    So I smoked a La Aurora ADN a few nights ago, and I had constant burn problems with it. I have two 69% Boveda packs in my tupperdore with about 67 or so cigars, which have been in there since about August. The cigar had been resting since 2017, and I had 65% packs in there before I got these...

    That is the question. When the vendor gives you the option, one of four options, in fact, which do you pick and why? Ideally, I don't want them opened, however, I also don't want to roll the dice with getting moldy cigars. So if an inspection is recommended, I can live with that. I have a...

    Hey folks. Sorry it's been a while, I've been off posting on other forums. Today I went to my B&M for two new Boveda packs for my tupperdore (7L KlipIt). The two packs I have in there are done. Question is, should I put both in there, or just one? Or start with one and see where the RH is...

    So I have been using 69% Boveda Packs for my humidor for about 6 months now, and things have been going ok. The humidity was never 69% (especially in the dead of winter) but it usually hovered around 65%-67% which was ok with me. However I got lazy and did not noticed that my packs had dried up...

    Hi everyone. I am hoping you can help me get my humidor under control and advise whether my sticks are ruined or not. I've attached several images showing whats going on. It's a Savoy box, I have 2 boveda 72% bags in it and a digital hygro reading 76 Degrees F and 72% humidity. The box...

    Do you change your humidor rh% on winter vs summer due to ambient humidity and weather?

    Habanos says 65-70 rh is good for Cuban cigars. But a lot of people on this forum says 60-65 rh is good for summer days. I cannot underdtand why Habanos says 65-70 rh and %95 of this forum users say 60-65 rh. Can you tell me difference for burn and taste?

    Hi, Here is 80F in summer and I don't have any solution for temp. I am using 69 rh boveda in humidor and humidity is 65-66 rh. I have only Cuban cigars. Problem is cigars are spongy and have bitter taste. I made some research on internet and some web sites says that don't care actual...

    So I got my first tupperdor about 6 weeks ago, bought around 20 cigars and put them in, along with a 72% boveda pack and some cedar sheets. I've noticed the last 3 cigars I've smoked (cc Fonseca delicias, Avo classic, AF short story) feel like they barely stay lit, the draw is tight, smoke...

    Will my humidor get damaged if I do not maintain it's humidity even though it has no cigars in it and won't for who knows how long?
  12. Cigar Accessory Discussion
    I'm building a Tupperdore today, and only two places in my area have Boveda Humidity packs. The first place closest to me has three 72% packs, but that's a little high for me. I'm waiting until the other place 7 miles away opens at 11 to call them and ask them if they have any in stock. I...

    Hi folks, I'm new here, I signed up looking for help with a problem. There's so much information out there, that it's driving me nuts, and I think I might be overthinking or worrying too much about this. So any help you can give me is greatly appreciated. I bought my first humidor (10-cigar...

    So, my problem, which is always the same and remains constant is humidity. My humidor is about 75-80% full. Inside it, there are 3-72* Boveda packs and a large rectangular Xikar gel humidifier that uses the PG. I keep my AC at 70-73 degrees and the outside temp in Dallas is usually 86-94*. My...

    Hey all, so I live in Fort Worth, Texas and the humidity is really high here. I have a Raching Cabinet humidor that I bought from a B&M cigar lounge and luckily it saved all my cigars once, but now the humidity is up to 80. I have it set at 68 but since Texas has high humidity, I don't really...

    My friend Paul came to visit today and he fixed the lip with very thin wood that fit just so snugly around it. Hes a pro carpenter I should have asked him in the first place. It holds perfect humidity now and passes all the leak tests. Im so pleased that I don't have to worry about my habanos :D
  17. Cigar Accessory Discussion
    I just reseasoned my humidors but they are still leaking even though I am using extra boveda packs at a higher RH % than needed. I don't want to buy new ones at this point and I think weather stripping would make it worse. is there anything I can do? like spraying the bottom of the humidor with...

    I've heard a lot say 65% but I read that 70% is the best to age them at is this true?
  19. General Cigar Discussion
    First off, I've only started smoking since Dec of '14 so I know my palette is still unrefined. From my first cigar, I was hooked. I went to a B&M, bought a cigar and ended up going back and getting more. Then I found CBids in January and filled my humidor with a couple orders from them. I...

The 25 cig cap. humidor is the Cuban humidor, My Cuban humidor is alittle more than over stocked and only in the teens in my 75 cig capacity one (the 25...
