  1. Exactly. If I smoke an NC the clothes I was wearing need to go right to the wash as they will reek for days. Meanwhile if it was a CC I can smell the shirt a couple hours later and it doesn’t smell. In the winter I smoke in my basement. I can’t smoke NC’s down there as it will smell god awful for days but Cubans the smell isn’t bad and is gone quickly.
  2. Not only do they smell more pleasant they taste a hell of a lot better and my clothes don’t stink after like they do with non Cubans.
  3. You do know they are frozen before export and that beetle hole would have more than likely happened prior to leaving Cuba right?
  4. Agreed but at the same time Cuba F's up everything. Just look at the cigars shipped missing bands. How does that make it through QC? lmao
  5. Please! This is Cuba we’re talking about. This shit happens all the time. I’ve had Petit Royales from FOH show up as Mille Fleurs in the authenticity check when showing a friend how it works. ?
  6. If you’re not slobbering then what humidity are you keeping them at? swelling is from too much moisture(saliva or other kinds lol).
  7. Por Larranaga Montecarlo is a perfect example. SLOOOOW infrequent draws seem to bring out the most flavor.
  8. Regular humidor has an Oasis Two tupperdores - one is boveda packs and the other heartfelt beads. After using beads and boveda packs for years I'd never buy another oasis.
  9. Well technical from my experience desktop humidors even the nice expensive ones are no where near as efficient at maintaining humidity.
  10. Yup I keep cedar trays in one box for the loose cigars the rest are kept in the boxes, plus I reuse some boxes for lose cigars too. Also the cedar sheets from boxes all go in the bottom of my boxes as well.
  11. Unless some how the coronavirus peters out between now and then I doubt there will be a season. If it's anything like the spanish flu it will die down during the summer and explode back up again in the fall/winter.
  12. Get neither. Don’t waste your money on a real humidor. They aren’t worth 2 cents. get one of these and you’ll have to change refresh your Boveda or beads once very couple of years. I use two of the biggest size and use SensorPush sensors. I haven’t refreshed my beads or Boveda packs in a couple years. https://www.containerstore.com/s/storage/plastic-bins-baskets/clear-weathertight-totes/12d?productId=10026213 I have a good regular humidor I’ve had for 30 years for NCs and id never buy one or suggest one to someone again.
  13. I bought a box of Montecristo petit edmundo's about 3 or 4 years ago and they are complete dog poop. I still have half a box left after giving a bunch out and I'm hoping magically they turn from dog crap to diamonds if I ignore them for long enough. LMAO
  14. Ken is totally Tyrion. Haha I’m Jim Halpert and the second match is Leonard hoffsteter also at 79%
  15. wow I thought myself and my buddy were the only ones that were going through this.
  16. It’s a way to take more money from suckers. This is why every new stupid release from them is bigger than 50rg.
  17. I think it’s ridiculously over rated. Bland, boring and too big. I find the Connie 1 to be a far superior cigar at almost half the price. (I was getting boxes for about $165)
  18. To be quite frank with you. Do not smoke non Cubans in the vehicle. They stink it up mighty fierce. I can smoke a Cuban though in the car and get in the next morning and there’s no smell. Also there’s this little green bottle of deodorizer. A drop or two will remove most of the scent. I can’t remember the name of it right now but I’ll post it when I get home.
  19. I heard that too but with heat rising wouldn’t I want the slower burning part up then? Lol
  20. Le Hoyo du Depute is a bit thicker(38rg) but also great.
