63% for Humidor

ZAPZAP Posts: 186 ✭✭
Any thoughts on this level for keeping cigars over the winter?  I'm in MN and struggling to keep it higher than that.  I usually do not store cigars over the winter but liked a few deals recently and have 20-25 cigars to hold for the winter...5-10 of which I'll try to smoke this fall or winter or on vacation in the spring.

I've had a couple at this % and they seem to smoke Ok but was curious what the experts think!

    63 is a pretty smoke-able number. If your looking to age, you may want to go a wee bit higher, but just to hold it should be fine. If you want to keep it stable, just put your humidor in a spare cooler.

    When was the last time you reseasoned your humidor? That’s not a bad number but I wouldn’t want it to get any lower.

    Also don’t forget that humidors Work better when they are close to full.
