Another year, another final batch of cigars. This was my "least productive" year since I started keeping track in 2014, but that's okay. My "official" cigar total for the year was 509, and a pinch under 3000 for the whole time period. Hope you all get, at least, a box of your faves for Christmas!

Why do you reckon the dip this past year? Less smoking? Less interest in rolling? Less time? Less availability of leaf?

Less smoking? Of my own, a little, but not the answer.

Less interest? Somewhat, but I certainly still enjoy doing it.
Less leaf availability? Not at all. Plus, I usually have 35-40 pounds of leaf “in stock” at any given time.

Less time? First tangible answer, brought about by job, family, personal goals, exercise, and cooking.

The biggest reason, though, is that there is only so much room at the inn. I keep a couple dozen+ of each of my own blends around always (several dozen, in some cases) and while I have more than my fair share of humidors, they are pretty well stocked. So, if they don’t have a place to go, there isn’t a reason to roll them!

That sir is a lot of cigars. When Kurt said there were still like 2000 not pictured for the person he is helping after seeing all that was in the photo I thought.. Surely this is not the norm. However; witnessing your, Kurt, and Zeds cigar collections points out that I am simply a lightweight with my 1 humidor and small cooler :D

I see you got those Spanish Galleon sticks. How were they?

Actually, from my experience DC, you are the norm and Craig, Zed, and I have... “issues.”

The Galleons are pretty decent, tho there is an occasional klunker.
