    Literally smoked ROTT for the first one and it was yucky due to humidity. 3 days dry boxing improved this 100%. I assume they will get even better... Read the full review here: Partagas (Cuba) Shorts Cigar Review - Much better after a few days dry boxing

    As I'd rather not have to buy a humidor simply for the use of dryboxing. What do you guys use? I was thinking just an old cigar box? Thanks Jim

    So its normally pretty dry up here so i dont have to worry about dry boxing.. my humi sits between 65-70% at any given time, but ive never really had draw issues until the last few times its been pretty humid out and rainy and so i was wondering what is the proper way to safely "dry box" i...

    Does anyone dry box their cigars and then use the wetting method? I would think that the filler rH would lower and then wetting would bring the rH of the wrapper up. Just curious.

    I have seen a lot of people talk about dry boxing and I have a couple of questions. Right now I have a 50 ct desktop and a winodor. The 50ct is the first humi I bought so it has been seasoned for a while. I am looking to get one of the go-to boxes from Ed. Is there anything special about a dry...

    I need to place an order with Heartfelt and was thinking of adding some 60% beads, to put into a cheap travel humidor, to use as a dry box. Would keeping a few sticks at 60% accomplish the same thing as dry boxing?

  12. General Cigar Discussion
    So I've read about dry boxing and how it helps the quality of the smoking experience, better burn, etc. I thought that the high desert climate where I live was enough, but have experienced uneven burns, sticks going dead, and very slow burns. Even if I took them out an hour or two before I...
  13. Cigar Accessory Questions
    Ive noticed on occasion some of my sticks have burn issues and i think this is linked to humidity. My humis are all between 65-70% and 68 degrees. I do notice they burn considerably better if left out of the humi for a few hours. So my question long do you dry box your cigars and just...
  14. General Cigar Discussion
    Hi all. Over the short time I've been smoking cigars I've noticed a dissappointing trend. Sticks that have been in my humi for a while (a few days or weeks) just don't taste as good as cigars bought at a B&M and smoked that day. For instance, I bought a Fuerte cigar locally and smoked it an...
  15. Cigar Questions
    I've never tried dry boxing cigars - in fact, I never heard of it until I read about it here. Does dry boxing improve the flavor, the burn, both??? Is it worth doing? Does it work better with some cigars but not with others? I generally store my cigars at 65%. During dry boxing, would I...

  19. General Cigar Discussion
    I have come across some burn issues as of late, and the more research I do around here, the more I hear the term "dry boxing". I can imagine this means letting a cigar sit in a box, at room temp/humidity, but I am not sure. Here are some questions I have: 1.) What is the process used to...
  20. General Cigar Discussion
    One of the local shops in my area always keeps their walk in at above 70% humidity, often times pushing 75%. As you can imagine, I have had nothing but bad times in regards to burn issues and the nasty bitterness associated with over humidified cigars. This led me to start going to other shops...
