Ever hear of Parodi by Avanti? In the humi or separate?

I got these cigarillos and they're not bad! Have a different smell to them and not wrapped...Should/Can I keep them in my regular humidor or will that scent negatively effect my other smokes?

    if im not mistaken those are Dry Cured (aka fire cured)
    this means that they have been baked and specifically dried out. they need no humidor at all, but of course they are not designed to age either.

    Oooo Ok! I thought that was just a flavor-enhancing thing...didn't know it meant that also. Thanks man!

    Parodi cigars are made in my hometown. A favorite cigar of Clint Eastwood. The owner sends boxes to him all the time and he was smoking them in a couple of his movies. We used to smoke them as kids when we stole them from someone's father. Don't think I could smoke one today.

    There are 2 different blends. The regular Parodi is just tobacco (maybe cured as Kuzi mentioned). The Avanti is anisette flavored. Those I would not recommend putting in a humi with other cigars. They have a very strong licorice aroma which would soak into non-flavored cigars.

    Gotcha! Yeah it's a very strong smell...a ziplock bag almost helps...ha! I took it out and moved it

    Didn't realize it was a favorite of Mr. Eastwood! Maybe that's why I feel like a badass when smoking them...
