    Any of the cigar experts have thoughts on Gurkhas? Cigar International sent a catalog yesterday (didn't know companies still used catalogs). It had some items I was Interested in pursuing. That last
    Page had a deal for 21 cigars for $49. The link is list below. I probably would get the:

    Symphony robusto
    Double Maduro toro
    Widow maker Maduro Churchill
    Legend Vintage '01 XO

    I have never been a fan of Gurkhas. It is not that they are bad... they just aren't very good, and there is usually better out there for similar money.

    If you like Gurkhas, great... then this looks like a nice deal.

    But you could also consider the Horn o Plenty sampler (http://www.cigarsinternational.com/p...D212&scSlide=5) which gives you 5 Gurkhas, but also CAO America, Partagas and 5 Vegas as well. For the same $49 you are getting a lot more value, even if you wind up not caring for or hating the 5 Vegas (whenever I get a bundle that includes 5 Vegas, I invariably wind up giving them away).

    So if a cigar is "box pressed" does that generally mean it is of somewhat higher quality? Or is there no correlation at all between the two?

    Boxed pressed cigars are square or rectangular from being tightly pressed into a box.

    There is no direct correlation to quality and being box pressed. It is merely a style of packaging. Some swear by it, others swear at it.

    Question: How do I cut a perfecto cigar, specifically a Fuente Hemingway Short Story? Do I cut both ends?

    No, you do not need to cut both ends of the Fuente Short Story. Simply cut the cap as you normally would and light the other end. It will burn and expand perfectly.

    I'm curious what products you guys prefer for maintaining the proper humidity in smaller humidors (30-50 cigars)

    Lead me not into temptation - I can find the way myself

    Gary, I use 3 of these Drymistat humidifiers in my 50 cigar humidor. They seem to work pretty well. I only re-fill them every few months and the three of them keep the humidity at 65% according to my hygrometer.

    I don't use a smaller humidor, but I've used Heartfelt beads in my winecoolidor for years and they have done an outstanding job. They seem to last forever and require very low maintanance.
