No need to apologies at all and getting a hell of a deal on some Tempus doesn't make you look tight. Just smart. There's no reason to pay more for something if you can find it for less. Your better off asking and feeling reaffirmed than buying something at or close to MSRP from an auction site because you didn't ask. IMO at least.

Default New Coolidor

Bought the 150qt Coleman Extreme at wally world for an unethical price. I wiped the internal surface with newspaper then left a tray of baking soda and unopened newspapers inside for a couple days. Then, I wiped it down with a mild solution of oxyclean free and DW and shortly after wiped the residue clean with a damp rag of DW. Let it sit in the garage open for another day with the lid open....this was a unnecessarily long process, but I was in no hurry and really don't need it until some sticks land in the mail. So now that there is no hint of new cooler smell....

I threw some cigar boxes that I bought at the liquor store/cigar shop (four boxes for 8$) in the cooler. I wiped them all down with DW. I also threw in a humidifying disk and tube to help balance things out. Next is the KITTY LITTER Bought the 8lb jug of Exquisticat and threw some in a tupperware (guessing half pound?) container, gave the container about 10 squirts of DW from a water bottle and closed the lid. I also threw in a few yard sticks that aren't really vulnerable to potential volatility (which I don't think there will be). I did this because it is more mass at the right the RH and should help stabilize the environment.



Going to add shelves and eventually coat it with cedar. Maybe I'll do something on the outside to conceal that it's a cooler. I have a great spot in the garage where it will just slide into a built in cabinet but it may be too cold in the winter, but it work just fine for half the year. It's only been a couple hours since I added the boxes and it already smells like a humidor and has rh of 62%. Fun sh!t

Congrats on the new set up!! Watch how rock solid that KL holds your RH.

I got a 10 pack of DPG blue on free fall for a really good price a while back...good stuff. No worries about posting prices, cigars have a large price variance always good for a little reassurance. I tend to go and look and CI and a few other places to see what they sell for before placing a bid. Just make sure to do something as I have seen folks pay way more than standard retailer prices in bidding wars over at c-bid...I think folks either get confused and think they are bidding on a 5 pack when its a single or they look at the MSRP and think they are still getting a good deal even though no one sells for MSRP.

Finishing up a CAO Osa, my first one. CAO is always a solid brand. Very earthy with just a hint of menthol.

Maybe Im showing off my ignorance here, but how do you all feel about the Don Mateo maduros? Used to be a favorite of mine for the price. Mellow with no "bite" and a pleasant raisin or prune flavor in the background.

I've never had one but it sounds like something I could enjoy. Might have to look for a single next time I'm in the cigar shop.

Big suckers too... I'd say 50 ring x 6 or 7 inches. Long smoke.

After a few days in the dry box I'm enjoying my first Pepin Blue Label. Don't know how I haven't smoked one yet being a huge fan of his blends. The draw is effortless, tons of smoke, even burn, medium-full body, chocolatey especially on the retrohale, nice coffee notes, and touch of pepper that's also amped up on the retrohale. Reminds me a lot of his 601 blends.
