"Wet Sock" Cigar
I just lit up a Padron maduro londres, and the only thing I can say is that it feels and tastes like I just chewed on a soggy sock. 1/3 in it turned veeerrry bitter, and I was done. Prior to smoking this particular cigar, maybe 3 or 4 weeks ago I clipped it and noticed a fairly tight draw. Definitely too tight to smoke, so I let it rest a while and have checked it a few times since. My question is, would that premature cut and subsequent test draws affect the flavor? (some saliva remaining on the tip) Or was this a product of being still overly humidified? (had been resting in my humi at 68% 69 degrees for almost a month) I believe it did get a little over humidified for a couple days (traveling, bought a new humi, seasoned it, had this cigar in a bag with pillows) but that's been almost 2 months ago. Furthermore, would being in an a/c environment at above mentioned conditions, then going outside to a warmer fairly humid environment affect it? Condensation or something? I know these cigars are usually great, there's just so many factors that could've ruined it, and Im not sure which to blame, if any.
