What does the contents of your humidor say about you?

If someone walked in and took a look at your cigar inventory, what would they conclude about your smoking profile? I'll start.

First (and I suspect this is shared by many here), they'd think I kinda like smoking cigars. Next, they'd probably note that I'm not very brand loyal since a lot of cigarmakers are represented. They might also note that there's no particular strength preference. They might figure that I walk a dog, play golf and/or now my own lawn since there are a decent number of "value" (read: cheap) smokes in there. Lastly, they would probably not use the word "aficiando" to describe what they see since there are very few cigars valued at over $12 to be found.

How about yours?

    They say my humidor's better than yours.   :D

    And then they'd say I'm too lazy to type out a real post.

    Other then the wonderful cigars I got from The Shizz my humidors ( 2 desktops & I just started a Coolidor) are pretty inexpensive also. I like to try a variety of smokes and the way I pick them out is read the reviews and look at the bands. The nicer looking the band, the more likely I am to buy. I've yet to be disappointed by my picks. Each one seems to have it's own quality, taste, & flavor. So you could call me a Happy Herfer.

    That I have a problem, then I’d say it isn’t a problem so long as I don’t make it one with the wife.

    I keep my stash spread out across various coolers, humidors, tupperwares.  Non-smoker married to a friend of the wife, you will see a humidor or two with yard gars.  Fellow smoker and friend, you may see the main cooler.  If you want to see the aging cooler we will need to be tight

    Two desk top humidors, one for me, one for her.  Six or seven tupperdors equals, dude cant you make up your mind???  Simple reply is:  I like them all

    For me it says I buy way more than I smoke....not a bad thing.
    I haven't showed the coolidor to anyone yet but do to collecting/hoarding running in the family most people would think I have a problem....I say what's worse having a cooler or two or 5 filled with wonderful cigars or the whole damn house filled with worthless $hit...No Joke!

    No matter what they tell me, I tell them, "You can't smoke money."  I'd rather have my money in the form of cigars, so I can burn it.

    It says I smoke all the good ones first! 

    That's really it, too.  I've gotten so many package deals as gifts and such that I smoke what i like and leave the rest.

    The problem is the wife always says, "you have so many, why do you need any more?"

    I should just recycle the usual suspects (cigars with initials 'G' or 'RP').

    Intelligence is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.
