Worried about my sticks

Hey guys I'm pretty new to the cigar world. Been enjoying them for about 3 months now. I recently bought a 10 pack sampler from this site. I put them plus my 3 already on hand in a man o war cigar box. I just had the sticks in there. Now I'm worried about them drying out. They was stored in a cool place out of the sun. For about a week. The last 2 I cut has came unrivaled. Is this a sign of drying out? How can I fix this issue? Please help?

    are you storing them in a dry box? If so it could pull some of the moisture from them.  I store mine in a plastic box with 65% Boveda packs.  

    I was born a fool, and just got bigger!

    Look up humidity.
    Look up Boveda.
    Look up humidor. 
    Look up seasoning a humidor.
    Look up hydrometer.

    And in the meanwhile put them bad boys into a clean Tupperware container with some sort of humidification device. Give them a few weeks...they'll rejuvenate.

    Also as for them unraveling. How much did you cut off? Never cut past the shoulders. Rule of thumb is only cut off what you absolutely have to. I usually just barely cut off enough to get just a touch of the cap.

    Cut past the shoulder then there’s nothing to hold it together. A very common beginner mistake.
