kuzi16:if you are keeping your RH at 70% then this has a tendency to happen. try keeping the RH at about65-68%. this tiny difference will have huge results on maduros.
camgfs:I have found the same issue with Maduros. I "dry box" the maduro sticks that tend to burn poorly. I use an empty 20 count humidor (an empty wooden cigar box works). Store the stick that you want to smoke in the empty 'un-humidified' box for anywhere from an hour to a full day. This will let the wrapper dry out just a little and allow it to burn better. Do keep in mind that the cigar will not become too dry to smoke if it is stored on a box rather than left out on a counter. If you can get the humidity down in your humidor, that works....but if not, dry-box for a bit and it should work out fine.
fla-gypsy:Send them all to me for analysis!
Hayblet:in all my experiences I can't say I've had a Maduro constantly go out, only time I have had that happen is when I'm smoking while playing Magic the Gathering since I tend to focus on what my enemies are doing more than I pay attention to my stick.
