Campanas (3/5)

  1. Now that I have the circulation fans, maybe 1000 CFM is a little overkill...lmfao! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  2. I used General Finishes water based dye stain as a base followed by oil based stain and then water based poly for a clear coat. One of the unique characteristics of aged wood is that oil based stains will turn that "grey" wood black. So, you want some of that black to show through but not all of it. If you look at the inside of the box prior to insulation, you can see the original saw marks. I really wanted to keep that look but it was not doable to keep that look and make a floating panel. The thickness would vary too much. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  3. Update: Sides, back and shelves installed. Insulation in and working on the inner walls. Once that's done, I need to order the tangential fans and power supply so I can get measurements for the 3rd walls. Slowly but surely.... Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  4. As many have said, everybody's pallete is different. If you like the flavors of the Cohibas you have tried, grab a box of Siglo II's. They have been lights out the last few years. I blew through my '15 in just over a year and IMHO, worth every penny. I have '16, '17 and '18 boxes waiting in the wings. Worst case, if you dont like them, I can take them off your hands
  5. Howdy All!! Sorry it's been so long for an update, but I have had to work all over the friggin country as of late. So far this year it's been MD, VA, NY back to CO and now CA. Bought the house we live in but haven't had much time to work on the humidor. My wife rebuilt our deck while I have been in Cali so I need to ask her permission to use my tools. Lol! There has been some progress. The sides are framed up and stained and the back is on. The machined red oak frame around the t and g side panels will be painted black due to some irregular voids. Ill have to get a close up pic for you to see what I mean. I have to mount the shelf that separates the compressor area from the plenum chamber then I can start installing the insulation.
  6. A petit corona fits my time frame for most of my cigar time. With the reduction of the petit corona lineup, I supplement with Robustos. I prefer a smaller ring gauge for the most part. Hermoso #4's fit the bill better than robustos. For me, its all about how much coffee I have. Lol! I drink a full french fress (970 grams of h2o) so it has to fit in that time frame. Unless I am drinking booze of course
  7. That's the magic of the D4. A good. Cigar fresh but give it some time and it turns into a rockstar. I have an '11 box that is so complex I really struggle to pin down the flavors.
  8. Honeydew melon from a freshie RyJ Cazzie. Amazing but only one puff had the melon. The toasted marshmallow in Fonseca #1s is amazing and unique as far as I can tell. No off putting flavors as of yet.
  9. Humidor Project Update: Face frame is done and the side panels are ready for dye/stain/clear coat. I was going to leave them rough like reclaimed lumber (all the wood is machined from 100+ y.o. boards) but I realized that after resawing the boards on the table saw, that almost every board is bookmatched with a mirror image on the other panel. They are a mixture of white oak and beech. The aged white oak (brown boards) is spectacular. I wish I could get enough of it for several other projects. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  10. I would have been happy with a ‘13-‘15 Box of Espys. I was just hoping for a slightly aged box to smoke out of while my ‘16 Box got some age. When they pop up you gotta jump. My wallet wishes I hated Cohibas. Lol!
  11. So, a pretty simple question. What is the best cigar you have ever smoked worth to you in dollar amount? Feel free to include future purchases as well as trades, swaps etc. For me, it was an “0” something LGMDO#4 that was given to me by a member here and Colorado Herf guy. Literally a life changing moment to taste just how good a cigar can be. I seriously wanted to eat the nub. I would drop an easy 1K to get that experience 25 more times.
  12. Maybe...just maybe the best beer with a Monte: Chocolate-Orange Imperial Stout. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  13. The wifey ends up opening most of the boxes I get delivered when I work out of town. I love it when she sends me a text saying “I can smell these through the package wrapper!”
  14. I've done some vertical tastings on the RASS by year. It seems to me that these hit their stride around 4 or 5 years old. It's a cigar that will slap you around a bit but that fruitcake flavor really stands out at the 4 to 5 year mark. JMO of course
  15. I know, right?!?!?! I love the perlas. How in the hell did I miss RGPC's?!
