Just thought I would start one of these for us who smoke cigars or both pipes and cigars.

Good morning all. Started the morning with a cabaguan petite and right now I am smoking a Don Pepin black label(cuban classic) robusto both with starbuck's guatemala.

Yipee! A cigar thread. Had a Indian Tobac Robusto this morning on my way to work. Got stuck in a meeting most of the morning and doesn't look like I'll get to smoke any more until this evening.

Mike I also enjoy the Hemingway series, I'm real fond of the "short story" just right when one's pressed for time and the taste is amazing.....

Just finished a Tatuaje gran cojuno, I was only able to smoke 2 cigars today and after lunch I smoked a San Cristobal francisco. Two great cigars that I would highly recomend to all.

Stopped off at the local cigar shop last night after having a great dinner at the new Irish Pub and restaurant that just opened up down the street and bought a couple Arturo Fuentes Hemingway's (my favorite of late) and was very disappointed with the smoke. Cigar seemed a little dry, burned unevenly and had a really hard draw confused . Hope the other one isn't the same as they both came from the same box.

Had me a La Paloma candela last night. Over 8 inches long and probably a 60 gauge.

Not the most pleasant cigar I ever had, but it was gifted to me by a good friend from another forum I lost touch with. I can't wait to smoke the other one! What a Face

Rolys maduro. A survivor of a beetle hatching. My ac is not working and the house was in the 90s yesterday; I'm praying no beetles hatch this time.

Sure like to mow the parks later today and smoke a cigar. If I could, it would probably be a Perdomo from one of their fresh rolled wheel packages I have had stashed. But winds are supposed to be gusting into the 40mph range. Maybe if I can find a quiet place.

Can't you just freeze everything, which would kill any beetles, and any larvae that are laying dormant?

Got a new Baki gourd calabash and fired it up with GLP Blackpoint. A cool delicious smoke. Very Happy

I heard the same thing. I too am curious if that would work if left in for a day or two and then thawed out and put back in the humidor after it has been purged of the beetles.

Yes, as far as I know.

Here's what I've read, and what I do whenever I get a new purchase that I'm chucking in my humidor:

Seal the smokes in freezer bags, two if you're concerned about freezer burn.
Place in fridge for 24 hours
Place in freezer for 48 hours. I should mention that lots of people do it for closer to three or four days.
Place in fridge for 24 hours
Remove from bag[s]
Place in humi for a week minimum, to rehumidify and get them back to a stable state.

I don't actually do the fridge part. My parents would be pretty pissed if they went to make a sandwich and found a bag of cigars in their fridge. I also freeze them at a friend's place...for the same reason. Razz

As far as I know, that is the best way to do it, and then keep your temperature below 70 F and your RH below 70%. That should stop anything from hatching. Easy to do up here, but a hell of a lot harder in Arizona I'd think...

P.S. I just finished an Ashton VSG lonsdale.

Got the (rare for me) itch for a cigar thsi morning, and satisfied it with a Rocky Patel 'Connecticut' torpedo in the garden. Mild, mild, mild, and then a little sweet and complex at the end. Got inside right as the rain really picked up.

I have been on a long panatela kick lately. They seem to be a nice even burning smoke and that seems to hold its taste throughout the smoke. I am finding that this particular shape (to me anyway) allows you to taste more of the wrapper along with the filler. I ended up buying a box of Nestor Miranda Collection Special Selection Lanceros with a Rosado wrapper. They are 7.5" by 40. Ended up smoking one of them today along with a Oliva Series V Lancero. Both were very good along with making for a very enjoyable.

My first cigar of the evening was a 2006 God of Fire robusto, as with most high end fuentes a great cigar but have had better cigars for less than $10. I thought it would have had more flavor and body as when I finished it, it left me imediately wanting another cigar to smoke. So I went for a La Riquesa #2. This cigar hits the spot every time, full of rich dark cocoa and espresso and a long complex finish with just enough of spice.

A Drew Estates Hecto A Mano Tabak Especial Toro Negra. If you like a coffee infused type cigar with just a suttle taste of coffee, chocolate and spices this cigar is great IMHO. Medium bodied and held its taste and strength throughout the whole smoke. Very nice, I might look into getting some of these as this one was given to me by a fellow co-worker.

Just finished a nice Acid Blondie from Drew Estate. It's good for a flavored cigar IMHO.
