Smoking a stubby little Ave Maria right now. Not sure what the vitola is called, but it’s very good.

Definitely going to have to take advantage of nicer days to smoke a cigar.  I let my humidor get down to 60% for quite a period, because apparently only my 75% packs do the job (the 69s only kept it about 60%, and the 72s about 63.5%).

Finally caved and did the soak method to recharge my Boveda packs.  Had a few bone dry, so I gave it 5-6 days and they are working great!  Looks like it's finally back to just a shade under a steady 70%.

Ave Maria.  VERY underrated brand.

I have a buddy sending me a ton of pipe tobacco and a meerschaum pipe, which I'm stoked to tear into.

A mild stick for a mild night.

I'm not the greatest at maintaining my humidor....but it gets down into the low 60's and I swap out the packs and recharge them (yeah, soak method is so simple and easy).  Haven't seen any ill effects of my poor maintenance.

Don't smoke as often as I thought I might.  But I do LOVE having a good cigar right there when the mood strikes.  I like to double-dip when I do, so finding robusto or whatever is about 5" long is what I want to stock.  Also prefer @60's diameter for a good cool smoke.

I still love Partagas.  Also love Rocky Patel.  Haven't found anything else, yet, to start stocking.  But my tiny humidor can easily stock 5-10 of each with plenty of room to experiment.
