Arturo Fuente Opus X.

On the boat, I've converted an Opus X box into a small humidor and have a test tube with a wet paper towel in it to keep the humidity up.

I like the Black Pearl Morados and the Black Pearls.I like Rocky Patel vintage 1990s but they dont seem very consistant with the flavor.Acid KubaKuba are great with a shot of Cuban coffee with the whipped sugar cream on top!Dark cigars and rums!

Have some Arturo Fuentes and some Pleiades on board. Best humidor is an Otter box with a cedar plank in the bottom. If the cigars are already well cared for, it requires almost no addition of water. I use a small humidifier tube to adjust the humidity when needed. AND...the box floats should I need to abandon ship.

I am going to the Curtis W. Draper's Li'l Puff this year. I will let you know what is "hot" in the world of cigars. We will be having dinner with Rocky Patel that night.

I really love the Aston Aged Maduro, but the Rocky Patel's Velvet are a close second.

Cuban: Romeo y Juliet- can only get them out of country and no need for humidor.
