    I just got 27 nice cigars and want to know if removing the cello will cause the cigars to loose their flavor but I want the cedar to mix with it.

    It's not uncommon for my to go have a cigar after work before I go see my girlfriend, only problem is she hates that stinky cigar smoke smell that gets trapped into im clothes. Ive tried bring an extra set but it normally gets stuck on my boots, jean, skin, and sometimes even my phone. The extra...

    I was preparing my cooler in anticipation of my Spanish cedar trays arriving on the next mail plane when I realized that I had only scented bleach. So I got to digging through my cleaning supplies, then had an idea... distilled vinegar. My mom used to use distilled vinegar to clean her floors...

    Just had a bowl of Jack Knife plug that tasted like Ennerdale Flake. You can pretty much guess the rest of the story. Now is there any hope for this cob outside of just dedicating it to lakeland blends hence forward?

    OK.... My neighbor and only local cigar buddy.. bought a used Humidor. It smelled fine before seasoning, it smelled fine after seasoning. Now that his sticks have been in there over a month they all smell like Chocolate! :hmm: So far it hasn't affected the taste but he's worried it will so...

    i noticed almost all cigars come in a plastic cigar sleeve. do you remove it before you put it in your humidor? seems like humidity would never reach the cigar if its in the plastic sleeve..or am i wrong..

    I just purchased some CAO Sopranos via the cigar international and they came in 3's wrapped in plastic, my question is should I remove the plastic if I am storing them in a humidor?

    Could you please remove the autostart/autoloading video from bottom of most of the screens. Seems like it has been bogging down my slower connection. Maybe make it a screenshot with a play button and won't load/start until pressed?

    I assume this has been covered but I have been unable to find anything in previous posts... I apologize if this is a topic that has been beat to death but I only recently bought some boxes that have the cigars in cello. Some books I've read say remove it. Fellow smokers seem mixed on the...

    I have tried a number of way including waiting till the cigar is good and heated and I can almost never get them to come off cleanly. They seem to really damage the wrapper when I take them off. Do they use super glue?

    So it seems common knowledge that newer cigars can sometimes give off an ammonia scent. This smells and tastes bad and detracts from the cigar's experience. But it also seems that cigars, being absorbant as they are, will continue to reabsorb ammonia if they are kept in closed air, as they...

    After trying most everything I could figure out to get the oxidation off the bit and stem of my estate pipe, I tried using oxygenated shoe cleaner. Strangely enough, this worked really well. After soaking the bit for a while in the cleaner, you could see it turn brown and nasty. I guess if you...

    I am a new owner of my first humidor and I have a basic question. When receiving cigars that are in plastic wrap, do I place them in the humidor with the plastic, or do I remove the plastic? Sorry for the stupid question.

    Hey everybody; I've been wanting to give pipe smoking a try and Bleedingshrimp told me about the pipe forum on CS, so here I am :) I picked up a cheap briar pipe (Dr. Grabow) and some tobacco, matches, and other stuff, and based on what I've read on here, I'd like to try smoking without the...

    Just a suggestion, Remove search word size limitations or rather put them to 3-15 instead of 4-17. It puts a damper on wanting to use the search tool. I would also suggesting dropping the wait time down to more like 20 seconds. Neither of these should noticibly effect performance but both will...

    I did a search and couldn't find what I was looking for, so here it is. I recently bought a box of Perdomo ESV 91' Nobleza Tubos. The sticks come in nice aluminum tubes. There is no humidification element in the tubes, like you find in the end of most of the glass tubes. My question -...
  17. Cigar Questions
    I tried using the search function with very little results. My question is, is it better to remove both the ribbon and wax papers found in cab sized boxes (such as the various cohiba siglo/robusto's) or to leave them as is for long term storage? The reason I ask, is i'm afraid that the ribbon...

    i was faced with this dilemna when i got my first humidor. someone told me that if they're gonna be smoked within the next month or so that it didnt matter (which seemed crazy to me because seasoned smokers keep thiers for years on end...d'uh!) and if not that they should be kept on...whatever...

    Hey, I've seen a lot pics of nice boxes of Fuente cigars latley, noticed that some of the pics are of sealed boxes. I remove the humi pack from new boxes, I dont want to over humidify, and I dont want to age my smokes with a dried up humi pack. Whats others thoughts on this, I just come from...

    I just got my new humidor a few hours ago :) its a great looking box and seems to have a good seal. The smell is the most amazing part- the cedar just smells so good I can't believe it. Anyway enough about my new humidor lol I was wondering how to get the hygrometer out to salt test it. It is...
