Greetings, new member here. I just started smoking cigars last year but am already an old curmudgeon. 
I used to buy Cubans for my friends when I traveled overseas but last time I ask them to pick out 6 for me to try. Two of the best, to me, were the Monticristos #2 and Diplomaticos.  I can't afford to smoke just Cubans so I started looking for NC to start my stash. I have to admit that what I'm looking for at this point are ones that are not real strong or peppery. A little is good. Some of my favorites are Monticristo white, RP Renaissance, Alec Bradley Nico Puro. I have many more that I haven't got to yet but it is a wide variety.
 I do smoke a lot of the ACID Kuba Kuba for now. I can see that changing soon because I'm liking more non-flavored stuff. I've been buying a ton of stuff just to have some sticks to start resting, which is I started the ACID, doesn't need rest. 
I am currently using a bunch of tuppidors and seasoning a cc-100h because heating is more important up here, Alaska, than cooling them!

Now this is not the end of the cigar. It is not even the beginning of the end of the cigar. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning of the cigar.

    Apologies, I didn't see the new members thread. Maybe it should be moved there instead😱

    Ya don't.   That's fine for where we are.  Things will drop a bit Rh wise come winter.   Dropped you a PM. I can give you a rundown on my setup if you like.  It's working fine.
    I'm still troubled by what I did for that Klondike bar...

    Welcome @Far_North_64. Try the Sobremesa for a great cigar that's not too bitter or peppery.
    I'll gladly bomb you Tuesday for an Opus today.

    You’re supposed to ask how to season a humi first then talk about it being half a point off target. 

    Welcome aboard

    I was thinking 65 Boveda might be too low in the winter since my house doesn't get above 63 in the winter. 
    I would love what you set up is. Responded to PM
