Cigar Humidity, I'm sure this will ruffle a few feathers

Scotch_n_SmokeScotch_n_Smoke Miami, FLPosts: 90 ✭✭

So I'm a big fan of Nick Perdomo and his cigars, they occupy about 70% of my humidor and I have really taken to these videos because I feel like info directly from a manufacturer is some of the best info you can get. However, I feel like this one might be a little polarizing, especially on this forum of salty dogs. What are your thoughts? I have been going by the 70/70 for a long time and being in Florida, I feel like maybe I should drop my humidity a little after watching this. But I tend to enjoy a spongy cigar feel.

Also, are there any other manufacturers out there giving great info life this?

    I like it dryer than that. My smoking shelf stays at about 62 or 63. 70% was popularized because green floral foam, the crap that comes in all of those stock humidifiers inside the humidors, keeps a humidor at about 70% when it's saturated with water, with the wood in your humidor soaking up the spikes and the imperfections in it slowly releasing humidity into the room. That is the theory anyways...

    Don’t get me wrong, it’s just YouTube seems saturated with the I’ve been smoked a month noobs and just bought a second tower to house all of my Fighting **** and Victory Sinclair’s. Great yard gars and my shop cuts me a deal because I meet Rocky Patel once while staying at a Holiday Inn. 😂😂 Ok I’m done.

    Let just this: I think this is a great video and accurate information from someone who Actually knows. But as a new smokers the flashy video with the guys with tower humi and millions of views is going to take my attention. It’s a sad reality in our hobby but luckily there are some great forums for noobs who want to learn can go to.

    65%RH, 65-75*F(Winter/Summer) here, zero problems, everything ages fine.
    Smoking when very humid out I’ll take on out and let it dry box just in the houses 50-55%RH for about a day, maybe less or more burns great.

    If you quote me do the @TX98Z28 in your text or I won't be notified of your quote, Thanks.

    I use the 62% or 65% Bovedas and my wine cooler can't be set higher than mid 60s (thought it climbs in the summer). My cigar crate I keep in the coolest room in the house right now since I don't have central air.

    I like the lower humidity for smokability.

    I'll gladly bomb you Tuesday for an Opus today.

    @VegasFrank I was wondering where that started. It's what almost everyone has preached to me since i started smoking. I never even took into consideration different times of year or regions even.

    @deadman So if I just buy tower humidor I can make a living on YouTube.... I guess now is the time to try...lol Great insight though.

    Correct but you can only smoke cheap bundle cigars. And you have to always say “for the money it make a great yard gar”. Your top shelf must consist of Vintage 1990s and Ghurkas that you say you are saving for a special occasion.

    70% and 70° was supposedly started by Zino Davidoff.
    Rumor is he didn’t even smoke cigars.

    Friends don't let good friends smoke cheap cigars.

    62-68% is just fine Francis. My temp stays at 66 cause of the winecoolers
