What just happened here?

Ok. I was curious about the H. Upmann Vintage Cameroon that was in my humi for 4 months. The B&M I got it from had a walk-in that was constantly at 68 rh. The 20 count I had this in was at 72 rh. But I smoked about a half inch and it tasted like bone-dry newspaper. I ripped it apart to look inside and sure enough, dry as sand paper. Any ideas what happened here? Bum stick?

    sounds to me like the B&M screwed up and it got killed somewhere along the. Theres not much sitting in your and the B&M's humi is going to do if it was dried out 2 months before it sat in a good humi.

    I've had 2 of the vintage cameroons and the first was fairly fresh and remember it being "meh." The second was quite some time later, after spending quite some time in my humi (about a year at 68-70) and I just couldn't get into it at all. I just figured maybe my pallet changed or it was just a bum stick. Either way, I won't be running out to find more after I smoke my last one.

    If you want a cameroon that is absolutely fantastic, go for the Perdomo 91 Vintage Maestro Tubo. It's fantastic with some age on it and is a perfect autumn cigar. I can't have enough of those things.

    Were the stored in cello. If it ever spent a long time out of humidity in cello long enough to completely dry out, it is often difficult to restore. I'd say if you have more, take them out of cello stat but if this has happened you have already lost a lot of the oils. Also, you may want to do a little welfare check on your hygrometer. I now only use electric humdification systems with built in hygrometers. These things are life savers.

    I am using beads in my new Vinotemp 28 ct. Is the built in fan enough to move the moisure around?
