    [​IMG] Every cigar smoker needs a pair of these. Fits right on the keychain, has an adjuster, a bleader, a bottle opener, and 1 other thing (nail dirt get-er out-er?).

    Any one of you guys tried any of this year's EL's? Fuck the Trinidad, way too expensive/short and the Robusto T is too good, but the Monte Grand Edmundo and Party Serie D Especiale are the best EL's I think since the '07 Hoyo Regalos and the '04 Romeo Hermoso #2.

    You really think that they are better than last year's Mag 48? The couple Mag 48s I've had have been great.

    My vector didn't come with any adaptors. [​IMG]

    also, on an unrelated note, I'm unsure about drilling into the back of my edgestar... We'll see how this one ends up. Also, anyone with a wineador, what do you put your HF beads in (in the wineador)? tupperware I'm assuming?

    I thought you said a few pages ago that they were way too young.

    agreed on CI. had a padilla 32 from ama over the weekend that he bought at his local store. something about it was better than what i've got from CI. sometimes i get a harsh feeling from the CI ones.

    Y'know, I have to say I agree with this, and I think it comes down to humidity. I almost never smoke anything I get from CI without letting them sit for at least a few weeks in my humidor. They just taste, dry, is the best way to put it. The 1932 is one of the best robustos going when it's done right.

    had a perdomo habano robusto last night. great cigar, really falling in love with this mark

    Agreed, very good cigar for the price. About the only thing I will smoke from Perdomo these days, besides maybe the corojo.

    They are, at least I think. That being said, they taste like they have great potential for their age.

    I love the '32, really a great stick. The T52 I had from CI had been at 65% for over 6 months though and still tasted lousy. I think the problem is that once sticks dry out they lose a lot or oils and subsequently flavor. Most if not all the stuff that arrives from CI is bone dry.

    you have to crank up the rh a bit when you first get in new sticks from transit and nics love higher rh, so the 32s would have to be stored at least at 70% to taste good again

    Eh, I don't know. Once a stick has dried out that badly its usually a lost cause. I've tried keeping them in tupperware with Bovida 72% packs. Didn't really help unfortunately. I think its safer to just not buy from them any longer.

    Thinking about copping aristrocrat later on, how big are your guys' cabinet humidors? Wondering if a 50-60 ct would suffice for several years to come.
