    I'm looking for a digital Hygrometer for my 20 count humidor. Space is obviously an issue. Should i even mess with the digital, or just get a new analog one? Where can i get one, cheap?

    Mood, Emotions, and Cigars...

    Beads, Noob, Hygro...oh my...

    So I've got a 20 count humidor. I keep 15-18 sticks in the box, most of the time. I was using a puck with gel in it, but got mold. I switched to beads (Cigar Mechanic is the Brand). All the while, my analog Hygro hovers close to 60%. I salt test it, and it appears to be 5% low, meaning the...

    Cuesta-Rey? Any Lovers?

    I haven't heard much around these boards about Cuesta-Rey...But there is somewhat of a cult following near me. I've got two local B&M's that are totally in love with them. I've got a "Centro Fino Sungrown" and an "8-9-8" in the humi, and I'm very ready to try them. They smell great, look...

    Club Stogie...dang it...

    So, I just placed my first online order for cigars. With all the positive stuff I've heard about Rob and Taboo, i thought that would be a good place to start. So far, I've been able to avoid "The Devil Site" but i fear that won't be long away... Oh, and my order from Rob, actually exceeds my...

    Gispert...What is the story???

    So I've looked around for info on "Gispert Cigars" and found none. Back when i first started smoking, they were recommended to me. Well, I found them in the back of a B&M yesterday, and bought two. Red Label, says "Fibraca de Tobaccos" on it. Looks light, could be Connecticut? They are huge...

    Cigar Dossier...Do you have one?

    So, when i started smoking just months ago, I decided I was going to save every single cigar band I ever smoked. Seems Crazy, and most of my friends thought so. But I have been, and now have several pages of bands. I find it is a really great way to remember what I've smoked. I've seen leather...
