Nah. The "gloveador" doesn't require Boveda packs. Old fast food wrappers and car wash air fresheners keep the flavors in
Rondo, UBC03 and Dentedcan like this.

I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.

Do you have to "season" it first?

Lol. I use free child labor for that. Whatever kids sneak into the glove compartment when you are not looking at "seasons" it for life

I did that with my first "large" desktop when I got it. I picked up a bundle of "factory throwouts" for dirt cheap just to take up some space... Ended up being a decent buy. After about a year they turned into some pretty good yard gars for about $1 a stick.

Call me crazy, but I always thought the DE dirty rats and flying pigs and such were way over hyped for the $$ and quality. Guys at my local B+M were practically lined up to buy them the days the shipments arrived... Or maybe I have really crummy taste. Both are very plausible.

I've smoked more than my share.sure some were garbage and some were smokable. Like was said before they've spread themselves so thin quality has suffered. Plus the msrp and the hype is stupid, any one that pays 17$ for a beast gets what he deserves. But they sell a ton at the fancy b&m I go to. Probably because off the reviews.

CI in particular seem to stash bad reviews. Look up Ron Mexico cigars, a turd amongst turds. I think they're a four star cigar which makes my case against their reviews a slam dunk.

I know I have crummy taste (the only notes I remember during/after a cigar are Terrible, OK, Good, Good will buy again). And I like the Dirty Rats quite a bit, Velvet rat, T52s as well. Granted they are more expensive, but to each their own.

I'll smoke Liga #9's and T52's on occasion, but usually only when the mood hits me. They aren't one of my go-to's but still a quality stick. There's just something about the rats and pigs that don't do it for me I guess.
