    Favorites of the Bolivar Line?

    I've got boxes of PC from '08 and '09, and BBF from '08 (two boxes), and both are outstanding. I have smoked a couple of the CE's, and while they were good, they were not anywhere near the PC or BBF. I haven't had anything from '10 yet, so I can't speak to if they are up to par or not.

    Problems with CC 's and customs

    Ditto, got 2 boxes last week with no issues.

    Best cc right out of the box.

    Had a Boli BF from NOV 08 two nights ago, and it was pretty darn good. I know that's not super fresh, but it's fairly fresh. I usually have good luck with them when they are on the young side.

    Where should a CC virgin start?

    Bolivar PC is a great smoke. I've had some from '08 and '09, and they smoked great. Dip. #4 is another favorite of mine, but not quite as smooth as the Boli. Aaron

    Cigars Damp?

    I was having similar problems with some of my cigars, particularly cigars with darker wrappers. I brought my RH from 69-70 down to 65-66, and all my burn problems went away. I was amazed at how much difference just a few points of change in RH had on the way a cigar smoked. I now keep all my...

    Built in Wall Humidor - First time project

    LOL exactly! My wife has family in Ohio and when we go visit them, I stand in the full sized basements and think 'oh what I could do down here!' Nice work on the humidor!

    Bolivar Petit Corona, Montecristo #4

    Well, I decided to try another #4 against my better judgement. To my pleasant surprise, it is really good! Smoking it right now with a glass of Mac 12, and I'm happy to find out that I may have just had a bad one last time. They still need some time I think. I had every intention of not...

    Triple Cap?

    I was in a similar situation a few months ago. A buddy came back from Houduras with 1/2 box of Cohibas. While I was doubtful about the authenticity, I didn't say anything, and smoked one with him. It wasn't the worst cigar I ever smoked, but not as good as it should have been, even though it was...

    If you're upgrading to a bigger humidor...

    Wow. That is an impressive collection of cigars you have there.

    Cohiba Siglo VI Gran Reserva

    Nice score man. What are you going to drink when you smoke one of those bad boys?

    finished my cabinet

    Good job on the cabinet, and I'm extremely jealous of your smoking room. We are looking at houses right now and one of my criteria is a room that is already or can easily be made smoke-friendly. Nice work!

    Bolivar Petit Corona, Montecristo #4

    Yeah the Boli's have a really great complexity and full body taste. I haven't been smoking much in the last week or so, I hope to mix a few new smokes in the near future. I'm sure I will find others I enjoy, but the Boli's are at the top of my list for sure. I want to age some of the PC's but...
