Yes I also enjoy them at night next to a good fire sometimes with a pour of good bourbon.

It would not be a surprise to see one in my hand around the evening campfire. How does everyone transport them when you are out for an extended period of time? To date I have only used a zip lock and an dash of hope to keep them from drying out while traveling.

I have a couple different options depending on the length of the trip. I have a small travel case that holds roughly four cigars which I picked up from cigarbid.com for $5. I through a bovine humidifying pack in there and it's good to go. The container is shock proof and fairly water tight. For longer trips I use something akin to a pelican case albeit much cheaper in price and quality. Those can hold up to 40 cigars and was roughly $30. I got those from cigarinternational.com

The biggest considerations when using any of these is temperatures. The humidifying packs can keep it roughly 69-72% humidity but they don't regulate temperatures which can drastically impact the overall taste, smoke and quality of the cigar. Keep it wrapped up in some thicker insulating blankets during the cold.

Cheers bud! Hope that helped.

Try one of these...Water Pillow ...works great in a simple zip lock type bag with 4-6 cigars, to keep 'em ready when you are. :sunglasses:

I really need to start posting in this thread....especially before it gets so hot in Phoenix and I am smoking late at night in the dark :)
This was a 2014 Hoyo de Monterrey Double Corona from a dress box. I also have a 50 cab about the same vintage and it is always interesting to see how there is NO difference between aging in desktop, dress box or cab. As long as the conditions are good sticks just mellow without any differences.

These beast are 1.5hrs of smooth, woodsy soft joy. The funny this in I am usually thinking I would rather have 2 robusto or corona gorda sticks vs these logs.
My notes say I paid $12ea for these in 2014.....hahahaha not only have I not seen boxes or cabs in ages but the auctions sites are more in the $30-$40 range now. Good stick at $12, crazy to pay current prices.

I have had good luck with these:
Easy to keep around the house, you don't get sad if you leave one at a friend's house, and nothing to keep track of when you are done with your smoke.

That looks like just the trick-thanks for sharing.

So I am trying to get better about taking a beginning, middle and end pic of my sticks...
however this 2017 Bolivar Belicoso Fino had me enjoying, thinking, and remembering past times with this marca....so no other pics.
Funny thing is of the Bolivar line this is my 2nd least favorite...the best are long gone, Royal Corona, Corona Extra, Lonsdale....
But I still love the Petite Corona and Corona Jr, and of course the BBF.20220515_181949.jpg
