Perlas (1/5)

  1. Stogies or casa de monticristo. Casa is across the freeway from the galleria and stogies is about 2 miles away.
  2. I found that Fuente was a fairly popular fake in the Dominican on my past trip this summer. I saw several boxes of fake Opus, Angels Share and Don Carlos Eye of the Sharks. To no surprise, these locations also had bad fakes of Cubans (jars of Behikes, etc). I find anywhere thats a tourist destination, people will prey on the unaware to make a buck.
  3. Davidoff only has a members lounge to smoke in. Casa de Monticristo is about a half mile away from there and normally has a great selection and lots of seating. This is my normal cigar spot. Stogies has a good lounge, but the smokes can be hit or miss, just depends on what you’re looking for. The heights cigar bar was just an old cigar bar that didn’t do much for me. The selection was pretty bad and there was not a lot of seating, so I walked out. I have not been to any of the Woodlands locations, but have heard great things.
  4. I’m now looking at getting one of these and wanted to get an update from those that have them. Are you still happy with them or would you go a different route now. I have also considered modifying a large wine fridge or having a custom cabinet built, but just came across a group selling the Reagan for a great price.
  5. I have a temp controlled unit that I have been experimenting with this for the past 2 months. I had an issue with too much humidity at the bottom and not enough at the top. So I placed two usb powerd fans at the rear, behind the shelves to blow upwards. I originally tried to run them on a timer for 5 min every hour, but that didn’t do the job, so now they run full time. So far I have noticed zero heat difference between top, middle and bottom, but the humidity has stabilized across the board. Cigars still smoke just fine. All loose sticks are in the bottom two drawers and all boxes the rest of the way up.
  6. Hello! I figured it was time to introduce myself. I've been a cigar smoker for about 13 years on and off. Was heavily into it for the first 4 years and then fell off until 2016. I used to smoke mostly non-cc, but now I smoke mostly Cubans. This site was a great resource for my trip to Cuba last year and I’m already planning my next trip when travel opens back up. Something about walking around and smoking while in Cuba that I can’t get enough of! Quarantine has played heck on my cigar consumption.... good thing for relaxing, bad thing for the pocket. I have already had to build a second wineador and about have that one full now as well. Next will be something much larger so that I can start aging more stock. Thanks for having such a great site and I’m looking forward to learning a lot along the way. Completely hooked to the 24:24!!!
