Are 14% humidity and 71 degrees 4 mph winds ideal outdoor smoking conditions?

I did set the cigar out on the porch to acclimate it for about 20 minutes but at about half an inch in I heard that tell-tale popping sound of the wrapper cracking. I was holding it and I even felt it pop too. LOL.

    Sounds like you either have a construction issue or it was not stored well. You should have no problem smoking in 71 degree, no wind.

    I'm pretty sure my humidor is doing ok. What about the 14% humidity? That's what I was thinking the problem was.
    It's a Obsidian White Noise Gordo 4.5 x 60. Ecuador Habano Wrapper. (I don't normally choose a 60 ring gauge but it was a sprint sale thing and I jumped on it.)

    I smoked outside today, windy, 60, rh was low 20s. I don't think it'd matter. I can see smoking too humid might pop the wrapper, but too dry wouldn't do that. Hmmmm. Dud? How long had that stick rested?

    8 months in the cooler in it's original box. Then a few days lately in one of my desktops. About 65% in each. It was tasty. But burned crooked at the halfway point but the wrapper crack never seemed to be a real problem in the long run.

    Sometimes, *** just happens I guess. I can't think of a single thing I'd do differently than you did. Glad it wasn't a total loss though.

    gotta grew with gray on this. Bob - do you have more of this same cigar from the same order? If so any problems - How have they smoked? Bet it was just a single bad stogie, those conditions sound pretty good to me.

    Yes, I have most of a box still. I bombed/gifted a handful. Maybe smoked a total of three myself but I don't recall any problems. And this is the only one I've had lately. Probably, hopefully, a one-time thing.
