    After 14-18months of cigar hiatus..This happens

    After a stressful month and realizing i haven't smoked for almost 1.5 years i realized that my humidors needed some attention once again. (FYI i do check on my RH every 1.5 months and rehydrate with a dropper; i believe my heartfelt beads are always sitting 62%-67% with the 65% beads). Passed week or so i puffed liga privada no.9 & t52 i started to realize that cigars really do taste better after some age no matter what! Anyways, i felt the need to come back and see whats going on puff forums and the rest of the cigar world. While coming back, this happens...
    Cigar bid/online:
    #4 box of don carlos
    10-Pre-embargo Camachoes
    1-hygrometer
    1- 1/2lb of 65% beads
    1- Leather cigar holder (2)

    BOTL
    4- Hemingway sampler
    1- RP 2003 Cameroon Cigar
    1- 601 Red label
    1- Cuesta- Rey Centro Fino #55

    After 1.5 years my cigars are still kicking butt and there are no words to describe of the aromas coming out of my humidor(s) (the other wasnt listed and coolidor).

    Anejos, Padrons, Camacho



    YUM gonna smoke one over the weekend which one? Should i review the new Rocky Patel 2003 cameroon!?!? with coffee? hmmm

    Howdy Erwin,
    Nice to see you posting again.

    Your collection is looking grrrrrrrrrrreat!

    I vote no on the Rocky Patel 2oo3 Camy.
    I think it would be inhumane to smoke it before giving it some time to rest and recover from the journey.

    In order to cast my vote I need more info.

    What time of day will you shmoke?
    What else will be going on/ what will you be doing?
    Where will you be, indoors or out?
    At home or somewhere else?
    Will there be any time constrictions?

    Inquiring fish need to know

    Best wishes, Dafiddla


    P.S. Congratulations on your new purchases!

    P.P.S. Since you are hep to the value of aging, you might want to consider
    aquiring some blank cigar bands to write the date aquired on.

    Ha, I'm the same way. On one hand my wife gets annoyed (because I go between cigars and golf as hobbies 1 and 1A, with baseball cards/memorabilia a close #2. I seem to rotate among the three as the seasons change (granted, I live in San Diego...) but I like cigars when it's cooler and golf when it's warmer. The memorabilia stuff only coincides with baseball season.
    Smoke what you like, like what you smoke.

    Mine goes:
    Fast cars- work on my supra
    Motorcycles/adventure travel- play with my BMW
    Trucks 4x4- work on my diesel Land Cruisers
    Cigars- build a wineador and buy more smokes
    Lifting- hit the gym more than twice a week/ get on workout forums
    Salt water fish- build a new tank/ buy coral
    Guns- shoot more, reload more, buy new gun and get back on the forums
    Photography- buy a new lens

    Then it seems to start over again usually bouncing between some sort of vehicle and guns.

    Nice salt water maintenance and guns!
    I was into that too; when it was warmer i use to road bike 100 miles (20-22miles a day) a week and about 2 months ago did a century ride. I was hoping to train for tough mudder but i'm focusing on my career right now. Anyways, i love shifting gears--it makes life exciting and surprising at the same time.

    Funny, I just tried to edit my post to add cycling because I forgot. Every time I do an organized ride I want a new bike. My last ride was 60 miles but I want to do a century. Then my friend got into running so we did the Warrior Dash. We talked about doing the Tough Mudder next year.

    That's funny. I was into planted tanks as well. For me, I think the hobby is to learn about something, and once I get my fill of info I move on because I don't have the attention span to maintain it. I need to find things that don't require a ton of daily effort.

    10 gallon tank
    Anubias, Crypts, Moss balls, I forgot the name of the purple/green plant.

    Substrate:
    red sea flora base
    15-watt light
    (i think my lighting is that good)
    Im hoping one day when i get a house there would be a dedicated aquarium and library.

    VIDEO: http://youtu.be/FZqLz1xks-Y

    SHOOT i may fluctuate to aquarium planting after watching that video!
    I usually get my plants here: http://www.freshwateraquariumplants.com/

    During college I worked at a fish-only pet shop. They were African Cichlid and Reef Tank snobs and just didn't get it. A densely planted, well fertilized freshwater tank populated with a few dwarf cichlids requires infinitely more work (and equipment!) than either a cichlid or reef tank...

    My problem has always been that once the tank is set up the fun is pretty much over. I eventually sold my 75g to my now-ex brother-in-law and every now and then find myself regretting that.

    Either way that looks like a decent stash of nicely aged cigars!!!
    So in other words, stop reading reviews and smoke more tobacco?
    Read! Think! Debate! Vote!
