I purchased a box of Don Alejandro about 6 months ago and I've been letting them rest. I began smoking them and 4 out of the 5 that I've smoked seem to be rolled very tight and were difficult to draw to say the least. Its a shame because they are such beautiful cigars and the flavor was there in spades but the draw was tight enough that it cheated the experience. I understand that cigars are a handmade product and I certainly hope that I've just picked the tight ones in the box and the rest are fine. Does anyone know if this is a common issue for the Don Alejandro? I know they were discontinued... Also, do you have any advice as to fix the issue ? I tried massaging the cigars several times and rolling them between my fingers to no avail. Thanks all!
Good morning / afternoon / evening everybody! I've browsed around the forum and used the search feature but still needed to start up this forum! Hopefully, that's okay? Based on all the feedback and suggestions I gathered, I setup a tupperdor that sits very nicely at 62% RH. It's relatively stable but have noticed a few times as of late where it has dropped to 60/61% (maybe due to weather and heat being low during the day when I'm not home) and has gone as high as 64% at least once based on the hygrometer. Don't mind the low reading in the picture. That only happens when I open the box to add or re-sort. Thanks the our wonderful 24:24 deals, I've managed to collect quite an assortment of quarter boxes and singles with more on the way thanks to this week! As such, I really need your help and input to know if I am on the right path or what I might need to tweak to support more cigars before they arrive! Currently, I've used old cigar boxes as my trays and I've had to stagger them due to the size of my Tupperdor. I've also lined the tupperdor with cedar sheets. I'm using a 320g Boveda pack to sustain my humidity. With more cigars on the way, would it be safe to continue this process or would I need to do something differently like drill holes in the trays for my air circulation? Right now, I also have about 38 NCs in a separate cigar box/cab but they are in the tupperdor as well. If needed, I may need to relocate them into something else to keep this one strictly for CCs but in the mean time this is what my setup is. I've included pictures for reference. Any help, advice, input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!
Hi Guys, I recently bought a Behike 54 and a Behike 56 whilst on Holiday in Brisbane in January. As excited I was to buy these I had second thoughts after leaving the vendor. I was surprised that they had so many boxes of Behikes which seems quite odd considering a lot of the major/reputable shops in Australia that I know of - don't have or are having a lot of trouble sourcing due to the bad crops experienced in Cuba recently. Maybe I am just crazy and loosing my mind but I thought I'd show you some pics to see what you guys think. These Behikes both were manufactured in 2016. Points/Observations: - The Behike 54 looks like it wasn't cut 100% straight and as you can see in the pictures; it is on a bit of an angle. - The Behike 56 sports the old Cohiba Hologram (not the new "chequered" hologram) which is pretty odd noting this cigar is from 2016... (I believe the old hologram was discontinued in 2014?) - The Behike 54 has the new hologram but the words "Cohiba" and "Behike" are difficult to see. I compared this to my genuine BHK 52s (I bought a box recently) and the words look much clearer. Sorry for the huge photo dump. I hope the pictures come out ok. Any thoughts and insights is much apprecaited! Luca P.S - Please note that the picture of the foots of the cigars - The BHK 54 is on the left and the BHK 56 is on the right.
