I’ve recently posted in regards to the samplers I ordered over the weekend. My cigars arrived last night and I needed a place to put them. I had 45 sticks delivered and I was tight on space. After some reading I decided to make a coolidor. I’m happy to say its working great and I have a ton of space for future cigars.
What I did was take an old coleman cooler (11″ W x 11″ L x 18″ D) and cleaned it out real well. I only used hot tap water with a clean cloth to wipe it down. I let it dry out then went back and wiped it out again with a clean cloth saturated in distilled water. Once this was taken care of, I wiped down a few pieces of spanish cedar with distilled water. I put the cedar in the cooler along with a wet sponge and some humidification beads. After sitting overnight it was ready to be filled with cigars.
Right now its holding a steady 71% humidity and I couldn’t be happier with the inexpensive and easy new humidor.
I came home from work to find a package waiting for me today. Inside I had some cigars from TechX. I’m really looking forward to smoking the La Vieja Habana ‘Fumas’ by Drew Estates. I plan on letting them acclimate in my humidor then smoking one next weekend.
I plan on getting a review up by Friday. I’m not sure what I am going to smoke just yet, but I think it will be a Romeo y Julieta Reserve Maduro.
Again, Thanks alot TechX i really appreciate the cigars.
