Semi-New in Iraq
I am semi-New to cigars. I usually go to a cigar shop in town and talk to the owner if I have a question. But now I am deployed to Iraq. I was told that my base had a small tobacco shop before I got here. But, because of the drawdown, it was shut down before I showed up. All we can get are some DRY counterfeit Iraqi Cohibas from the Iraqi bazaar. Me and some of the guys are trying to start up a small cigar club to enjoy a cigar a few times a week. I would like to order some samplers from this website and a travel humidor. Does anyone have any suggestions for some semi-beginner cigar samplers or humidor/storage suggestions? Or any prior-military with suggestions for deployed cigar smoking? Any advice would be much appreciated! Also, to "enjoy" my fake Cohibas, I usually buy one and put it in a ziploc bag with a folded up wet piece of toilet paper. I never let the toilet paper touch the cigar. Then I breathe into the bag and fog it up. I repeat the "fogging" every couple days. It gets a little better after about a week of doing that. I know it sounds weird, but it works....kind of. Is there a better way to fix up my smokes while I try to get my hands on a humidor?
