    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...

    I take it some of the more seasoned smokers here don't have this problem. But I've only been smoking semi-consistently for about 3 years now, and I'm still learning. My recent problem is that I think my sticks are burning too hot. And I think it's charring the tobacco and coming through as a...

    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...

    Hi All, I want to build a desktop wineador, something in the range of a 12/16 bottle wine cooler. I have a couple of questions and would greatly appreciate some help, thanks in advanced ! 1) I do not have central heating/cooling and temperatures in my living space vary from as low as 10 c...

    My humidor, which I've finally gotten humidified with a humidifier soaked in distilled water (this is temporary until I get Boveda packs and move into a tuppordore), is showing 80 degrees and 66% humidity. What is the ideal temperature? If there is any. It does not sit in the sun, but my...

    My humidor is at a constant 72% humidity and 68 degrees. Is that okay?
  7. General Cigar Discussion
    My name is pat this will be my first post! The question is a touchy subject that I have seen people get into heavy arguments over, HUMIDOR TEMP. so this thread is for people to express what temp works best for them with aging, and weekly/monthly smokes. (Without arguments) As of right now I do...

    Gurus, I have more cigars than ever and three working humidors. I see a lot of banter about RH, but what about temperature? I live in Dallas, and our A/C is never below 78. How bad is this for my sweet little investments?
  9. General Cigar Discussion
    I read that the temp for cigar storage shouldnt be over 70, and that 73 is MAXIMUM. If my house is usually around 72-74 degress usually (unless i wanna pay a fortune monthy), would i be ok with just a humi instead of wineador to bring it down couple degrees. I almost feel it isnt worth it, to...

    About a week ago, we were in the middle of a heat wave here on the East Coast, and I was thinking about ordering some cigars from Florida and wondering what temperatures they might experience during shipment. I did a little googling, but couldn't come up with anything interesting. As I sat...

    So I'm currently home for the summer(college student) and have been storing my cigars in the basement, where they have stayed around 68-75 degrees, depending on the outside temp. My problem is when I go back to school in August, I just won't have the funds to pay to keep my apartment temp that...

    Hey Guys, I have a beautiful 190 count Waxing Moon humidor, that has been great for me over the last 6 months. I recently went out of town for about a week, and without realizing it, I cut off our AC. I live in Texas, where it has been in the triple digits for awhile now. All of that to say...

    I am done with my small 8 bottle Emerson wine cooler conversion, I have the new shelves in and 1/2lb. of beads in the back for humidity and my small starting collection of about 30 cigars in there (more to come) I have seen a lot of different suggestions on what people think the Temp. and Rh...
  14. Cigar Accessory Discussion
    Hey guys! I am having a problem over here. I have a humidor and an igloodor both filled with 65% beads. In the winter everything is good and dandy, the temperature is constant and the humidity stays constant as well. The summer though is another story. My humidor frequently goes as high as...
  15. Cigar Accessory Discussion
    I'm thinking about trashing my vino and getting a big cooler. However, the issue with the move will be that the cooler will be in a room that is ALWAYS hotter than it is outside. This means it will constantly be around 90* - 95* in the summer with the chance of days that are 100*+...

    Is it ok to have my humidors in the low to mid 70's? I don't really want to move them to the basement.
  17. General Cigar Discussion
    We keep the temperature at 61-65 degrees in our house because we like it a little cold, its good for the enviroment, and we like to save money. The bad part is that I cant seem to get my humidors over 60 degrees. Anyone have any tips? If I put towels over them will it heat it up in there...

    Hey I live in Florida and when I leave my house I turn off the A/C. Will this affect my cigars in my humidor? Thanks, David

    Not talking about any major fluctuations here. Range is 69-58. Home is set at 58 when I leave. Was just wondering if that was going to do any damage?
  20. General Pipe Forum
    So I've got the wine cooler humidor for my cigar stash and it got me thinking. If the mid 60's is ideal for cigars, is it the same for pipe baccy? Would it be a bad thing if I stuck my mason jars in the bottom shelf of the winodor? I just recently broke down and jarred all my open tins, so I'm...
