    What is the longest time you went unwillingly without a cigar

    Man, that sucks. Feel better. Rest and all that. That is one illness not to mess with.

    La Riqueza

    Newbie selections then? I've considered a bunch of stuff. I'd like to also stay under $5 a stick (or less) since I know a good portion of these will end up snuffed anyway. (Do I need to start a new thread?)

    How long does it take you to choose a cigar?

    My choice is often defined by what I have or have not eaten. Big meals means heftier sticks. Although, I've been finding it odd which cigars sneak up on me. Illusione MKs are supposed to be the strongest of their sticks, but I get a bigger nic hit from the 88. I think it's time to try the f9.

    La Riqueza

    Would this be a good wedding cigar? I need to find two sizes (one PC and one robusto) Thinking two different cigars. There will be regular cigar smokers and first timers there. I don't wanna get people sick, but I want cigars both groups would like. Thanks.

    Vinotemp 101

    Yep, that sounds about right. It's kinda like trying to get an Armadillo out of a hole. The drain is S shaped, and made from flimsy plastic. It appears that they flow the insulation after placing the drain, so you are gonna rip that up getting your wires through. I used a hanger and taped my...

    Vinotemp 101

    If memory serves, it says in the 'Manual' that the unit must be 4 inches off the wall to operate properly.

    Hi, my name is...

    I got caught up in the eBay thing for a short while and was bidding mindlessly, but not as bad as some that were bidding against me. i imagine C-bid is the same.

    New cigar for that Illusione whore

    What? You aren't talking about me? *sniff, sniff* Lanceros are too long for me. I'd be smoking it forever. They look yummy though.

    Hi, my name is...

    Munkey. It's been 117 days since I looked at C-Bid. I've never bought at C-bid, but I hit rock bottom just discovering the site existed. I had a lovely Fiancé who accepted me for who I was. I had a good job. Clean clothes. The dog would be seen in public with me. As you can see, I haven't...

    Downsizing my humi

    I realize this is pretty much the opposite of what we do here, but I will clarify by saying I have a 150 ct. glass top humi which I like, but I can't find a place to put it where I can regulate the temp in my condo. So... I want to get a really nice good quality humi that holds about 25 cigars...

    Leaving sticks in 5 finger bags

    How many of you leave sticks in 5 finger bags for long periods of time (other than Klugs - lol)? I'm curious because I have a growing collection of them in my cooler. I unzip the tops and let the breath, but I don't want to ruin the sticks if leaving them in a bag is going to harm them. Thoughts?

    Problem with wrapper unravelling!

    How long have the sticks been in your humi? The wrapper might be 65, but if the stick is still 70 from the B&M or vendor, it's gonna split when it gets hot as the filler expands even more. I forgot to look where you are, but taking a stick from a warm temp to a cold one abruptly to smoke it can...

    Cabaiguan Guapos

    I didn't mean to imply poor construction, the inside was just not acclimated to the lower RH I have in my humi. The binder didn't tear, just the wrapper. And was able to smoke through it. I can't debate price, I haven't tried enough cigars to know, so I'll take your word for it.

    Cabaiguan Guapos

    Origin: Nicaragua Length: 5 5/8 Ring Gauge: 54 Wrapper: Nicaragua Filler: Nicaragua Torched this lovely stick 8 days after arrival. Clipped a good part of this triple capped head (verging on too much). The pre-light draw almost kept me from lighting this cigar. So good. Toasted the foot and...
