Why is it all shriveled...

Matt MarvelMatt Marvel Posts: 930
Often times when I close, I take a cigar to work with me in a cigar case with a built in humidification device. Since it was pretty hot out, I didn't want to leave it in the car, so I took it in and put it in my drawer at work. I get to my car tonight and take it out to light it up, and the wrapper was shriveled up and it was kind of bent in the middle. Not wanting to waste a tasty Sun Grown label, I lit it up and it seemed fine. I got through maybe the first 1/3 and there was no sign of shrinkage or anything and it turned out to be a great smoke. Anyone have any ideas here?

    My first thought when I read the subject line was, "Did you go swimming?" And then I read on... no idea.

    lol..thats hella funny...swimming ...lol...there needs to be a pill to correct that issue for all men lol...

    it can shrivel from what I know can be the temp difference and fluxuation...also, humidity fluxation can do that do....too much humidity and then to 70% makes the wrapper shrivel..i had it happen...but never ruins a smoke

    On a serious note... I just cannot picture this "Shriveled" you speak of... I don't know what you mean...

    Was the wrapper loose and crinkly? Or did the actual leaves and such inside the cigar get smaller in size? I don't know what causes this and cannot picture what it looks like let alone try to explain why...

    There was no sexual implications in his post, and no mention of Miller Lite. I think it is clear that someone has hacked Lassy's account. Someone needs to email The Beard.
