What humidity% do you keep your humidor at? i noticed in the last pic it said 62% but that seems a tad low to me.


not a cigar but i stopped in the "tobacco shop" and some "local" pipe tobacco caught my eye...i think i might have ruined my pipe with it. the crap tasted like a stale swisher sweet mixed with woodchips....

Dunno bout GvilleJeeper, but I try not to go over 65-66%. Any higher and the cigar smokes "wet" IMO.

I have two humidors one keeps my personal stash. In the second box I put a shot glass of flor de cania rum. That suffices when I want a cigar with a little flavor to it. My neighbors rolls his own so I always have that humidor full. That's the advantage of living in Miami .

yes i have had several and never been dissapointed, great flavor. we just finished a box of 25 at my cousins wedding this past weekend.

The problem is that there way to many counterfeit cubans being sold... There are a lot of good cigars being made ( la flor, perdomo, etc) so you really don't need to smoke a Cuban. That's my 2 cents..

You can get Cohibas in the U.S. IDK if they're the same... but you can buy Cohibas here.

Yeah I usually try to keep it around 67%, at the time I took the pic I had just finished adding to my collection so my hygrometer was reading low.

I have found not to be to anal about this though. Anywhere between 60% to 70% especially depending on where you live in the winter time and you will be just fine.

You can buy Cohibas in the states, but they are of the Dominican variety not Cubanos unless you have connections.

There are a number of sites online that you can order from (mostly in Europe) that will ship Cubans to US customers, and the prices aren't that bad all things considered...

Yeah I just have a hard time believing some of those sites are legit. Cuban Cigars, especially Cohibas are the most counterfeited cigars out there. Plus you run the risk Customs gets a hold of them and then your out the money you spent plus you may face a fine.

Buying from a reputable dealer is the first part (you're right, there ARE alot of fakes out there). Knowing what you're buying is an important part of this...buying Cubans just cuz they're Cubans is stupid and a good way to lose money anyhow. If they get ganked at Customs, they just keep em, but I've never heard of them pressing chargers against the receiver. Some places also still guarantee delivery...if they don't arrive for any reason, they send another shipment.

All this being said, and while there are smokes from Cuba that I do enjoy, there are plenty of other smokes out there that IMO are just as good as Cubans, although different.

I totally agree with you, while I do enjoy some Cubans their are just as many great if not better Cigars being produced from the Dominican, Honduras, etc.

Any recommendations on a legit site? I have been looking at dutyfreecubancigars.com they guarantee shipment to the US in original sealed boxes. I have a few connections here at work with some of our guys who travel to Germany and they bring me back a stick or two now and then, but I would like to get my hands on a box of Behikes or TTT Trinidad. I am not worried about the counterfeit as much, as I know what to look for, but I've just always been scared of the whole Customs deal.
