I met one of the owners of Oliva cigars. He gave some sticks to try. They were really good definitely going to pick up some more.

Hrm, notables I've had recently...Camacho Liberty '11. Great smoke. Had a Liga Privada Feral Pig last night...it was outstanding, almost as good as the LP Flying Pig #9 which was one of my absolute fav's.

I'll smoke just about anything as long as it's hand rolled with long filler and anything but a candela wrapper.

Real name: Ken

You can debate all day long about where the name "Jeep" came from but the simple truth is, all the really good four letter words were already taken.

Get it now if you want it...the shops around me are limiting sales to 1 or 3 max per customer because they're so limited. Not a cheap stick, around $15-17...I wouldn't buy it daily, but it was worth it once for sure.

Just enjoyed a Macanudo Maduro Vintage 1997 the other day while walking around downtown Denver. I must say, it was one of the finer smokes I have had in a long time. Highly recommended!

I'm really not a fan o f Macanudo in general...but that one's a pretty damn good smoke.

I noticed earlier in the thread that someone had posted about their humidor being forgotten and let the humidity drop. I am in a similar situation:
My wife bought the humidor for me for our first anniversary. It was an awesome gesture, and I truly love the woman for it. However, she bought it at a store that specializes in engraving items. Ya know, they sell everything from wrist watches to plaques. So I know it's not a "top of the line" box.
Problem is, I can not keep the humidity where I would like it. I treated it following the manufacturers instructions and the hygrometer (el cheapo to say the least) was reading 60%-70%. Cool!
gave it a week, and it dropped into the 30's and I panicked. Gave them some TLC and brought 'em back nice and slow. Again 60%-70%.
Now, I cant keep that range for more than a few days. My question is this: Is it worth it to try to rehab the box (new hygrometer etc.) and hope for the best? OR, should I look into a good humidor scrap the one I have now? I hate the thought of that, mainly because it would devastate my wife if she knew the one she got me was junk...

Been there dude. You may be able to salvage it. Most likely, it doesn't have a good seal and is simply loosing the humidity through a gap in the lid. I put a thin coat of silicon around the lip (keeping the cigars in tupperware until it was very cured and has no more odor at all). What do you use for humidification?

I use distilled water in the humidifiers that came with it:


This is my typical setup:



Your comment about the silicon got me thinking. I took a close look at the lid seal and all joints in the wood inside. There seems to be a minute (yet important) gap in a number of places. I will certainly try sealing it up tighter and report back. Thanks CRider!

Cool, hope it helps! Those humidifiers prolly have the cheap green foam in em...they can mold over time which can obviously create problems. Gel/beads can do a lot better job over the long run. If you're not sure where to get em, send me a PM with your snailer and I can help ya out maybe.
