  1. Cigar Accessory Questions
    Hey all, new member but have been a smoker for many years. I don't smoke frequently. I try to make time whenever I can but it's random and I usually smoke when riding on the golf course. I'd say I smoke 4-5 cigars per month. As much as I like my local b&m shops, buying online saves me $$ and I...

    Lack of space forces me to put some of my smokes into long term freezer storage. I seal all my smokes in ziploc baggies so no moisture can escape. I really have not noticed any taste differences between ones fresh out of the freezer and ones that have been in my humidor a while. Does anyone else...

    So as some of you may know I am in the army and stationed in Germany. I am getting moved back to the states after 3 years here in Nov. I have amassed a cigar collection to big to bring in my luggage and im scared to ship that many cigars( 250-300 ). I was wondering if anyone knew a good way to...
  4. Cigar Questions
    I am new to these forums and fairly new to this hobby in general. Recently I had an experience with "the devil site" in which I accidentally won a lot more cigars than I expected. This is a problem because I currently only own a 20-cigar humidor, and I have about 40 cigars coming in. I did...

    I finally got a little cash so I picked up a few cigars. They where 70% off, usually $10 each I got two of them at $3.00 a piece. I plan on setting up a cheap coolidor here in a few weeks. I ordered some humidifier crystals for about 10 bucks, and found an old cooler with some shelves I can use...

    My buddy is getting ready to go back to Thailand tomorrow morning, so I was thinking about getting him a farewell gift. I want to send him off with some decent cigars and a travel humi (Cigar Caddy). Now, he will be gone for an extended period of time (+1yr). I would get him a small regular...

    This cigar has all the most annoying aspects covered: it burns hot, quick, and uneven. I find the smoking time comparisons to be totally exagerated... Read the full review here: Nub Cameroon 460 Cigar Review - Finger Burner in the Worst Sense of the Term
  9. General Cigar Discussion
    Here's a stupid question: Can you stick a bunch of cigars into jars and seal them up for long term storage? I don't smoke many cigars these days mostly because I don't live near a cigar store anymore. I'm limited to cheap stuff my local ciggy store sells. Now and then I make a trip into the...
  10. Cigar Questions
    Probably a dumb question, but this thought just came to me when going through my coolador. I have a number of boxes in there, as well as loose sticks. The cigars inside the boxes should be just fine, of course. But since the actual boxes are probably made of various woods, some are lacquered...
  11. General Pipe Forum
    This may be stupid, but I've heard not to put pipe tobacco in the humidor with my cigars AND that humidity isnt as big of a deal with pipe tobacco. So I've got 1/2 different sampler sizes and I need to store them in something! Can I use a tupperware or similar OR do I need a seperate humidor...
  12. Cigar Questions
    I usually only buy a few cigars at a time, but I might not smoke them for several weeks after i buy them. I have a small case that's lined with cedar, but, as I learned when I had a few really dry cigars, it doesn't necessarily keep them fresh. So... what if I just a damp rag in the bottom of...

    Hey Guys, I had a question that i've been wondering about for a while now. For long term storage 1-3 years...are the macbaren plastic 1 lb canisters any good? Or should i Mason it? I'd appreciate your thoughts...
  14. General Cigar Discussion
    I have searched and searched for how the term got started, and I could not find any true definition that was documented. I found stories about gathering to smoke cigars and listening to Herf Alpert. His name was Herb not Herf. I found stories about Cultural terms such as: The Greek derivation...

    Whats the best way to go about storing some sticks for a while, and by while I mean 18 years?
  16. General Cigar Discussion
    from the cigar diary I was the first ever on the Net to use the term "dog rocket" regarding a cigar. In fact, it is part and parcel of the MOTT rating system. You will not find it in the FAQ because my name has been banished from it - including the parts that I authored. However, I can not...

    I posted this on another forum, but thought I would put it up here as well to see if I can get some more opinions. Hope no one minds: _________________________________________ Alright, I am gettin ready to do some MAJOR stocking up of bulk tobacco's for short & long term aging. I'm looking at...
  18. General Cigar Discussion
    There is much talk on how and why to seal ones boxes but few ideas on when. Of course the general belief is we should seal them to attmept to slow the aging process - but when to begin the process of slowing. Should I seal them once they have settled into there ideal RH i.e a couple months...

    I was as Target today and they make them pretty darn lardge. Has anyone used one with beads and if so is the seal tight enought. I know many have used the large coolers with great luck but these seem a bit cheaper and larger. I would be keeping it in the basement so not to worry of it getting...
  20. Cigar Accessory Questions
    Trying to find the data to support this claim...but I seem to remeber a study that involved cigar aging. Basically it stated that a cigar to be aged long term (20+) It would be a superior method to leave them in an airtight sealed container. Cigars on the short term 0-10 years, aged better and...
