    How was the reserve? I also love boradleaf.

    It was fantastic, a lot better than the habano. Great5 dollar cigar.

    I also had a few Jaime Garica Especial reservas, WOW. If you like the T52, you'll love this. Gorgeous dark conneticut broadleaf wrapper, perfect white ash. This is one of my favorites, and they're a lot cheaper

    [​IMG] My stash for Memorial Day Weekend at the shore house. From left to right weve got: Jaime Garcia: awsome cigar, most of the guys on here will love these. Nosotros by Illusione: A little light for me, but most illusiones are. The larger ring gauge ones are usually better in my experience. 7 20 4: Great cigar, very well made, gorgeous wrapper. AF Anejo Shark: Havent smoked a shark yet, got this from B because his Red Wings lost, looking forward to it. Ambos Mundos (By PJ): have a few of them in there, havent tried any yet. Cabaiguan Guopos Maduro: got a box from CI for like 90 bucks after I bought a 5 pack from NHC for like 50 (oops). Still one of my favorite cigars. I love the broadleaf maduro wrapper Bolivar Royal Coronas: Scored a box of 2006s from a guy I know. TEB May06 I believe. 06 was when they won cigar of the year from CA. I thought they would be smoking better than they are. Still a little rough around the edges, need another 6 months.

    Poker night on Friday -- one Ramon Allones regional edition Asia Pacific, one Cohiba Siglo I, and one H Upmann Magnum 46. Rum selections "on tap" included Zafra 21 Year Old, Flor de Cana 12, Diplomatico Exclusivo, and a few others. A solid night.

    Smoked a few great cigars over the weekend that I had not tried before, including Tatuaje Churchill (excellent) and a Cubao Maduro robusto. Had another horrible Illusione No. 2 but I am chalking it up to poor (too much) humidification, since this used to be one of my favorite cigars.

    Those are Boveda Humipacks and they are great. I use either those or Heartfelt beads exclusively. It is about one pack per 25 cigars plus one for the humi. They ought to last 2 - 3 months at a minimum and run $4 - 5 per pack.

    Which Tat did you smoke? I smoked a few good cigars this weekend, but there is still one more left so I'll report after all is said and done.

    Plain old brown label, terrific cigar.. I use the Xikar pre-packed humipacks that you just add their PG solution to, and they seem to work alright, once I got past the whole idea that creating humidity with a chemical named propylene glycol (sp?) was not a bad thing..

    Heartfelt beads are a godsend for desktop humis. I love mine. I've heard that the heartfelts can have a harder time regulating RH in a larger cabinet sized humidor, even when quantities are adjusted for cubic feet. I can't really verify that, but it's what I've heard. Still, I love mine and recommend them every chance I get.
