some cigars.. Having been there myself, last year, I know how sometimes poor the selection is in the local tiendas. Has anyone been there recently and seen what is widely available in stock that is worth bringing back? Thanks in advance!
  12. Hello, I tried the Habanos S A verification site but I am getting a server error, are you getting the same error? After entering the code and the captcha a database error is shown.
  13. Hey all, Just got back from Havana with my lady for a week. We had an amazing time there, It was my second time going and my girl's first time. Basically, All the stores I visited had all regular production cigars from mostly 2015, few boxes here and there from 2014. didn't see anything older than that. Habana Libre was the best stocked store by far, had about 10 boxes of Club Allones when I was there. Melia Habana, Melia Cohiba and Conde de la villanueva was worth the trip for the custom rolls, but all had just regular stock on the shelves. No LE's to speak of. Did not have time to go to

  16. Hey there folks, I finally found the time to mount the tubos I've been collecting these years. The last time I posted photos was quite a while ago, back in this thread (http://www.friendsof...showtopic=97233). Here are my Series (top) and Fascination (bottom) shadowbox mountings. Looks a lot nicer in the frame than on the rug. Enjoy!
