Nice.... Seeing some good cigars being smoked this week.
That Padron is a very good cigar.

I got this for either tonight or tomorrow after dinner.

Anyone tried Half Pipe Cigars? They are rolled with half pipe tobacco mixed in. They are $3 each and come sealed in a wrapper that doesn’t require a humidor. They’re only available from Cigars International.

They’re a great cigar and easy to take with you.

No. I don’t think that’d be my cup of tea.

I never liked the idea of stuffing a cigar with weed either. 🤷‍♂️ I guess I’m a purist.

Flew to the bay for my nieces 2nd birthday. Had some extra time so I found a little cigar bar in Livermore. Not the best I’ve been to but overall a cool environment.

Trying a “Long live the king” at home tonight. Haven’t had one in a year or so. Solid stick.

Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever been disappointed with a Fuente...

After 30 years of using desk boxes, I just bought a small humidifier. Fired it up last night and loaded it today.

Nothing real fancy and the sticks are pretty typical - Padrons, Avos, Rocky’s, etc. Pretty stoked none the less.

Nice decision. I do the same and I think they are fresher. I really like the constant temperature aspect.

Those are good numbers that’s right where I have mine. Mine has a water tray but I never use it anymore. The two times I thought I’d try it I ended up with a little bit of mold. Mine keeps them perfect without any water.
