CI rocks! I have ordered from them many times. They are legit, very prompt and great to work with. Never had an issue with them. I use them exclusivly except my main go-to is my local cigar shop (LCS).

CB brother sorry to hear your cigar woes my friend. Come down for a visit and load up! All the best.

Redneck...building a coolidor is easy and keeps cigars fresh with no problems.
you will need a couple things,cigar boxes or cedar trays,gauge,cooler and a humidifier....
I use two jars,one on top and one on the bottom ...it keeps 7 boxes of cigars at 70 %.









Very simple to make and cheap...go to a cigar shop and ask for a couple cheap cigar boxes
most will give them to you......the boxes or trays help hold the humidity at a steady controlled level.

Got a new go-to cigar the La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Maduro Cigars. Ligero is a type of cigar leaf from the top of the plant.

There are three types of leaves on each tobacco plant. These three types are called Ligero, Seco and Volado. Each and every cigar needs a combination of these three types, and the combination and how it is created will have a direct impact on the taste and smokability of your cigar. Look in your humidor. Each of those cigars has a certain type of tobacco. Each of those cigars also has Ligero, Seco and Volado leaves included.

Just what is the difference between the three types? Ligero, the first type, is made from the leaves at the top of the tobacco plant. These leaves will have the most flavor and will be the most bold. The more of the Ligero included, the stronger the cigar will be. The next type, Seco, comes from the middle part of the tobacco plant. These leaves are of the mild type, so depending on how much Seco is used; it will affect the mild flavor of your cigar.

The final leaf is the Volado. When it comes to flavor and aroma, the Volado does virtually nothing. Instead, this leaf, found at the bottom of the plant, will have the most burn ability. All cigars need Volado leaves so that they will burn properly and you will be able to enjoy them. This is because Ligero and Seco leaves will not burn very well on their own at all. Volado will make sure your cigars will burn.




Great flavor and a full bodied cigar very nice.
