That kind of gets in to another thing I have always wondered about the Habanos on the list. CA says their process is to make a list of all the cigars rated 91+ (if I recall) throughout the year in...

To the reviewers, yes. They had the Serie V Melanio Figurado as #1 in 2014.

Remember, there's no bands on them so "Cuban hype" can't make its way in to this, assuming they are telling the truth...

They always include a few Habanos in the list and they dont buy ad space. However most of their monthly reviews are from manufacturers that do, and since you have to rate well on a monthly review to...

Yeah, I'm not sure what context was meant before by calling a Macanudo a dog rocket but they are well made sticks with decent tobacco. I have had a few here and there received in samplers early on...

Seems like this would cause the cup to empty more quickly rather than having the hot water linger longer in the cup itself picking up flavor, making a weaker cup instead of as intended. I'm willing...

I don't buy Habanos but I freeze everything too. It's such a small hassle to have (reasonable) piece of mind.

Yeah, the 2000 (5 x 50 robusto) is typically less than $5 online. Maduro or Natural wrapper, very good smoke.

If you are letting the water actually touch the pack, you should use DW only in my opinion. If you are rehydrating them using an open container of water in a clossed vessel (like Tupperware) and the...

The Hemingway Maduros used to be more rare, not sure what changed but for a while now they have been readily available everywhere. Smoke them up I would say.

Check the date, that's a REALLY old article. Not much around at that time for desktop humidors beside florist foam, no beads, no boveda, etc. Maybe a few pioneers of kitty litter were out there but...

The final third is supposed to be Blanco's interpretation of the Padron Family Reserve 50 Year, which retails for $25.20 a piece and you will be hard pressed to find it discounted. I did get a five...

Last I heard they were making another, I haven't looked in to it lately though.
