A lot of my smokes lately have been at festivals or while walking the dog, so Ive been sticking with a lot of Cusano level sticks. Took advantage of the first cool, non-thunder storm nights this evening to light up an LFD Double Ligero on the back porch with some good bourbon and my acoustic while the wife's working. About as strong as I'd remembered them, but much better flavor than I wa expecting. Probably not the stick I'd usually reach for while hanging out and messing around with the guitar, but really enjoyable none the less.

2 questions for those of you who know a lot more about the up to date cigar technology


1. I think I have tobacco beatles - little holes on most of my cigars, one or two, perfectly round holes on each. I am guessing nothing I can do but toss out the cigars and clean my humidor, right? no idea how I got the motherfuckers.

2. I have always had a hell of a time keeping my cigars humidified, mostly because of my traveling. a friend suggested a small appliance that sits in the humidor and humidifies, measuring the humidity and then blowing out moisture as needed. do these work? will it help me, if I can only fill it up every 3 weeks or so?

I think one of my cigars shrunk.

Is this possible? I have kept it in a plastic bag with a humidi pack for about 2 weeks. When I roll it between my fingers, without applying pressure, I hear popping.

Have you thought about the small, pre-packaged humidifying envelopes like Boveda? It humidifies and when necessary, draws excess humidity out of your humidor. However, beetles would seem to me to be more a problem related to temperature, and not humidity. Do you keep your humidor in a place where the temperature is relatively stable?

To be honest I like Comacho Corojo's.  They are my favorite cigar for around 7-11 dollars u.s. american.

I have to try those envelopes.

thanks - would an encrease in temperature or a decrease trigger the beatles? I thought it was just an issue of exposure, and I couldn't think how I could have gotten the beattles, I haven't added a new cigar to the humidor in months. the weather in chicago has shot up, so the temperature of my humidor has shot up in the past month, I am not sure what else could have happened
