    Taboo LR Havana Figurado

    I picked up a sampler that included the three different wrappers of the new Limited Reserve line from Taboo Cigars -- Connecticut, Havana, and Maduro -- all in the unusual figurado shape. Today I decided to light up the Havana and give it a whirl. The appearance of the cigar is pretty good...

    I Hate Hygrometers

    After fighting with my desktop humidors I finally bought a fridgador and thought I had everything stabilized until my humidity levels went all wonky. First I replaced the battery in my Heartfelt and bought a new HygroSet from Town & Country. Then I salt tested my two digital hygros as well as...

    I'm officially loving the fridgador

    Last week in the "Show pics of your humi" thread I posted a picture of my new EdgeStar 28 bottle wine cooler. Since then I've really come to appreciate this little bugger. I was always fighting with my humidors to keep them stabilized and I never cared for using a cooler as it had to sit out...

    Cigars & Camping

    Last week I mentioned in footbag's thread here that I was also heading out camping and that while I was packing up my goodies for the trip my wife walked by and said that she wanted me to bring her some cigars to try as well. She said she wanted something mild but I knew she would...

    Can't get humidity high enough

    At the end of the summer I decided to move some of my stogies out of the cooler and into a new 100-ct cedar-lined humidor. I seasoned it, added the cigars straight from the 65% coolerdor, added about a third of a pound of beads and figured I was set. The problem is that the thing never gets...

    The day after a good smoke

    I've noticed that the day after I smoke a cigar my nose will sometimes still catch the scent of it now and then. I don't know if it's really a case of smelling smoke particles still trapped in the schnoz or just a brain misfire caused by overloaded olfactory sensors from the night before. It's...

    Don Kiki Red

    The small desktop humidor I bought from Cuban Crafters came with a bundle of red and green Don Kikis. I never felt any inclination to try them out so they just sat around in my cooler. I decided to grab a handful to take camping this past weekend to pass around the old campfire. While they...

    I finally got to smoke in the house

    My wife is out of town this week so I decided to surprise her by completely remodeling the master bathroom. We're talking a total tear-down to the studs. Last night as I was gearing up to destroy I realized that there would never be a better time to light up in the house. The wife was gone...

    An perfectly odd night

    Last night I stepped outside at around 11:30 to smoke the last of my ISOMs (sob). It was a very hot day so temps were still in the mid 70s which is a pretty warm night for the NW. I sat out front so the smoke wouldn't waft into the kid's rooms. No sooner had I lit up when I saw two pairs of...

    What a way to end a vacation

    One week ago I set off on an Alaskan cruise with my family. The trip started off pretty bad from a cigar standpoint as I forgot to pack the stogies I had set aside for the ship. I figured what the heck, I'll just pick up a few at the on board duty free shop to hold me over. They stocked a few...

    You people have ruined me...

    I've smoked the occasional cigar for about the past 10 years and recently decided to pick up a small humidor so I would always have a few good smokes readily at hand. I started checking out the various online vendors for cheapo cigar and humi bundles and was all set to go that route until I...
