    They can send all they can't get rid of to me.
    People think they are so rebellious and original, when really they are just banal, boring and dumb.

    I would be in line too.

    I smoked another regional cigar this time a Bolivar from UAE. It was the size of Siglo VI but sadly it was plugged. I remember your dremmel experience with Siglo VI and this time your dremmel would be useful.

    The Siglo VI has those problems. If you do not keep them more humidified than normal they close up. You have to keep those at 70% humidity instead of the regular 65%. You don't have to use a Dremel, any cordless drill with a 3/16ths inch bit will do.

    I thought that 65% was the British thing to reduce the excise taxes on tobacco imports. To me 70% was always the norm.

    How long did you keep them in the humidor like that before you smoked them? It should have helped it.
    Some people like their cigars a bit drier I guess.

    I got it as a gift and smoked it the next day, the other cigar that came with it was fine. I suspect it was the construction issue.

    Well then at least it was free. I could have made it work. It probably was a construction issue. In such cases, you need to remove some material from the cigar to clear the obstruction. I have ended up pulling out a leaf from the end after clearing the obstruction with the drill. It got caught on the drill bit and came out with it.

    White Owl grape cigarillo at work, and a clay pipe full of a captain black, price albert mix when I got home.

    Please do not tar and feather me for smoking this rubbish, but there are NO good tobacco stores in my town!
