Saving dad's humi/Real Isom?/bring back from drying out
So here is a little bit of the story that brings me to where I am. You may notice from time to time I mention that I am smoking with dad. I may not post it a lot but when I smoke with him I like to include him in my post. Last early fall we almost lost him. It was completely out of left field but had to do with his past medical history. I won't go into the whole story of my fathers medical history as that is not what this thread is about. But since this has happened he no longer walks unassisted (he uses a walker) and pretty much always needs someone to help him out. Well now with some forgetfulness he hasn't checked up on his humidor like he used to. Pretty much from last Sept till now he hasn't done anything with it. Well I opened it and holy crap..all the stick are dried out and there literally was no humidification going on. He had 2 typical green sponges that were hard as a rock and two empty small gel jars that had nothing in them. So I am now currently in the middle of the process of re seasoning his humi. I believe most of his cigars are savable. I have removed them all and have them in baggies getting better. He has a pretty big humi that my uncle made him. I will post pictures below. So there is a little back story. No on to my questions. I found this Cohiba in his sticks. When he had one of his surgeries maybe 8 yrs back he got a lot of cigars for gifts from people at his old work. My question is does it look real? I have never seen a real cuban before. And my 2 nd question, my dad gave me this egg that he said has been in his humi for 4 yrs. It is pretty crispy. Do you think if I just let it sit in my humi for maybe 6 months or so it will be smokable? Sorry for the long winded thread but wanted to give some back story and explain a little. Again sorry for such a big thread but I wanted to share and see if either of my questions could find answers. Thanks!!
