  1. Food, Wine, & Spirits Forum
    Hi everyone, I thought I'd throw something somewhat different from the posts out there. So, we all have dream objects like the dream house, the dream car, the dream spouse, but what is your dream bar like? What nectar's would you want? How big would you want your variety to be, or how small...

    Hi everyone, I thought I'd throw something somewhat different from the posts out there. So, we all have dream objects like the dream house, the dream car, the dream spouse, but what is your dream humidor collection? What cigars would you want? How big would you want your variety to be, or...
  3. Habanos Discussion
    OK so in my travels back through the archives and my desire to start truly aging some cc's, I wanted to ask everyone what is your prefered RH setting for long term storage. I also am curious if your prefered smoking RH varies from your LT storage RH. I know some like to dry box so some may...

    Hey everyone, I'm just curious...if you could choose the exact conditions outside what would your ideal be for smoking? I was having an Illusione Epernay outside here in central NY last night and it was just about perfect. I like it on the cooler side but not cold. It was in the mid-60s with...
  5. General Pipe Forum
    So I've got the wine cooler humidor for my cigar stash and it got me thinking. If the mid 60's is ideal for cigars, is it the same for pipe baccy? Would it be a bad thing if I stuck my mason jars in the bottom shelf of the winodor? I just recently broke down and jarred all my open tins, so I'm...

    I'm closing in on the top of my "150" count display humi, and I've got a 50 ct ready to go as a back up, but it's only a matter of time before I need a much bigger storage solution. I'd been searching for a nice humi to use, or even a second Display humi, but I've been feeling particularly...
  7. General Cigar Discussion
    I have been smoking for all of three months, and already I am gravitating towards the heavy stuff, my current favorite being La Flor Dominicana's Ligero 500 Cabinet Oscuro (60x5 3/4). But I'm not always in the mood for a real powerhouse. The first cigar I ever enjoyed was a Connecticut shade, a...
  8. General Cigar Discussion
    This is a question related to cigars but more about personal taste and association. When someone says "sports car" something different pops into everyone's heads ... someone might think Corvette while I think Porsche Speedster. That said, I'm curious to see what images everyone constructs...
  9. General Pipe Forum
    I tend to buy pipes with large bowls and when filled with flake it seems to take forever to smoke them and it expands above the rim when I light it. What should I be looking for in the way of an ideal flake pipe? Any recommendations? I'd like to keep it under $300. What pipe do you use for...
  10. Habanos Discussion
    was looking for opinions on this? right now my humidor is at 65 C and 54-51% humidity. I wanna up the humidity using heartfelt beads but I cant seem to get the hydrometer to change. They are 65% humidity beads Is 50ish humidity okay? -Rick.
  11. General Cigar Discussion
    I believe a thread like that has been done at one point or another but I cant find it plus new people = new places so I thought I would ask the question again. What is your ideal setting, location or scenery for smoking a cigar realistic but ideal in your opinion? for me it would be a place in...
  12. Cigar Accessory Questions
    Hola, When I close the lid on my big new humidor, I'm at 74ish% RH. That's a bit muggier than I like, so I tend to open the top to let it stabilize a bit back down to 70. But for the hell of it, I took out my digital hygrometer and threw it on the kitchen table and what do ya know, it's 67%...

    After trying a few cigars for a morning smoke I have decided that the Taboo African Cameroon is my perfect morning smoke. What a great tasty mild smoke to start off the day. Combine that with a cup of coffee, vacation day, no homework to worry about, the Red Sox in first place, and life is...
  14. General Cigar Discussion
    Ok...for me smoking is very relaxing. I find that I really want to kick my shoes off and hang out with a smoke. Im a barefoot, t-shirt, shorts, slouch in the chair, kind of person. My ideal cigar moment (for relaxing purposes) is a nice sized stog...some coffee (from Teekeladude and...

    I have a small 20ct desktop humidor and I plan on purchasing a large cooler soon. I'm going to order a 1/2 pound of beads from Viper but not sure if I should get the 65% or the 70% beads. He said it's a matter of preference and I'm not experienced enough to have an opinion. I also want to know...
  16. Coffee Discussion
    Not sure this has been asked before, and appreciate if you can point to a link or your own experience regarding the following: 1. Are there any ideal RH and Temperature you can reccomend for storage of green coffee beans? 2. Do they (green beans) require age similar to cigars or wine or should...
