  1. Maybe try to edit the original post and see if there is anything funky going on with the links. Actually as I write this, the top of the page looks fine again for me... Dunno
  2. I think it's got something to do with the link to the Miami Herold that's running down the whole thread behind the posts. When I viewed your thread on my phone last night I didn't have this issue.
  3. Interesting read. Thanks for that. Can’t wait to see how it plays out over the next couple of months.
  4. Great looking humidor you got there. Can't beat the price...
  5. Thanks for the review! Looking forward to my box coming in from 24:24! Could be the same box code as yours.
  6. +1 on the above You could get some Beads at 62% and 65% respectively and put them in the containers dry. Once the humidity reads about right, replace the beads with you Bovedas and you should be good to go.
  7. Interesting on both accounts, but no. Never tried or even heard of this rum. Only Rum from Mauritius I'm aware of is the Mauritius Gold. Most of the info online, again comes from European sites. But my two go-to Web-stores don't show it in stock. I couldn't find any age statements, but based on the price, I would guess 7-12 maximum.
  8. Even though it won't come in before Christmas, I scored a box of Diplomaticos #2 at the 24:24 yesterday, that I consider my luck Christmas Gift to myself!
  9. I would do the highest number beads first. Let them acclimate and then do the lower.
  10. That’s actually good news, as it means they could legally sell it in the US. If it wasn’t for the ongoing trademark dispute with Bacardi. Honestly though, I think it doesn’t really have anything to do with Cuba. Just shows how aggressively Pinot Richard is marketing the Havana Club brand on the European market. Or how important the European market is to them.
  11. Great deal! now if anybody wanted to get rid of some Diplomaticos #2, I’d be really excited! *hint* ?
  12. I just did a picture search and found this on a German site: http://www.rum-kontor.de/epages/63120259.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/63120259/Products/05040201 Price there is 500 Euro. Unfortunately I have no idea about the releases, and the website doesn't give much information either... But I would think, this is the original packaging from the 60s:
  13. My top five would be: 1 Appleton Estate 21 year old ~$115 2 Diplomatico Single Vintage 2002 ~$80 3 Ron Santiago de Cuba 20 anos ~$110 4 Edmundo Dantes 15 anos ~$80 5 Zacapa Reserva Limitada 2014 ~$80 Non of those is above the $150, but I'm not complaining Now if money wasn't an issue I'd get this: La Isla del Tesoro
  14. That's why he sad "MORE than the 50-100$ desktops on Amazon is NO ISSUE". +1 on the Daniel Marshall humidors. They look amazing! But not sure if they would be readily available in Singapore...
  15. Nice selection my wife got me from her most recent trip to Europe:
  16. My Christmas box was a 10er of Montecristo No. 2. Guess I play in a different league...
  17. Generally, if the humidification device is installed in the lid of you humidor, the top shelve is always going to be "wetter" than the bottom. Your hygrometer shows 78%, that way too high. First I'd empty the whole humidor out. Then wipe all interior surfaces with high proof alcohol. Let the humidor air out for a while. Wipe down all of your cigars and smoke the ones affected most first (after you let them dry out some). Then put your cigars back in, without any humidification! Check the percentage after a few days. I'f it's still too high, leave the humidor open for a couple of hours and recheck after a while. If it's too low, get some 65% Bovedas, to keep the humidity down. For some reason the 69% are too much for your humidor. Then check back with us and let us know how it worked out. Might be a good example for others.
  18. Sweet, will be watching this one for sure! Keep up the good work and post updates regularly ;)
  19. Wow, this second one is another piece of art! I'd like to see some more pics of the inside as well, if you have them. As I mentioned before we'll be starting on my first humidor as well, any little details help! Really like how your lids are very shallow, compared to all the other humidors you see with the hygrometer and humidification in the lid, that just waste a lot of space in the box. I will be using Bovedas in the back and my SensorPush, so no need to put anything in the lid.
  20. 11 and 20 year old Ron Santiago de Cuba. Can't wait to get into them!
  21. Great looking Humidor. Really like the light colored spline joints. Getting ready to build my first Humidor here. Well actually a buddy of mine is the woodworker and I'm coming up with the design. Hopefully it comes out half as nice as yours!
