I'm not totally sure what kind of flavors you mean, but I know they sell mint and chocolate flavored, as well as some tropical blend thing, in most convinent stores. A friend of mine smokes the chocolate camels and he buys them at 7 eleven.

Though my buying habits have continued unabated, no box pics to post. 4 boxes in the air as I type....though some of that is split, I'll only walk with 3....

Here is a little treat that did come into my hands today.... Tatuaje Wolfman... Have a 10 count box on the way....

Whoever is selling.... Laughing There are about 10 places that get my business, maybe more, I have 8 bookmarked....

Those buying local(wouldn't be local for you), http://www.cigarsatyourprice.com/, http://www.cigarplace.biz/index.cfm/a/catalog.alphabetizedlist, http://www.atlanticcigar.com/ are good places to start, not to mention what seem to be the big boys, http://www.cigarsinternational.com/, http://www.holts.com/home.html, http://www.famous-smoke.com/ ect....

For about a year or so, most of my cigar money has been going to box splits with a guy who buys elsewhere....

These are usually my two sources...

http://www.phatash.com/

http://www.seriouscigars.com/index.aspx

Having relatives in Norway, my Cubans usually come from there.

We always keep a stock of inexpensive long filler sticks around for boating & golf...and for guests who want to smoke a cigar but have no idea!

Hate to revive an older thread, but.....

I got myself a NewAir280e wine cooler and am making myself a wineador. Plan on ordering a lot of sticks as soon as my shelves come in.

Anyone want to do a box split?

I only smoke Cuban's!! I have one Cohiba left. and half a box of the Monte's. When i was in Havana last week I'd get a lobster dinner, drinks and they'd throw in a big dog cohiba for 15 bucks...

I'm not a huge fan of the Cuban's, all the ones i have had the opportunity to smoke have been pretty strong.

I had a CAO Gold on Saturday that I was pretty happy with.

Depends on the cigar I guess, all different levels of strength from all the producers.

I smoke about 50/50..... Enjoy stuff from the Dominican, Nicaragua, Hondurans, Cubans ect....

I belive that cuban grown tobacco tends to be a little stronger.

Just like with any cigar, some cubans are stronger than others.

Like I said in my post yesterday. My last comments were related to the fact that I do not agree that Cuban tobacco is inherently stronger, which I do not feel is true. There are strong and mild cigars from every Country, it's all in the blend & vitola.

E.J., it's just the mystique of the Cubanos in the US. Nothing more. I've had good Cubans and good *insert other Cigar-exporting nation here* (like you, I've had them from a lot of places over the years).

Have you ever used cigarbid.com? It's like Ebay for cigars. It's a subsidiary of Cigars International. It's not that great for the Premium Premium brands, but it's a great spot to pick up some mid-high end sticks.

E.J. - do you have a hard time keeping your humidity up in dry-ass Utah?

I have my stuff stored in a dry basement and i am having a heck of a time keeping them properly hydrated. Could imagine how much harder it would be in Utah from my experience there.

I use water (none of that formula stuff but considering it) and the white humidor balls.

Have you tried heartfelt beads? I'm originally from southwestern kansas which is dryer than all get out, but I just had to refill my beads about every 3 weeks

Have used CBid, but not for a LONG time. Generally just buy from vendors for what I consider a solid price.

That is what I use as well. I have about double the recommended amount(they're cheap) and I'm good as gold. Have to refresh more in the Winter, but it is still only every few weeks.

I'm between 63% and 67% pretty consistently now that I'm using the beads correctly. HAPPY.

Had a Headley Grange over last weekend. I was impressed, anyone try a Four Kicks? Thought about giving them a shot based on HG.
