Generally speaking, cigars do mellow a bit with age. The intensity diminishes. But as has been mentioned, that takes years. Better to find a cigar you like now, and keep a few back to see how they age.

@Hoakin81 - I would listen to @bpegler above anyone else around here (including me!). He has more experience with, and knows more about, aging cigars than anyone on these forums.

Thanks again guys, appreciate all the advice.

May I be allowed a quick somewhat irrelevant question (with the subj.) in order to avoid creating a new topic? If yes,the question is what's the deal with these Bovedas?

Two calibrated hygrometers in my good air-tight tupperdor used to say RH was at 72% with the 69-Bovedas i had, so 3% more. So I switch to 65-Bovedas and now I have 69% in the tupperdor and that is 4% over.

I do not get it because a) Boveda claim that the packs are +/- 1 or 2% off the claimed value on the pack and b) they say you cannot use too many Bovedas.

Granted I am using double the recommended amount (2 60gr packs instead of 1 for a tupperdor that can accommodate 25 sticks) but I only did it to make sure everything is humidified ok and to make the packs last longer.

Am I missing something here?
