Sounds like a dream retreat for you. I love RP cigars and would have loved to been in your shoes. I keep at least 3 RP Edge's in my Hummi at all times. Even when I have some at home I always buy a couple when I go to my local store.
Also for the term Capa; I'm not saying you are wrong and I am right. All I am saying is that I put this list together from stuff I have heard and researched; it was like trying to write my own dictionary in a way. I would go to one site and it would tell me one thing. The next site was totally different on the same term. So again thanks for the help and comments on trying to keep me straight.
I believe I got that term from Cigar Aficionado.com.
Again Thanks,2014 Polar White Mercedes E350

I noticed the freezing to prevent hatching of larvae.
Is this done already when you buy them from a store or would you have to do this yourself?
I'm pretty new to this!
Any suggestions for must try sticks?

Sorry for the delay BluE46 but here is your answer.
Most of the large manufacturers of Cigars do freeze their product before shipping to ensure no problems with tobacco beetles. But some products do happen to contain the beetle but it is very rare.
If you find that you have beetles then freezing will kill the adult bugs and crack the larva so they will not hatch.
When you unfreeze the cigars, you must do so after 48 hours. After the 48 hours, move them into the coldest part of your refrigerator and let them warm up slowly. Let them stay in your refrigerator for another 24 hours or so then place back in your humidor. If you place them directly into your humidor with a 70-degree, 70-percent humidity environment; you may make them burst from the rapid absorption of moisture. Just be sure to take very good care and time when doing this process.2014 Polar White Mercedes E350
