I’ll be changing my humidor to 65% from 72%, should I take some cigars and place them in a separate container at 72% to smoke while it transitions, or will cigars left in humidor be ready within a few weeks? Many are large gauge and I’ve heard it can offset humidity of cigars pretty significantly causing them to burn wrong.
They should smoke better at the lower humidity. I wouldn’t leave any at 72rh.
They will stabilize, expect a few weeks to months, unless they're Gurkha's, in which case you give them 10 years and check one. Following its certain failure, throw the rest away.
"There is nothing so in need of reforming as another person's bad habits." Mark Twain
I think I would just switch them all over to the 65% and keep smoking them as I please, giving no thought to whether or not they have settled down to the 65% or not.
"Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another." - Proverbs 27:17
Some people dry box their cigars a day or two before smoking them, I don't see changing the humidity in your humidor any differently, just change out the Bovedas and smoke them normally.

Don't forget how well instant espresso powder works if you make a paste with it and slather it all over the inside of your humidor.
Done. Now what?
Also.... will I finally get the coffee notes that the expert reviewers always talk about?
