    This post is inspired by the recent thread about a new B&M's red cedar humidor. Less than a year ago, a small B&M called Brand Cigars opened up right down the street from my parent's house in CT (where I grew up), which is absolutely fantastic. Their selection is not great, but not terrible...

    I have a minimate igloo plastic lunchbox. I have been storing a dozen diesel unlimited in it with a small cigar gel jar for three days. I am not sure if something is happening to my cigars. They feel a bit spongy and another has a small tear. Could it be too humid or is that the natural state...

    If you drybox and the ambient RH is above what you run in your humi, is that really dryboxing? Seems like your drybox would just capture the humid air and, instead of your beads or whatever removing the humidity, the cigars would try to do it. Just wondering if there might be a major caveat...

    I opened my big tobacco bag which has all my other tobacco bags in it (I don't do mason jars, just because I don't smoke often enough to have fairly large quantities on me). And then I noticed that the hygrometer had jumped to 61%. Then to 75%. I guess it must be a pretty damn humid day...

    So I was smoking a torpedo this weekend. about 1/4 way down my wrapper split, I'm assuming that this is from the cigar expanding from hot moisture. Is it too humid of a cigar, or was I maybe smoking it too fast. I'm curious as to the cause:dunno:

    Hi everyone, I have been having a terrible problem lately with ALL of my cigars. For some reason, every single one is tunneling and/or not staying lit. After about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch after lighting a cigar the wrapper goes out and the filler continues burning for a little bit, only to...

    I'm starting to get concerned about the heat and my cigars getting beetles. It's been in the 90's for a couple days in a row now, and although its supposed to cool off soon come late may I'll have 90 degree temperatures everyday. My question is, when it does get hot again soon, would it cause...

    ...can you guys help me find one. I am getting pretty frustrated by the lack of options. Maybe we should just make the ultimate cigar case since it does not seem to exist. A case that holds at least 3 cigars, has a mini humidor inside and is as thin as possible - translation - not an annoying...

    I usually smoke outside on my (covered) balcony, and it seems that, when the air is very humid (when it's raining or foggy), the smoke starts getting harsh after just a few minutes, and even my favorite smokes turn into dog rockets. Anyone else experience this, or should I see a shrink?

  16. Cigar Questions
    Other than feeling soft to the touch and having burn problems, what is it about the taste of the cigar itself that tells you it is too humid inside?

    I'm brand new to this site and relatively new to cigars. I just bought my first humidor and set it all up. It has been 3 days now and the hygrometer is still reading about 85%. Is this too humid? Will it come down on it's own or is there a trick to fixing this? Any feedback and/or tips...

    I was smoking a cigar on the back porch last night during a light rain. I got to the last third of the cigar and it went out. I re-lit, but the cigar was mushy and all of the sudden, very heavy draw. It makes sense that it absorbed enough moisture and was just too wet to smoke. The problem is...
