Stupid Question - The Acid 1400cc comes in glass tubes. Do I remove them from the tubes when I put them in the humidor?

Also is there any particular way to store them inside the humidor? just kind of stack them in there however I want?

My thought process is always, "well I'm already paying for shipping so I might as well buy more"

It's a nice one, paw in law said he wants to get himself one now after getting me this one.
I need to calibrate the meter and season this thing so I can fill it.

from things remember for an astonishing $4.06
It was marked at $15 and they took 75% off of that.

Found this 15+ year old Montecristo #2 in the back of the humidor, so I smoked it as my first cigar of 2020.

I think it fell into my bag in Canada at some point on a a work trip years ago, and I just never got around to smoking it. It was very tasty!

Some good links I've found over the last few months:

Price History Site for CBid:
http://sloppymcnubble.com/cbid/index.php

Interesting long read on plume (spoiler: it's not a thing and anything that looks like 'it' is either bacteria or mold as far as FOH has found. It has been brought up that if you don't know what to test for (chemical or compound of plume), then you can't really find it):
https://www.friendsofhabanos.com/forum/ ... uld-study/

For those looking for some cheaper sticks, I've had good luck with:
- Ramon Bueso Genesis The Project Robusto
- Brick House Maduro Robusto
- Legends by Rocky Patel
- Foundry Chillin' Moose Corona

And really only have been disappointed by 'Punch Rare Corojo'. One dimension and a mediocre to bad dimension at that.

@smurg , have you been able to get the sloppymcnubble site to provide pricing for auctions post-2014? The latest prices I see are from 2014. Am I doing it wrong?

I smoked a 5 Vegas Gold the other day. It was so mild I had to check to make sure it was lit a few times, as I really couldn't taste anything...

I have a buddy who loves mild smokes, will probably give the remaining 4 from the 5 pack I picked up.
