    Humidor Trouble

    Vote for boveda here too. I'd get rid of the foam, xikar puck and use 2 $4 sized packs that should last 6+ months. Write the dates on the packs when you put them in, and if they don't last at least 4 months, the humidor likely has a leak.

    My first haul

    Congrats! The first buy is always an exciting one! Purely aesthetically speaking though - is it just me or are ISOMs really not as pretty as non-CCs? I don't say this to be disrespectful to OP, but because I personally notice this everytime I look at my (small but nonetheless) CC collection...

    Thoughts on this humidor?

    I've seen this in person at IPCPR and it's beautiful. It's the exact one I wanted for myself but didn't have the means then. My favorite part was the drawer slides that feel really smooth and high quality. Less favorite was the hardware on the front just because it isn't my style but that's an...

    Xikar lighter?

    I purge mine differently. I hold the lighter upside down and purge out the air while the gas stays at the bottom of the tank. Keep lighter upside down and fill with butane and repeat the process till the whole thing fills. But more importantly, if you don't see a spark, that's a totally...
