Cigar Terms
B&M = Brick and Mortar – physical store to purchase tobacco in
BOMB = unsolicited gift (short answer)
BOTL = Brother of the Leaf
CA = Cigar Aficionado
Cab = Cabinet...wooden sliding top box containing 50 sticks...
Dry box = Putting cigars you intend to smoke in the near future in a box (typically a desktop humidor) to lower their RH (dry them out a bit). Some here (me) prefer to smoke many Cuban cigars at a lower RH than they typically store them at. You can do it randomly, relying on the lower ambient RH in your room or as I do with 60% RH beads in the humidor.
