Fairly recent discovery of mine as well. Those and the Siglo IIs are the best Cohibas IMO. 

May I ask how old that one was?

Oh, and by the way...GO RAIDERS!!

Not sure of age, as I purchased them as singles.  I have a 5-pack of.  III’s that are enjoying a world tour at the moment - looking forward to trying them.  Haven’t had the II yet.  Wanted to see what the Cohiba hype was all about, and with my limited experience, I get it!

 

 

 

And yes...... HOW ‘BOUT THEM RRRRRRAAAAAAAAIIIDDDUUUUUHHHHZZZZZZZZ?!?!?!!!!

Sorry to hear this.  I’d Chuck everything as it’s too risky and probably already contaminated.  I’d sterilize that humidor with rubbing alcohol to kill any eggs, let that completely dry for a couple weeks for the alcohol to dissipate with lid open, then wipe it down with distilled water, let it dry again, and then I’d restart the prepping/seasoning process.    
 

Im going to guess you got some NCs in that humidor?  Or sticks direct from Cuba?  At some point it got too hot in that box, maybe the angle of the sun this time of year was shining on it?
 

This is why I freeze everything upon arrival, I’m terrified of this happening.  No matter who it’s from, Prez, other online vendors, or an LCDH.  Day in fridge unwrapped, at least 2 days at 0 F usually wrapped and taped in ziplock or clingwrap with as much air removed, another day in fridge unwrapped, then into my humi.

I'm rather cheap and I don't think there would be harm in smoking all the cigars with holes in them - unless there are other opinions otherwise? I suppose the beetles wouldn't be poisonous (assuming they are still inside) and/or any excrement would be fine? Sounds disgusting but I suppose it is highly likely that they have always been there (in Cuba, before being frozen). 

The RASS and Monte 2s were from FOH and the others were all from one other retailer. I actually suspect it would be the temperature increase this summer that caused the eggs to (finally) hatch.

I had a mini scare a few weeks ago but turned out they were not cigar beetles but paper ones as there were no holes in the cigars but i still isolated and froze the boxes anyway and vac sealed the rest of my stock in case.

Glad it wasn't your main stash that was affected.

 

That's great that your stock wasn't affected. I also plastic wrap all my aging boxes individually - to keep the beetles and myself out!

C&C time. Parti Presidentes [UBM SEP18] - 24:24 

I am a Partagas freak of sorts. I have not had a Presidente but seen them up on 24:24. Should I pull down a box ?

Another DC tonight after a dinner cooked up for moms. She gets Filet Mignon, a touch over rare, with a reduction of Merlot, shallots, crimini mushrooms, and Irish butter of course. A great day I say. Oh and the HDM is spot on excellent so far. Cheers

Paired with one of my favorite Rye’s I see.  I love the HDM DC, looks like a great evening!!

First time at the BH for me. The store was weak on scotch and better on bourbons. This was the best rye they had. It's damn fine. And BTW The HDM DC 2019 is smoking down the house. Who knew?
