    Howdy folks, This is my first post, so if there is a thread that you can point me to that addresses my questions, that would be much appreciated. I work out of state and I am usually gone for 2-4 weeks at a time. Currently I have a 150 ct desktop humidor with about 75 cigars and a Cigar Oasis...

    I just bought a few infused/flavored cigars that include an Acid Kuba Kuba, a Drew Estate Java, and some CAO Flavours. Now, I understand that i'm not supposed to store these with my regular cigars so i'll be keeping these in their own tupperware container with a boveda humidipack. Here's my...

    I recently bought a new humidor online along with a bundle of cigars (no box) and the cigars will probably arrive a couple days before the humidor. What is a good way to store my cigars until my humidor gets here and the 3 days it takes to season the humidor? After it is seasoned the cigars will...

    Hey all, new member but have been a smoker for many years. I don't smoke frequently. I try to make time whenever I can but it's random and I usually smoke when riding on the golf course. I'd say I smoke 4-5 cigars per month. As much as I like my local b&m shops, buying online saves me $$ and I...

  7. Cigar Questions
    Hey guys, I know when you break it down it basically comes down to personal preference but I was just wondering exactly how much of a difference storing cigars at 65% are than to 70% RH? Also, even smaller, what about 68% RH compared to 65% or 70%. Is there really THAT much of a difference? Let...

    I normally put my newly purchased boxes in my coolerdor for storage. Was wondering if just keeping them out of humidity affect anything? Keeping in mind I don't plan on opening them anytime soon.

    OK, I've finally got a small stash of "better" cigars I'd like to store for a while. Is it safe to assume the moisture will eventually work its way through the cellophane? I don't want to unwrap them for a while, as the "fondle" factor is strong. Or would it be better to open one end of the...

    Is it better to cut up a plug completely before storing for long term aging, or leave it as is? I would imagine cut it up so that more tobacco gets plume across it, but one can never be sure! Can everyone share the different methods they use for different types of tobacco when aging? For...
  12. Habanos Discussion
    I am curious for those who are storing boxes like the Behikes, are you removing them from the cardboard outer box and the sleeves or leaving it intact? Also similar I have seen some guys post pictures of boxes of 3 tubes that come in a cardboard box, are you removing them as well?

    Prior to joining Puff, I stored all my boxes without the factory wrapping in my cooler. Now that I have joined this amazing site, and have the combined experience of all you guys within reach, I would like to know if anyone does something different eg. leaves the wrapper on. if so why. (I...

    I know that they should be stuck in the humi with the rest of my sticks, but should the tissue paper be left on? I am pretty full in my humi right now (both of them) and have the Oliva sampler coming tomorrow...so should I take the Camacho's out of the coffin and just rest them with the rest of...

    Alright, well when i first got into cigars i obviously didn't know very much (about a year and 2-3 months ago) and when i put all my cigars in my humidor i took the cellophane off, well i don't smoke very often, so most of my original cigars are still in that humidor, which kind of worries me...

    Came across these, was wondering what folks opinions are on vacuum sealed vs. using something like a ball jar. Amazon.com: Oxo Good Grips POP Rectangle 1/2-Quart Storage Container: Kitchen & Dining If you've got the time, link what you personally use. Unfortunately that's the smallest they...

    I read a thread last night about how many tins people have open. I've been pretty neurotic about tobacco drying out, so the only tin I'd opened is one of Uni Flake, which I was worried about drying up just days after opening. Reading that many people have over ten tins open at a time, many for...

    I now have a 200 ct humidor with an Oasis XL humidifier. Is it advisable to remove cigars from the cellophane while storing / aging. In the past (in small humidors) I have always left the cellophane on. Now I intend to age some of my better sticks. Curious as to what the protocall is on this...

    So I have an unopened box of AF's and a box of Padrons coming that I want to store for a year or so (if I can keep my hands off them). I only have desk top humis, a 100ct & a 50ct, so storing the unopened boxes in them is not an option. I'm thinking of putting them in the back of a closet...
