    I had a Cuban Montecristo torpedo in Jamaica in January. It was very smooth, not at all harsh like many of the Cubans I have had in the past when I lived in Germany.

    My go-to is the Dominican/Nicaraguan White Label. Will be enjoying one at the Havana Garage in Old Town Omaha tonight, where we have a jazz gig.

    Back in Germany I LOVED the Juan Clementes. I have not seen this in the States for the last 20 years. I think the originator of the brand died, and I am not sure the company is still in business. Shame, because it was a GREAT cigar, especially for before dinner.

    Been using xikar crystal jars for years with no issues. You do have to refill them with solution/water. Always have one jar in center of my humidor with average 25-40 cigars at a time. And it’s always between 65-70%, usually more toward 70. Then again having a nice tight cedar humidor makes a world of difference too.

    And I try to always leave new cigars in the humidor for at least a couple weeks before I smoke them.

    I don't know...the hair and low-grade filler materials kind of make it more authentic as a Cuban...Revenge for decades of embargo and all that :laugh:

    From the questions being asked here sometimes, many are newcomers. I want to say what recently happened to me.
    I recently had a major water leak in my house while I was on vacation. In addition to losing most furniture and possessions, my humidors were moldy inside and out. While construction was going on I was living off site.

    I replaced a humidor and refilled it. About two weeks later I notice white spots on some cigars! "Oh No! mold followed me!" I thought. Then I calmed down and I recalled what is known as cigar plume. Also called bloom. These are harmless white spots that sometimes form on cigars during the aging process. They are based on the oils inside the cigars. It appears as fine, white, powdery 'dots' and they easily brush off and don't leave any discoloration behind. Mold, OTOH, is not uniformly round, and can have a color to it. When you brush off mold with your finger, there's a discoloration that remains on the cigar.

    If you are really unsure what you're seeing, you can take the suspect cigars and put them inside their own humidor bag and wait it out and see if it's mold, as it will get very much worse over time. I hope this helps someone and prevents them from possibly throwing away perfectly good cigars.

    The growth I noticed in my situation was mold, I checked it under magnification.

    There’s some science out there claiming plume is a myth and is actually a form of mold

    I’m a huge beer, whiskey and cigar nerd. Those get most of my hobby money.

    I was in Miami to run some errands and I stopped by one of those cigar shops in Little Havana . They were really pricey and didn’t get a chance to spend more time d/t dermatologist appointment. Learnt a lot and got a box of Rocky Patel Toro based on owner’ recommendation and it fit to my budget. I checked online and actually wasn’t a bad choice.
