    Quick question for the coolidor veterans. Should I leave my boxes cracked open inside the cooler, or will the humidity still reach the cigars just fine if they are closed?

    OK, so this has only happened on two cigars so far, but it has me worried. After I get about 1/4 in, I notice that the wrapper about 1/2 the way in starts to crack. In one instance, it actually started to unwrap after cracking. My humidor fluctuates between 66 and 68, so I'm not thinking that's...

    As some of you know, I'm fairly new here. I have a question, again. I have within the past 2 weeks, added 3 boxes to my humi and I just smoked a cao soprano that was rock hard and heavy and I could hear the wrapper cracking and splitting as I smoked it. Any ideas? I would like to see how this...

    Just smoked a RP Vint. '92 and into the last part of the 2nd third, the wrapper started to crack/peel in a small spot. Kept puffing and later it got worse. See the attached. I got the cigar from CI about 5 days ago and kept it in my humidor. RH is about 70%-72%. I smoked others from the...

    Just wondering if the wrapper is cracked or is starting to crack is it because of excessive moisture or from not enough moisture? Seems like I've seen it answered both ways and was wondering what everyones opinion was.

    I only smoke a few cigars a month due to the winter, but it seems like about one out of every two ends up with a crack int he wrapper. I have them in a humi at 65% and about 68-70 degrees. I think the humi isn't completely airtight. The lid closes nicely, but its got glass and I suspect it...

    Help , I have a vinotemp thermoeletric humidor and my cigars are dry and are cracking at the mouth part. I have 70% humidity beads which the temp ranges from 55 to 65 during the day and reads a steady 70% humidity. I have enough beads in there? Am I doing something wrong?

    I have been keeping my humi at 68/70% humidity for a while now and its been working out pretty well. Also I smoke outside and the humidity does at times go up to 80% or so. So what I wanna ask is when you are about a quarter-half way though a cigar and the wrapper starts cracking around the band...

    Rocky Patels X-Outs have been out for a while and I have learned what the letter codes translate to, but now CI has "Rocky Patel Nicaraguan Factory Selects" They have a "Liga A" in 5 sizes and "Liga B" in 3 sizes. Who knows what blend they are? Just want to know before I buy...

    So, the past 3 smokes I had outdoors (been between 40-50f), my wrappers have cracked and peeled. This was stright from the humi to outside. Do I need to let them sit a little before I head out and fire them up? All the ones I have smoked inside have done just fine.

    So I now have six cobs that I have been smoking in a random rotation and every single one of them is showing small hairline cracks to different degrees.. I even have cracks in one I barley smoke because the bowl is so small.. I have attempted to smoke slower and cooler and let them rest and...

    So today I checked out the Tinderbox for deals. They have a small cabinet humidor that they keep discounted cigars in for 30-40% off. Usually last stick in a box, discontinued blends, slightly damaged sticks, or stuff they just couldn't move. I saw three Cabaiguan robustos at 30% discount. The...

    Hey all, I have been having an issue lately with some wrappers cracking. It only happens where I hold the cigar. I know I'm not squeezing them so that would not be it. My humi is in great shape at a constant 65. I did notice that this does not seem to be an issue with the more oily...
  15. Cigar Accessory Questions
    I just received a pound of beads and am wondering if others have ever busted open the cheap pucks found in the 20 count humis and replaced the oasis crap with beads. I've got enough beads to last quite a while...I hope.

    I have some 65% beads that are in tubes. When I take them out of the humi, there are little bead "crumbs" left behind. I don't remember seeing those crumbs when I put the beads in the tubes. Anyone else experience this?

    Ok, here's my situation. Today, I woke up to a really nice and sunny day and had the rare opportunity to an hour alone out back as my wife went out with my daughter for a few hours. I realized I had pretty much only smoked maduros the last month and wanted to try a natural. I decided to grab...

    I noticed that some of my cigars wrapper leaf is cracking. Anyone have an answer to why this could be? The humidity has been relatively constant but the temp has been fluctuating a little bit. Thanks for the advice

    I keep my cigars very close to 70% or a little less using PG gel tubes. Tonight I decided to try a C.A.O. mx2 toro thats been sitting in the humi for a little over a month.After 10 minutes in, a small crack started to form around the cigar about an inch below the band. Its now all the way around...

    Hey everyone, I have had my cigars for about 8 months now, there is about 12 cigars left in a humi that holds 20-25 cigars and now most of my cigars are starting to crack at the open end. I try to keep the level between 70 nd 80. Is the humi to dry or to wet?? The cigars feel softer than I...
