    What happened to The Great HBT Stogie Thread

    I'm Jealous! My wife bought me a box of the Monte #4 for Christmas. But she bought the tubos. Every friggin one was plugged. Thank god for my cigar poker. I would have been really pissed. That's the problem with CC's. You cant return them. But cigarsofhabanos is good to me. Ravi is good peeps.

    I did get the Anvil delivered today thanks to a suggestion here. I would suggest downloading the manual from Anvil. They've changed the design a bit. Particularly, the way you hang the malt tube.

    I have maybe one hundred if you are interested. Aged nicely. It'll cost you but you won't be disappointed. I'm also getting rid of my cabinet humidor. Can't afford the vice as much as I used to. Retiring at the end of April. Hey, I'm good with it. 59, debt free. Come on April!😆
