    Just finished it up. At 35 a stik, definatley a let down. Classic padron great construction, but weak grey ash and a little unbalanced, especially for a padron. 40/80 definatley better blends.

    Do the humidity beads need to be replaced periodically, or do they just work forever?

    A sick PSD#4.....rare for it to taste this bad....or maybe it was a cold/sore throat that made it worse!

    Regards.

    Thanks. I'm setting up a tupperware humidor and it looks like I'll have to ship in most of the stuff from the US. Do the humidity beads need to be replaced periodically, or do they just work forever?

    ^^should be forever.....i've been running 6+ years and still going strong.

    +1. To get my humidor up to the right temp, I had to re-spray the beads every day or two. But now that it's up to 65%, I only have to spray once every 10 days or 2 weeks. They stay that consistent. Plus bbaquiran, just know that the more full your tupperware is w/ cigars, the easier it'll stay at the right RH. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Got my new humidor! Its a Xikar finished in Mahogany. Seasoning now. [​IMG] Also, smoked a great cigar this evening, an A. Fuente Anejo Reserva No. 48. Tasted like good cognac, cedar and fruit, constructed perfectly, burned evenly and drew phenomenally. I heartily recommend trying one if you come across them.

    Smoking a Gurkha Evil robusto right now. I had given up on Gurkha after trying at least a dozen of their blends and being totally underwhelmed. Bought on of these on a recommendation at my B&M a few weeks back and really enjoyed it, fantastic cigar. Great construction, and incredible taste. Anyone who has eschewed Gurkha forever should give these a try.

    Man you guys are connoisseur's. It is great reading all of your posts describing cigars. I am a Macanudo guy myself. Typically a Hampton Court. My first smoke was a Podrone but I was not a big fan at the time but it looks like I should re-visit is since there are a lot of favorable posts here about them.

    What mild cigar's would you recommend? I wouldn't mind trying some new cigars.

    Rocky Patel Autumn Collection robusto. I guess since it's not autumn anymore, I should not be surprised this cigar sucks so much ass.
