I was asked by a friend: "Why does it take such a long time to age cubans if this leaf is so superior?" I said "they just do". But seriously, you can give a good domestic a few month in the humi and it will improve considerably. Not with habanos, i hear people saying that they need two, three even four years or more for the cigar to develop. While I know that people say this from personal experience I can't find a logical explanation for this. I'll probably end up with the same response I gave to my friend huh?
