Salvage

havanaalhavanaal Posts: 155 ✭✭
A tragedy occurred today. I was headed to a friends house with 2 VSG's, and as I leaned over my car to clear off snow they fell out of my vest pocket, into a puddle! Pretty much completely saturated on the outside. How do I salvage these magnificent sticks?

    No idea if it'll work, but you might try dry boxing them

    Dude hate to say it but I'd count it a loss
    Melting snow ain't really all that clean.

    I don't care, I'd dry box them then put them back in the humi and smoke em...ashton vsgs are ashton vsgs...doesn't get a whole lot better than that.

    I put em in the driest part of the house, next to heater in the bathroom. The wrapper is starting to shrivel up and look ugly. But I will smoke these even if it kills me.

    The worst thing for cigars is QUICK change... I'd put them in a old cigar box with a humidity pillow, or some beads... let it SLOWLY regulate itself to a normal Rh and then let it sit... for a LONG time... then SMOKE!

    Good advice here. I put them in a box, where they will sit until presentable. The lesson I've learned is never carry loose cigars, ever. I have enough tubes sitting around, and from now on when I leave the house, every cigar will be wrapped in plastic or in a tube.

    Good idea...never transport them naked...might get in trouble!!!

    I'm glad that you clarified this for me.... that his name is "Havana Al." For some reason, all I could make of it was "Have ****."

    I'm also quite curious to hear of the end result of all this. You'll have to post a review titled "Smoked a Previously Soaked VSG," or perhaps you could title it "VSG- Very Soaked 'Gar!"

    I will certainly report back on the smoking experience. I did drop a lit Gurkha Titan into the pool once, but of course that was a total loss (10 seconds after lighting it too!). I have a feeling I will have at least one soaked VSG smoked within the week, if for no other reason than 1) I'm dying to have it--which is why I took them out last Sunday to begin with and 2) I've spent so much time inspecting them now, I'm going to smoke when dry, and that's that.
