Hit by a Wave of Uncertainty

Hit by a Wave of Uncertainty

Have you ever lit up a cigar then, half way through, regretted your decision? I’m not talking about a cigar that tastes bad. In this case we are talking about a tried and true stick that always seems to deliver what is expected of it.

Product Review: Cigar Oasis Excel with Smart Humidor

I have a little something different for you this week- a long overdue review of the Cigar Oasis Excel. If you are not familiar with the product, it’s an electronic humidification device that releases moisture into the air when the humidity dips below a percentage that you specify. Pretty straightforward, right?

The device Cigar Oasis sent me to evaluate is the Excel unit, which is designed to handle up to 300-count humidors (or 4 cubic feet). It’s larger than some …
