Guys, I hope that this doesn't sound like too much of a newb question since I've been enjoying cigars for 10-15 years, not as frequently as some of you but enough that I keep a fairly well stocked humidor.

Has anyone ever tried the sample offers that you find in the back of men's magazines? These would be from the mail-order sellers that will send you one each of a variety of name brands at a low cost, say 6 for $10. Sometimes they throw in a travel humidor or something.

Are these best avoided, e.g., is what they send you not a full-sized cigar, or a second, or some other form of rip-off?

Thanks in advance.

They're ripoffs IMO. A great way to dump their crap.

Basically a general rule of thumb for all ads in the back of a magazine.

Had a big pour of ER17 and a Davidoff Gran Cru 1 last night at my local cigar bar.

Davidoff makes some of the best cigars, I had 80th anniversary Davidoff cuban cigar a few years back. I shouldn't have been drinking that night because I would still own that cigar. http://blogs.wsj.com/scene/2010/10/2...-inhale-taste/ funny article about smoking in HK, i am surprised they don't' mention the Peninsula hotel's cigar lounge. Here you will see my friend passed out while smoking a Hoyo de Monterrey double corona

That would be a nice cigar to own. The replacement cost for one of those is around $850. Hope you enjoyed it!

Really enjoying my Montecristo Puritos lately.

So far haven't had a really bad one.
And they are known to be inconstant.

It was a gift from another drunk friend, you know what happens when you play poker at someone's house that wants to show off and then i forced to break-em out. I haven't looked into the price of them because I really didn't want to know how much money I wasted by smoking that cigar.

It tasted like a cross between a No3 with the oaky/chocolate flavor of cubans have and hint of spice. That's really all i remember from that night.

Where you're with friends things happen.

I am just getting tired of second guessing whether or not my hygrometer is calibrated properly, whether or not the Xikar PG solution I am using imparts anything undesirable to the cigars in my humidor, and running out of storage space. Less expensive solution would be to get a locker at my B&M I guess but that's no fun.

Had an AB Prensado last night. Very good cigar, and I actually think I prefer these to the Tempuss, but just.

Two things: Have you considered getting Oasis Humi (small electric fully auto humi)? I have it and it works fine it keeps precise humidity at all times. Needs to be checked or refilled with water once a month. Second, I saw these electric wine-coolers being sold as humidors before. Granted the one you looking at is lined with (wood ,per mfct. own description) and has water reservoir(does it mean humidifier?). However I saw smaller, table top coolers for under $150.00 ...How much is the cost of that pseudo-German thing? Wow, I just answered one of my questions: The cost of humidor from Liebherr is $2500.00, yes that is right,lol. And that wine-cooler is not even equipped with active humidifier. They offer you a "water reservoir" instead = plastic crate at the bottom inside which you can pour 1L of water and hope for the best. This should be on SNL, under "Seriously?, Seriously??" rubric.

yeah. that is ridiculous. even if you wanted active humidification, an oasis is what, around $100, plus a regular wine fridge is $200 shipped if you look in the right places. i bought cedar shelves and drawers for $120 shipped. i didn't go the active route, just beads, but 2lbs + fridge + shelves was under $350. gnatty, i have this hygrometer. i bought an extra sensor unit. one is in my desktop and the other in my fridge. they work perfect. both units are +- 1% humidity and .5F when right next to each other.

No, I haven't, but have read bad reviews about these burning out and just generally being unreliable. Maybe they've improved in the last couple of years? What size humidor does this require, or do you use a cooler?

Found it here for around $2,600.

Well, not quite. This is from their website, doesn't sound like a "plastic crate at the bottom inside which you can poor 1L of water and hope for the best"

Liebherr's unique MagicEye control system allows individual settings for humidity and
temperature thanks to three different control circuits with four fans. Ideal humidity, depending
on owner preference and the type of cigar is between 68% and 75%. The humidity control
works with an integrated water tank filled with distilled water. Sensors regulate the water
requirements and a visual display alerts the user when the water needs replenishing. The
touch control system also allows the humidor to respond to a change within minutes. If the
conditions change by opening the door, the unit readjusts as soon as the door is closed
again. In addition, an automatic alarm prevents the door from being inadvertently left open
too long.
