    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I tend to agree. If I were building it for someone else I would have recommended larger, but being that it's just for me and I wanted to use material on hand, I decided to do it up this way. That being said it's probably a 1/2 size larger than my previous humidor and that got filled up quickly.

    I don't buy many cigars, but one of my good friends is a long time smoker and usually gets me a box for Christmas. So I have wayyyyy more than I will smoke in the next few years.

    Anytime, I have a short backlog at current, but if you have something in mind send me a PM and we'll work out the details.

    After a few days in San Fran, only smoked one stick there which was a Por Larranaga Secretos.Monday nights smoke was an aged (no idea what year) RyJ Prince of Wales which I didn't particularly enjoy (only have two that I got from a BOTL in Jan). Pitched it at the last third and followed up with an '10 Trini Reyes.Didn't really enjoy that one either!Maybe a bad night of sticks or my palate was off...hope to smoke tonight.

    Checked the app for breaks in the rain earlier today, this Hoyo Des Dieux gifted yesterday by a top BOTL. Can't remember exactly what age (perhaps '03) this one was from a cardboard 5 pack I believe. First ever go on these-oh dear now I'm on the hunt for some. Really delicious creamy, woody smoke, loads more sweet creamy smoke.... I can see why so many love these....

    Provincial factory code rolling a flagship marca--run away! At least grab Upmann, Partagas, La Corona factories if not el Laguito.

    Smoked a Don Pepin Garcia JJ Maduro last night. The factory stopped making these a few years ago, but I was lucky enough to find a box in a JR Cigar store somewhere near Raleigh, NC last summer. I'd socked it away and forgot about it. Until last night. Easily one of the 10 finest smoking moments of my life. Even you CC guys need to try one of these if you can find them.

    An AUM MAY14 Monte Esp 2, this time from a different box.Wrapper much darker and oiler than the previous one I smoked the other week,flavours richer too.

    The FDA made a decision today that could change the landscape of cigars in the US. They're lumping them in with all tobacco products (mostly to curtail the e-cig market and usage with youths) and will cause quite a burden to the cigar manufacturers to have the FDA approve their products for sale in the US, ultimately reducing supply and driving prices up.
