Dry Boxing

Lordjust2Lordjust2 Posts: 11
I noticed in one of the expert pick reviews it was suggested to dry box the graycliff turbo prior to smoking. I was under the impression that you dry box a cigar when it has been subjected to an unusual amount of humidity. Would there be any other reasons to dry box?

    When you have a cigar that burns inconsistently, such as one with an oily wrapper, it's beneficial to drybox prior to smoking to enjoy a more even burn. Unless you like touching up more than 4 times for every cigar...

    I agree with the above. I will add that I have had some cigars that burn much better with a couple days to a week in my small (20 count) humidor, with no humidity device in it, not seasoned. The cigars that I've dry-boxed range from the 5Vegas Relic to the Cohiba Sublime. If any line of cigars gives me burn issues, I throw them into the small humi for a few days before lighting them up. Usually fixes the issue.

    I have one of those travel humidors. The smaller the better but I've got a 15 count. With no humidification device I find they're perfect when I have a brand recommended to be dryboxed.

    As with anything in the cigar world, the choice is up to your own preferences.

    Turbos aren't too bad. Good for golfing.

    Agreed. There are some very nice Graycliff sticks. Like he said in the first part of his response it is all a matter of taste.

    Thanks guys. Great insight on the subject. I have had some burn issues with cigars in the past, so now I have a remedy for that.
