    Maybe the second time will be the charm... new legislation to keep the FDA out of our cigars.

    One of the best industry-pro excerpts I have read on the topic, courtesy of our friends at Halfwheel: "Once FDA announces the cost of applications for substantial equivalence, we will have a much better grasp of what this means for the cigar industry going forward. The craft beer industry is...

    Maybe the second time will be the charm... new legislation to keep the FDA out of our cigars.

    Drawers in my wineador and boveda?

    In my Whynter Wineador I have been running a box of 65% Bovedas as well as Heartfelt 65% beads. My humidor will always be reading a constant 64-65%. I have not noticed any negative affects of using both in unison.

    Cello or no cello? Real or Fake?

    I think it's plumold, a combination of mold and plume, caused by extreme aging in a humid environment. Very illusive. Contrary to popular belief I feel mold imparts a wonderful spice character in tobacco. That combined with plume is pure heaven. Just my two cents.

    Weather affecting cigars

    My cigars lately have all been turning soggy and bitter, wrappers aren't burning etc. I keep my wineador at 67 and have a humidor at 62 where I keep the weeks smokes. It has been very humid however in RI. Can this outside humidity be affecting the cigar as I smoke?
