When will my fav sticks be back?

havent smoked in a few years.  I have some 2015 Monster tatuaje and a few comacho pre embargo that I have little faith in as my humidor dropped to 50 for a week unnoticed last year. Anyways I miss viaje zombies, old man and the c, a few others from that time 2012 I think. When do they release these, is there a certain time of year or anyway to be in the know?  Those zombie antidote look really cool.  I am guessing they sold within a day or two last year.  Wasn’t a fan of the super shots though.

    Might be a good time to replace the old favorites with some new ones.

    That's actually a pretty insignificant issue -- if they were sitting in your desk drawer for a month or so and you live in the desert then I would be concerned...

    The zombies come around every year around mid may.  The antidotes can still be had if you know where to look, but will/should be around again this year.  Can't help ya on the old man though,"they gone".  As stated if it truly was only a week or two and you are currently maintaining the humidor, those cigars should be in fine shape.

    That’s not long enough to really worry about. As long as temps didn’t go crazy. But

    That is good news.  However put my humidity checker, I forget what they are called, in and it said 60. My humidifier was set to 70 so must have changed over the years.  Is 60 still good enough to preserve oils and what not?  Bumped it up to 68 actual humidity. Cigars still feel healthy, no cracks or anything. 
    Antidotes can still be had!?  Saw the farmer bills and figured not up to par with originals.  Are antidotes really good, like original zombie good?
    the old mans, is there a tatuaje basically the same only not twisted, like the one that came with the three twisted in the small box.   Those were so good I still pheen even after 6 years now.

    60 would be pushing it. I think the oils would still dry but it would be pretty slow.  I’d go with 65.

    I still have an Old Man and the C, and the lancers that’s the single in there is an original El Trunfador (spelling?) which can still be found around. I don’t know if any online retailers that are selling them but I’m sure there are some, plus I’ve seen them in a few b&m’s where I live in CO.
