Marevas (2/5)

  1. I have about 900 cigars with an average age of 3-5 years on them. I only smoke 1-2 per week and I’m worried about aging them to death! I have the opposite problem compared to many folks on here. I’ve overbought!
  2. Buyers set the market price, not sellers. If nobody’s paying, nobody’s selling. Viva la free market.
  3. Ray @PigFish, this seems as good an opportunity as any to give a quick note of thanks for the info you’ve provided over the years. I watched your videos, read your posts, and applied it to my troubled setup. And I’ve enjoyed many great cigars in optimal conditions as a result. The internet is full of bad info about the subject. Yours seemed counterintuitive to me at first, but I tried it, and I’ll be damned if it didn’t work! My humidors are humming in perfect conditions now . I lurk here these days and seldom post, but your input really helped me and I wanted to say thank you.
  4. Just lit up a LUB ABR 14 HUPC. One of my first-ever 24:24 purchases.
  5. I can’t say for sure because I didn’t get my hands on this 2014 box until late 2017. It was a HQ box from 24:24 and already had a few years in it when I bought it. The first few sticks from the box were too rough, too unrefined. I tried one every six months or so, just to check. This one hit the mark from the time I lit it up. It finally clicked.
  6. GEO MAY 2014 Mag 46. After (almost) five years from the box date, the mongrel has finally left these cigars. No more “knees and elbows”. HQ box from our host.
  7. I’ve salvaged far worse cigars by using this product. Same manufacturer as the PerfecDraw tool and the stuff flat out works. Only $10 on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/PerfecRepair-Cigar-Repair-Crack-Sealer/dp/B072BD918F/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?crid=2TY81TWTDACZH&keywords=cigar+repair+glue&qid=1554309262&s=gateway&sprefix=cigar+rep&sr=8-2
  8. Enjoyed my first-ever Sir Winston last night, the first one from a SEA MAY 17 box. I’ve had two boxes of HUSW sitting in my tupperdor for a year and a half, untouched. I’d always make an excuse like “they’ll be better aged” or “save them for special occasions”. From now on, I’ll consider a good cigar to BE a special occasion. Rather than waiting around for the perfect day, I’m going to smoke the damn things, and the same goes for all of the other untouched boxes I’ve put away. All of these cigars won’t do me a bit of good if I get hit by a bus tomorrow. I think it’s time to start wearing my best suit, eating on the good china, and smoking my best cigars!
  9. Just lit my first cigar in several weeks: a PUR OCT 15 Monte PE, on a mild and gorgeous night in Atlanta.
  10. I was gifted a pair of winter gloves from a relative, and both of them were the left handed glove.
  11. Online dating worked for me and I’m now a happily married man, but it took a lot of work and a bit of good luck/fortune to get there. I hit the online dating scene five years ago after my first marriage ended, usually averaging about one date per week. The quality of women varied significantly for me (as it surely must for them also). There were lies and omissions about appearance, age, and marital status (actually divorced versus only separated) that I had to deal with. After numerous low-quality dates early on, I decided to only meet up with women who successfully passed the “phone call test”. Very unusual in this age of texting only, but this screened out about 90% of the duds who couldn’t even pass muster on a 10 minute intro phone call to determine if a face-to-face was justified. I knew from our first meeting that my now-wife was different than the others. We dated for two years and tied the knot on the second anniversary of our first date. We now have a 7 month old daughter and I’m a lucky and grateful man. Bonus Fun Fact: when I first started the online dating experiment, I stumbled across my ex-wife’s profile, and it showed us as a 92% match! I nearly fell out of my chair, laughing! The site asked a lot of questions and gauges compatibility based on responses. Even better, she used an old picture from when we were together, and she cropped me out of the pic. That was MY arm around her! You can’t make this stuff up... TL;DR summary: it worked for me and I wish you all the best if you choose this path!
  12. Currently enjoying a RASCC (PET JUN 16) on a cool clear night in Atlanta.
