After about 2 months in the humidor, this one is fantastic! One of the best smokes I've had. Pairs nicely with Heineken, but so does everything.

Nice! Rocky Patel only seems to put out great stuff :thumbup:

Great choice @bp2878

At the moment, I'm having a LFD at Burn, The Battery. Top notch ...they have all RP exotics, Fuentes God of fire and others I rarely see etc

We beat the dodgers, today

I just finished refurbishing a 1950s’ vintage Kaywoodie 98B I picked up off Ebay.

I was looking at photos of that place this weekend, looks very nice! Hoping to check it out next month while in Atlanta for a comedy show.

Howdy everyone!
New on the forum, not new to the brown leaf. Have slowed way down on my purchasing and consumption over the past several years, but still have >600 sticks in inventory.

Recently enjoyed this Tat La Verite 2009 church while babysitting some sprinklers in the back yard. Most of my sticks are a bit more pedestrian than this, but holy hell these are smoking great right now.

I feel you - I don’t think I’ve had a cigar in months for the same reason.

Too dark for a picture but I am on my patio, sipping on DeLille, one of my favorite local Washington wines, watching a wild LA vs LAFC MLS game on my laptop, winner to play my Sounders, and smoking an Oliva Ser. V Melanio Churchill that just arrived in the mail today. Sublime.

Glad I found this thread! I have been a cigar smoker for at least 20 years. Two kids under the age of three has put a damper on my smoking free-time, but I still indulge.

Currently in my rotation are the MF Le Bijou 1922 torpedos and the Padron 5000.

The Le Bijou is hands down the best smoke I have ever had. I tried the La Ofretta but didn't care for it as much as the Le Bijou.

In terms of humidors, I gave up trying to get a wooden box to hold moisture in Arizona. We go weeks at a time with RH in the 5-10% range, and in the summer with the air conditioner pulling all the moisture out of the air, forget about it.

I use a large Tupperware container with a humidification puck (add distilled water and PG from time to time) and I keep a hygrometer inside. It always reads about 75% RH, and I open the box fairly often to let fresh air in.

Thought I'd share my first real step towards keeping a collections of cigars.

I've always enjoyed cigars on the golf course, fishing, or just sitting out on the deck, but I've never gone any further than just grabbing a few when I happen to be at the liquor store and stashing them in my golf bag.

I Finally decided to take the leap and order my first humidor (reminds me of when I got my first reel mower), as well as stock up on my favorites which to this day has been ACID 1400cc or Kuba Kuba by Drew Estates. I should admit, I haven't branched out much further than these, but hope to explore some others. I haven't read through this whole thread, and I realize I'm kind of a newbie to this, but I know you guys can steer me in the right direction if I'm off course!

Ordered through Cigars International who had a few deals going. Ended up with:
  • ACID 1400cc
  • ACID Kuba Kuba
  • Acid Infused Sampler (freebie)
  • Pinar del Rio 5-Star Sampler (freebie)
I also ordered a Herf-a-dor travel case for the golf course, and a Humi-Care bead gel humidifier.

Here's my humidor and cigars (**I have the hydrometer out for calibration).

Nice, I like you will be making this step after Christmas, have my eye on a humidor and over the past month or so have been trying a few different stick in an attempt to find a "favorite" to stock up on. I joined a subscription box thing to receive 4 a month and first box should be here in the coming days so that should be fun too.
