LOL! I could rattle on for awhile about good cigars. I have yet to see the Rocky Patel Burn you mentioned, but will be looking for one as soon as I get off

To the best of my knowledge, he only opened one "Burn" cigar bar in Napels Florida. It's someplace special. The one time I went , they even had pre-Castro Cubans in their humidor

You gotta be careful. They send their better cigars to their best markets. The Cubans I had in Japan were crap (the Japanese generally just want the status symbol). The ones I had in Hong Kong, on the other hand were as good as sex.

Canada is a decent market. If you have a contact there......

Stay away from the web sites claiming to ship Cubans to the US. I've heard stories about counterfeits

Not a aficionado but I do smoke every now and then. My favorite brands are Arturo Fuente and La Flora Dominicana (LFD). Also a fan of Romeo y Julieta's. I usually go for the mild ones, maduros are usually too strong for me.

The great thing about the cigar "boom" of the 90s is that the manufacturers started making a lot of cigars that have flavor and won't put you into a coma after smoking them.

Back in the day,we called Macanudos and Romeo Y Julietas "frat boy cigars" since that's what they'd buy. Now they're both good smokes....

That makes since. Smoked a real cohiba in Mexico. I wasn't that impressed.

Well not because I'm Cuban but I like the brand Acid. They have quite a tasty selection. Presidente's, Robustos's, Torpedos, Panatela's, Churchill's, I like the Kuba Kuba, Blonde's, and the Liquid. I've had the Nasty but that's is a bad boy.
I use to spend a lot of time in Baja Mexico and tried a lot of brands. I found the Mexican brand Teamo while in Puerto Vallarta about 20 years ago. They are very tasty & a great bargain. For the price you could not beat it.
Here some pics that might delight some aficionados.DSCN0576.JPG

Acid is a strange cigar brand. Most flavored cigars are crap. Acid (although I'll admit I've never tasted one) seems to continue to sell a lot and to appeal to a lot of consumers....

Yeah they are definitely different, but they are smooth as silk. I tell you if a newbie tries one they will like them. They have a lot of body and flavor. But as I said the Teamo is great for the price and beginner.
I also like Habanos (Cuban) they make a petite Corona called Belinda's. The reason I tried these was because my wife's name is Belinda and I ended up liking them.

As far as the cooler yes the reds & wifes champagne are at the bottom and whites up top and the HumiDrawer, as they call it is the split. She buys close out wine and 2 for ones on sales so the cooler works out.

I lve in Denver and the humidity is about, well we don't have any. I have always been told that a perfect humidor needs to be at 70/70. 70 percent humidity at 70 degrees F.

I see your USN, retired? I have a son in the USCG. He was in Puerto Rico assisting DEA & Imigration now he's in Jersey boarding vessels.

Yeah whites do not need low temp preferably just below or at room temp! I went to school in Durango Colo.

Can't remember which acid I smoked. It had a blue label. Can't say I liked it too much. I will give them another try from the selection you mentioned.

I like sweets so I guess that's why I recommend them. As far as smooth they're real smooth though!

Yes, retired in 2005. Worst sunburn of my life, I got in Rosey Roads, Peurto Rico. Ask your son if he ever had a beer at "Mama's"....

I'm trusting you! It smells very mild. The three I had today were very bitter and strong. After sitting on the porch for an hour and a half, standing up was difficult. I was too light headed to do anything. Hm

Just finished the number 7. EXCELLENT. Very robust, unique flavor. Seemed as though it was vapor, not smoke. The taste was almost like a wave. At the first pull, I was confused because I didn't know what to expect. Very good. Thank you sir!
